On-Site Generated Electrolyzed Water

EWCO Sanitizer Label

Hotel Sanitation

Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water can replace quaternary ammonium (Quats), chlorine bleach, and chemicals used to sanitize hotels.

Sanitizing Hotel Rooms

Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water can be used to sanitize and deodorize all contact surfaces in a hotel room.
Sanitizing Linens
Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water is gentle on linens. It does not alter colors, corrode fabrics, or leave any residuals that cause itching or irritation.

Sanitizing Hands

Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water is safe and non-irritant and can be used by employees for hand sanitation.

Floors and Bathroom Sanitation
Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water can be used to sanitize contact surfaces, equipment, floors and bathrooms. It does not cause discoloration of floors as seen with chlorine bleach.

Fogging with Electrolyzed Water

Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water can be applied broadly using foggers to sanitize and deodorize hotel rooms.

On-Site and On-Demand

EWCO systems are compact and easy to install. Systems are designed to generate Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water on-site and on-demand from an additive made yourself with just table salt and water.

What is Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water?

Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water is electrolytically generated hypochlorous acid (HOCl), a neutral-to-acidic electrolyzed water. HOCl has been studied for over 100 years and it is an undeniable fact that it is a more powerful oxidant than chlorine bleach. Only within the last 30 years have we been able to generate solutions of near 100% HOCl in such a stable form. HOCl kills bacteria, bacterial spores, and viruses 100 times more effectively than chlorine bleach.

How does it work?

Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water is a powerful oxidant (800 to 1000 mV) that can kill microbial pathogens immediately upon contact by damaging cell walls or inactivate the pathogen by entering and disrupting proteins, lipids, and DNA.

Has it been researched?

Research Publications

In the last 30 years we have collected over 300 published research articles supporting the use of Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water. Nearly every common bacterial pathogen has been studied such as E. coli, Salmonella, Listeria, Vibrio, Staphylococcus, MRSA, spore forming bacteria, and many common viruses (including Norovirus) and fungi. To learn more please visit our research page and search by microbe or industry to find applicable research.

What about regulation from FDA, USDA, and EPA?

We have pages dedicated to the regulation of electrolyzed water as it pertains to the FDA, USDA, and EPA. Please visit our pages for more information. In regards to healthcare sanitation, see our page for the CDC.

Hotel Sanitation

Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water is an on-site generated eco-friendly sanitizer that can replace all chemicals used for cleaning and sanitizing hotel rooms, common areas, floors, and bathrooms.
Sanitizing Hotel Rooms
Direct Application and Fogging

Being that hypochlorous acid is stable in solution, it can be applied through many different methods. In addition to direct application through spray bottles and mops, it can be applied broadly using foggers. Fogging offers many advantages in that it can distribute EOW into a large area very quickly to sanitize and deodorize. Because EOW is so safe, no protective gear or equipment is required. Fogging can also reach areas that are often missed by direct application such as under tables, chairs, and crevices that cannot be reached.

Eliminating Chemicals

Eliminating chemicals in hotels saves time, space, and money. Chemicals require purchasing, transporting, storing, and preparation. EOW is on-site generated anolyte and requires minimal storage space. The only ingredients needed are salt, water, and electricity.

Sanitizing Contact Surfaces

Not only is EOW safe and all-natural, but it is more effective than the chemicals currently being used. EOW is a solution of mixed oxidants of which the primary oxidant is eletrolytically generated hypochlorous acid (HOCl), an antimicrobial that has been recognized by the CDC in their guidelines for disinfection and sterilization. Hypochlorous acid can be applied at concentrations as high as 200 ppm which effectively inactivates most bacteria and viruses in less than 1 minute.
Sanitizing Bathrooms
  • 100 times more biocidal than chlorine bleach
  • Instant-kill on most G+ and G- bacteria
  • Instant-kill on VRE, MRSA, and MRSE
  • Instant-kill on Mycobacterium tuberculosis
  • Effective against HIV, HBV, HCV, and CMV
  • No high temperatures are necessary
  • Most effective between 50-86 ºF (10-30 ºC)
  • Does not cause irritation, safe on eyes and skin
  • Does not cause corrosion of fabrics
  • Does not alter colors, pH neutral

Linen Sanitation

EWCO Sanitizer can replace harsh chemicals such as quaternary ammonium (quats) used commonly to sanitize linens. Quats can cause eye irritation and contact dermatitis. For about 5% of people, quats are an extreme sensitizer and can cause a variety of asthma-like symptoms. EWCO Sanitizer is non-irritant and does not cause any respiratory or asthma-like symptoms.

Employee Safety

Preparation of toxic concentrated chemicals can be a safety hazard for employees as they are respiratory and skin irritants. EWCO Cleaner & Sanitizer is 100% safe for employees. It does not require any special handling. It is non-irritant and does not require gloves or masks. It can be applied directly with rags and mops or broadly by fogging and pressure spraying.
