This is EPA tested and approved. Use it on all hard surfaces throughout your home – door knobs, remote controls, phones, countertops, faucets, light switches, garbage cans, throughout the bathroom, and kitchen. Disinfectants kill microorganisms on contact, but as soon as they dry and someone touches that surface, cross-contamination happens because it stops working.
