ingredients

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) places disinfectant cleaners into one of four toxicity categories.  BYOTROL24™ is rated as a Category 4 disinfectant, the lowest and relatively safest toxicity category.  BYOTROL24™ emits no harsh fumes, can be used without gloves, and is non-corrosive on surfaces.

The four toxicity categories, from least to most toxic are:

  • Toxicity category IV is Practically non-toxic and not an irritant  >>>  BYOTROL24™
  • Toxicity category III is Slightly toxic and Slightly irritating
  • Toxicity category II is Moderately toxic and Moderately irritating
  • Toxicity category I is Highly toxic and Severely irritating
Active ingredients are listed on the BYOTROL24™ product label.  In case you can’t read the small print on the label, here you go:
 
Active Ingredients:
00.324%   1-Decanaminium, N-decyl-N,N-dimethyl-, chloride
00.215%   Alkyl* dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride *(67%C12, 25%C14, 7%C16, 1% C18)
00.539%   Poly (hexamethylenebiguanide) hydrochloride
98.922%   Other ingredients
100%         Total
 
If you’re curious what’s in the other 98.9%, it’s mostly filtered water, some surfactants to help with cleaning, and a little bit of fragrance (for our fragrance products).

We do not normally send out Safety Data Sheets to the general public since they are technical documents for professional use.  The information on the product label contains health and safety information transcribed from the Safety Data Sheet and should provide the relevant information for you.

No dyes of any kind are in BYOTROL24™.

BYOTROL24™ contains neither ammonia nor bleach.
 
Bleach is a powerful chemical that can destroy germs.  Unfortunately, bleach can also damage or stain the surfaces in your home.  Bleach also produces harsh, unpleasant fumes that can irritate the eyes, mouth and lungs.  Scientists at Byotrol developed BYOTROL24™ to be bleach-free while delivering strong, effective, and long-lasting germ control.

We fragrance our products with a mixture of natural essential oils and synthetic fragrance components. We use synthetic fragrance components where natural alternatives would have to be sourced from animal origins or be used at high levels that could cause irritation to the end user. All our fragrances are registered with the EPA and our products are evaluated to be in the lowest toxicity class.

product usage

What many people do not realize is that unlike dirt and grime, which can take a while to accumulate after cleaning, germs begin growing back almost instantly.  Some bacteria, such as E. coli (Escherichia coli) that cause intestinal infection, can reproduce every 20 minutes.  At this rate of growth, a single bacterium can grow into trillions of bacteria in one day.

BYOTROL24™ is the only household cleaner that not only disinfects surfaces eliminating OVER 99.9% of germs, but also keeps surfaces sanitized eliminating bacteria for 24 hours.

The problem is that typical cleaning and sanitizing products contain germ-fighting agents that evaporate from the surface in a few minutes or get easily removed as people and pets come in contact with surfaces.  This leaves surfaces vulnerable within a matter of minutes to the re-growth or transfer of bugs.
 
Using standard disinfecting products more frequently is not necessarily the answer either.  It makes the germs more resistant and as a result can give rise to super-bugs such as MRSA.
Individual bacteria are too small to see with the naked eye.  Bacteria are up to a thousand times smaller than the human eye can see, and viruses can be ten times smaller again.  So, while dirt and grime can be seen, there is no easy way to check the same for bacteria and viruses which populate virtually every surface of your home.  That is why BYOTROL24™ must pass a range of rigorous, independently run, scientific tests to demonstrate that the product cleans your home not only of dirt and grime but also of bacteria and viruses.
 
With regular use of BYOTROL24™, your home should smell fresher for longer, since BYOTROL24™ is working longer than a standard disinfectant to control the bacteria that produce odors.

For round-the-clock germ control, it’s best to use BYOTROL24™ daily on “high risk” surfaces such as toilet handles, doorknobs, and counters since these will be more prone to germ contamination you can pick up with your hands.  Ultimately, how often you clean comes down to your personal needs and habits.

BYOTROL24™ can be used on most hard, non-porous, non-food contact surfaces such as counters, handles, sinks, floors, bathtubs, toilets and other surfaces.
 
We always recommend testing any new surface cleaner in an inconspicuous area first to make sure it’s compatible with the surface.
BYOTROL24™ can be wiped dry or allowed to air dry after application.  After spraying BYOTROL24™, be sure to let the surface stay wet anywhere from 1-10 minutes to allow time for the disinfectant to fight and kill germs.  Here are the recommended surface contact times:
 
VIRUSES – 2009-H1N1 Influenza A virus (1 minute), Coronavirus (1 minute), Respiratory syncytial virus (1 minute), Rotavirus (2 minutes), Feline calicivirus as a surrogate virus for Norovirus (5 minutes).
BACTERIASalmonella enterica (1 minute), Escherichia coli O157:H7 (2 minutes), Listeria monocytogenes (2 minutes), Staphylococcus aureus (2 minutes), Streptococcus pyogenes (2 minutes), Enterobacter aerogenes (5 minutes), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (5 minutes).
FUNGICIDALTrichophyton mentagrophytes (10 minutes).
 
