Disinfectants are a must in every home, hospital, office and so on. It helps fight germs in toilets and on surfaces. Disinfectants come in different brand names such as Izal Germicide, Z Germicide and so on.
In a very short production process I am going to show you how to manufacture your own disinfectant for use in your toilet or for sale.
Let us now consider the ingredients, functions, quantity required, cost and image of the chemicals we are going to use in the production of the disinfectant.
Note: All prices could have changed and might vary depending on the market.
This chemical process is a very dangerous one and caution must be exercised when dealing with the chemicals. You need safety goggles, gloves, mixing bowls, measuring cup and cans and rags in the production process.
Here is the step by step process:
Add the texapon, phenol and pine oil together without adding water. Mix properly to form a solution.
Add two litres of water into the solution to suppress the strength of the phenol.
Add the other chemicals one after the other into the solution.
Dilute the carboxylic acid and add to the solution and mix gently for one minute or two. At this point your disinfectant is ready.
Package in empty plastics containers with flip top or screw top (these are available in the market sold for N20 to N50 (100ml and above)).
If you intend selling the disinfectant ensure your packaging is neat and attractive. Embark good marketing strategies to be able to sell more quantity. Read my marketing post for more.
