How to use cleaning wipes
If you already have cleaning wipes around the house, you still want to be certain that you're using them the right way. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), disinfection doesn't happen immediately—it can actually take up to three to five minutes.
Although wipes are on the EPA's list of disinfectants, you may not be enough to keep whatever surface you're cleaning—like a countertop, for instnace—wet for the recommended amount of time to kill germs.
As a good rule of thumb, you may want to set a timer so you can monitor surfaces and ensure they're still wet. You may also want to make sure that you're sanitizing frequently used objects and surfaces daily, especially things like doorknobs, keyboards, faucet handles, and more. You don't want to forget your phone, either—you can even best practices, and advises that if you're using wipes, you should make sure you're only wiping in one one direction, as studies have suggested that doing so can reduce the risk of recontamination.
