If you don’t have any wipes, sprays, or cleaning liquid to help you clean, You can temporarily start washing with soapy water until you can order some items from our E-Commerce Store. Generally speaking a few drops of dish soap in eight -10 ounces of water should be temporarily sufficient as an alternative to more potent cleaning supplies. Although soap and water will not kill all germs, scrubbing with soapy water should be effective in helping deter the spread of CoronaVirus and other Germs TEMPORARILY. However, We highly recommend using more potent cleaning liquids.
