What kills COVID-19?

With all the misinformation out there about the coronavirus, it’s nice to hear facts from a solidly vetted agency.  The EPA has published a list of approved coronavirus disinfectants.  They happen to be largely Clorox and Lysol products, but this is not a paid ad for either of those.  And I highly doubt that the EPA is in their pocket.

You can go to the EPA website at epa.gov for more info.  Here’s the list:

  • Clorox Multi Surface Cleaner + Bleach
  • Clorox Disinfection Bathroom Cleaner
  • Clorox Disinfecting Wipes
  • Lysol Clean & Fresh Multi-Surface Cleaner
  • Lysol Disinfectant Max Cover Mist
  • Purell Professional Surface Disinfectant Wipes

The CDC also throws in diluted household bleach or alcohol that’s at least 70%.

Notice that, whatever you’ve heard, vodka is NOT on the list.  And by the way, these are for cleaning surfaces, NOT drinking.  Though if you drink them, they’ll kill the virus … by killing you.
