Cleaning products have been in short supply, especially ones approved to kill coronavirus.  The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has just added Pine-Sol as an approved COVID19 killer.  In Particular, Pine-Sol Original Multi-Surface Cleaner was proven in laboratory testing to successfully kill the pathogen SARS-CoV-2 on hard, non-porous surfaces. It joins a list of several hundred cleaning agents, including Clorox and Lysol products that can effectively neutralize the virus on household surfaces. The good news is that Pine-Sol is currently available from a wide variety of retailers. To effectively disinfect with Pine-Sol, apply the product undiluted to the surface using a clean sponge or cloth. Wet the area thoroughly, then let it sit for at least 10 minutes before rinsing clean. If the surface is particularly grimy, remove any dirt or residue first before disinfecting.
