When Puracy creates new products – and improves upon our existing line of cleaners and personal care items – we review all of the messages, emails, phone calls, testimonials, and product reviews that we’ve logged meticulously. Simply put, customers are a crucial part of our R&D process.
Based on customer feedback (and the current pandemic), we knew that there was an incredible demand for a disinfectant spray. In fact, since the start of 2020, a disinfectant was the #1 request from Puracy customers.
Requirements for the Best Hydrogen Peroxide Disinfectant Cleaner Possible
Cold and flu season never really left us in 2020. Retailers have struggled to keep disinfectants on the shelves, and Puracy has been repeatedly asked to meet consumer demand. Whether a disinfecting spray or wipes, we took a close look at formulas that met our stringent product evaluation, safety, and performance.
Note: Unlike our other product lines, we’ve licensed this particular formula. It would have otherwise taken a minimum of one year to create, perfect, and test. We simply didn’t have the luxury of time to respond to market demand.
Disinfects and Cleans
Many competing products are solely disinfectants, yet most customers prefer a single product to clean while disinfecting. We wanted this spray to clean surfaces first, no matter how dirty they were. All you’d have to do is apply it and let the dwell time kill viruses and bacteria.
Disinfectants kill things, which means you’ll want to keep it out of the hands of children. But you don’t need a harsh product that’s harmful to you and your family. After reviewing active ingredients in direct competitor products (as well as versions used in hospitals), we found that they were typically highly synthetic or citric acid-based cleaners.
You won’t find the following ingredients in any of our cleaning products:
Unfortunately, harsh disinfectant ingredients (like bleach) aren’t good for the environment. Sustainability is incredibly important to Puracy, so we needed something that was safe for people, pets, and the environment alike.
Hydrogen Peroxide Is Good for Cleaning
We kept arriving back at hydrogen peroxide – and it checked all of our boxes.
Get the best tips from the cleaning obsessed.
Puracy crafts cleaning & care items that work really well. Our obsession with natural cleaning performance is our profession, and we're here to share it with you.
This common product is found in nearly every home’s medicine cabinet. In addition to killing mold and disinfecting surfaces, the surfactants in this spray break down built-up gunk.
After poring over scientific case studies and test results, we firmly believed that a hydrogen peroxide-based formula could provide the performance we needed to release an unbelievable disinfecting spray.
This Hydrogen Peroxide Cleaner Is Food-Safe
You wouldn’t use a bleach-based product on your strawberries, would you? Puracy Disinfecting Surface Cleaner has been tested and approved to be used as a fruit and vegetable wash. From food to chairs to cutting boards, our formula is approved for use in commercial organic kitchens.
Hydrogen peroxide breaks down into just oxygen and water. It’s gentle on the environment and is also safe for gray water and septic systems.
Does Puracy Disinfecting Spray Cleaner Kill Germs?
In addition to being a highly-effective antiseptic for wound treatment, hydrogen is also a bactericidal, virucidal, germicidal, fungicidal, microbicidal, and mycobactericidal ingredient.
When used correctly, our CDC-approved, EPA-listed Disinfectant Surface Cleaner kills 99.9+% of bacteria (in 1 minute) and 99.9% of viruses (in 10 minutes of soaking time), including:
- Salmonella Enterica Bacteria
- Staphylococcus aureus bacteria (ie. Staph)
- Pseudomonas Aeruginosa Bacteria
- Human Rhinovirus 42 (ie. the common cold)
- Influenza A virus.
- H1N1 flu virus (ie. swine flu)
- Listeria monocytogenes bacteria (ie. Listeria)
- Escherichia coli (ie. E.coli)
Our product is currently being reviewed for the EPA’s List N for COVID-19. Based on current research on how this product kills closely-related viruses, we feel confident that we will be granted a place on this list soon.
How Puracy Disinfectant Surface Spray Works
Just like our best-selling Multi-Surface Spray, we’ve designed this hydrogen peroxide disinfectant to be used on nearly every non-porous material*.
*Due to hydrogen peroxide’s bleaching properties, we recommend using our Multi-Surface Spray on natural stone (e.g. limestone, soapstone, marble).
For the bulk of cleaning tasks, mist surfaces and wipe with a clean, dry microfiber towel. Use tight, overlapping “Z” patterns. We haven’t added any fragrance to this product. While you may detect a light vinegar scent at the onset, the natural smell will dissipate as it dries.
Pro tip: While we recommend first using Puracy Multi-Surface Cleaner on heavily-soiled surfaces, our disinfectant cleans incredibly well without leaving a hazy residue behind.
Clean surfaces and spray until they’re thoroughly saturated. Let the formula stand for at least 10 minutes. Optional: Wipe clean with a clean microfiber towel.
Sanitizing (& Deodorizing) Non-Porous Kitchen Surfaces
Spray surfaces until they’re thoroughly saturated (or directly apply the spray using a dry paper towel, sponge, or mop). Let stand for at least 1 minute, then wipe clean with a dry microfiber towel. A water rinse is not required.
Washing Fruits & Vegetables
Spray raw, fresh fruits, vegetables, sprouts, and herbs with a liberal amount of this product, fully saturating them. Let them stand for at least 1 minute, then rinse them with clean water.
