A germ-free home means a healthier you!
Nurturing your body from the inside out will prove futile if your surroundings are toxic. Since we’re living in seemingly germier times than ever, Spring cleaning should be at the tippy TOP of your to-do list. At the very top of your shopping list – alongside any necessary medication, extra dried goods and toilet paper – is where MICROBAN 24 should be!
While most disinfectants kill 99.9% of bacteria on contact, MICROBAN 24 uses a multi-layer protective shield that binds it’s bacteria-fighting ingredient to the surface, providing continuous antibacterial protection for 24 hours, even when the surface is touched or contacted multiple times. Translation – it kills the same germs as most effective disinfectants, but it lasts MUCH longer after it’s been sprayed and doesn’t just wear off when touched. Visit microban24.com for more information and details on where to buy.
