Homemade Cleaning Solution
The following homemade disinfecting spray has a pH level around 6.8 to 7.0 (isopropyl alcohol pH = 7.4; hydrogen peroxide pH = 4.5) and can be used to create a cleaning solution.
- Fill a 16 oz glass spray bottle most of the way full with 70%+ isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol
Found in the pharmaceutical section of grocery stores or drug stores. Look for bottles labeled isopropyl alcohol, also called rubbing alcohol.
- Add 1/2 teaspoon hydrogen peroxide
A study published in the Journal of Hospital Infection suggested that viruses could be “efficiently inactivated” with disinfectants that contain alcohol and 0.5% hydrogen peroxide
- Add one of the following essential oils
- 30 drops tea tree essential oil
- 15 drops lemon essential oil
- 15 drops lavender essential oil
- 15 drops eucalyptus essential oil
Essential oils have natural disinfecting properties, eliminate stinky odors, fight mold and mildew, and are antimicrobial. 4. Put on spray top and shake to mix well
When using a spray cleaner, be sure to spray the disinfectant cleaner onto a soft, lint- free cloth first, then wipe the frame and plastic surfaces with the dampened cloth. Do not use the spray directly onto the equipment.
Recommended Cleaning Procedure
Use recommended disinfectant cleaning wipes or a lint-free cloth dampened with a recommended non-acidic, non- corrosive cleaner. If using a spray cleaner, be sure to spray the disinfectant cleaner onto a soft, lint-free cloth first, then wipe the frame and plastic surfaces with the dampened cloth. Do not use the spray directly onto the equipment.
On LCD consoles or PVS equipment, clean the screen using only a diluted solution of one part 91% isopropyl alcohol to one part water on a dampened, lint-free cloth. Keep excess cleaning fluids away from electronic components to prevent electrical shock or damage, and dry completely. Dry completely.
IMPORTANT. DO NOT use bleach, acidic cleaners or corrosive chemicals. Doing so will weaken the powder coat on frames, discolor plastic covers, and damage consoles or screens. Avoid the use of high acidic cleaners (pH of 4.0 or less) or corrosive chemicals (pH of 11.5 or higher).
Please refer to the CDC website for additional cleaning recommendations in accordance for protection against coronavirus.
