The Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic has driven all of us into isolation, seclusion, and uncertainty.  We’ve been told to wash our hands, wear masks, muzzle our coughs, and keep everyone at a distance.  

Since disinfectants and sanitizers have disappeared from our food market’s shelves, we went out and sourced a disinfectant to help get you what you need in these difficult times.  Go to and you can get a free quart of disinfectant with a two-quart purchase of ADVANAGE20X.

Meanwhile, here is how cleaners, sanitizers, and disinfectants deal with contamination, bacteria, and germs.   

Clean = Germs are Removed

Cleaning removes allergens and microorganisms from the environment. When a surface is clean, a cleaner has been used to remove dirt, germs, and impurities. Cleaning helps reduce the number of germs that can lead to infection; however, it does not necessarily kill any germs.

Sanitize = Germ count is lowered to a safe level 

Sanitization reduces contamination or bacteria to a safe level.  Sanitizing lowers the level of germs on a surface.  Disinfection kills everything on a particular surface. 

Disinfect = Germs are Killed

Disinfecting a surface means that chemicals are being used to kill germs. For a disinfectant to kill germs, its labeled dwell time should always be allowed. A dwell time, or contact time, is the amount of time the manufacturer has determined, through laboratory testing, that the disinfectant should remain wet on a surface.
