Uses of Disinfectant in the Home

First Aid

Disinfectant is an important item for your home first aid kit. For incidences of home accidents, like bruises or cuts, applying a  disinfectant over the affected skin protects the surface of wounds from being infected by bacteria.

Cleaning Surfaces
From floors to tables, shelves and windows, public surfaces in the house are one of the first places for germs to settle. Regularly cleaning surfaces in your home with a disinfectant is a great way to keep bacteria from spreading.  


While it is important to wash your clothes and household fabrics (like napkins, curtains) from sweat, dust, and stains, you also need to sanitize them from bacteria. Soaking your clothes in water mixed with disinfectant liquid can help kill germs before you start washing.
