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

Just be careful not to spray it on leather or wood surfaces to avoid discoloration!

3. Clorox Disinfecting Wipes - Fresh Scent

For easy clean-ups, a tub of Clorox Disinfecting Wipes is a great must-have for your child’s room, your kitchen, and even your car.

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!

Right after coming home from work or doing errands, it’s always best to soak the clothes you wore in soapy water or bleach.