For 24-hour surface sanitizing, allow the surface treated with BYOTROL24™ to remain wet for five minutes before wiping dry.
Shake well before use on hard, nonporous, non-food contact surfaces.  Preclean if heavy soil is present.
 
To Disinfect & Deodorize:  Spray on surface until thoroughly wet.  Surface must remain wet for appropriate contact time (see below).  Wipe dry. No rinse required.
 
To Sanitize:  Spray on surface until thoroughly wet.  Let stand for 10 seconds. Wipe dry.
 
To Sanitize for 24 Hours:  Spray on surface until thoroughly wet.  Let stand for 5 minutes. Wipe dry.
 
To Control Mold & Mildew for 7 Days:  Spray on surface until thoroughly wet.  Allow to air dry.
 
Here are the recommended surface contact times to kill different varieties of germs:
 
VIRUSES – 2009-H1N1 Influenza A virus (1 minute), Coronavirus (1 minute), Respiratory syncytial virus (1 minute), Rotavirus (2 minutes), Feline calicivirus as a surrogate virus for Norovirus (5 minutes).
BACTERIASalmonella enterica (1 minute), Escherichia coli O157:H7 (2 minutes), Listeria monocytogenes (2 minutes), Staphylococcus aureus (2 minutes), Streptococcus pyogenes (2 minutes), Enterobacter aerogenes (5 minutes), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (5 minutes).
FUNGICIDALTrichophyton mentagrophytes (10 minutes).
BYOTROL24™ prevents the growth of mold and mildew for 7 days with just one application.  However, if black mold has already been established (a germ called Aspergillus Niger or Brasiliense), removal of black mold requires a strong oxidizing agent such as bleach.  
 
Keep in mind that BYOTROL24™ rinses away with water, so for maximum mold & mildew control, be sure to apply BYOTROL24™ on bath surfaces after showering or bathing.

We suggest that BYOTROL24™ should be used within two years of purchase.

Yes.  The plastic we use for BYOTROL24™ is 100% recyclable.  It’s always a good idea to rinse out any cleaning bottle before offering for recycling.

Of course, as with any product – from the food you keep in your fridge to all the other cleaning products you keep in your home – BYOTROL24™ needs to be stored and used responsibly.  So, we encourage you to read the label and follow directions for use.

BYOTROL24™ can be used in pet areas when used as directed.  BYOTROL24™ is not dangerous if it comes in contact with pets’ skin or fur, but you should wipe excess amounts off the skin or fur with water.  If swallowed by a pet, call your vet immediately.

BYOTROL24™ does not contain any ingredients that will harm your septic system when used as directed.

Yes.  BYOTROL24™ can be used on stone surfaces such as granite and/or marble provided that the stones are sealed. 

BYOTROL24™ is non-corrosive, meaning it will not damage, dry out or corrode common household surfaces.  As a general precaution, we recommend testing an inconspicuous area first when dealing with unsealed stone, painted or unfinished wood or any other surface you are particularly concerned about.

BYOTROL24™ can be used in children’s areas, including high chairs and/or bathtubs, when used as directed.  BYOTROL24™ does not emit harmful fumes and is non-corrosive on surfaces.
 
Like all cleaning products, please keep out of reach of children.
Like all germ-fighting disinfectant products, BYOTROL24™ should not be ingested.  Please keep out of reach of children.
 
If BYOTROL24™ is swallowed, dilute with a glass of milk or water and call your doctor or a poison control center immediately.
Don’t panic!  Simply wash your skin thoroughly with soap and water and launder your clothing.
 
The First Aid instructions listed on the product label for BYOTROL24™ advise washing your skin for 15-20 minutes and calling a poison control center.  But don’t worry, this was written with an abundance of caution and safety in mind. 

BYOTROL24™ will not hurt or constrain the development of your natural immunity.  The natural immune systems which we are born with and develop into adulthood are still one of our best defenses against germs and fighting infections.  Studies have shown that exposure to germs at a young age help develop these systems. And not even the most highly effective disinfectants such as BYOTROL24™ can guarantee a germ-free environment, so the exposure that is necessary to develop our immune systems will still be present.  BYOTROL24™ provides another layer of defense – along with your natural immune system – which helps protect against infections.
