FAQ– ADCLEAN Products
What is ADCLEAN?
ADCLEAN products are hydroalcoholic gel and liquid solutions intended for hand sanitization and solid surface disinfection.
How does one effectively sanitize their hands with ADCLEAN?
Adclean in liquid sprayable form: Vaporize ADCLEAN twice into palms, rub the back of each hand, between fingers, thumbs, fingertips, and wrists for at least 15 seconds.
ADCLEAN in gel form: Pour the required amount in the palm of your hand (3ml minimum) and rub for 30 seconds
Can Adclean be used on children?
Adclean Medical, our medical grade formulation, can be used on children's hands. One must ensure that the product is applied by an adult and that it is immediately stored in a safe place that is inaccessible to children.
Can I use ADCLEAN on surfaces other than my hands, such as keyboards, door handles, and stair railings?
Yes. ADCLEAN in liquid sprayable form is also designed to disinfect solid surfaces. Simply spray ADCLEAN twice onto the surface and allow the product to evaporate. For greater efficiency and wherever possible, use a clean paper towel and rub the object for several seconds.
Hoes does ADCLEAN Formulated according to World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations?
The World Health Organization (WHO) developed internationally recognized and laboratory tested antiseptic formulations. ADCLEAN products were developed in accordance with WHO recommendations and are approved by Health Canada. Adclean Medical is also approved by the FDA. All Adclean products have strong antimicrobial power allowing rapid and effective disinfection of a wide range of microorganisms.
What is the chemical composition of ADCLEAN products?
ADCLEAN products are composed of the following:
- An alcohol -> isopropanol / isopropyl alcohol (75%) or ethanol -> antimicrobial agent.
- Distilled / purified water -> slows evaporation of the solution, therefore increasing action time of the alcohol.
- Glycerin -> plant-derived compound, preserves moisture
- Hydrogen peroxide -> eliminates microbial spores that contaminate bulk solutions and containers.
- Essential oil -> To provide a more pleasant odor
Does the gel formulation easily transfer from a 10L to a smaller pump bottle?
Absolutely. Adclean gel can be easily transferred from a 10L to a bottle.
Can the gel formulation be used in a hand sanitizer dispenser?
Absolutely. Our gel is sufficiently liquid and easily transferred from a hand dispenser.
Is ADCLEAN effective against viruses?
ADCLEAN products kill bacteria and most viruses. However, no studies have shown the effectiveness of hand sanitizers for certain viruses such as hepatitis A, hepatitis B or HIV. In doubt, contact a professional healthcare organization.
Once ADCLEAN is applied to my hands, am I protected for a few hours?
No. Alcohol-based disinfectants do not form a long-lasting protective film on the hands because the alcohol evaporates. It is therefore important to reapply when a possibly contaminated surface has been touched.
Can I dilute Adclean Medical with a little water to extend its use?
ADCLEAN Medical is made up of 75% isopropanol. Adding water reduces the % of alcohol and thereby the product's antiseptic nature. It is therefore not advisable to add water.
