PathoClean Cleaner and Degreaser
(Sodium Hydroxide Solution)

Better cleaning requires a two step approach: clean first, disinfect second. Independent testing has proven this. At less than 400 parts per million of sodium hydroxide (NaOH), PathoClean successfully replaces caustic chemicals containing over 4,000 parts per million of NaOH. PathoClean can be used for surface cleaning and biofilm removal, the first step of effective cleaning.

PathoClean cleans as good, or better than some of the most recognizable brands in cleaning.  And, just one solution can take the place of four or more different cleaners.

For Best Results, Use PathoClean Followed by PathoCide

The best combination by far is to clean first, disinfect second, and independent testing bears that out. PathoClean followed by PathoCide netted a greater-than-six-log reduction of Norovirus, MRSA, Salmonella, and E. coli. Protocol is based on ASTM E2111-00 “Standard Quantitative Carrier Test Method to Evaluate the Bactericidal, Fungicidal, Mycobactericidal and Sporicidal Potencies of Liquid Chemical Germicides.”


“The product is non-toxic to humans. It is made without carcinogens of any kind. The product has been tested to product performance requirements. So when you see the Green Seal on the packaging, not only are you getting a product that you know has been formulated according to the Green Seal requirements, you are also getting a product that works.”

Mark Stanland, Vice President of Client Services, Green Seal

“With PathoSans, we have reduced our need to train our staff on which chemicals can be combined and which chemicals can be used where. Plus, we don’t have as many truck deliveries as we did before. We use only these two products in cleaning our facility at this time.”

Mike Fitzgerald, General Manager, MIT Endicott House

“In my 20 years of facilities operations, the PathoSans system is the best cleaning solution I have ever used. PathoSans is environmentally responsible, less expensive than purchasing bottles, drums or chemical mixing stations and very user friendly. The staff loves it and the building is by far the cleanest I’ve worked in.”

Sean Langer, Director of Operations, KFC Yum Center

“Knowing it was not going to harm our housekeepers using the products day-in and day-out was vital.”
