Buying Safer Disinfectants for Household Use

Clean Water Action/Clean Water Fund created the chart below which lists safer disinfectants that have been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency for use against coronavirus.

  • None of these disinfectants have bleach or quaternary ammonium compounds.
  • Products are primarily for household use.
  • To help you find products, we have listed large chain stores and websites where you can purchase.

The City of San Francisco lists many of these products–and more–on its list of safer disinfectant products that are effective against covid.  You can find this at:

The Toxics Use Reduction Institute at University of Massachusetts Lowell also has a list of safer disinfectants that are effective against covid.  Their list includes household products and disinfectants that you can use for business and institutional settings.

Things change over time, so please let us know if a store stops selling a product or if you have any corrections or updates by sending a note using the form at:
