How Does It Work?
PermaSafe utilizes a duo cleaning process that perpetually keeps non-porous surfaces free of microorganisms for the extent of 90 days or more. Our unique process has been registered for use with the EPA. We have the highest class of safety and consciousness possible for an active pesticide — which lands us on the EPA’s “N” list for the best disinfectant available.
PRODUCT INFORMATION SHEET.
PermaSafe CLEAN™ (Step 1) is a powerful, proprietary, no-rinse, no-wipe, one-step, all-purpose “cleaner, deodorizer, disinfectant and anti-allergen” that is fogged onto a vehicle’s passenger cabin surfaces and throughout its HVAC system and trunk to sanitize, deodorize, disinfect and “prime” such areas for, and help ensure a permanent bond with, a subsequent application of PermaSafe SHIELD™.
PRODUCT INFORMATION SHEET.
PermaSafe SHIELD™ (Step 2) is an EPA approved Antimicrobial Surface Coating and Protectant that kills up to 99.99% of germs, bacteria, viruses, fungi, mold, and other harmful microbes that come in contact with it. What is most unique is it achieves these results solely through a patented physical or “mechanical” process, without the use of any chemicals.
Proven Safety Against COVID-19
FROM THE CDC
PermaSafe CLEAN, our EPA registered, Odor, Allergen, Mold and Fungi Eliminator, Hospital Grade Disinfectant, and “Step 1” of our two-step PermaSafe Disinfection and Long-Term Antimicrobial System is effective against viruses similar to COVID-19 and therefore can be used against COVID-19 when used as directed on hard, non-porous surfaces.

Lawsuit Against OxyCide (TM)
Since early 2013, when Ecolab first distributed its OxyCide Cleaning Products to over 500 hospitals nationwide, hospital workers have consistently and repeatedly reported serious physical injuries associated with the use of Ecolab’s OxyCide Cleaning Products. These included burning eyes, nose, and throat, nasal problems, cough, headache, dizziness, nausea, nose bleeds, asthma-like symptoms, respiratory irritation, skin burns, rashes and other reactions affecting their pulmonary and respiratory functions.
Injuries and Deaths From Using Defective Hand Sanitizer By Methanol Poisoning
The FDA clearly states that methanol is not an acceptable active ingredient for hand sanitizers. Further, methanol must not be used in hand sanitizer due to its toxic effects. The use of methanol hand sanitizers causes health issues including blindness, kidney failure, and death.
More Americans report chemical disinfectant poisoning during COVID-19 pandemic
Reports of chemical exposures to the National Poison Data System rose in early 2020 compared to the first quarter of 2019, likely a direct response to Americans cleaning more often and more thoroughly in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Nurse Sues Over Medical Issues Allegedly Caused by Hospital Disinfectant
A nurse at the Kaiser medical center in Baldwin Park is suing her employer and the maker of a hospital disinfectant she says has left her with breathing problems, headaches and nausea.
The allegations in Sheneka Brown’s Los Angeles Superior Court lawsuit include negligence, strict liability and both intentional and negligent misrepresentation. Named as defendants are The Permanente Medical Group, several other Kaiser entities and St. Paul, Minn.-based Ecolab Inc., manufacturer of the OxyCide one-step disinfectant
Disinfectant-Linked Poisoning Rises Amid COVID-19
A woman overcome by toxic fumes from her kitchen sink is rushed to the hospital; a toddler is treated in the ER after swallowing hand sanitizer. As Americans’ obsession with disinfecting their homes against COVID-19 rises, so are the number of poisoning emergencies like these, a new government report finds.
“Exposures to cleaners and disinfectants reported to NPDS [the National Poison Data System] increased substantially in early March 2020,” noted a team led by Dr. Arthur Chang, a researcher at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In fact, there’s been a more than 20% spike in the number of such poisoning emergencies reported to the NPDS, compared to the same time last year, the report found.
FDA's Full List of Dangerous Hand Sanitizers
The US Food and Drug Administration has expanded its warning about hand sanitizers to avoid, with the list now topping 100.
The agency first warned consumers in June about hand sanitizers containing methanol, which can be toxic when absorbed through the skin and potentially deadly if ingested. Since then, several such products have been recalled by manufacturers and pulled from store shelves.
Now, the FDA is also warning about hand sanitizers containing insufficient levels of alcohol.
