These convenient tablets eliminate the handling and storage of bulky sanitizers. They end guesswork in measuring and prevent loss from breakage, spillage or waste. The tablets dissolve in water producing a distinct, clear, pale blue sanitizing solution that tells operators and inspectors at a glance that this sanitizer is in the final rinse sink. Sanitizing solutions are long-lasting and usually remain effective all day. All of these advantages are available at an economical cost of only pennies per gallon.
  • Sanitizes food contact surfaces and equipment in restaurants, bars, daycare centers, gyms, assisted-living facilities, schools and more
  • Kills CA-MRSA, Escherichia coli, HIV-1(Aids Virus), Listeria monocytogenes, Staphylococcus aureus
  • Use 1 tablet per 1 gallon of water
  • Premeasured and easy to use

Also interesting to note that Steramine is that approved by the EPA and accepted by the USDA as a safe and effective sanitizer for glassware, countertops, tables, utensils, beverage equipment, frozen dessert machines, scuba equipment
according to this source :https://oceanicventures.com/steramine-sanitizer/
It's great stuff when used for its intended purposes. I use it cleaning some of my homebrew supplies (not all, need sterilizer for some of it) and some my own scuba equipment. Wouldn't be surprised if this is the stuff teachers dunk the plastic recorders into in grade school music class.

For those who don't know..
This is effective against bacteria and one virus which is hiv.

Also you should not use this in interior part of appliances,utensils or glasswares.

You should not use this as regular sanitizer.

If you want sanitizer, mix glycerin and alcohol,simple Google will show you how.
please provide a link to backup your statement.

I wish slickdeals would start banning people for turning deal posts into politics. See this crap all day everywhere else, don't need to see it here too.

thats the liquid. this sd is for the tablet.
not saying it won't work, just that nobody has done any testing of anything virally similar.

Liquid quaternary ammonium is approved by NY EPA in double to triple strength, but not tablet. Tablet form is EPA reg 1561-11.

edit: seems Federal EPA has approved quite a few brands since last I looked. But all use pre-mixed or liquid forms. Dry/tablet forms are NOT approved anywhere. The approved list is below. You can do a search for Steramine or Quatenary Ammonium to see what specifically is recognized. It's not terribly organized if you're looking for particular products, but it'll get you there. Tablet doesn't maintain it's chemical efficacy on the tough stuff anywhere near as well as liquid does, which is why it's not on.

that comment is only kinda true (blanket statement about tablet forms) for example, virkon is only sold dry as a tablet or powder form.
I made. call to lanxess about virkon. they said it was supposed to be added to the list a few months ago. it is specifically listed by brand for emerging zoological pathogens and viral outbreaks in farming operations. its basically a oxidizer ( like bleach) but in a buffered solution ( like pool shock) so that organics don't reduce its efficacy.
its popularity is more limited because it can be corrosive to metals, has to be mixed fresh (once mixed it has a 7 day life).bleach and water solutions are to be mixed fresh daily.
in any dilutables, tests must be done to ensure efficacy, just as you would use pool test strips to determine the free chlorine. Thats why things like lysol spray are so popular. Its mindless, just spray.

Quat based ones need a final rinse if going over (i forget what number) ppm if having food contact, such as dishes and cutting boards . I believe for full virualcidal claims requires like 625ppm or 512ppm.. i can't remember... there are literally dozens of quat formulations, little tweaks here and there.

most people forget they are supposed to wash their hands after using lysol wipes.

shoes are also a major contributor to the transmission of covid19. If the 6 foot rule is to be believed, then droplets fall to the floor. When it falls to the floor, your shoes will track it from room to room. Or your car. Summer time Temps were enough th kill it in your car. now that fall is around the corner.... who knows.
Also, wherever you wear your shoes into your home... that are needs special attention. It should be mopped daily. dirt provides hiding spots.

A lot of good info there. There are always exceptions to a blanket statement, except to the exceptions rule lol.

The alternative formulations point is good and why we need the big list of which are approved & which aren't. Too many variations for the average person to know which will work. Like the ethanol & methanol sanitizer lists - some work, some don't, some have side effects, but the average person won't understand the nuances & just see "sanitizer". It also a important to note that the Steramine 1-G formulation is a single specific formulation of quat. It also happens that that specific formulation isn't approved at this time. Maybe because the approval process is slow, maybe because of a short effective life for this usage, maybe because the average joe isn't going to mix & use it when still effective so will cause more harm than good to put it on the list, or maybe because this formulation just doesn't work well enough.

"Quants" like these are a great thing to have around, especially if we end up with shortages of other products. Be cautious with these though because they can cause some allergic skin reactions and even small amounts can trigger asthma. More info:

Not true at all that it's a "major contributor." Studies have shown that surface contact transmission is not really something to worry about compared to breathing it in, especially not from tracking on your shoes.
