Newcastle disease is one of the most severe poultry viral diseases due to its ability to cause massive economic losses and about 100% mortality in chickens. Many disinfectants have been used on farms to prevent the disease. However, the use of existing commercial disinfectants nowadays is considered expensive. The purpose of this research is to evaluate the effectiveness of commercial detergents as disinfectants in inactivating the virus. Two commercial detergents containing Alkylbenzene sulfonates, which can dissolve the viral envelope lipid, were tested. More so, three concentrations of 1%, 1.5%, and 2% were used, with contact times of 5, 10, and 15 minutes, respectively. The commercial disinfectant Virkon was employed as a control. The results showed that commercial detergents had the same results compared to control by being able to inactivate the virus with a concentration of 1%, 1.5%, and 2% in 5, 10, and 15 minutes, respectively. This shows that simple and inexpensive household detergents can be used as an alternative for disinfection.
