#3 : Spraying Disinfectant and Wiping It up Immediately
Raise your hand if you’re guilty of this: do you often spray disinfectant over an area and then just wipe it off? Then you’re not doing your home any favors. In most cases, you have to leave the disinfectant to sit for around 3 to 10 minutes in order for it to work its magic.
What’s more, you have to clear surfaces of debris and dust beforehand, so it’s a good idea to use a microfiber tower prior to spraying your household disinfectant. It’s a two-part step that a lot of people don’t think about when cleaning up their homes.
Before you do any of this, though, make sure to read the label of the products you’re using. That way you’ll know how much time you need to wait. Plus, it’ll help you save up a particular time frame for all your cleaning.
