Quick & Easy Ways to Sanitize Toys Without Toxic Chemicals!

Busy moms are always looking for ways to keep their kids toys clean without a fuss, and more and more are becoming leery of the chemicals used in commercial wipes and disinfecting sprays.

Here we discuss two quick and easy ways to sanitize virtually any object–not just toys–without the use of toxic chemicals:

Chansonmiraclesanitizerforsanitizingtoys1. Dry “air” method using the Chanson Miracle Sanitizer

Have something you can’t (or don’t want to) get wet? Just pop it in a re-sealable bag along with the bubble stone of the Chanson Miracle Sanitizer, switch the machine on and let it run for 10 minutes. The Sanitizer dispels safe levels of activated oxygen (O3) which has disinfecting properties. It doesn’t get any easier than that! Click here for a short demo.

The byproduct of a Chanson Water Ionizer* is the low pH acidic water which has been 3rd party lab verified to disinfect on contact. The water ionizer uses electrolysis to transform ordinary tap water into a hypochlorous acid solution that is completely non-toxic and so safe you don’t even need to wear gloves when using, although we don’t recommend drinking it so keep it away from the kiddos. You can create this water for pennies on the gallon and it will keep for up to 90 days. Simply add to a dark colored spray bottle, spritz on the item, and wipe with a soft cloth. Store bottle away from heat and light for best results.

*Note that not all ionizers will make such a low pH or with any water source. We recommend the M.A.X., Royale, or–for those needing light duty commercial applications–The Revolution.

The effect of acidic ionized water on airborne bacteria

Chanson acidic water has been 3rd party lab tested and found to disinfect on contact when made at 2.7 pH. Most water ionizers on the market cannot make such low pH water. Other studies found that acidic electrolyzed water has been proven to reduce pathogens on vegetables, eggs, poultry, and pork (Koseki et al., 2004; Russell, 2003; Park et al., 2002; Kim et al., 2005; Fabrizio and Cutter, 2005).

In a 2013 study titled “Airborne bacterial reduction by spraying slightly acidic electrolyzed water in a laying-hen house,”  researchers tested the effects of 6.0-6.5 pH acidic electrolyzed water on airborne bacteria in hen houses. The reason they tested higher pH levels was because they were concerned that repeated use of 2.7 pH water could cause corrosion to farm equipment, so they wanted to see how effective a less acidic solution would be.

Results suggested that spraying even the slightly acidic water was more effective than spraying diluted didecyl dimethyl ammonium bromide (DDAB), which is what is commonly used and has found to be hazardous to the skin, eyes, and respiratory tracts.

Ionized acidic or elecytrolyzed water is safe to spray directly on human skin and in the eyes and there are no known side effects, making it a great alternative to commercial disinfectants which are loaded with cancer-causing chemicals and irritants.

Ionized Acidic Water and Ebola

As you may have already heard, Ebola can survive on dry surfaces such as doorknobs and shopping cart handles for several hours.

So as the world waits for an Ebola vaccine (which will no doubt contain toxic chemicals that acidify the body), what are we to do to reduce our risk of contamination?

The CDC’s advice boils down to this: frequent hand washing.

We have not tested our water against the Ebola virus because, as crazy as it sounds, the Ebola virus has been patented by the U.S. government. As such, it would be illegal for us to do scientific testing on Ebola without express written permission. Permission we’ll never get, because the FDA regulates that only a drug can treat, cure, mitigate, or prevent a disease.

HOWEVER, Chanson ionized acidic water  (aka “electrolyzed water”) has been 3rd party lab tested to disinfect E.coli and staph bacteria on contact when made at 2.7 pH. Most ionizer brands cannot make acidic or electrolyzed water that strong. And while we have not paid for HIV testing due to the expense, electrolyzed waster has been tested by other labs and been found to kill HIV in less than 60 seconds.

Ionized acidic water (aka “electrolyzed water”) is an all-natural, non-toxic Hypochlorous acid solution rich in oxidizing H+ ions that is safe and beneficial for skin care purposes as well as disinfecting. In fact, it’s even replaced all-purpose cleaners in some hotel chains, and is safe enough to drink (although we don’t recommend it!)

Acidic water is produced by a water ionizer using nothing but electricity and tap water (and in some parts of the country, salt). For those that don’t have a water ionizer, we offer bottled ionized acidic water which will retain its strength for 30-90 days and makes a great hand and surface sanitizer due to its portability and fine mist spray nozzle.

Why not just use traditional hand sanitizer? Alcohol-based hand sanitizers are full of triclosan, parabens, and synthetic fragrances, all which have been shown to have negative health effects and may be carcinogenic.

So while we can’t make any health claims with regards to our water and Ebola, you can bet we’ll be spritzing public surfaces and washing our hands with Chanson ionized acidic water instead of neutral pH tap water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

Applications of Ionized Acid Water: Body, Skin & Hair

 

Your body is constantly struggling to achieve alkaline-acid balance, just like it must always be regulating its temperature. Your blood must remain slightly alkaline at 7.365 pH 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in order to survive.

When we continuously consume acidic food and drinks, our body has to compensate by borrowing alkaline minerals from places like our eyes, bones and teeth in order to combat the acidity (and thus prevent death).

A healthy body is slightly alkaline on the inside and slightly acidic (to fight off viruses and bacteria) on the outside. But most people are struggling with an overacidic internal environment, and overly alkaline skin. An overacidic internal environment can lead to weight gain and diseases of all kinds, while overly alkaline skin may reveal itself in the form of pimples, fungus, skin conditions like rashes, etc.

One solution is to drink ionized alkaline water and eat more alkaline foods (vegetables, non-sweet fruits, nuts and seeds) which will help combat the internal acidity and naturally help correct the external problem. Another solution for the skin, body and hair is to topically apply ionized acid water in order to achieve alkaline-acid balance externally. You can get both types of ionized water (alkaline and acid) from a water ionizer for pennies on the gallon.

Ionized acid water with a pH of 5.5 is a natural astringent with antibacterial properties that can also reduce inflammation. The Japanese refer to it as “beauty water” because it is so beneficial for the skin, and those who wash with it tend to look younger and healthier than those who using ordinary tap water or even expensive beauty products.

Here are some of the many applications of ionized acid water on the body, skin and hair:

Skin

  • Skin toner, anti-aging serum, wrinkle reducer
  • Blemish reducer, scars, sunburns, ingrown nails/hairs
  • Hand sanitizer, aftershave
  • Skin rashes/irritations
  • Dry/chapped skin, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, ringworm

Hair

  • Conditioner
  • Dandruff relief
  • Detangler
  • Rinse
Personal Deodorizer/Disinfectant
  • Deodorant/antiperspirant, athletes foot, jock itch, toe fungus
  • Mouthwash, gargle for sore throat, toothpaste, canker sores/cold sores
  • Female yeast conditions and other female issues, enemas
  • Add to a sick child’s bathwater to kill germs and viruses
  • Try for pink eye, ear infections, or snorting for nasal congestion and sinus relief

First Aid

  • Burns
  • Minor cuts and scrapes
  • Boils, blisters, bedsores
  • Bug bites, poison ivy

Ionized acid water is an eco-friendly, budget-friendly, multipurpose fluid that can save you hundreds a year on skin, body and hair products. Invest in a water ionizer today, and start enjoying the many benefits of ionized acid water for beauty and body care.
