Hamsters, gerbils, other pets, and children. The disinfectants you are using are harmful!
Switch to Disinfexpet – the veterinarian developed safe product for pets and children.

The most common chemicals are bleach, ammonia, quats (quaternary ammonium compounds), alcohol, phenols, and hydrogen peroxide.  The FDA/CDC publishes the N-List of 33 certified disinfectants. CLICK HERE for the list.


World Health Organization HOCl report:

We request that Aqueous Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl) be added to the core Essential Medicines List to address priority conditions in Categories 15.1 and 15.2 (Disinfectant and Antiseptic products), and Category 13 (Wound Care).

HOCl has emerged in the current pandemic as the most potent and environmentally safe disinfectant available and with a wide range of efficacy against many human pathogens, including the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.

In recent years compelling evidence of the potency of pure, stable preparations of HOCl in the inactivation of even the most resistant infectious agents, such as BSE Prions, and HPV16 viruses both of which are completely unaffected by disinfectants currently on the EML list) has made it clear that HOCl deserves a place in every public health program as a fundamental instrument of infectious disease control.

Manufacturing improvements for HOCl now enable reliable, consistent production of authentically pure, stable solutions of HOCl in industrial quantities, sufficient to meet the needs of large-scale institutional use patterns. Large volumes of cost-effective disinfectants are going to be necessary from now onwards for addressing pandemic requirements and in heightened awareness of infectious diseases worldwide.

High purity HOCl products permit safe application of a highly effective disinfectant with no risks to patients or staff – even allowing operators to forego PPE use. These developments put HOCl in the hands of those most in need; they can shift thepower balance in the confrontation with pandemic agents while at the same time matching the growing demand for wide-spectrum antimicrobial agents that do not contribute to resistance traits. HOCl availability is an especially appropriate resource in the face of natural disasters and the medical resources they require, not only for disinfection, but also for food safety, personal hygiene, and wound care.

HOCl SAFE FOR PREMATURE BABIES:  “This series of premature infants demonstrates the safety of pure hypochlorous acid and extends the usage age younger than that previously reported for children.”  – The Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters, Norfolk, VA

“Through further research, Hrubec has linked ADBAC and DDAC exposure to developmental and fertility problems in mice. Separately, other scientists have found quats can exert negative effects on cellular processes.” Click HERE for one of many studies.  

AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER STUDY – “A total of 16 studies inspected estimated gestational exposures to toxicants and ASD with all but one (94%) reporting a positive association.”  

Researchers found that mothers of children with autism were 1.5 times more likely to be exposed to workplace solvents compared with mothers of children not on the spectrum.”


“The researchers also looked at exposure to specific disinfectants: glutaraldehyde (a strong disinfectant used for medical instruments), bleach, hydrogen peroxide, alcohol and quaternary ammonium compounds (known as “quats”, mainly used for low-level disinfection of surfaces such as floors and furniture). All of these were associated with an increased risk of COPD of between 24% to 32%.” 

“The purpose of this [GARGLING] study was to compare the preventive effects of the slightly acidic hypochlorous acid HOCl) mouthwash and chlorhexidine (CHX) mouthwash as a chemical plaque control agent for oral diseases…”  CONCLUSION: “CHX, which is currently widely used in dentistry, can be said to be inconvenient to use due to its strong fragrance and taste, and there have been many reports on the side effects on the oral cavity of its long-term use. Therefore, if HOCl, which is harmless to the human body and has an extensive sterilizing power, is used instead of CHX, safe and effective oral care will be achieved.”   https://tinyurl.com/y4ym7zsx

The CDC has bleach and hypochlorous acid on the list of 33 chemicals to disinfect COVID19, The active ingredient in bleach that kills pathogens is HOCl, but in bleach when diluted to the recommended use of 10:1, the percentage of HOCL is less than 10%. 

American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons Hypochlorous Acid: A Review Michael S. Block, DMD,* and Brian G. Rowan, DMD,

“An ideal disinfectant and sanitizer must be nontoxic to surface contact, noncorrosive, effective in various forms, and relatively inexpensive. HOCl may be the disinfectant of choice for coronaviruses in an oralmaxillofacial surgery (OMS) office. HOCl is an endogenous substance in all mammals and is effective against a broad range of microorganisms.”

“Individuals working in the dental and medical field using surgical and high-speed handpieces are at risk from aerosolization.”

“When HOCl solutions were sprayed directly onto sheets containing the virus for 10 seconds, the solutions of 100 and 200 ppm inactivated AIV immediately. The 50-ppm solution required at least 3 minutes of contact time. These data suggest that HOCl can be used in spray form to inactivate AIV. When the aerosol was not sprayed directly onto an inoculated surface, a lower amount of solution had a chance to come into contact with the AIV. It required at least 10 minutes of contact to be effective. The ability of a sprayer to make smaller particles may help a solution’s molecules to be suspended in the air for a longer period because of their low settling velocity rate. This may increase the solution’s chance of coming into contact with pathogens and inactivating them. Thus, the fogger used should have an aerosol size less than 20 microns.”

As you are aware, we have other strong disinfectant agents at our disposal. Bleach is widely used in hospitals and medical practices and shares the same chlorine family as HOCl. Research shows that they both kill bacteria, fungus, spores, and viruses. Yet bleach is highly irritating to the eyes, skin, and lungs-and inhalation over long periods could be carcinogenic.  In contrast, HOCl has a temporary and mild chlorine smell that dissipates quickly, it is non-irritating, and it does not have poisonous side effects.

Alcohol is a popular disinfectant to use in clinic for wiping down instruments, furniture, and is a key ingredient in hand sanitizers. Ethyl alcohol (70%) is considered more effective compared to isopropyl alcohol. Both are bactericidal, fungicidal, and viricidal but are not effective against bacterial spores.3

Hand sanitizers with alcohol are used daily in many medical offices, but over time repeated use may lead to hand dermatitis. I became allergic to hand sanitizers after using it for many months in clinic. It was extremely irritating and embarrassing to have a rash on my hands. After discontinuing hand sanitizers and using latex free gloves, it still took months for my hand dermatitis to resolve. In one study, the prevalence of contact dermatitis related to hand hygiene ranged from 25 to 55 percent.  Fortunately, HOCl acid can also be used in place of hand sanitizer with no irritating side effects. Moreover, punch HOCL delivers to pathogens is more powerful than the one delivered by alcohol.     CLICK HERE for study.
