As a parent, you want to ensure that your family is safe and healthy, especially during these uncertain times. With the current environment of stronger virus and bacteria affecting our daily lives, it is more important than ever to take steps to protect your family. It can be VERY easy!
One way to do this is by using hypochlorous acid (HOCl) for cleaning. HOCl is a powerful disinfectant that has been proven effective in killing a wide range of harmful microorganisms, including viruses, bacteria, and fungi. It is also a safe and eco-friendly solution that can be used in a variety of settings, including your home.
Its also CHEAP and EASY to make! You just need a generator from Egret Lab Canada (prices range from about $100 - $500)
Here are some tips for using hypochlorous acid for cleaning:
1. Use it on high-touch surfaces: HOCl is effective in killing germs on a wide range of surfaces, including doorknobs, countertops, and light switches. Use it on any surface that is frequently touched by members of your family.
You can also use this on most soft surfaces - like the pillowcases and mattress! When junior gets a cold, like kids always do, use the patented Egret Lab EO Blaster to quickly spray down the sheets with NON TOXIC, NON ALLERGENIC hypochlorous acid (like our own bodies make!) to create a cleaner sleep space!
2. Dilute it properly: HOCl is highly effective when diluted to the proper concentration. Egret Lab Canada Generators create an end product that is considered Generally Regarded As Safe (GRAS) under 200 PPM. Our Pelican and Sparrow models actually have limits and will not generate beyond 200PPM! Our other generators are capable of creating even more powerful concentrated solutions if you want or need something more powerful...
3. Use it as a daily cleaner: HOCl is safe for daily use and can be used as a general cleaner in your home. Use it to clean floors, windows, and other surfaces to keep your home free of germs and bacteria. Especially handy for the KIDS TOYS and BACKPACKS! Egret lab has sold many units to schools and daycares to help quickly reduce the viral loads, germs and moulds that can grow on surfaces of difficult to clean items.
4. Store it properly: HOCl can lose its effectiveness over time, especially if it is exposed to sunlight or heat. Store it in a cool, dark place to ensure that it remains effective. On average FRESH solution (which is always the most powerful and easiest to create) will last two weeks. You can easily test the product using Chlorine and Ph strips to verify efficacy. Remember that it only takes a couple cents worth of salt, vinegar, water to create a fresh new batch!
Using hypochlorous acid for cleaning is an excellent way to protect your family from harmful germs and bacteria. It is safe, effective, and eco-friendly, making it a great choice for any parent who wants to keep her family healthy and safe.
As always, be sure to follow the instructions on the label and take all necessary precautions when using any cleaning product. Stay safe and healthy!
