Quick answers

The Science:

Hypochlorous acid is one of the most effective known Power Cleaner. This weak acid with the chemical name HOCl is the same chemical produced by the human immune system to kill invasive organisms and fight infection. We replicate the human immune system by producing Hypochlorous acid (HOCl). We produce HOCl through an electro-dialysis (ED) process, using salt and water. Producing a powerful cleaner.

Q: Why haven’t I seen this before?

A: Hypochlorous was discovered in the 19th century by a British scientist. It was actually manufactured for the first time in the 1960’s. The only organizations that could take advantage of this incredible product were large scale industrial and agricultural operations such as dairy and poultry units, where they produced large scale batches of Hypochlorous onsite for immediate use. Our team and the scientists have worked out how to produce smaller batches with the active ingredient so we can now make it available to everyone.

Q: Is this suitable for vegans?

A: YES, The ingredients are water, salt and Hypochlorous acid only. None of which have been derived from animals.

Q: Is it safe for Kids & Elderly people?

A: YES, Is it safe for elderly people? Yes. It is widely used with significant benefits in the aged care sector.

Q: If you are getting numerous ‘doses’ a day, what effects will this have?

A: Nothing. It's safe and only will help keep things clean.

How often do you need to be sprayed in one day?

 A: As needed. For surface disinfection once a day is effective. For heavily used surfaces, eg after food preparation, spray and wipe after cleaning up.

Q: What Industry Specific applications can HOCL be used for?

A: Checkout the Application Specific page.

Q: Where can I get the color mapping for the Active Chlorine Test Strips?

A: On the side of packaging or below too.

Q: Directions - How much do I mix of the Powder with tap water?

A: Use the provided Active Chlorine Test Strips to hit your desired Part Per Million (PPM) based on the color mapping. It's the same PPM recommended usage/concentration as you would use with bleach. So, if you need 200 PPM for bleach you'll need 200 PPM with PowerWash Powder or 200 PPM with our ready-to-use PowerWash Liquid. We also have a HOCL powder dilution chart to help with different uses.

How is HOCL 100 times more effective than bleach if the same PPM?

A: Bleach Ions have a negative charge and so do cell walls so they repel each other. HOCL on the other hand has neutral ions and therefor is not repelled allowing HOCL to make it into the cell walls at a much greater number.
