The HAI environment is constantly evolving, and Clorox Healthcare® Bleach Germicidal Cleaners are designed to kill a broad range of pathogens including:

  • C. difficile spores (3 min)
  • MDROs such as Acinetobacter baumannii, Enterobacter aerogenes, VRE and MRSA (1 min)
  • Emerging/re-emerging pathogens such as SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV, Enterovirus D68 and Measles Virus

Clorox Healthcare® Bleach Germicidal Cleaners are premixed, ready to use and similar to the 1:10 bleach solution strength that is recommended by CDC guidelines for effective disinfecting. Clorox Healthcare® Bleach Germicidal Cleaners contain an anticorrosive ingredient that makes them less damaging to surfaces or equipment than conventionally prepared bleach solutions.


Versatile, Ready-to-Use Cleaner Disinfectants

Compared to the CDC-recommendation of a 1:10 bleach solution for controlling infection-causing pathogens, Clorox Healthcare® products are more convenient to use and remain stable for up to 18 months after original manufacture date.

Cleaner disinfectant in one step:

The detergent and anticorrosive ingredients of Clorox Healthcare® disinfecting products make them excellent cleaner disinfectants for use on hard, nonporous surfaces such as chrome, enamel, fiberglass (sealed) surfaces, Formica®, glass, glazed ceramic tile, laminated surfaces, plastic, stainless steel and vinyl. For best results, apply the cleaning solution directly to the surface until it is completely wet for the contact time indicated on the label.

For unfamiliar surfaces, test in a small, inconspicuous area first. Consult medical equipment warranty information and equipment care and cleaning guides prior to selecting and using any surface disinfectant on plastic surfaces.


Unlike bleach and water solutions, Clorox Healthcare® Bleach Germicidal Cleaner contains detergent, so it cleans and disinfects in just one step. Additionally, because it is premixed, ready to use, and stable, it eliminates the labor costs associated with mixing and labeling bleach solutions.
