PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) – We all think we know how to clean our home, but because of the spread of coronavirus you may want to pay closer attention.

For example, when using a box of Lysol wipes, the label says to truly disinfect a surface, you need to leave the surface wet for 4 minutes and let the surface air dry.

In addition to disinfecting your counter-tops, the CDC says you should also wipe down doorknobs, light switches, remotes, and other objects that are touched often and part of high trafficked areas.

Have you ever thought of items in your bathrooms? A health expert warns not to forget your hand towels and other laundry as well.
