Use

According to The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), SARS-CoV-2 is believed to spread primarily from person-to-person through airborne respiratory droplets. But it may be possible for the virus to spread on surfaces too. Scientists know that similar respiratory viruses expelled into the air by coughing, breathing, or speaking can settle on surfaces, where they can linger in an active state for days. Although scientists aren’t sure yet how long the novel coronavirus remains active on a surface, one study conducted in a hospital found that similar coronaviruses can persist on hard surfaces like glass, metal, or plastic for up to 9 days (Journal of Hospital Infection 2020). During that time the virus can potentially be spread to anyone touching the surface, and to whatever they touch next.

The CDC recommends regular cleaning of frequently touched surfaces, along with thorough hand washing—both standard practices for helping slow the spread of viruses and bacteria.



Cleaning and disinfecting

Speed is of the essence because high-touch surfaces such as doorknobs, countertops, and electronic equipment can easily transmit viral and bacterial diseases. When using electrolyzed water as a surface sanitiser, simply spray on the surface and let it dry or use a sponge to spread it evenly. It does not leave any streaks and dries quickly.



Handwashing and disinfecting

Handwashing remains the No. 1 tip for preventing the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19). It’s common sense and it works. However, it must be done properly. Common recommendations are to use soap and water or as the next best option an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. However, over time repeated use of alcohol or strong soaps may lead to hand dermatitis.

Electrolyzed water is not a gel like alcohol-based hand sanitisers, it is a liquid. When used as a hand sanitiser it is, therefore, best if it’s sprayed on to the hands in a fine mist. Spray each hand by pumping 2-3 times on the bottle to ensure both hands feel “wet”, then spread the liquid evenly over the hands, ensuring all areas of the hands have been wet. Let your hands air dry, this normally only takes a few seconds.

Electrolyzed water can even be sprayed on your face before the removal of your facemask. The disinfectant does not cause any irritation to eyes, skin or damage or bleaching of clothing.



Sanitizing footwear

A research team from the CDC at a hospital in China discovered the virus on floors, computer mice, trash cans, sickbed handrails and doorknobs. What is most revealing in their study is that half of the medical teams’ shoes tested positive for the virus. The CDC concluded at the end of their study that stricter measures should be taken to sanitize footwear.



Effectiveness

Most pathogens are killed immediately on-contact. The weak acid hypochlorous solution had excellent microbicidal effects against a broad microbicidal spectrum of standard strains and clinical isolates in a short time. The disinfectant works by using oxidation to take away electrons disrupting the cellular structure of bacteria which basically destroys the cell walls of bacteria and protein coats of viruses, plus its low molecular weight makes if effective in penetrating cell walls and reacts faster where it destroys the DNA and RNA inside of bacteria and viruses – on a cellular level this is what our immune systems do.

In the 2005 International Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, it was reported for “the first time that dilutes solutions of hypochlorous acid, or free chlorine, as low as 200 -- or even 20 -- milligrams per litre will completely inactivate noroviruses on surfaces such as stainless steel and ceramic tile.” More recent tests on SARS and COVID-19.

It has consistently been proven to lower the colony count of microbial pathogens and spoilage organisms by 99.9999%.

Reseach on nasal spray

Methods: We treated human primary nasal epithelial cells with 3.5 ppm of hypochlorous acid and then examined the cells for cytotoxicity. We also investigated the bactericidal, fungicidal, and virucidal effects by challenging the cells with the following microorganisms Aspergillus fumigatus, Haemophilus influenzae, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Rhizopus oryzae, Candida albicans, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pneumoniae, and Streptococcus pyogenes. To study the virucidal effects of HOCl, we used the human influenza A virus to challenge the cells.

Results: : In the cytotoxicity assay and in the morphological examination, the cells did not show anytoxicity at 30 minute or 2 hours after treatment with HOCl. More than 99% of bactericidal or fungicidal activity was noted for all species, except for Candida albicans, in tap water at either pH 7.0 or 8.4. In addition, a 3.2-log10 reduction was achieved in cells challenged with the human influenza A virus.

Conclusions: A low concentration HOCl solution can be used as an effective nasal irrigation solution.
