We typically associate viruses and germs to the outdoors. Contrary to common belief, however, the kitchens, bathrooms and dining areas in our homes can contain many germs, viruses and bacterial agents that are dangerous to the health of your family. And, rather than use chemical-laden bleach products to disinfect those places, more homeowners are finding an unbeatable ally in hypochloris acid (HOCL). It doesn’t matter whether you make your own hypochlorous acid or buy it off-the-shelf, there are countless reasons that it is a more sought-after options for protecting your home and family.
High-end Home Protection
Don’t be fooled – hidden germs and viruses can infiltrate right into your homes, and create untold health issues for everyone! Food products, such as poultry, fresh seafood, and meats, for instance, may contain harmful bacteria, such as listeria and salmonella. Here are some reasons to use hypochlorous acid solution, produced at home, to sanitize your foods, dining rooms, and kitchens.
- Sanitize Fruits and Vegetables
One way to ensure the edibles in your home are safe from food-borne illnesses, is to sanitize them before consumption. Moms and dads may balk at the idea of spraying chemical-laden disinfectants on the fruits and vegetables they plan to feed their family – and rightly so! Most “safe” sanitizers aren’t really food safe, and may leave a residue of chemicals behind on the surface of the edibles.
However, HOCL disinfectants are the exception. Whether you use home-made (using a HOCL maker) hypochlorous acid or buy it commercially, the solution is 100% safe. In addition to fresh produce, you can even rinse poultry, beef, fish, and other livestock produce, and never worry about the aftereffects. Made from everyday home products – salt, tap water, and electricity – HOCL is 100% food-safe, and doesn’t even require an after-rinse. Your produce is fit for human consumption immediately upon disinfecting it with HOCL.
- Make Kitchen and Dining Pots and Pans Safe
Some of the more critical areas of the home, where bacteria and germs proliferate, are the kitchen and dining area. Countertops, tables, shelves, and chairs, are exposed to airborne and touch-transferred impurities. The biggest risk of contagion, however, are improperly sanitized pots, spoons, pans, and cooking, serving, and eating utensils. Unfortunately, the use of harsh chemicals, as part of a sanitization strategy, may not be advisable in these areas.
Using a hypochlorous acid solution to disinfect and sanitize your kitchen and dining areas is a safer alternative. Because there are no dangerous chemicals used in preparing HOCL-based sanitizers – just salt, water and electricity, your pots and pans can directly be disinfected and sanitized without risk of chemical fallout.
- Toys, Games and Sports Equipment
Another common source of home contagion of viruses, germs, and bacteria, are toys, sporting equipment and games that are either used by your kids or your pets. Often, the first impulse is to take these items and douse or spray them liberally with bleach or other chlorine-based sanitizers. Doing so could further complicate things, especially if pets or young kids put some of those items (such as plastic bottles, bricks, or pet chew-toys) into their mouth.
Use the safer alternate – an HOCL sanitizer. Whether you use a home HOCL machine to produce hypochlorous acid or buy it at your supermarket, it is 100x more effective than chlorine bleach, and safer to use in home settings.
