Development of non-toxic, low-cost, high-performing, disinfecting household gadget to prevent the spread of germs, viruses, bacteria, and fungus.

Objective

"The scientific term ""hygiene"" refers to the maintenance of health and healthy living. Our objective is to develop a low-cost household gadget (3E) that will generate an in-situ, ready-to-use, high performing, effective, and non-toxic disinfecting agent to reinforce the measures of keeping personal-hygiene at the highest level and helping in preventing the spread of diseases. 3E concept eliminates the need for using expensive, harsh, and toxic chemicals or alcohol-based personal disinfectant products. The gadget works only with tap water and table salt, Sodium chloride (NaCI), which can be found most probably in every house. The 3E gadget converts regular table salt and tap water into Neutral Electrolyzed Water to destroy infectious organisms. The electrolysis of salt produces a solution of hypochlorous acid (HOCI) and sodium hydroxide (NaOH). The resulting water can be used as a safe non-toxic disinfectant. The solution kills bacteria, microbes, and germs by 99,9%. The solution sterilizes, deodorizes, and purifies the air as well and is safe to use for delicate applications such as pets, kids’ toys, and food. 3E will sterilize and deodorize simply every surface and even clothes, carpets, furniture, and shoes. 3E gadget can be used at home, at the car, at the office, wherever sterilization and cleaning is needed. The expected outcomes of the project are increasing public health, reinforcing the prevention measures of the spread of germs, viruses, bacteria, and fungus, introducing a completely new, low-cost, safe household cleaning, a non-toxic disinfecting solution to end-users. Unlike conventional detergent and other disinfectant products, 3E solution can be used safely and easily on all surfaces, including food. The initial investment of buying the 3E gadget is returned in an average of 2 months and saves money throughout its lifetime."
