I am doing a science fair project. I want to test the effect of household products on common kitchen germs. Does 409 , Lysol,etc. really kill germs. I have blood agar in petri dishes. I want to swab some germs from off the counter and then clean the area with a product and swab the area again to see if there is a difference in the amount of bacterial growth. Will this work? Or should I Culture the bacteria and after the growth occurs then add the products to the petri dish to see if the growth dies? I've had a hard time finding a book to help me. Thank you for your help!
