More than a year into the COVID-19 pandemic, you probably already have a list of reliable cleaning implements that should always be in your home. Whether you’re looking for new brands to try, or are just here to reaffirm your choices, this list of home disinfectants offers suggestions in case you want to update your stocks:

1. Downy Antibac+ Fabric Spray

P199 (originally P249/370ml), Shopee

If you use Downy Fabric Conditioner on your laundry, then you know how effective it is in removing that kulob smell from your clothes. You can enjoy the same thing inside your home—especially on hard-to-wash fabrics—with Downy Antibac+ Fabric Spray. Spritz it on your curtains, carpets, couches, and even your canvas shoes without having to worry about it leaving marks or spots. Just remember to let the cloth dry prior to touching or using!

2. Lysol Disinfectant Spray for Baby’s Room

P520/510g, Lazada


For those with allergies and are sensitive to scents, disinfectant sprays can cause sneezing fits. Lysol’s Disinfectant Spray for Baby’s Room is a gentler option. Not only does it have a soft fragrance, but it also has the same cleansing and disinfecting power as other variants. Just be careful not to spray it on leather or wood surfaces to avoid discoloration!

3. Clorox Disinfecting Wipes - Fresh Scent

4. Domex Anti-bacterial Floor Cleaner

P125/1000ml, Shopee

Follow the instructions in the bottle for the proper water-to-cleaner solution. Perfect for metal, linoleum, ceramic, vinyl, and marble surfaces, but if you’re unsure, try it in a hidden corner first!

5. Zonrox Colorsafe Blossom Fresh Bleach

P80/900ml, Lazada


Right after coming home from work or doing errands, it’s always best to soak the clothes you wore in soapy water or bleach. Zonrox Colorsafe Blossom Fresh Bleach doesn’t only smell nice, it also keeps your colored clothing safe from bleeding, while making sure that they’re cleansed of dirt, bacteria, germs, and viruses.

6.Messy Bessy Disinfectant Aroma Spray – Extra Strength
