The Differences between Cleaning, Sanitizing, and Disinfecting

From the onset of the COVID-19 crisis FSIoffice has seen overwhelming demand for cleaning, sanitizing and disinfectant products. Through good public health education customers knew right from the start of the outbreak that these groups of products were needed to clean surfaces and help reduce the spread of infection. Because of this unprecedented demand we have had to source some of these products from non-traditional suppliers and use brands that might not be as familiar to you.

Because of the brands we have sourced to keep up with demand are not as well-known as Clorox or the other major consumer brands we thought it would be a good idea to help you understand the difference between the three major categories of germ reduction and which of the three is the only one to protect you from the spread of COVID-19. We have put together a quick visual guide explaining the difference between cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting products so you can make informed decisions when purchasing cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting products.

Just remember, don’t use disinfecting wipes on your hands but wash them with soap and water to prevent skin damage!
