February 1, 2012

HARTFORD, CT — Spray Nine has announced three new germ kill claims that have dramatically expanded the namesake cleaner/disinfectant''s overall germ coverage and fast sanitizing and disinfectant capabilities, according to a press release.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has claimed that Spray Nine safely kills Poliovirus Type I, a type of polio, in only 30 seconds, along with a broad spectrum of other viruses, the release stated.

According to the release, it is also effective against Bordetella Pertussis, also known as whooping cough, and Listeria Monocytogenes, which is associated with food poisoning, killing both in just 45 seconds.

"With flu season here, Spray Nine can be a very effective first line of defense against flu viruses and other bacteria. Spray Nine is ideal for this type of application because it disinfects in only 45 seconds, while other disinfectants may require anywhere from five to 10 minutes of surface contact in order to be effective," said Cary Zelich, market manager.
