The Cleveland Clinic article along with many other articles I have read over the last few months highlights that the COVID-19 pandemic has more people disinfecting their homes than ever before. Sadly this has resulted in an increase in children swallowing cleaning products which can result in confusion, nausea, vomiting, breathing problems and other symptoms.
It baffles me why these products are even still around today when there are so many non-toxic alternatives. Products containing quaternary ammonium compounds, sodium hypochlorite and high % vol alcohol are toxic to us and our environment but out of maybe habit and ignorance people just continue to buy them!
I have to admit, I was one of those people. However the COVID-19 pandemic allowed me plenty of free time during lockdown to do some research on all these products, especially given that I am passionate about protecting my family! During this period, I came across a product called Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl). Funny that HOCl is made naturally by our white blood cells to fight off bacteria and inflammation subsequent to an infection or a trauma.
The stars were aligned and Gavin started investigating new business opportunities given that racing events were no longer gong to feature in our “new normal” world for some time! A close friend was investing in a plant to manufacture HOCl and SafeSpray was born!
SafeSpray is gentle on the skin, safe for the environment and is 100% naturally biodegradable. There are no harsh side-effects and I’ve been using it all over my home, in my car when I had to drive my daughter back to boarding school, as a hand sanitiser and even to keep my fur-babies safe after I’ve taken them to the park and they have not maintained their social distance! There is no need to rinse it off! And by using SafeSpray, we slow down the rate of toxic chemicals going into our water system. We also protect our children from swallowing nasty chemicals!
