Cleaning, Sanitizing, and Disinfecting in Child Care
- You can disinfect with a bleach and water solution. A solution of regular household bleach and water is an inexpensive and easy way to disinfect surfaces and objects in child care programs.

- You can use your washing machine.
One may also ask, what is the difference between disinfecting and sanitizing? Sanitizing is meant to reduce, not kill, the occurrence and growth of bacteria, viruses and fungi. Disinfecting a surface will “kill” the microscopic organisms as claimed on the label of a particular product. The minimum level of effectiveness in a modern-day disinfectant is 100 percent kill of 6 log10 of an organism.
