DIRECTIONS HOW TO USE
Disinfectant: Remove heavy dirt from surface. Apply undiluted with spray, cloth or swab and ensure entire surface is covered. To kill SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) leave for 10 minutes before wiping down. To kill bacteria leave for 60 minutes before wiping down.
Sanitising: For complete surface sanitisation, add 100mL to 500mL spray bottle, and top up with clean water. Apply with spray, cloth or swab and ensure entire surface is covered and allowed to dry.
Urinal/Struvite & Odour Control: Add 50mL to a 500mL spray bottle, and top up with clean water. Spray, soak for 2-3 minutes, scrub, then wash down. NOTE: Soak heavily soiled areas with the undiluted solution for up to 30 min before scrubbing.
Degreasing: Add 50mL to a 500mL spray bottle, and top up with clean water. Spray onto surface, wait 30 seconds scrub if required, then wipe with a clean cloth.
Drains: Help keep drains clean, add 100mL to a bucket, and top up with 2L of clean water. Pour down drain.
Floor Cleaning: Add 100mL to a bucket, and top up with 4L of clean water. Mop the floor and allow dry. To maintain drains, pour balance down drain after mopping.
General Spray & Wipe: Add 30mL to a 500mL spray bottle, and top up with clean water. Spray onto surface and wipe with a clean cloth.
Note: Heavily soiled areas may need repeat treatments.

The Science Behind the Product
Surfactin Surfactin is a lipopeptide-based bioactive substance produced by microbial species belonging to the genus Bacillus. A high-purity surfactin was recovered from a Bacillus subtilis culture broth. Purified surfactin efficiently reduces interfacial tension at low concentrations. Surfactin was characterized regarding its applicability as O/W emulsifier. Emulsions were stable at pH values above 6 and NaCl concentrations up to 0.5 M. Emulsions had highly negative zeta-potentials up to −100 mV.
Biosurfactants are active compounds that are produced at the microbial cell surface or excreted and reduce surface and interfacial tension. Microbial surfactants offer several advantages over synthetic ones, such as low toxicity and high biodegradability, and remain active at extreme pH and salinity. Biosurfactants are produced by bacteria, yeasts, and filamentous fungi.
Thymol, chemically known as 2-isopropyl-5-methylphenol is a colourless crystalline monoterpene phenol. It is one of the most important dietary constituents in thyme species. For centuries, it has been used in traditional medicine and has been shown to possess various pharmacological properties, including antioxidant, free radical scavenging, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antispasmodic, antibacterial, antifungal, antiseptic and antitumor activities.
The Chemistry of Cleaning – How Surfactants Work: https://www.cleaninginstitute.org/understanding-products/science-soap/chemistry-cleaning
In order to clean dirt off our clothes and surfaces, the water needs to be able to reach the surface. Water is able to get to the surface if surface tension is reduced. To do this, we use a group of chemicals called surface active agents or surfactants. Surfactants change how water behaves. When a surfactant is added, the surface tension is reduced. Now water can spread out and wet the surface (e.g., clothes, dishes, countertops) we are trying to clean.
Every surfactant has two ends. One end wants to be in water, and the other does not. How these two ends interact with soil and water is the secret to how a surfactant works. Once the surfactant is added to water, the water-fearing ends try to stay away from the water.3,4 Watch this video4 to see how… https://youtu.be/F7-ie4uWX04
How Surface Tension is Measured: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8433748/
The critical micellar concentration (cmc) is a fundamental property of a surfactant solution. At surfactant concentrations near and above the cmc the surfactant molecules start to aggregate and form micelles. The formation of micelles affects many properties of a surfactant solution, usually introducing a marked change at the cmc in plots of property versus the surfactant concentration.
Can 6in1 be used as a floor cleaner?
Yes, but stop use if floor becomes slippery.
Is it okay with polished timber floors and tiles?
Yes. May discolour oiled timber floors. Ok on cured coatings. Careful on high gloss floors as may become slippery.
Will it remove limescale in the bathroom?
No. Use our Purachoice Bathroom cleaner for scale in the bathroom.
Does it leave streaks?
Will leave streaks on glass and high gloss finishes.
Does it kill mould?
No. We recommend our InvisiGarde Hospital Grade Disinfectant Spray & Surface Shield to help reduce mould and mildew.
Can it be used to descale toilets?
No but we recommend our Magic Multi-Use Descaler or All Purpose Descaler.
