Tip of the Week: The Perfect Solution
Effective sanitation is key to infectious disease control in a shelter. Many shelters use bleach as a disinfectant after cleaning, because it is inexpensive and effective against common shelter disease agents like parvovirus and panleukopenia. However, like this sign reminds us, in order to be effective, bleach needs to be diluted properly and made fresh daily. It’s a great idea to discard daily leftovers on outdoor gravel areas.
