Yes! Vital Oxide is one of the safest disinfectant solutions available on the market today while remaining one of the most powerful! It does not cause skin irritation, and will not cause skin to become sensitive to chemicals. In fact, it is not necessary to use personal protective equipment when handling it. If inhaled, it will not cause irritation to respiratory tissues. It is non-toxic if ingested. The EPA has given it the lowest toxicity rating (level IV). If the product is spilled, no special instructions for clean-up are required. Direct exposure to eyes may cause mild discomfort or eye irritation. It should be kept away from strong acids.

Vital Oxide has been proven to be effective against 99.999% of bacteria and viruses. See the complete kill list.

Surfaces that will contact clothing (e.g. chairs, seats, benches, etc) should be cleaned or rinsed with clean water between uses to prevent residue buildup that can occasionally alter the colour of clothing. Food contact surfaces do not need to be rinsed between uses, even when Vital Oxide is used at full strength.

Vital Oxide can be applied in several ways, depending on the surface type and surface area to be treated! It can be directly poured onto a cloth and wiped on surfaces, or it can be added to a spray bottle and sprayed on surfaces. For bigger jobs, it can be applied by a fogger/sprayer. For maximum efficiency and effectiveness, we recommend applying it with Victory electrostatic sprayers, Sanique electrostatic sprayers, and ULV foggers.

The disinfectant has a long shelf life, remaining completely effective for over one year after opening.

Vital Oxide kills microbes by chemically altering certain amino acids that contain sulfur. The amino acids are important building blocks in the proteins that help to form cell walls. When these proteins are destroyed, the cell wall ruptures and the organism dies. 

In the chemical reaction, Vital Oxide takes an electron from the amino acid and coverts back to a chlorite ion. The amino acid gives up an electron, which causes oxidation and ends up killing the organism.

Store in original closed container in a cool, dry place away from heat and open flame. Do not allow product to become overheated in storage. Avoid prolonged storage temperature above 40°C or 90°F. This may cause increased degradation of the product, which will decrease product effectiveness.

Yes. Vital Oxide is an excellent disinfectant to use around the house. Some of the best places to use it at home are the musty basement, bathrooms where mildew has accumulated (or on surfaces to protect against mold and mildew), and the kitchen to keep food-contact surfaces clean. The disinfectant has also been tested on carpets and can be used around the house to sanitize carpets and upholstery.

Sprayers/Foggers for Better Disinfection

Disinfectants can be applied using an electrostatic sprayer or ULV cold fogger. It is considered to be the one of the most effective and efficient ways to sanitize and disinfect.

  • Deliver better and larger coverage
  • Save cleaning time and labor
  • Use less disinfectant solution
  • Reduce the risk of cross-contamination
