Procter & Gamble’s (P&G) Microban 24 Multi-Purpose Cleaner is the first consumer product registered by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to provide 24 hours of residual antibacterial and antiviral defense against 99.9% of bacteria and viruses (EPA Reg No. 4091-21-3573).

A third-party lab has verified the 24-hour effect, and the EPA conducted a data review. P&G notes this protection also lasts through multiple touches. 

Prior to this new development, Microban 24 Multi-Purpose Cleaner was registered by the EPA to kill viruses, in just 60 seconds and was included on EPA List N.  

This means the EPA expects it “to kill all strains and variants of the coronavirus Sars-CoV-2 (COVID-19) when used according to the label directions.”
