In the modern world where talks of COVID -19 shows up in every media outlet, the marketing efforts of nearly every cleaning company on the planet has shelled out tons of cash to get consumers to purchase their name brand products to sanitize your home.

Researching which products to buy to protect your family can be overwhelming.

Luckily, consumers don’t have to pay top dollar for the high-end cleaners that will eliminate germs, viruses, and various bacteria strands from their granite countertops.

Since these times are tough for millions of families around the nation, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have clear directions on what you need to kill those harmful elements occupying your countertops.

According to the CDC, they recommend you wash your granite countertop surfaces with warm soap and clean water, removing all the dirt and debris.

Next, use household bleach to sanitize the surfaces your family often touches. It’s important to note not to mix bleach with ammonia or any other cleaners. Remember to wear gloves, and eye protection while cleaning and avoid breathing in product fumes. Open your windows to allow those fumes to escape.

Note: use regular unscented household bleach and always follow the instruction located on the bottle’s label.
