Before spraying or applying disinfectant to your identified areas, make sure you clean them first. So to clean the surfaces, you can use soap or detergent water. Dip the towel in the mixture and clean doorknobs, handles, cupboards, etc. But make sure that you use disposable gloves while cleaning the areas or if you don’t have them remember to wash your hands with soap afterward.
After you finished cleaning the areas, it’s time to disinfect them. For this purpose, you can use a disinfectant that is being sold in the market, or you can use the followings

- Disinfectant spray (Purell, Clorox, Lysol, all make sprays that will work)
- Isopropyl alcohol
