Using test strips to measure dilution

When diluting Rescue™ Concentrate manually or using an automatic dispensing system, test strips should be used to guarantee that the mix has been made properly, or to alert when possible contamination has occurred.

The required test strips for use with Rescue™ Concentrate are called Precise Test Strips. Here is a sheet that can be printed for your facility with step by step instructions on how to use the test strips: Precise Test Strip Protocol Sheet

Please keep in mind that topping up bottles or buckets with fresh solution is not recommended. If more product is required than is in the bottle or mop bucket, the solution should be disposed of, the bottle or bucket should be rinsed with clean water, and fresh solution should be diluted into the bottle or bucket. Mixing old product with new product can affect the stability over time.

Once diluted into a sealed spray bottle, Rescue™ Disinfectants have a shelf life of 90 days. After the product has been tested and diluted into the secondary spray bottle, there is no need to test the product on a daily basis to ensure efficacy, however please make sure that the secondary bottles are labelled with the appropriate workplace compliant labels, noting the expiry date so that the user knows the specific date of expiry for that product.
