Pride Cleaning & Restoration is always interested in promoting good health by reducing the environmental toxins we are exposed to daily, chemicals we clean with, wash with, toxins in the soil and water and toxins in our foods. As an Industrial Hygienist and environmental scientist, Pride is all too aware of the additive exposures we are subject to daily
Hydrolyze Disinfection Spray
Don’t just sanitize…hydrolyze! Backed by nature, electrolyzed water (ie. hypochlorous acid) is an all-natural, no-rinse, non-toxic, non-irritant, and environmentally safe antimicrobial solution that is the product of the electrochemical reaction of water, salt, and electricity.
It serves as a potent antimicrobial agent, approximately 100 times as effective as chlorine bleach.
Electrolyzed water is generated by the electrolysis of a diluted NaCl solution interacting with an electrolytic cell. This process creates an anolyte solution predominantly of hypochlorous acid (HOCl). HOCl is a powerful oxidant. A Better Way Distributing can generate large volumes of concentrated and stable HOCl in solution which is unobtainable via the preparation of traditional chlorinated chemicals. Electrolyzed water is highly biocidal and can kill common foodborne pathogens such as Salmonella, E. coli, Listeria, and Campylobacter in less than 30 seconds of contact. It has been proven to be effective against bacterial spores and viruses that can be highly resistant to other disinfectants. Electrolyzed water is also capable of dislodging and removing biofilm which can be a major contributor to contamination in pipes and clean-in-place (CIP) systems of beverage and dairy manufacturing.
What is electrolyzed water in general?
- Electrolyzed water, or E-Water, is water that has been treated to become a disinfectant against microbes like bacteria, viruses, fungi, spores, mold, and algae.
- E-Water’s main chemical is hypochlorous acid (HClO), which is created when saltwater undergoes electrolysis and is maintained at a neutral pH.
- Hypochlorous acid is fast-acting, affecting microbes on a mitochondrial level far quicker than hazardous chemical disinfectants.
- Non-toxic for humans, animals and the environment, and is also hypoallergenic so no special handling is required
- Usable as water, ice, or aerosol.
How does Hydrolyze work?
The ‘magic’ behind the entire HYDROLYZE product line is not really ‘magic’ at all, but rather nature at its purest combined with proven science. HYDROLYZE’s main ingredient is hypochlorous acid, a substance found naturally in the human body, and replicated by scientists by running an electrical charge through a combination of salt and water. This electro-chemical reaction reproduced the hypochlorous acid within a solution now known as anolyte water, and paved the way for a new generation of health, healing and cleanliness.
Now, to be fair, A Better Way Distributing was not the first to discover what nature already posesses. Anolyte water was first discovered by a French surgeon, Nobel Laureate Alexis Carrel, in cooperation with a British biochemist, Drysdale Dakin. Their time period was World War I, and their mission was to aid the soldiers wounded in battle. They used HOCI stabilized with boric acid, to flush the interior surfaces of those wounded. The solution proved effective in not only preventing sepsis, but also in accelerating the healing process, and saving countless lives.
Today, hypochlorous acid in a stabilized form is a weapon to use against the countless things that threaten the immune system of your body, or cleanliness of your environment. Our homes, works places, kids, pets, farms and food are all vulnerable to germs, bacteria, infection or disease. You have hypochlorous acid in your own body to fight the war on health from within, and now you have hypochlorous acid in a bottle to fight from the outside.
What is the advantage of hypochlorous acid over traditional cleaners you might ask? Most of the pathogens, particularly water-born, when used over time, develop resistance to cleansers 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. Hypochlorous acid is also free from harmful fumes.
Hypochlorous acid, in the body, works to break down the cells that are creating the infection by destroying the cell membrane and its DNA, thus halting the replication or growth process.
HYDROLYZE‘s products contain hypochlorous acid as an active ingredient and is formulated with varying concentrations to create a full line of products effective in cleaning and deodorizing.
