How is hypochlorous acid used in restaurants?


Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is used by restaurants as a no-rinse sanitizer for produce, meat, poultry, and seafood. HOCl prolongs shelf-life. HOCl is used for sanitation of food contact surfaces as well as for sanitation of all kitchenware, cutting boards, cutlery, and utensils. HOCl can be used as antimicrobial hand wash. It also replaces toxic chemicals used for cleaning sinks, bathrooms, and floors. HOCl is used to clean tables and seating areas of the restaurant. It can be applied via hoses or foggers to broadly disinfect large areas.
