Are OXY WHITE, TENSIO FREE SANY, OXY COLOR products containing hypochlorite and hydrogen peroxide disinfectants?
OXY WHITE and TENSIO FREE SANY are cleansing and hygienising products made with sodium hypochlorite, commonly called “bleach”, whereas OXY COLOR is a product made with hydrogen peroxide. This is why we recommend these products for hygienising laundry and the surfaces of the house such as floors, tiles, bathroom fixtures and handles. In fact, the products ensure a hygienising action, promoting the elimination of germs and bacteria, ideal for deep cleaning of fabrics and surfaces. Should you need disinfectants, we recommend the use of specific products.
Does OXY WHITE also have a fading and hygienising action like bleach, but does not clean?
No, besides being a bleacher, OXY WHITE is also a detergent. Therefore, in addition to removing stains and making your laundry bright white, it also cleanses, as opposed to bleach, which is instead used together with a classic detergent. When using OXY WHITE, you don’t need to buy two separate products since the same product has a dual effect: as a detergent and whitener.
Is it possible to use OXY WHITE, TENSIO FREE SANY and OXY COLOR diluted with water to wash and disinfect hands?
OXY WHITE is a hygienising product made with hypochlorite, which is recommended for deep cleaning of fabrics and surfaces. This is why we recommend this product for hygienising laundry and the surfaces of the house such as floors, tiles, bathroom fixtures and handles. For skin or hand hygienising, we advise you to refer to specific products intended for this purpose, such as our IDRA SANY rinse-free hygienising gel containing 70% alcohol or the liquid hygienising soap SOAP SANY.
PLEASE NOTE: we understand the emergency situation we are currently experiencing and the difficulty in finding disinfectants, but it is not possible to recommend a different use of our products. OXY WHITE is, in fact, formulated to be a hygienising product specifically designed for fabrics and surfaces. TENSIO FREE SANY is intended for washable surfaces.
Since it is difficult to find disinfectants in supermarkets, is it possible to dilute OXY WHITE and TENSIO FREE SANY for hygienising surfaces during this health emergency crisis?

Is it possible to use OXY WHITE for hygienising clothes worn daily in order to clean them and eliminate germs and bacteria?
OXY WHITE is ideal for deep cleaning of your entire laundry and whites that can benefit from a hygienising action. As follows:
– Automatic dosing: add to the first rinse cycle of the washing cycle and leave in for 7-10 minutes.
– Doses for a household washing machine: 40 – 80 ml (1/2-1 cap, 1 dosing cap = 80 ml) every 5-10 kg of laundry before the washing powder/liquid.
– Doses for washing by hand: 40 – 80 ml (1/2-1 cap, 1 dosing cap = 80 ml) and leave to soak for 20-30 minutes without adding any washing powder/liquid. Rinse thoroughly.
Please also note that:
– for optimal cleaning and hygiene of your laundry, remember not to overload the washing machine with too much laundry.
– in addition to washing, the product removes stains, brightens whites, hygienising whites such as sheets, towels, underwear, cotton tea towels, white coats, etc.
– the product can be poured into the dispenser designated for bleach, filling to the level indicated. If the dedicated compartment is not available and you do not want to use other additives (e.g. softener), you can use the compartment dedicated to additives, filling it to the level indicated. Alternatively, start the pre-wash and while the water is running, pour at least 120 ml with every 5kg of laundry (1 ½ dosing cap) into the pre-wash dispenser. Then start the load.
– it is important to always follow the washing instructions on the labels.
Is OXY WHITE also suitable for hygienising coloured laundry?
No, OXY WHITE is only designed for whites. Hygienising coloured laundry is possible with OXY COLORS, which contains hydrogen peroxide.
Why isn’t hypochlorite always suitable?
Despite being an excellent hygienising agent, hypochlorite has bleaching properties. Furthermore, chlorine-based detergents cannot be used on all materials; the materials compatible with their use are, for example: stainless steel, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), poly acetate, polyoxymethylene (POM), Nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR), bisphenol-A polyester, fibreglass, polytetrafluoroethylene (Teflon), silicone (SI), Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS), Polycarbonate (PC) polysulfone, titanium. For this reason, other hygienising products such as hydrogen peroxide and/or hygienising surfactant detergents are used in products intended for other uses such as the cleaning of special and delicate surfaces and the hygienising of coloured items.
Why do products containing hypochlorite have a strange smell and colour?
Sodium hypochlorite is the classic compound of bleach with its classical yellowish colour and very strong characteristic smell.
