No one likes getting a virus and for some people, the implications of certain viruses are worse than others including the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Aside from good hand washing you also want to clean and disinfect the surfaces in your home well. Aside from bleach and hydrogen peroxide, I checked to check if Method Antibac also kills the Coronavirus, because that’s what I have at home.
I went to the source to see what statements Method Home had put out so far. Based on their response on Twitter as of March 9th, they remind us that while their antibac products kill 99.9% of common germs, the Coronavirus is new and not a common virus. In short on Twitter, they said they haven’t tested their products against it yet.
What common germs and viruses and germs does Method Antibac kill?
So fair enough. With a new virus, they haven’t tested it yet in order to claim for sure if the product does or does not kill that particular one. According to Method, their Antibac products kill 99.9% of household germs—including influenza A flu virus, staphylococcus aureus, rhinovirus, and salmonella enterica.
Method currently offer an Antibac All Purpose Cleaner, an Antibac Bathroom cleaner, and one for the toilet bowls.
The Antibac All Purpose Cleaner is my favorite go-to for my kitchen counters after preparing with raw chicken. And I like their bathroom cleaners to cut through the grime.
How does Method Antibac work?
Method Antibac is formulated using citric acid to break down germs. They’ve tested their products against other germs and viruses including the common ones. The coronavirus is new and hasn’t been tested yet to confirm if it successfully kills this particular virus.
How do you use Method Antibac to disinfect surfaces?
This is important. Disinfecting surfaces is not a speed cleaning activity. The recommendation from Method is to first do a quick clean to remove the mess. Then spray the surface down and let stand for 10 minutes allow the cleaner to do its work disinfecting.
Wrapping up. Using Method Antibac for Disinfecting
Don’t forget in these follow good hygiene, cleaning, and social distancing practices during any uptick in viruses. Method Antibac can help you clean your home and disinfect it. We’ll need to keep an eye out for an update from Method on any test results they do for their Antibac products against the Coronavirus.
