Are you using the correct antibacterial hand pot-wash chemical?


Cleenol manufactures 3 antibacterial products for hand washing of dishes. 


Two of the products kill germs on the dishes when diluted;

Evolution Antibacterial Potwash – a super concentrate dispensed from the Evolution concentrate system and available in 1.5L pouches.

Imperial Bactericidal Detergent – a concentrate available in 5L.


These contain germ killing agents which are only compatible with moderately foaming detergents, so they do not produce high volumes of foam in the sink. This does not mean that they do not clean exceptionally well as high foam is not always an indicator of cleaning performance. However both comply with BSEN1276 when diluted in hand hot water and the dishes left to soak, killing 99.999% germs in 2 minutes (for the Evolution product), and 99.9% in 3 minutes (for the Imperial Bactericidal Detergent).


One kills germs only when used neat:

       Cleenol Germicidal Detergent – a concentrate available in 5L


This is a traditional style high foaming detergent. Here the biocide is compatible with high foaming detergents; however the choice of germ killing agents available for this type of formulation is limited to ones with poor bactericidal properties. So whilst this product excels at foaming it only complies with the BSEN1276 when used neat on sponges. It does not kill germs on dishes when diluted in the sink.
