High-touch surfaces
Clean and disinfect hard surfaces in your home (countertops, door handles, furniture, etc) by using an alcohol-based disinfectant. Also, disinfect your phone, laptop, TV remote controls and all other frequently used items .

Protective equipment 
Wear gloves when cleaning surfaces and if the detergents are aggressive, use a facemask. After cleaning, dispose of the protective gear securely in a trash bin.

Food  
Soak all raw, whole fruits and vegetables in a solution of 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide or white vinegar, wash them and let them dry. Wash your hands before and after.

Trash
Use leakproof and easily removable plastic bags. Close them tightly when full. Place them in a second bin bag. Empty all your bins daily. Wash your hands after the procedure.

Laundry
Wash your towels and linens with 60-90°C programme. Do not wash your clothes with a high-degree programme to avoid damaging the fabric. Simply use a disinfectant laundry detergent.
