Cleaning removes germs, dirt, and impurities from surfaces or objects. Cleaning works by using soap (or detergent) and water to physically remove germs from surfaces.
Sanitize lowers the number of germs. Sanitizing is meant to reduce, not kill, the occurrence and growth of bacteria, viruses and fungi.
Disinfect kills germs on surfaces or objects. According to the WHO (World Health Organization), if you think a surface may be infected with COVID-19, clean it with a disinfectant to kill the virus in order to protect yourself and others.
