We all know, now more than ever, how important it can be to efficiently and adequately clean surfaces in order to prevent the spread of illness bearing germs. As we continue through flu season, with the added concerns of COVID-19, choosing cleaning products is especially important. To help us choose wisely, the EPA has public resources to aid us in selecting what we use to clean throughout our daily lives and routines.
The process is easy enough: First thing, check your cleaning supplies for the EPA number, and then compare that number to the lists in the links below. Tip: Be sure to follow the instructions for the products you use!
