How is hypochlorous acid used in hospitals?


Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) can be used to sanitize linens. HOCl can replace toxic concentrated chemicals for cleaning and disinfecting rooms and common areas. HOCl can be applied via foggers to broadly disinfect rooms and the air. HOCl can be used in the hospital kitchen as a no-rinse sanitizer for produce, meat, poultry, and seafood. It can be used to clean and disinfect all contact surfaces and kitchenware. HOCl can be placed throughout hospitals in dispensers as an antimicrobial hand wash.
