13 Bad Cleaning Habits You Didn’t Realize You Had

3- Spraying disinfectant and wiping it up immediately

“Most household disinfectant holds a three- to 10-minute dwell time, which means the product needs to sit wet on a surface for it to actually disinfectant,” says Karina Neff, president and CEO of MaxiMaids. “Also note that it’s important to remove debris or dirt from the surface with a microfiber towel before disinfecting.”

Cleaning mistakes

Those are just two of the ways you’ve probably been using disinfectants wrong. To properly disinfect, wipe down the surface with your towel to remove soil, debris, and dirt, and then spray the surface with your disinfectant. Follow the label instructions for the product dwell time, then wipe up. Neff is a fan of Clorox Disinfecting Spray because it’s EPA tested and approved, as is Lysol, which is one of the few products that’s also been proven to kill coronavirus on surfaces.
