By using effective sanitizers, early block for transmission of pathogens is the effective way to prevent epidermic outbreaks. Here we developed a chlorine oxide bubbling type of sanitizing tablets and evaluated the disinfectant and sanitization effects. The sanitizers showed 99.999% of sanitization effect for Escherichia coli ATCC 10536 and Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 6538 strains for 5 min±10 sec on 20±1℃ in clean condition by dilution-neutralization method. It reduced more than 5 log10 cfu/ml of a legal permission standard of colony reduction. When a few used socks and underwear soaked for one hour in the 0.1% of the sanitizing tablets, no microorganisms were grown on CHROMagar plates. However, on CHROMagar plates of the no sanitizing tablets treated control, about 6.5×104 cfu/ml of Staphylococcus sp., Klebsiella sp. and Enterococus sp. were grown. Furthermore, the sanitizing tablets killed approximately 1.5x108 cfu/ml of E. coli BL21 in 5 minutes. Therefore, we concluded that the chlorine based bubbling type of sanitizing tablets satisfied the legal standard for the regulation of food and drug safety for disinfectants and sanitizers to pathogens and daily supplies.
