Surface Disinfectant Spray – Guide To Common Uses


Being equipped with the right sanitizing products is vital to maintaining hygiene at home and outside. Disinfecting regularly frequented spaces with alcohol-based disinfectants helps to kill germs that spread through air or contact with skin.

Disinfection of homes and offices several times a day is essential to prevent the spread of illnesses like COVID19.  Using liquid disinfectants can kill germs efficiently. However, cleaning with surface disinfectant liquids can be quite time-consuming, especially if required to be done multiple times.

Multi-surface disinfectant sprays are extremely useful for quick and effective disinfection. They are easy-to-use, compact, and safe on most working surfaces. WHO recommended disinfection spray formulation includes ethyl alcohol, benzalkonium chloride, isopropyl alcohol, and other similar chemicals. The best disinfectant sprays are those that contain at least 60% alcohol (by volume) marked at the back of the container.

Where to use disinfectant spray?

Ideally, disinfectant sprays can be used to kill germs after industrial-grade cleaning in public spaces. These are also very useful for every-day cleaning at home.

Electronic items

The ever-increasing screen time in our daily lives exposes us to a lot of germs if the electronics are not adequately cleaned. Mobile phones, laptops, tablets, etc. carry a lot of germs, especially when carried outside of the home. These can spread diseases through direct contact with the skin.

Using surface disinfectant liquids on electronics can be unsafe due to the nature of the material. Disinfectant sprays are great for use on TV remotes, cell phones, touch-screens, etc. for quick germ-killing. It can be used safely multiple times a day to ensure protection from deadly viruses and bacteria.

Packages and deliveries

Disinfectant sprays are extremely useful on paper and plastic, like those on postal packages, food delivery parcels, and groceries.

It is always safe to disinfect all mails and store-bought packages before use since these pass through multiple junctures before reaching your home or office. Washing with soap and water or using liquid cleaners can damage the surface. Sanitizing with multi-surface disinfectant sprays can easily kill viruses and bacteria on the surface and make them safe for use.


Using your car or two-wheeler to go to work or to run errands every day results in a lot of germs being carried onto your vehicle. A quick round of cleaning every day helps to keep it germ-free.

Disinfectant sprays are great for using on steering wheels, seats, dashboards, handlebars, and other contact surfaces. A quick spray on the surface before use makes it safe to touch.

Disinfecting your car is especially important if you have kids, the elderly, or any other family member with compromised immunity at home.

Working surface

Common work areas tend to be high-touch surfaces that can be a source of diseases. Supermarket counters, shopping carts, shelves, elevator buttons, staircase handles, doorknobs, light switches, etc. act as the focus of a variety of microbes. Furniture, fabric, and all other kinds of hard and soft surfaces can also be effectively sanitized using disinfectant sprays.

Surfaces like these should be disinfected very frequently, following directions of the local health authorities. Disinfectant sprays are useful on such surfaces due to quick effectiveness. This adds to increasing relevant throughputs by quickly making high contact surfaces safe for each new user.
