Saloncide alcohol free disinfectant spray tigger 250mlWe put together some answers for the most popular questions we get asked about Saloncide


Why is 99.998% so important?

Most disinfectants kill 99% or 99.9% of micro-organisms. Bacteria are single celled organisms which divide rapidly, developing into groups or colonies. Disinfectants which kill only 99.9% (1 in a 1000) leave enough cells for them to recover quickly.

At 99.9998%, less than 100,000 cells remain, which is a level at which the population is no longer viable.

Saloncide further reduces the risk of recovery by creating a surface environment which bacteria cannot easily attach to, giving protection which carries on after cleaning has finished.

Is Saloncide as effective as other market leaders?

Saloncide is proven to be actually MORE effective and safer than other market leaders due to it's 99.998% germ kill rate, it's same hazard rating as water and faster germ kill time. For the FREE laboratory testing report, please contact sales@saloncidesolutions.co.uk

Why is 30 seconds important?

Most sanitizers/ disinfectants need two, four or even more minutes to be effective - some as long as fifteen minutes. The disinfectant has usually evaporated or been wiped away in much less time than this! Because Saloncide is fast acting, most fungi, viruses and bacteria are killed almost as soon as the product is applied.

Being water based, Saloncide evaporates slowly and. Unlike other disinfectants, it carries on working after the surface or equipment is dry.

What does Saloncide kill?

Saloncide kills a very wide range of bacteria, fungi and viruses. They include:

MRSA - C.diff - HIV-1 - E.coli - Chlamydia - Hepatitis B - Influenza A (Inc H1N1), Salmonella - Legionella - Staphylococcus aureus - Listeria - Pseudomonas - Aspergillus niger - Tuberculosis and many more (See Saloncide Lab tests)

How effective is Saloncide?

Most domestically available disinfectants kill up to 99.9% of germs within 5 minutes or longer. Saloncide kills most germs withing 30 seconds with a kill rate of 99.998%, which makes it more effective than most other chemicals currently on the market.
