F10SC Cleaner FAQ

What F10 products do you sell? Are there others?

Right now we are only selling the F10SC Disinfectant product. While the entire F10 product line is popular and in use around the world, the only F10 product that has U.S. EPA clearance in the F10SC Disinfectant. Other F10 products include the F10SCXD Cleanser (disinfectant plus a surfactant for cleaning), F10 Antiseptic Liquid Soap, F10 Hand Gel and F10 Quick Wipes.

The next product to finish EPA registration should be the F10SCXD Cleanser. We will have it available as soon as possible. The EPA registration process is tedious and slow, it is largely a hurry up and wait situation, but that is out of our hands. The Health & Hygiene folks (F10 manufacturers) are getting it done as quickly as bureaucratically possible.

What are the suggested dilutions for the F10SC product?

General disinfection of hard surfaces: dilute 1:500 (2ml in 1 liter of water)
High level disinfection (hospital grade): dilute 1:250 (4ml in 1 liter of water)
For the most resistant: dilute 1:125 (8ml in 1 liter of water)

At Reptile Basics, we use the 1:500 dilution around the facility and for the reptile caging. Keep in mind that these dilutions are noted as per 1 liter spray bottles. If you are using the common 24 ounce spray bottle, you need 30% less F10SC concentrate per bottle. 1 liter equals approximately 34 ounces.

I’ve read online that F10SC can be used for nebulization with animals directly, and also within rooms, can I get more info on that?

There are any number of accounts and discussions online of nebulization use of the F10SC product. At this time, that usage is not U.S. EPA approved nor included on the label.
