Q. What is the best way to disinfect books?


Like any other surface, you can wipe most book covers and media cases with disinfectant wipes.

Unfortunately, pages cannot be disinfected at home without harming them. Those concerned about contact with books and other materials are encouraged to bag items for several days, rather than attempt to disinfect them in ways that may damage the items.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), non-porous items such as books and plastic covers are considered safe for handling after a 72-hour quarantine.
