The product is made by Dettol and is an Antiseptic wash which contains benzalkonium chloride (an antiseptic). The wash is ready to use and is especially designed to wash out wounds and helps to prevent infection of minor wounds. The spray bottle means that the product is a convenient no touch application. I actually purchased this for myself but was so impress with the product that I decided to buy it on a regular basis to keep in the medicine cupboard at home. Having 2 young nephews, I knew I would get some use out of this product. The spray has a gentle cleansing formula which can be used on cuts, grazes, minor wounds and skin piercings, insect bites and stings, small buns and scalds and blisters. The spray is literally suitable for every kind of accident. The antiseptic wash comes in a flattish bottle which is a light white colour. You can see that the liquid in the bottle is clear and quite runny, and looks just like water in the bottle. It has a spray nozzle which is white in colour and presses down easily to dispense some of the liquid. The spray nozzle is then protected by a clear plastic cap which keeps the nozzle clean. On the front it has the Dettol label and you can clearly see from the description on the front what the product actually is. On the back of the product is some information about the product such as how to use it and precaution information. As with any other medicines it's best to read through all the information before attempting to use it. I purchased this from Boots and it cost me £3.29 for a 100ml bottle. You may also find this product to buy in Superdrug, local chemists and supermarkets.
Using the Product
= = = = = = = =
I first use this product when I got my belly button pierced, as it started to look slightly infected and was very sore. This was the best product I could see as it was a no touch, spray application which was easier and more convenient for me as touching the area hurt. I used the spray twice a day and turned the belly ring to help clean the area around it and the actual hole in which the ring went through. This was a little sore at first but the spray actually made moving the ring easier as it helps loosen some of the skin stuck to it. I used some clean kitchen towel to soak up any of the excess liquid form the product. I point blankly refused to take the piercing out even though it didn't look particularly nice; I didn't go through the pain of having it done for nothing! Within a few days my belly button started to look less red and it didn't look as crusty as it had done before (yup, gross I know). Within about a week and a half my belly button looked normal (apart from a ring through it) and the infection had cleared up and gone away. The spray has also been used on my nephew's knees and elbows when he has fallen and grazed these areas. This does a brilliant job of cleaning the area which helps to stop any infection from occurring. The spray does have a an antiseptic type smell to it which is expected how-ever this isn't that strong and the smell doesn't bother me or my nephews when I have to use the product on them. Although the spray does have an expiry date we normally use over half of the bottle by the time the expiry date has actually come.

I have been buying this spray regularly for at least 5 years and I think it's fantastic and really easy to use. The spray bottle means it's convenient and great for popping into a mall first aid kit which you can carry with you. I actually carry a bottle of this in my rucksack along with a small first aid kit when me and my boyfriend go on long bike rides which we do a lot during the summer. The cap of the bottle does tend to come off sometimes, how-ever the product doesn't leak which is good. The spray doesn't smell as bad as some antiseptic products do I the smell doesn't linger and tends to disappear shortly after application and soaking up any excess liquid with a tissue. I would highly recommend this product to others as it did a fantastic job of helping to clean up my slightly infection belly button piercing and it also does a great job of cleaning small grazes and cuts which my nephews have obtained from falling over. I can't find any faults with this product so I give it a full 5 stars.
