There is a difference between disinfectants and cleaners. Cleaners are designed to remove dirt and germs. Disinfectants are supposed to kill germs. By nature, disinfectants can’t be benign because they are killers. Some are safe than others though.
Most disinfectants work on clean and non-porous surfaces. And the surface has to remain wet for a certain period of time. Read the instructions.
Force of Nature is a disinfectant and should be used accordingly. I don’t recommend using it as an everyday cleaner. Among other things, growing up in a sterile environment is linked to autoimmune disorders.
Force of Nature ingredients are hypochlorous acid and 0.0000003% sodium hydroxide.
In a way, hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is a form of chlorine. It’s also called electrolyzed water. During electrolysis of the solution of vinegar, salt, and water, hypochlorous acid (electrolyzed water) forms. For your reference, the chemical name of common household chlorine bleach is sodium hypochlorite (NaClO).
The concentration of chlorine present in electrolyzed water is usually over 10 thousand times less than in household bleach. To be on a safe side, Force of Nature states that “Those individually allergic to chlorine should avoid direct contact as it may cause irritation with symptoms of redness, itching, and swelling.”
Hypochlorous acid is one of the most effective disinfectants for the reduction and removal of foodborne pathogens. The EPA lists one hypochlorous acid-based disinfectant (called Costeuau) in the list of COVID-19 approved disinfectants. It says that the surface has to remain wet for 10 minutes.
Force of Nature is registered with the EPA as a disinfectant. And on March 26, 2020, it was added to the EPA list for approved disinfectants for use against COVID-19.
In conclusion, I believe that it is one of the safest and effective disinfectants.
