So for sanitizing purposes we are are required to use a Hospital Grade EPA registered cleaner (or the daily mixed bleach mixture).

Does anyone know of a more natural cleaner that would fit that bill??

I like tea tree oil. I'm not sure if it's recognized by the EPA for being antibacterial, although it should be!

You could try Basic G from Shaklee, it's non-toxic (in diluted form) and most licensors are fine with it.

Here's a page I found relating directly with it's use in Daycares, including the EPA number. It's toward the bottom.

Never heard of it, but I'm going to look into it.

I posted once, and it didn't show up, so I posted again. Now they are both there!

I'm having a hard time finding a link for it that isn't associated with a specific salesperson. But here's someones site that compares it to bleach and lists all the nasties it kills.

If I can find it on their main site I'll post the link for you.

That's funny because I actually sell Shaklee products but have never been able to find anything on them being labeled "Hospital Grade". We use all their products in our house and I told my licensor that and she said if it doesn't specify Hospital Grade I'm risking a write up :(.

I am not aware of a way for a chemical to have disinfectant properties without having some level of human toxicity.

This is true whether a chemical is naturally occuring or man made.

I trust Q-128. It is what I use daily. :Sunny:

I use Melaleuca's Sol-U-Guard; tea tree oil based! :D It just received it's hospital grade certification. (You reminded me - I need to print it out!)
