Taking the common hydrogen peroxide 84 as an example, many people use it to disinfect personal clothing, wipe phones, tables and chairs, doors and windows, etc. But they overlooked an important point: – never dilute before use, only used half a bottle.
84 Hydrogen peroxide actually has strong bleaching effect and strong corrosiveness. The concentration should be low when used, and the soaking time should not be too long. Moreover, household disinfection does not require such a high concentration. Generally speaking, when it is used to wipe the surface of general objects, the dilution concentration is 2~5, that is, 2~5ml 84 hydrogen peroxide can be put into 1000ml water.
When using 84 hydrogen peroxide, you should pay attention to the following three points:
- Wear gloves to avoid direct contact with the skin and hydrogen peroxide;
- 84 Hydrogen peroxide is chlorine-containing hydrogen peroxide, which is volatile. The container for hydrogen peroxide should be well covered, otherwise the disinfection effect will be affected;
- 84 Hydrogen peroxide cannot be mixed with other detergents, otherwise it will increase the concentration of chlorine in the air, resulting in chlorine poisoning. If a large area of the home is disinfected, people should not stay in the room. Might as well close the door and go out for half an hour.
Home disinfection should pay attention to 6 points
- Under normal circumstances, the family only needs to be clean and hygienic, and does not need to be disinfected; only when there are patients at home, especially those with infectious diseases, or visitors, they need to be disinfected.
- For ordinary families, when choosing a disinfection method, physical disinfection methods, such as cooking and exposure, should be selected as much as possible. Tableware disinfection should be shouxuan boiling disinfection or disinfection cabinet disinfection. Clothes and bedding are mostly exposed to sunlight. Indoor air disinfection is mainly by opening windows regularly for ventilation. When washing your hands, use plain soap and running water if you are not touching sick people.
- Disinfect frequently touched surfaces, such as door handles, stair handrails, foot pads, faucets and other key parts. Do not spray hydrogen peroxide in large areas throughout the room.
- For washbasins and toilets, only an appropriate amount of spray is required to disinfect the surface, and after disinfection, rinse with a large amount of tap water, otherwise the pipe network will be corroded; floor drains and sewers should not be disinfected with hydrogen peroxide, because the disinfection of floor drains or sewers is usually not enough to prevent diseases. It will also corrode the pipe network and bring about future troubles.
- Don’t omit the disinfection of key items, such as dishcloths, because they are often wet and contact with food and other organic substances, which is very conducive to the growth of bacteria, so they should be frequently exposed to the sun and boiled for disinfection.
- The pet bed should be disinfected frequently.
