Cleaning and Disinfection Guidelines of Keilhauer Products

In an effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19, please follow cleaning and disinfecting guidelines from local health authorities, the CDC and any instructions on cleaning and disinfecting provided on product labels. Keilhauer has, in partnership with our suppliers, prepared the following cleaning and disinfecting recommendations for our products.

In general, health authorities recommend using soap and water to help fight the spread of Coronavirus. While you may want to clean and disinfect with bleach "it is like using a bludgeon to swat a fly," says Jane Greatorex, a virologist at Cambridge University. "It can also corrode metal and lead to other respiratory health problems if inhaled too much over time". Lisa Casanova, an environmental health scientist at Georgia State University and other experts instead recommend using milder soaps, like dish soap, to sanitize surfaces indoors and outdoors.
