Well, we tried our best right?

When we started going into lockdown, people panicked. It's no surprise we bought all the cleaning supplies and tried our best to keep our homes clean.

Apparently one third of Americans have been using cleaning products wrong these past few months. According to TAL -

In May, the CDC polled 502 adults in the United States about their cleaning habits during the pandemic. Sixty percent of respondents said they were cleaning their homes more frequently than they had in previous months, which is most certainly a good thing. However, according to the survey’s results, more people were also calling poison control centers and reporting adverse health effects due to cleaners over the same period.

What does that mean? Basically we were doing things on top of basic cleaning like washing food products with bleach, applying household cleaning or disinfectant products to bare skin, and intentionally inhaling or ingesting these products.
One of the big issues was bleach and the ratio it takes to make a safe cleaning solution. Here's how to make that -

To disinfect, the government agency recommends making a diluted bleach solution. To do so, first follow all manufacturer instructions. Then, prepare a bleach solution using 1/3rd cup of bleach per gallon of room temperature water or 4 teaspoons bleach per quart of room temperature water. The solution will then be effective for disinfection up to 24 hours, according to the CDC.

Stay safe!
