*Halamid (1-10%) solution will remain stable for weeks if kept out of direct sunlight. Stability is also dependent on pH,
which should remain above 7 to guarantee stability. A 1% solution of Halamid in demineralised water normally has a pH of 9.

General disinfection rules
Always remember that cleaning is a required preliminary step before disinfection, to ensure the best results. Without proper cleaning, dirt and organic matter protect microorganisms against the killing effect of the disinfectant, resulting in an incomplete operation.
Start by cleaning the area while dry, to remove most of the organic matter, followed by cleaning with water or a detergent solution. Then, disinfect with Halamid.
Halamid is always applied as an aqueous solution: simply dissolve the Halamid in clean water at the required concentration.
