Laundry additive uses COVID-killing spray formula to kill germs on fabrics

20 April 2021

A laundry product that eliminates germs and odour-causing bacteria on clothes between washes has been launched by biotech cleaning company Zonitise. Zionitise, which is initially aimed at domestic and OPL laundries provides up to one month’s (or five wash cycles) protection against bacteria and germs on laundry, and uses the same antimicrobial technology proven to kill SARS-CoV-2 when sprayed on surfaces.

Working in washes as low as 30°C, the product reduces the spread of disease in fabrics while also eliminating odour-causing bacteria, keeping clothes and other laundry fresher, and safer, for longer. The company says that it has also had a lot of interest in the product from distributors to commercial laundries.

The laundry additive joins an antimicrobial cleaning spray and hand sanitiser launched by the biotech cleaning company this year alongside its professional antimicrobial coating treatments.  

The product uses the same antimicrobial technology proven to eliminate SARS-CoV-2 after 6 weeks on surfaces, as tested by two of the world’s leading laboratories. Significant trials have proven that the antimicrobial protection of just 50ml of the product per full load of domestic washing can protect for up to 1 month, keeping clothes and bedding smelling fresher for longer, but also massively reducing the risk of germs on clothing as the country opens up and people start mixing again.

Zonitise’s Antimicrobial Laundry Additive provides a constant barrier of protection on clothing, preventing germs from harbouring and being transmitted on fabrics, reducing the risk of disease being spread through bacteria on items such as clothing and bedding. A 500ml bottle of Zonitise’s Antimicrobial Laundry Additive is available at a launch price of £24.99 (normal price £35.99.

The Zonitise Antimicrobial Laundry Additive is hypoallergenic, non-bleaching, non-toxic, 100% free of perfumes and dyes, eco-friendly and suitable for any machine washable fabric. As well as being eco-friendly, it also kills bacteria at much lower temperatures compared to traditional washing (60 degrees Celsius plus is normally required to effectively kill germs), making it more energy efficient - but the unique point is that it continues to protect laundry in between washes.
