Precautions for the use of disinfectant products  

1, pay attention to ventilation.  When using alcohol indoors, it is necessary to ensure good ventilation. After using towels and other cloth cleaning tools, a lot of water should be used to clean them and store them airtight, or put them in ventilated places to dry.  

2, correct use.  Before use, completely remove flammable and combustible materials around the place of use. Do not approach heat source and avoid open flame when using.  Before disinfecting the surface of the electrical appliance, the power should be turned off first, and then the electrical appliance should be cooled.  If you wipe the kitchen hearth with alcohol, close the fire first so as not to volatilize alcohol and cause deflagration.  The lid of the container must be closed immediately after each use of alcohol. It is strictly forbidden to leave the container open.  

3. Appropriate storage.  Alcohol is a flammable and volatile liquid. When residents use alcohol to disinfect at home, it is recommended to buy medical alcohol in small packaging for civilian use. The packaging of a single bottle should not exceed 500 ml.  

4. Safe storage.  Alcohol containers should be stored in glass or special plastic packaging, and must have a reliable seal, do not use the container without a lid.  When the remaining alcohol is stored, special attention should be paid to cover tightly to avoid volatilization. It should be stored in a cool place away from the light. It should not be placed in the heat source environment such as the balcony, stove, heating system and so on.
