The fight against COVID-19 is currently being waged in laboratories and hospitals all around the world, and many of us may feel like we’re relying solely on doctors and scientists to provide a solution for this outbreak. However, there are simple and easy ways you can protect yourself and your family from the coronavirus and other sickness-causing microorganisms. You can make disinfecting your sofa, chairs, and tables a routine part of maintaining your furniture using common household products.

One of the best and most accessible disinfectant options for materials such as wood and wicker is bleach. The CDC has specifically named bleach as a material that can disinfect surfaces containing coronaviruses. Before scrubbing or spraying bleach onto your furniture, make sure your bleach is diluted with water. Some recommend a solution of 50% bleach and 50% water, while Clorox recommends adding ½ cup of their bleach products into one gallon of water. You can either use a cloth or sponge to wipe down your furniture with the bleach solution or you can fill a spray bottle with your solution and spray it onto your furniture’s surface.

Of course, bleach is not the only effective disinfectant material, and you can also use solutions made from diluted ammonia and other substances to disinfect your furniture. The EPA has a list of registered disinfectant products that are effective at fighting COVID-19. Be sure to take a look to understand your options.
