From a Professional Chef: How to DIY Disinfectant


Mix a gallon of water with 5 to 6 tablespoons of bleach and a tiny dot of Palmolive. Keep it on the counter with a bar mop or face cloth. When you come in from a necessary trip out, use this solution on your keys, phone, anything you have touched, including door handles. Use it to wipe down all grocery items before putting them away. Remember to wipe down the counter where you left your grocery bags. You can also use the bleach solution to make your own sanitizer wipes with paper towels. Just store in a zip lock bag. 

Another good disinfecting tip: microwave mail or newspapers for 45 seconds.
