Disinfectant chemicals can be harsh, caustic, and even dangerous. Yet, we often turn to bleaches and similar compounds when faced with the need for an effective cleaner/ antimicrobial agent.
Although these products may be familiar to us, they come with several obvious drawbacks. Conventional antimicrobials are often simply ineffective for the job at-hand, and can easily stain or corrode most materials. And, even at use concentration, many of these products are health hazards that can readily burn or irritate skin.
