Back to Work or School? Why Sanitizing and Disinfecting are More Important Than Ever

We've all become pandemic-fatigued. Masking, spraying and sanitizing have become a part of daily life. And although we've resigned ourselves to what looks like "the new normal" for the foreseeable future, many household cleaners can do just as much harm as good. Fortunately, there's a way to clean without harsh chemicals. Global industry leader Briotech has harnessed that technology, and it couldn't have come at a better time.

Bleach may be your go-to cleaner, but its toxicity can be harmful or even lethal, especially when combined with other cleaners. It may seem counterintuitive to use a product that can irritate or damage our respiratory system, particularly with COVID-19's effects targeting our lungs, but do we have a choice? Yes.

Briotech uses the power of HOCl — a natural part of our internal defense system produced by white blood cells. Briotech developed a way to manufacture and scale HOCl as an antimicrobial, biocide solution that inactivates pathogens like bacteria, viruses, spores, and fungi. The non-hazardous solution has long been used in hospital settings for wound care and to fight infection. Now, a range of products is readily available for home use.

With the end of unemployment benefits for more than 7 million Americans, it's only a matter of time before the in-person job market begins to gain steam. In addition, classes are back in session from elementary schools to universities, putting more people in close contact with one another. And for unvaccinated kids under the age of 12, every precaution is a step in the right direction, particularly with skyrocketing infection rates — about a 240% increase since mid-July, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Two Briotech products, in particular, are ideal for high-contact situations:

Sanitizer + Disinfectant — Perfect for hard, non-porous surfaces like kitchen counters, bathroom fixtures and door handles, Briotech can kill 99.99% of viruses and harmful bacteria.

Surface + Air Cleanser Pro — With greater concern about the air we breathe, it's equally important to regularly cleanse our environments as well as surfaces. No PPE masks are needed during or after use, and the no-rinse solution is ideal for homes or professional use.

Both solutions are safe for devices such as computers, tablets, cellphones, lunch boxes, backpacks, and all of your other work or school accessories.

A Clean Home for the Holidays

Even with the return to some sense of normalcy, most of us continue to spend more time at home with our loved ones and friends, opting for small gatherings rather than packed restaurants and bars. Whether you're planning on entertaining this holiday season or just cleaning up from a mid-week meal, Briotech's latest product launch is quickly gaining attention as one of the best cleaning products for kitchen grease and other uses.

Briotech's Cleaner + Degreaser has been a long time in the making, and part of the company's commitment to zero-waste manufacturing. The technology used to make Briotech's best-selling HOCl products also produces a byproduct (the result of splitting chemical bonds using electricity) often used as a key ingredient in many cleaners and soaps. Now no longer just a byproduct, as a part of their completed formulation it is exceptional at breaking down debris, grease, and oil.

A well-used oven will sparkle like new as Briotech's Cleaner + Degreaser breaks down those Sunday night spaghetti sauce splatters or is used to refresh high-contact points like kitchen cabinets and refrigerator doors. Its light lemon scent isn't intrusive, but rather a refreshing reminder that a clean home is a happy home.

Used in conjunction with Briotech's HOCl-based Sanitizer + Disinfectant, this powerful pair proves that deep cleaning is just a spray away.
