  • Absolute Alcohol – 70%
  • Glycerol – 50 ml
  • Mineral Oil – 10 ml
  • Hydrogen Peroxide – 3%

The bacterial inhibition test was performed with agar disc assay in the order check the efficacy of the sanitizers. The effect on bacterial killing was quite well inhibiting Gram positive as well as Gram negative bacteria. Finally, the solution added into the sprayed bottle and distributed.
