COVID-19 Disinfection Act ; Household lax and 70% alcohol are used to disinfect the house and facilities



 It is time to open the windows, which had been tightly closed all winter, to ventilate the room and clean the house in earnest for spring. It is time for more indoor cleaning and disinfection because the coronavirus has increased the time to live indoors.The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended that household rocks and 70% alcohol be used to disinfect homes and facilities. You can wet a cloth with household locks and wipe the bathroom, sink, sewer, toilet, floor, etc. repeatedly. Rocks must be diluted in water. In the case of 4% Lax, dilute it at a ratio of 25mL in 1L of water and 5% Lax is diluted at 20mL in 1L of water.



 Rocks are inappropriate for metal or colored clothes. In this case, 70% alcohol can be used instead. Wipe off commercially available disinfectant ethanol with a disposable cloth. Alcohol-based wipes include home appliances, handles, electric switches, faucets, keyboards, mobile phones, desks, dining tables and chairs. If there is a stain or a lot of moisture, it is recommended to wipe it once more with a dry mop.


When disinfecting the house using rock or alcohol, make sure to ventilate before cleaning and wear health masks and disposable gloves. When spraying disinfectant, make sure that it does not come into contact with the eye or mucous membrane and do not rub. Dispose of masks, gloves, and disposable cloth used for disinfection. After disinfection, wash your hands and body with soap and sanitizer.


When disinfecting with vinegar, dilute the water and vinegar at a ratio of 3:1, then put them in a sprayer and spray them on curtains, bedding, mattresses, sofas, etc. After spraying, wipe with a dry mop to avoid stains or debris. It is effective to sprinkle vinegar frequently when using it.


In order to prevent coronavirus, private cars are often used instead of public transportation. Since cars are also enclosed indoors, molds and germs are likely to reproduce, so they are likely to lose immunity to the respiratory system and to be exposed to viruses. Therefore, indoor hygiene management of cars should be thoroughly carried out.


The easiest place to contaminate cars is the air conditioner & heater filter, which filters out the outside wind, so various pollutants or molds reproduce easily. The inside and around the air vent where the air conditioner wind comes out should be cleaned with a special cleaning agent, and the air conditioner filter should also be changed periodically.


Disinfect transmission words and steering wheel that are frequently touched with hands. Wash your hands often with disinfectant and cloth, and wash your hands cleanly with soap or hand sanitizer after driving.


The interior of the vehicle is frequently dusted and sun-disinfected with sheets or mats. Use a vacuum cleaner to remove dust or crumbs from snacks. To maintain pleasant indoor air, open windows frequently to ventilate indoor air while driving.
