“For healthcare grade disinfection, the EPA has certain requirements….that you test against, and those lab reports, we showed 100% kill in one minute, which is actually really impressive, because most toxic products they use in hospitals for disinfectants take 10 minutes, have to be reapplied multiple times to stay wet for 10 minutes, and only have a 95% kill rate and still be approved by the EPA for healthcare grade disinfection.”  

Rayne Guest on Green Connections Radio podcast

How do you know your office or school or facility is truly free of COVID-19?  There are no 100% guarantees, but listen up for an environmentally-friendly disinfectant that the EPA says is 100% effective in one minute. It doesn’t even come in plastic jugs, so there’s no waste or contaminated containers going into landfill or the water supply.

Find out how it works, how it’s tested and how it compares to others out there, even in use in hospitals by listening to this enlightening and informative interview with Rayne Guest, CEO and Founder of R-Water, which makes this disinfectant, and Green Connections Radio host Joan Michelson.  

You’ll hear:

  • How their disinfectant works and why it’s 100% effective, according to the EPA.
  • Why hospitals prefer to use it, keeping their staffs safer and reducing ancillary infections.
  • Why it’s actually a device that makes the disinfectant in your own place, vs. being shipped in.
  • Her entrepreneurial journey and the power of paying attention and networking.
  • Plus career advice especially for women with an entrepreneurial bent…. and more.

“People should really take this time while they have more time to explore what really makes them tick. Because passionate people in the world make it turn and we need more of them out there…Do good by doing good, positive impact all the way around, socially, economically, environmentally, we need as many of you out there as we can get.”
