We cannot go back to our pre-COVID days," Dr. Bonnie Henry said. "We have to find that balance that allows us to get things moving … but not to go back to the place where this virus can take off."
As Covid-19 is not our everyday virus, we all are helping in prevent the spreading of the coronavirus. Let's talk about how appliances at home can benefit us to stop a range of viruses, as well as pathogens that transmit disease.
1. Washing machines
Some washing machines have a sanitize or steam settings. Using these settings along with detergent, bleach and peroxide can kill germs. Drying laundry on the dryer’s hot cycle for 45 minutes also is effective against certain viruses and germs.
Dishwashers that feature a sanitize cycle must meet standards set by NSF International, a consumer protection group. Certified dishwashers must reach a final rinse temperature of 150 degrees and achieve a minimum 99.999 percent reduction of bacteria. If you have a sanitizing dishwasher, you can disinfect pet bowls, scrub pads, some kids’ toys and more. Always make sure your dishes and other items are dishwashing safe.
Stay Safe. Be kind. Help Each Other.
3. Air Purifiers
Household air purifiers can help, but shouldn’t replace thorough cleaning and sanitizing. Some purifiers use ultraviolet light, which has been shown to kill germs, but effectiveness can vary by model. While some purifiers and air filters advertise the ability to capture viruses, bacteria and common allergens, they don’t necessarily kill germs and viruses.
4. Steam Cleaners
A steam cleaner is a good solution for cleaning and disinfecting things you can’t wash in the washer. Steam can kill 99.9 percent of dust mites, germs and bacteria including such dangerous germs as salmonella, staph bacteria and E. coli. Steam cleaners also remove dirt and stains from carpet, upholstery, drapes and other fabrics.
