A necessity for your well-being and an accessory for your home, Dr. Clo’s Sterilization sticks finally make a very timely debut in Malaysia. And we’re more than overjoyed at its sight.
Dr. Yoo, the founder, and innovator of Dr. Clo delivered a groundbreaking device based on the sanitization effects of Chlorine Dioxide, (ClO2). His love for high technology combines with his love for years of experience as a skilled driver and a racer and someone who certainly does not want to touch another steering wheel filled with germs. Dr.Yoo is not the only one who wished for a better solution to disinfect the common areas surrounding us. In the wake of Covid 19, where touching surfaces seemed a little like a crime, and a little more frightening, we are in dire need of a product like Dr. Clo. Fortunately for us, Dr.Yoo was passionate about his fight for clean hygienic environments and providing us a solution using high-performance technology.
My first initial reaction to the Dr. Clo stick was filled with nothing but skepticism. The deodorizing stick looked a little too pretty and a little too simple for me to perceive it as effective, however, this cannot be far from the true reality of the product. This controlled-release deodorant that continuously enables to emit Chlorine dioxide is purposely made to safely eliminate all the bacteria and viruses that surround us. Understanding a little bit of the background and the technology is enough to grasp the concept and need of such a device. So let’s take a look at the science behind Dr.Yoo’s innovation!
What’s The Science Behind Dr. Clo?
This chlorine-based deodorant has wreaked havoc among many because of the coined use of chlorine in the deodorant stick. However, let’s take a deeper look at the ingredient in the stick. Dr. Clo does not necessarily use chlorine, but it uses chlorine dioxide. Chlorine dioxide is popularly used in many sanitization agencies and products for its ability to potentially suppress bacterial and viral spread and its infections. Chlorine dioxide is only considered harmful when you are exposed to limits that are way more than 0.1ppm and Dr. Clo only uses o.22 ppm which is less than what’s considered safe by the World health organization standards as well as US CDC guidelines.
Did you also know that chlorine dioxide is used in the treatment of our water? They are used in water to destroy any elements of bacteria and other harmful parasites and prevent its ingestion. Failure to do so might lead to harmful effects and the spread of diseases in the community. Medical environments such as labs and clinics consistently use Chlorine dioxide gas to keep their space safe and healthy.
Dr. Clo Perks And Functions
My first initial interest in the Dr. Clo stick came with the rise of the pandemic. I needed a disinfectant that was much better than a sanitizer in my backpack. Several news headlines made the noise that Dr. Clo stick was successfully effective at killing any traces of airborne Covid 19 and influenza A, during a test conducted at the Seoul National University. It is now registered with the FDA and approved by the Korean Ministry of Environment for both commercial and personal use. Dr. Clo communicates its biggest selling point to be effective against bacteria and viruses, and disinfection and it has proven to be true for its customers.
As someone who commutes back and forth from work to and home even amidst the rising cases, I needed something that would keep me and my environment safe. Taking public transportation on a daily basis, shopping for groceries every now and then, working in close quarters with colleagues had me wondering, are we doing enough to protect ourselves against bacteria and viruses? I bought two different Dr. Clo sticks, one which was used for households and one for my vehicle. I made sure to keep the stick in a beautifully shaded area as the chlorine dioxide can easily lose its effectiveness with exposure to direct sunlight.
The Dr. Clo sticks are applicable for more than just my living room and my long trips to work and home. But it was also a perfect addition to my refrigerator, wardrobe, and bathroom. Mold inside the refrigerator has been responsible for the bad odor and deterioration of food in my fridge on more than one occasion. Similarly, there is the occasional musty smell in the wardrobes that comes from mold growth. Dr. Clo was effective at keeping my wardrobe and clothes smelling fresh. Meanwhile, it prolonged the freshness of my fruits and vegetables too! I also used it in my bathroom where much of the bacteria tend to hold, reside, and thrive. The results were just as promised! It kept my bathroom smelling fresh, removed the bad odor, and prevented the formation of molds.
Dr Clo stick is not only functional but it’s also the first of its kind to come in a gel-based formulation, that is completely odorless. Chlorine dioxide is known for its chemical-like strong smell that is somewhat irritating, even in its low and safe concentrations. However, it was incredibly surprising to see that the stick emit no chemical smell that affected me or my surroundings. The odorless ness made it perfect for children and even myself who is quite sensitive to the chlorine odor. Not only is it odorless, but it is free of carcinogens and made out of completely natural ingredients.
Speaking of natural, noncarcinogenic, and nontoxic deodorant is also known for it’s eco-friendliness and aesthetics. These are the very two things I like about all my products. Sustainability plays a crucial role in my daily life and if you are looking for better options to keep your home safe and musty-free, Dr. Clo sticks make the perfect addition. They come in so many different vibrant colors and they can also be accessorized around your neck. I tied it to my lanyard as I worked around my office space and believe me when I say, it certainly did not ruin my outfit.
