Products Used

- Cleaning means to remove dirt, dust, debris, and sticky substances by washing, wiping, scrubbing, or mopping hard surfaces with soap or detergent and water. Routine cleaning of toys, floors, manipulatives, play equipment, counters, and shelves is recommended for child care settings. Oxivir cleaner is used for this purpose.

 

- Sanitizing means to kill germs at a level that reduces the risk of becoming ill from contact with germs on the surface. Sanitizing is used on food contact surfaces (dishes, utensils, cutting boards, high chair trays, tables), toys that students may place in their mouths and mixed use tables. Sani-Q sanitizer is used for this purpose.

 

- Disinfection means to destroy almost all germs that could make a person sick. Disinfecting is for toileting areas and high-touch areas that collect lots of germs (bathroom faucets and counters, diaper changing tables, toilets, sinks used in toileting routines, drinking fountains, doorknobs). Terminator disinfectant is used for this purpose.
