Spray Hydrogen Peroxide first and leave it for 5-10 minutes before wiping it and spray vinegar after. Hydrogen Peroxide kills germs.

“Ito naman ay medyo mas matapang ito, so meron tayong Hydrogen Peroxide. Isspray mo ito sa surface. Pero hindi pwedeng isabay kasi gagamitan mo din ito ng vinegar so dapat magkahiwalay. Hindi ito pwedeng pagsamahin kasi nagrereact silang dalawa baka mahilo ka sa amoy” Datukan said.
“As much as possible isolate the area for 5-10 minutes,” he added.
