Not sure what’s right for your needs? Read on for some of the most frequently asked questions about BioCair, all answered below!
How do I keep my child safe outdoors with BioCair?
The BioCair Pocket Spray will come in handy when you’re out and about. Our pocket spray is portable and easy to use, which makes it convenient to bring along on the go.
It’s recommended to use it before and after an activity to ensure that all surfaces and objects are properly disinfected. For instance, you can use it to disinfect your children's toys and belongings before and after playtime.
To use, simply hold the bottle in an upright position and spritz it onto surfaces four to six inches (10-15cm) away. Within 60 seconds of contact, any traces of bacteria and germs will be eliminated in a jiffy. You don’t have to wipe the solution off after spraying, and no rinsing is required.
What are the differences between the Anti-Bacterial Disinfectant pocket spray (blue) and BioActive Anti-HFMD pocket spray (orange)?
For personal use, the Anti-Bacterial Disinfectant Pocket Spray will do the trick. It’s proven to kill 99.999% of everyday bacteria, germs, fungus and spores within 60 seconds. This helps to reduce the threat of common colds, E.coli, influenza, and other infections.
However, if you have a child under the age of 10 who spends most of their time in school, the BioActive Anti-HFMD Pocket Spray will be a better option. While both products are made with BC-65™ solution, this one is specifically developed with a stronger formulation to target hand foot and mouth disease (HFMD), which is caused by viruses such as Coxsackievirus A16 and Enterovirus 71.
HFMD is a common infection that typically affects young children, and spreads easily in large group settings such as schools and childcare centres. Using the BioActive Anti-HFMD will help to reduce the risk of transmission, and maintain a HFMD-free household for all.

It’s tested and proven to be 100% safe for use on children and newborns, even when inhaled or ingested.

How can BioCair help when there is an outbreak in school?
In the event of an outbreak of infectious diseases, schools (and other community settings) will be required to step up disinfection efforts. You, as a parent, can do your part to ensure your child’s safety. Taking extra steps to disinfect can help to reduce the amount of bacteria and germs, and lower the risk of infection in children – a highly vulnerable age group.
Besides keeping the pocket sprays handy, you can also make use of the Ultimate II 5.5L Dry-Mist Disinfection Machine to disinfect your home. Turn it on for an hour each day when your child gets home, and let the machine wipe out all the bacteria and germs that they might bring back from the outside. If you’re fetching your child from school, the Ultimate Dry-Mist Automobile Disinfecting Machine can also help to eliminate bacteria and keep the air in your car safe while you’re driving.
With BioCair, you can ensure that everyone stays safe, healthy and happy.
