To disinfect the vinyl upholstery on your Chiropractic drop board /table, important for destroying the Covid-19 virus, here are some options:
- Bleach: Dilute 4 tsp bleach in 1 quart of water in spray bottle. Spray on vinyl and leave for several minutes before rinsing with water.
- Hydrogen Peroxide (3%): Available in spray bottle. Use undiluted and leave on for 5-6 minutes before rinsing with water.
- Alcohol (70% min): Use undiluted. Leave on for several minutes before rinsing with water.
After any of these steps, a thorough, clear water rinse will minimize any premature deterioration of the vinyl from extended exposure to chemicals.
Although not a disinfecting agent, normal day to day soil on the vinyl upholstery can be removed with dish soap and warm water (diluted 1:10), using a soft cloth. If more cleaning is necessary, use a soft bristle brush with the same 10% solution. Follow any cleaning with a thorough clean water rinse. Rinsing is important to clear all chemicals from the vinyl, which could otherwise cause premature deterioration. Avoid harsh detergents and powdered abrasives. Areas coming in contact with hair, body oils or perspiration should be washed frequently. Remove stains immediately to prevent the possibility of them becoming permanent.
