SpectraSan 24 is truly the first groundbreaking approach to microbial control in almost four decades. This incredibly innovative disinfectant technology is based on a new patented molecule – silver dihydrogen citrate (SDC). This proprietary product contains a dual efficacy mechanism, which promotes residual resistance to new “super strains” of microorganisms.SpectraSan 24 has a self-contained immunity protection system that not only provides long-term protection, but continues to fight bacteria and dangerous mutant pathogens that conventional disinfectants on the market today cannot.
SpectraSan 24 is non-flammable, non-corrosive, odorless, colorless and has the lowest toxicity rating (Category IV) assigned by the EPA. There are no harsh chemical smells or skin irritation that can be associated with other traditional disinfectants. The EPA does not require “Signal Words” or warnings for Category IV disinfectant products, but does have serious warnings for Category II disinfectant products, such as household chlorine bleach. Category II disinfectant products must be labeled with a number of the following warnings: Danger, Warning, Corrosive, Seek Medical Advice, may be fatal if absorbed through skin, may be fatal if inhaled, causes substantial but temporary eye injury and causes skin irritation.

First of all, many people typically do not know how to accurately measure dilutable disinfectants. Some people are not familiar with chemical use ratios or have a gallon container on hand to properly mix the correct amount of product with water. If too little product is added, the disinfectant will not provide the efficacy… And if too much product is added, the product can leave a residue on the surface that will eventually create a “Biofilm” or breeding ground for bacteria. Conventional hospital grade disinfectants have been assigned toxicity ratings of Level I or II by the EPA. This is an indication that the product is corrosive, toxic, is not environmentally safe, can irritate your skin, eyes, and mucus membranes in the lungs and could be dangerous to your health.
SpectraSan 24 has none of these disadvantages. There is no mixing. SpectraSan 24 has an EPA Category IV toxicity rating, which is the lowest rating assigned by the Federal EPA, so no protective gear is required, no need to rinse, it does not damage hard surfaces, soft metals, plastic, granite, Plexiglas, carpeting, upholstery, or fabrics, it may be applied in the presence of humans and animals, and there is no wasted product. Plus, SpectraSan 24 has the following advantages which include: its active ingredient, SDC, is EPA registered to kill CA-MRSA, kills faster than conventional products and offers a 24-hour residual bacterial kill.
Bleach is toxic and extremely dangerous if mishandled. Tremendous care must be taken when mixing a bleach water dilution and protective gear must be worn. Bleach will discolor fabrics and other materials so special care is required. The area must be well ventilated to avoid inhaling the toxic fumes emitted when using bleach. Any contact with the area being disinfected must also be avoided until the bleach has had enough time to disinfect (at least 10 minutes). Furthermore, the bleach dilution must stay wet for the entire time in order to be effective, and then must be rinsed with water. Once the bleach dries, it is no longer effective and any remaining bleach dilution loses its effectiveness over time so it must be discarded.
SpectraSan 24 has many distinct advantages over bleach. SpectraSan 24 is ready to use (no mixing required), does not require any protective gear to apply, does not require rinsing, does not stain or damage fabrics, is completely safe to use around people and animals, kills germs faster than bleach, and continues to protect for up to 24 hours!

No. SpectraSan 24 contains ionic silver, NOT dangerous metallic or colloidal silver. Ionic silver poses no threat to people, pets, or the environment. And it readily degrades into inert elemental silver in the environment — and that is not toxic either.
According to the EPA and OSHA, the ionic silver contained in SpectraSan 24 is non-hazardous. And EPA’s Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure tests confirm: waste does not exhibit the characteristics of toxicity as defined by 40 CFR 26.24 for silver content.
SpectraSan 24’s ionic silver solution exhibits 100% rapid biodegradability, is non-toxic, and poses no threat to the environment, hard surfaces, soft metals, fabrics, medical vinyl or other materials.
