 Disinfectants / Cleaning Agents [1]


Disinfectants are substances that are applied to non-living objects to destroy microorganisms that are living on the objects.Disinfection does not necessarily kill all microorganisms, especially not resistant bacterial spores; it is less effective than sterilisation, which is an extreme physical and / or chemical process that kills all types of life.Disinfectants are different from other antimicrobial agents such as antibiotics, which destroy microorganisms within the body, and antiseptics, which destroy microorganisms on living tissue. Disinfectants are also different from biocides the latter are intended to destroy all forms of life, not just microorganisms.Sanitisers are substances that simultaneously both clean and disinfect.Bacterial endospores are most resistant to disinfectants, but some viruses and bacteria also possess some tolerance.Disinfectants are frequently used in hospitals, dental surgeries, kitchens, and bathrooms to kill infectious organisms.Cleaning Agents are substances, usually liquids, that are used to remove dirt, including dust, stains, bad smells and clutter on surfaces. Purposes of cleaning agents include health, beauty, absence of offensive odor, avoidance of shame, and to avoid the spreading of dirt and contaminants to oneself and others. Some cleaning agents can kill bacteria and clean at the same time.
