HI all,

I was previously using clorox bleach to kill my surfaces of scabbies. Well i bought the clorox disinfecting wipes to wipe down my matress, pillow cover, keyboard, etc. But I noticed it says it is bleach free - but it kills the cold and flu virus.

Can I use this to clean my surfaces, or will it be ineffective?

Thanks for all the help.

They are really hard to kill. I was using listerine and found out this was ineffective. I would go w/ something stronger. If you don't want to use real bleach, get some 91% rubbing alcohol and put it into a spray bottle. It's cheap and dries fast. I haven't ruined anything with it yet. I use it on my keyboard, car, chairs, bathroom floors, shower, toilet seat, plastic shoes, etc. Juts spritz it on and let it dry.

Windex. borax mixed with water is cheapest. I mostly use cedarcides best yet.

Good to know. I don't know if the alcohol is bothering my lungs- they're already so trashed from the DE that I have a chronic cough. My husband bitches about how I keep my car. If I ruined it with alcohol he'd really have something to complain about. Is Windex OK in the car????? I can't afford cedarcide. I have a big house, large family and lots of pets, so I am already running broke dealing with this.
