SpectraSan 24/PURE Disinfectant
Formulated for Medical, Nursing and Childcare Environments.
SpectraSan 24/PURE is an EPA Registered, broad spectrum antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral disinfectant that can provide up to 24-hour residual effectiveness. It kills the most dangerous pathogens; influenza A (H1N1), MRSA, HIV, and a host of other dangerous pathogens and household germs – many within 30 seconds! SpectraSan SDC Water Pure™
Hundreds of thousands of small bottles of SpectraSan Water Pure have been sent to Southern Asia, China and, more recently, the devastating earthquake in Haiti’s disaster areas. People who otherwise would fall ill or die from drinking contaminated water are able to use the water at hand from streams, lakes or rainfall without fear of illness. And unlike shipments of bottled water, which take up a lot of space and are harder to transport, SpectraSan SDC Water Pure can get to the people who need it a lot quicker. Cruise Control™
Cruise Control provides the first 24-hour residual protection against Norovirus and other dangerous disease-causing pathogens. This highly concentrated product is designed to be mixed with water at the point of use to create a non-toxic hard surface antimicrobial. Cruise Control is being marketed to the cruise ship industry to help combat outbreaks of Norovirus, or “stomach flu,” a pesky viral infection that has plagued the cruise line industry for the past two decades. This incredible, advanced disinfectant is based on the first new germ killing technology introduced into the market in more than 30 years, plus it is a concentrate and can be diluted at 1:32.
SpectraSan Microfiber Cloths
Microfiber cleaning cloths penetrate surface crevices and remove minute dirt particles that are missed by conventional cloths. Split microfiber strands pick up dirt just like a magnet, attracting more than twice as many dirt particles as cotton or disposable towels, without producing annoying lint. Haze and oily residue left from waxes, polishes, glazes and cleaners are completely removed. Unlike conventional cloths, microfiber cleans glass and mirrors streak-free, even at the corners. Microfiber cloths are also recommended for cleaning chrome, plastic, vinyl and leather.
Ideal for use with SpectraSan 24/PURE Lightweight and modestly priced, our hand-held foggers are outstanding for smaller, more mobile applications. Most units have a one-gallon (4-liter) liquid reservoir and can be used with the 6100 turntable and our timers. Some models incorporate a short hose for targeted “point and shoot” fogging. These durable units require little maintenance; just drain liquid from internal lines after fogging and replace motor brushes if they should wear out. Portable Electrostatic Sprayer
Disinfecting facilities, MRSA protection and more! Using an electrostatic sprayer to sanitize against MRSA, mold, bacteria and viruses in schools, hospitals, hotels and restaurants is ideal because it gives a complete treatment. Only electrostatic sprayers allow disinfectant to completely cover complex shapes and penetrate into cracks and corners. Facility owners and managers can be confident that they are doing everything possible to provide a clean, safe environment. Our air-assisted electrostatic sprayers are available as a portable unit for spraying large, open areas, which gives you the ability to move in and out of rooms, around the exterior of lockers, stalls, houses or buildings.

These days there seems to be so many different “shades” of green it is hard to tell the difference between what is green and what is just good product marketing. You may be familiar with the term “greenwashing.” If not, let me explain, it’s a term describing the deceptive use of green marketing or PR. The term is generally used when more time and money has been spent advertising a product is green, rather than spending resources on environmentally sound practices.
Did you know? Most Americans are willing to pay a little more for household products if they’re both family-friendly and environmentally safe. Some manufacturers want to meet consumers halfway by selling products that are “sort of” green.
One leading manufacturer for example, is using common greenwashing images of a leafy forest to cash in on the green revolution and to promote their green cleaning wipes. They advertise the wipes as being biodegradable, but what about the chemicals in the wipes, how well do they break down in the environment? And the plastic container that these wipes are packaged in is definitely not biodegradable.
We live in a world where most of us are concerned with both our health and the environment. We know that between the overuse of energy and natural resources and overexposure to dangerous chemicals we are putting our health, our survival, and our planet in danger. While things are being done to help, we don’t really know if they have been done in time. What we do know is that greenwashing isn’t helping.
In a world where we all know something needs to give, companies are stepping in with green alternatives, but are they really green? What can we – the consumers do? How can we tell if a product is really green?
- If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. One example of this is if a label claims a product is “all natural.” Well, I’d read the label if I were you. If you see a really LONG list of chemicals that you can’t even pronounce chances are the product is not ALL natural.
- Look for labels that are very specific. For instance a product that says “made with 100% all natural products” is better than a product that just says “all natural.”
- Is the product really green or has the company just done a really good job of using the word green as a label design or product line name? Read the labels and make an informed decision, don’t be blinded by a good graphic design with cool pictures.
- Research the companies that are claiming to sell environmentally safe products.
- Learn the language. Terms like “natural” and “nontoxic,” have no standard definition, guaranteeing very little when found in advertising. They’re easy to slap on a product, and they’re not currently regulated.
- The bottom line, trust your gut. Buy products that you have researched and whose claims make sense.
