WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN F10SCXD DISINFECTANT CLEANSER AND F10SC DISINFECTANT?
F10SCXD is a disinfectant cleanser, and the added detergent means you can clean and disinfect in a single step. F10SC is just a disinfectant.
F10SCXD helps by removing the organic matter allowing the disinfectant to act against the pathogens with less interference. F10SC works better on clean surfaces, but has the advantage that it can be left to air dry without leaving a soapy residue.
There are therefore situations where F10SCXD or F10SC may be more appropriate than the other for the task you are undertaking. More information is available in the video below.
WHICH SHOULD I CHOOSE? CLXD OR SCXD?
Whichever you are more comfortable using, as the end result will be the same. Some feel the CLXD is better for them as you need to be less precise with the measuring (for general disinfection you would use 10ml in 1 litre of water, whereas you would only use 2ml of SCXD in 1 litre of water). Where as others prefer the smaller bottle of the SCXD.
