Dettol liquid 5-litre

Bringing home disease-causing viruses- this may be our biggest concern since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. We have learned the importance of washing hands with soap and water, leaving the clothes we have worn in the laundry, and discarding used gloves, masks, and other protective gear. After coming home from crowded public places, traveling on public transport, or coming home from the office or school, it is a good idea to take a refreshing bath or a shower with an antiseptic solution.

The Dettol Antiseptic Liquid is a multipurpose antiseptic and disinfectant solution that is one of the most trusted products we use at home. From cleaning cuts, nicks, and wounds to disinfecting the laundry, cleaning the floor and surfaces to adding to the bathwater, the trusted Dettol liquid helps keeps germs off. Adding a Dettol 5-litre pack to your shopping cart each month is a very good way of keeping you and your family safe.

How does a Dettol bath help?

The two main ingredients of Dettol Antiseptic Liquid are Chloroxylenol (C8H9Clo) and Isopropyl Alcohol. Both of these are potent antimicrobials. Research suggests that Chloroxylenol is effective in killing viruses, bacteria, and fungi, while Isopropyl Alcohol prevents the growth of viruses and bacteria. Dettol liquid kills about 99.99% of disease-causing germs but is also mild enough to use on the skin. This means that while it is tough on germs, it is also gentle on the skin.

Using a bathtub may be relaxing, but the stagnant water also allows for the redeposition of bacteria and germs on the skin. This can be prevented by adding a trusted antiseptic solution to the bathwater. For example, a bath with Dettol liquid added can be very refreshing and act as a disinfectant.

Precautions to take 

  • One capful of Dettol in about 10 litres of water is the appropriate dilution for bath water.
  • Consult a paediatrician before adding Dettol to the bathwater of infants or very young children.
  • If you experience rashes or allergic symptoms, discontinue the use of Dettol liquid and consult a doctor.
  • Avoid contact with eyes or ingestion of Dettol liquid. In case of accidental contact, wash with plenty of water and contact a doctor.
  • Avoid using Dettol in your bathwater if you suffer from skin issues like eczema.

Other uses of Dettol antiseptic liquid 

  • The golden-brown Dettol antiseptic liquid is one of the most trusted solutions to clean wounds, cuts, and bruises. A 1:20 dilution is used to clean wounds.
