The EPA has identified two Lysol products that effectively kill COVID-19 on hard non-porous surfaces.
Lysol Disinfectant Spray and Lysol Disinfectant Max Cover Mist meet the criteria to kill the SARS-CoV-2 virus within two minutes of contact.
“In the face of the pandemic, Lysol continues to work with a wide range of scientific and health experts to educate the public on the importance of hygiene,” a Lysol representative said in a statement.
The confirmation of the effectiveness of the approved Lysol products comes a month after a CDC survey revealed that people were cleaning their homes more but didn’t know how to clean them properly. Those who did use high-risk cleaners to ward off viruses within their homes said they suffered health-related problems due to the cleaners.
