Difference Between Cleaning & Disinfecting

What's the difference between cleaning & disinfecting? Are they even different?

Yes, they are!


  • Removes dirt and impurities from surfaces.
  • Usually using water, soap, or detergent and scrubbing.


  • Kills germs.
  • Requires a special substance to be applied and left on the surface for a certain amount of time to ensure germ elimination.
  • To disinfect effectively and keep germs away for longer, you should actually spray & leave.  You shouldn't have to rinse it away but only IF you're using a non-toxic disinfectant. 

Most disinfectants have no effect if dirt, soil, dust, or food debris are present. So, the best way to keep your home surfaces clean & germ free, you'll usually need to clean first before applying disinfectant. 

This process can be time-consuming.

However, it doesn't have to be time-consuming if you clean and disinfect at the same time with Resparkle's Organic Disinfectant Cleaning Kit.
