EPA Approves Additional Cleaning Product That Will Kill Coronavirus on Surfaces

As disinfectant wipes and bottles of hand sanitizers continue to fly off store shelves amid the coronavirus pandemic, the U.S. government issued a stamp of approval for an additional household cleaning product.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) gave Pine-Sol Original Multi-Surface Cleaner the approval “for kill claims against SARS-Cov-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, on hard non-porous surfaces,” according to a press release.

If you use Pine-Sol to prevent the spread of COVID-19, apply the Pine-Sol multi-surface cleaner with a clean sponge or cloth on hard, nonporous surfaces. Once the surface is wet, let it stand for 10 minutes and then rinse.

The EPA released a list back in March of household products that kill the coronavirus. They include Clorox, Lysol and Purell.
