Since the world came under attack from the COVID-19 pandemic, the use of disinfectants increased exponentially across the globe. According to the research conducted by the CDC, one considerable problem is people’s inadequate understanding of the best cleaning solutions (Christensen, 2020). The findings showed that 23percent knew that not only because there is no cure or vaccine developed for the virus yet, but it’s because prevention has always been the best cure.

Obviously, the use of disinfectants increased because they are the only products capable of destroying SARS-COV-2 and other pathogens. However, it’s important to note that, not all disinfectants can be effective against coronavirus.

And it is also convenient because it can be used to disinfect complicated equipment like electronic devices. It was even cleared to be safe for use on cell phone screens, which initially was an issue because most chemicals can cause damage when applied to the same.
