The respondents were from across the country, with 38% from the South, 24% from the West, 21% from the Midwest, and 18% from the Northeast, according to the CDC's report. Fifty-two percent of respondents were female. When broken down by race, 63% of respondents were non-Hispanic white, 16% were Hispanic (any race), 12% were non-Hispanic black, and 8% were multiracial or of other race/ethnicity.
The CDC recommends using disinfectants as intended, for cleaning and disinfecting surfaces. It also says bleach should be used in a well-ventilated area. People should also take care to use protective equipment such as gloves when using cleaners. Bleach should never be mixed with vinegar or ammonia, and only room-temperature water should be used to dilute bleach. Doing so can cause “severe lung tissue damage.”
