The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP) recommends using a diluted bleach solution for virus disinfection. To make the perfect solution to kill the virus, mix half a cup of bleach with one gallon of water. 
Make sure to wear gloves while using the solution to disinfect. Do not mix the bleach with ammonia or any other chemical. Once mixed, do not keep the solution for more than a day as the bleach then loses its potency and even degrades the container in which it's stored.

?Isopropyl alcohol
For cleaning the hard surfaces, alcohol solutions with at least 70 percent of alcohol should be used. Clean the surface with detergent and water and then apply the alcohol solution on the surface without diluting the solution.
Let the solution sit on the surface for 30 minutes and then wipe off. Alcohol is safe to be used on almost all surfaces, though it can discolor some plastic surfaces.

Hydrogen peroxide
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, 3 percent hydrogen peroxide is effective in killing the rhinovirus. For those who do not know, rhinovirus is more difficult to kill than coronavirus, so hydrogen peroxide can break down coronavirus even more easily. 

You can pour the hydrogen peroxide in a spray bottle and spray it on the surfaces to be cleaned. Let the solution stay on the surface for one minute and then wipe it off with a cloth. Hydrogen peroxide works like bleach, so it can also be used on clothes and doesn't need to be wiped off or washed as it decomposes into oxygen and water.

Soap and water
We have read and heard it a million times now that washing hands with soap and water should be our first choice. Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds with warm water to destroy the virus. You can use any soap.
