Activate™ spray automatically mixes the CDC-recommended 10% Sodium Hypochlorite Solution for hospital and laboratory use.
How does it work?
Using our patented DLS bottles (you can check them out here) we created a solution using the highest quality bleach. The components within the spray-head work in conjunction with the specially designed bottle plug and dip tube within the bleach cartridge. By engineering our DLS sprayer to specifically dispense 5.25% Sodium Hypochlorite at a 10% (9:1) ratio, we reached the perfect formula recommended by the CDC and sent it off to the EPA for approval. The best part? Our method yields approximately 1 gallon of solution per 1 bleach cartridge! See how easy it is to use..
STEP 1. Fill the sprayer’s empty water bottle with cool tap water and then insert the sprayer’s tube down into the filled water bottle. Close the sprayer tab to lock the water bottle into place.
STEP 2. Lock the bleach cartridge onto the other side of the sprayer
STEP 3. Sprayer is now ready to use. Hold the sprayer 6″- 8″ away from the surface and spray thoroughly.
