Cleaning and Disinfecting Grocery Carts and Baskets

All grocery carts and baskets must be cleaned and disinfected at least once daily. The carts and baskets should be cleaned with a soap and water solution or a pressure sprayer.  Then, they must be disinfected.  There are numerous products that are effective disinfectants against the coronavirus.  See if your disinfectants are on the EPA list. 

If you use EcoLab products, the Peroxide Multi Surface Cleaner and Disinfectant and Mikro-Quat are on the EPA list of disinfectants against the coronavirus. In addition, many of the Clorox products are on the approved list as well.

Remember, the proper concentration and contact time for your disinfectant is required to kill the coronavirus.    (Make sure to refer to the manufacturer’s directions for use).

*There can be chemical interactions when chemicals are mixed that are deadly so make sure to review the Safety Data Sheets.
