Curious, how practical is to use common household disinfectants on fresh veggies, fruits?

 

To analyze the antiviral activity of household products, a protocol was developed to measure the ability of specific antiseptic and disinfectant products to inactivate MHV, a potential surrogate for SARS-CoV. This protocol was used to measure the antiviral activity by determining the log reductions using the Reed and Muench TCID50 end point method. It was demonstrated that household disinfectant and antiseptic products, containing either 0.05% of triclosan, 0.12% of PCMX, 0.21% of sodium hypochlorite, 0.23% of pine oil, or 0.10% of a quaternary compound with 79% of ethanol, were all equally effective at inactivating MHV.
