Do Watkins All–Purpose Cleaners disinfect?
There are many theories about disinfectants.Some experts say that they are creating "Super Germs" with their constant disinfecting (meaning that the germs build a resistance to the chemicals and come back even stronger/bigger). Others argue that the chemicals they are using to kill the germs are just as harmful as the germs themselves.86% of people who use disinfecting cleaners don’t let the disinfecting formula penetrate the surface. They spray and immediately wipe and as a result they don’t get the disinfecting properties of the cleaner at all. They’ve spent a great deal of time researching this issue and they’ve found that the best way to keep germs at bay is with regular soap and water. Regular cleaning and maintenance are the best ways to disinfect your home.
