Clean Republic abandons harsh chemicals and toxic fumes to produce a hypochlorous acid (HOCl) formula that cleans, sanitizes and disinfects surfaces from households to hospitals. Clean Republic products are not your typical cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting products. They are naturally derived, sustainable and eco-friendly. Yet, they are equally or even more effective than the more toxic products on the market. Clean Republic products don’t cause one issue while solving another.
Clean Republic Disinfectant+Sanitizer has demonstrated effectiveness against viruses similar to COVID-19 on hard, nonporous surfaces. Therefore, Clean Republic Disinfectant+Sanitizer can be used against COVID-19 when used in accordance with the directions for use against Norovirus and Rhinovirus type 16 on hard, non-porous surfaces. Refer to the CDC website at https://www.cdc.gov/ for additional information. This product is also listed on the EPA’s List N, which lists the products registered for use against COVID-19. *Please note our All-Purpose Cleaner is not registered with the EPA and thus does not make any specific kill claims.
Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl) is the infection fighting compound found naturally in human white blood cells. Inside of the body, HOCl works to fight off bacteria and viruses. This proprietary solution is replicated outside of the body by running an electrical charge through a combination of salt and water. The resulting electro-chemical reaction produces HOCl within a solution now known as anolyte water. This solution has paved the way for a new generation of health, healing and cleanliness.
HOCl works to break down the cells that are creating an infection by destroying the cell membrane and its DNA, thus halting its replication or growth process. The human body produces HOCl to reverse markers of epidermal aging, protect against environmental aggressors and cleanse the skin. When utilized as an application outside the human body, a PH-neutral HOCl solution, like Clean Republic, works in much the same way.
Our products do not contain any fragrances or essentials oils as this would destabilize our main ingredient, HOCl. Our solutions have a very slight chlorine smell upon dispensing, which dissipates almost immediately, but acts as a deodorizer.
The great thing about Clean Republic is that it can be used on virtually any hard surface that needs to be cleaned. Our products work great on any tables or countertops, floors, yoga or gym mats, desks, laptops, cell phones, windows or walls. It's free of harsh chemicals and fumes and won't harm the skin.
Over time, HOCl can be tough on certain metals such as untreated steel, aluminum, silver or chipped enamel. To avoid any pitting or discoloration, we advise that you wipe these surfaces down after applying our solution. If you are soaking tools, we recommend soaking for 2-10min, rinse with water and then dry. When using the Clean Republic Disinfectant + Sanitizer, please refer to the respective contact times necessary for use against certain bacteria and viruses.
Most of the pathogens, particularly water born, when used over time, develop resistance to disinfectants such as sodium hypochlorite (bleach). In comparison, anolyte application, as a water disinfectant, used on a daily basis over the course of ten years demonstrated that no resistance was developed over time to pathogenic microorganisms. HOCl is also free from harmful fumes and has a neutral pH.
Our products should always be used in a fashion consistent with the directions on our label. However, unlike the threat posed by many other cleaners and disinfectants (oftentimes loaded with carcinogens), Clean Republic is free of dangerous synthetic chemicals and toxic fumes and is gentle enough to use around people, plants, pets and food prep surfaces (listed OMRI organic).
