Throughout this pandemic we have, and in the months to come - will be, hearing a lot of speculation as to what might rid us of COVID-19. While most individuals are leaving the science up to the scientists for discovering possible cures, there has been a surge of misinformation being spread across social media and other online platforms, and in rare instances these myths have proven very harmful if not fatal.
One of these myths that has sparked an outcry from medical researchers and incurred the fury of the medical industry over the past week has been whether or not disinfectants and/or cleaners are appropriate for the internal treatment of COVID-19.
SurfaceScience Inc., the makers of multiple surface coatings and cleaners, including the OneTab brand of household cleaning tablets, would like to assert the dangers associated with the improper use of disinfectants or cleaners. Under no circumstances should any household cleaner or disinfectant be consumed nor injected. These substances are not a cure for COVID-19 and should never be used internally.
Household cleaners and disinfectants are intended for the cleaning or disinfecting of hard and/or soft surfaces as stated on each product label. The CDC and the EPA both state that cleaners and disinfectants, should be treated within your home as a chemical substance which includes keeping the product out of reach of children and to read all manufacturer guidelines including instructions, warnings, and first aid precautions located on the label prior to use.
