Polygiene and HSP Hanse Shopping launches mass market cleaning products with ViralOff®

STOCKHOLM,  ( – comunicati stampa – varie)

The US CDC recommends (in the COVID-19 directives) that you clean surfaces first using soap and water, then use disinfectant. That means your wipes, dish towels and mops will have swept a not disinfected surface, so it is reasonable to disinfect them too. With Polygiene’s ViralOff treatment, these products will do that by themselves over a short time period.

“Studies have shown that viruses can live for days, even weeks, in textiles”, says Haymo Strubel, VP EMEA for Polygiene. “You wouldn’t clean a floor with a dirty mop, and you shouldn’t clean for viruses with a mop that still contains viruses from the last cleaning.”

The effectiveness of the protective treatment has been tested for SARS-CoV-2 and Influenza A according to ISO 18184:2019. The product range has also received certification from OEKO-TEX®: STANDARD 100. All articles are therefore tested for harmful substances and are harmless to health.

The partnership is exclusive for this category and market for a period of 24 months, with a minimum order value of 1 MUSD for Polygiene.

ViralOff protects treated fabrics from bacterial and viral contamination but does not protect against infection or disease.
