NatraSan for all: how to reduce the number of disinfectant products you need.

The average UK household has 10 cleaning and disinfectant products clogging up the cupboard under the sink. From surface cleaner and bleach, to floor spray and toilet cleaner, we tend to use a different product for every part of our home. But, did you know you could make life a little easier by reducing the number of bottles you need and replacing them with one bottle of NatraSan?

A multi-functional disinfectant

As NatraSan has no alcohol, preservatives or essential oils, and kills 99.9999% of germs on impact, it’s as safe to use for disinfecting your toilet, as it is for ridding your baby’s favourite teething toy of germs. This also means it’s far more effective than general household sanitisers and disinfectants which take between 10-15 minutes to destroy pathogens.

The magic ingredient in NatraSan is pure hypochlorous acid (HOCl), which is the body’s own antiseptic and produced in all humans and animals. The acid is mild, but is an incredibly effective substance released by our white blood cells to kill germs, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeasts and moulds.

Hard and soft surfaces

As well as being used to disinfect hard surfaces in the kitchen, bedroom, living room and bathroom, NatraSan can also be used on soft surfaces and textiles, such as curtains and sofa cushions. You can be safe in the knowledge there’s no sodium hypochlorite in NatraSan, the active ingredient in bleach, which would discolour fabric and leave behind that distinctive chlorine smell.

Extra benefits

As general cleaning products are full of chemicals, they can be extremely corrosive and bad for our skin, but NatraSan has no harmful chemicals, and is so gentle it can be sprayed directly onto any part of our body with no side effects – you can therefore ditch the rubber gloves.

Additionally, as we’ve all become acutely aware of our overuse of plastic, replacing our household cleaners with NatraSan means we can reduce our plastic bottle usage. NatraSan comes in varying sizes, from the 50ml Pocket Buddy, through to a five litre bottle, making it easy to use throughout your home and while you’re on the go.
