Hey Everyone

Anyone use Oxivir in their preschool environment? We are looking to switch from harsh chemicals and need something with short dwell time. We run several 3 hour preschools so we need something that will cover cleaning from food, overall wipe down of surfaces etc.

Thanks in advance for your feedback!

I use a Melaluca brand disinfectant called Sol-U-Guard Botanical disinfectant.  Killss 99% of bacteria and viruses on hard surfaces.  Natural.

I haven't heard of Oxivar but I'll have to research it. We use Purelle Sanitizer. The big selling factor for me was the 1 minute dwell time!

I've attached "Disinfectants Approved for Use in Child Care Facilities" from the Colorado Department of Public Health.  I know that many program locally use Oxivir.

We use Odoban.  It has a variety of uses, and we use it to clean our entire center.  It can be purchase at Home Depot as well as online and has many different scents.  I was shocked at how many uses it had.  We have loved it and are now nearly bleach free.

We have used oxivir for almost 10 years now.  It is completely safe with children.  It is now approved as a replacement to chlorine bleach (which is still accepted in Mississippi)

oxivir is is hydrogen peroxide.  Safe around children and pets.  We will never change.

​We use Oxivir for our Child Development Programs here I Modest.  It is safe and so much easier. You do not have to mix any of the solutions. Ready to use.
