It is important to note that bleach is a hazardous substance so it must be used with caution.
To minimise the risks posed by using bleach, Dr Ackerley recommending the following:
- Always check the manufacturer’s label and never use on surfaces other than those directed on the bottle
- When handling bleach, always wear household gloves
- Do not mix bleach with other cleaning products
- All bleach products or solutions should be kept out of reach of children
How long can coronavirus stay on surfaces?
Research is ongoing but recent studies have shown that the COVID-19 virus may remain on surfaces or objects for up to 72 hours, according to Harvard Health.
“This means viruses on the surface of groceries will become inactivated over time after groceries are put away,” says the health site.