Microfiber cleaning cloths penetrate surface crevices and remove minute dirt particles missed by conventional cloths. Their split microfiber strands pick up dirt like a magnet — attracting more than twice as many dirt particles as cotton or disposable towels, without producing annoying lint.
Haze and oily residue left from waxes, polishes, glazes and cleaners are completely removed. Unlike conventional cloths, microfiber cleans glass and mirrors streak-free, even at the corners. Microfiber cloths are also recommended for cleaning chrome, plastic, vinyl and leather.
In addition, microfiber cloths are highly absorbent, retaining fluid at more than six times their dry weight — and they can be laundered up to 500 times without losing absorbency or tensile strength.
SpectraSan 24 does not allow bacterial resistance. Essentially, that means bacteria can never become immune to the deadly mechanisms of the SDC molecule.
“Traditional” antimicrobials merely pierce the cell wall of the microorganism. And although these bacteria are rendered temporarily inactive, they still have the capability of reproducing — or even reinventing themselves at a later time.
On the other hand, bacteria are actually attracted to SpectraSan 24 because they recognize citric acid as a food source.
This “Trojan Horse” attack allows SpectraSan 24 to enter the microorganism through membrane transport proteins. Once inside, the SDC molecule binds to DNA and intracellular proteins, causing irreversible damage. Metabolic and reproductive functions halt, and the organism not only dies — but can never reproduce or become immune to the SDC molecule.
No. It is not necessary to wear gloves, masks, or goggles when using SpectraSan 24 from a spray bottle. SpectraSan 24 is non-toxic, safe to use around people, pets… and the planet.
For legal reasons, we must show people wearing gloves and masks in publicly distributed videos.
Still, it’s always a good idea to wear a mask when fogging any product because liquids used through any misting device are reduced micron-size particles that could irritate the silica membranes leading to the lungs.
But rest assured, SpectraSan 24 is non-caustic, and contains no solvents, alcohols, or other harsh chemicals. In fact, SpectraSan 24 is the only disinfectant technology that is not required by the EPA to list “signal words” (warning, caution, danger, seek medical advice, etc) on its label.
Yes… and NO. Although independent laboratory clinical studies validate both the safety and efficacy of using SpectraSan 24 on food prep and food contact areas and surfaces, we have yet to receive our official authorization from the EPA.
Therefore, we are not allowed to list this application on the label. We will notify all of our distributors as soon as we receive the EPA’s announcement and authorization.
SpectraSan 24’s rapid and broad-spectrum efficacy is largely attributed to its dual-action mechanisms. Alone or in combination, these make SpectraSan 24 a powerful antimicrobial while mitigating microbial resistance.
Once applied to a surface, SpectraSan 24 forms a microscopic barrier that reactivates every time moisture or bacteria are reintroduced.
SpectraSan 24 not only destroys microorganisms on contact, but this microscopic film continues to halt all metabolic and reproductive functions — making it virtually impossible for the organism to survive, let alone reproduce.
No. SpectraSan 24 has been formulated solely as a high-grade, hospital-line broad-spectrum antimicrobial disinfectant.
Products classified as both a cleaner and disinfectant contain surfactants or wetting agents that actually reduce their efficacy claims in favor of cleaning functionality.
However, SpectraSan 24 is an excellent deodorizer because it kills bacteria that are typically the source of odors.
Yes, this is the safest course. We recommend reapplying SpectraSan 24 after a surface has been cleaned with a detergent solution. Not all detergent solutions affect the residual efficacy of SpectraSan , but we prefer to recommend caution.
On the other hand, cleaning with plain water will not adversely affect the efficacy ofSpectraSan 24.
Common sense should prevail. If a particular doorknob – or other surface — is touched by hundreds of hands during a 24-hour period of time, common sense dictates that the mere friction created by all of these hands would gradually take its tool, and that the surface should be sprayed more than once per day.
On less frequently contacted surfaces, SpectraSan 24 should easily last 24 hours.
