Yes, dear - I did, double gloves, mask and eye protection. And prayed ...that there were no holes in the gloves .....ever part of me stayed dry. For me, as long as I have protection I am OK, gee I hope that when I have a kid..changing his/her diaper will not require this kind of protection..lmao.

We use a product called OdoBan they carry it at Sams club it is a deodorizer, sanitizer, disinfectant it kills mildew and keeps it from growing back iit kills 99.99% germs..we use it to mop floors clean countertops and bathrooms...it not only smells clean...it really cleans....
It is my understanding that most products that claim a kill ratio have only been tested on pre-sterillized surfaces (ie stainless steel). There is some argument as to the loss of efficiency when these same products are used on various porous surfaces.
In our related industries there are thousands of products coming out every day, and from everything that I have been reading NOTHING substitutes for elbow grease and thorough cleaning. Sometimes customers want chemcials and will not be deterred, but the reality may be that many marketed chemicals are unreliable.
We just disinfected an entire home today due to the customer's baby being hospitalized for viral pneumonia. The problem is that my staff is given a set amount of time to spend in the home, and our disinfectant requires ten minutes of dwell time in order to work its magic. This put the team way behind schedule. Our disinfectant does not state that it kills viruses, only bacteria such as staph. But the customer asked us to go ahead and use what we had since the baby is coming home from the hospital tomorrow. So we did. But it got me to thinking about the 10 minute mandatory dwell time and how we shouldn't say that we disinfect kitchens and bathrooms if we are not going to follow the manufacturer's directions exactly as written. Do the rest of you actually wait the ten minutes or whatever or do you spray and go in order to stay on schedule?
