Product description Brand name and product description

Kinnos Highlight colorized bleach additive can be combined with standard bleach disinfectants to enable real-time visual colorization so healthcare workers can see exactly what surfaces they have covered to aid in the disinfection process. The color then fades to colorless after a few minutes to prevent staining. Peer-reviewed studies have demonstrated quantifiable improvements in disinfection technique and that the additive is safe to use.
