How to effectively disinfect your home amidst the coronavirus outbreak
An analysis published on March 17 in The New England Journal of Medicine
found that the virus can remain viable in the air for up to 3 hours, on copper for up to 4 hours, on cardboard up to 24 hours, and on plastic and stainless steel for up to 72 hours. Thankfully, Coronavirus is an enveloped cell (which means it’s wrapped in a lipid (fatty) outer membrane) and can be killed by Sodium Hypochlorite (bleach) as well as usually being more susceptible to biocides and surfactants.
Cleanipedia has answered further questions on how to protect your home from viruses
and maintain hygiene.
Simple rules to follow:
Remove dirt first: It’s important to remove any dirt and grime from your surfaces first, as if the surface is not visibly clean before you disinfect it, germs can hide in the dirt and grime therefore reducing the disinfectants efficacy. Then disinfect: Germ-kill is the next step. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC) diluted Sodium Hypochlorite (bleach) at 0.5%, and solutions containing at least 70% alcohol, effectively kill Coronavirus.
- You can create a Sodium Hypochlorite (bleach) at 0.5% solution at home by diluting bleach with water to make an effective hygienic cleaner – when using Domestos Bleach to disinfect surfaces, prepare 1-part Domestos Bleach to 9-parts water.
- When preparing and using the solution, it should be handled carefully with gloves and mustn’t be applied porous surfaces to avoid damage (such as wood, enamel, or scratched surfaces). For new or unusual surfaces, or if in any doubt, test in an inconspicuous area first and always follow on-pack instructions for use and precautions.
Alternatively, you can use Domestos’ Multipurpose Bleach Spray as a ready to use and practical disinfection solution for frequently touched surfaces.

Domestos supports UNICEF to tackle unsafe sanitation and improve hygiene. Over the last 10 years, we have helped 28 million people get access to safe toilets, and together we will be unstoppable in reaching Domestos’ new goal – helping 100 million people access improved standards of sanitation and hygiene.
Mother of two, Kalpana, explains the benefits of the partnership perfectly: “Now that everyone uses the toilet, people don’t get sick, and our village is cleaner.”
There’s still so much more to do.
Half the world’s population are at risk of sickness and disease because they don’t have access to safe sanitation¹. While nearly one in three schools² still don’t have a useable toilet.
The Domestos and UNICEF partnership means more families, schools and communities can gain access to safer sanitation and stay healthier.
Transforming the lives of school children.
The partnership enables schools to get access to clean, safe toilets and educates pupils to transition from open defecation to using a toilet – both at school and at home. Pankaj, a headteacher, has seen the impact first-hand: ‘the children’s attendance has increased and our teachers see a positive difference with improved academic performance.’
