ACT Fabric Protect

Washing cleaner then clean

Whether it is in the hotel or healthcare industry, caring for people is a hands-on job. Mops, cloths and other equipment pose a serious risk of cross-contamination. Studies have shown that even the iconic “doctor’s white coat” is a potential germ magnet.

Sadly, washing with regular laundry detergents does little in the fight against harmful microbes. Freshly washed sheets might look clean, but the risk of contamination returns within minutes.

That is why ACT.Global has developed ACT Fabric Protect: a laundry additive that offers the highest possible level of protection, making clothing, bedding and other fabrics self-disinfecting for at least 10 days.

Introducing ACT Fabric Protect

ACT Fabric Protect is an effective laundry additive that kills and inhibits growth of microbes during and after washing. It makes clothes, linens, mops and other fabrics self-disinfecting

Used for textiles in the hotel or healthcare industry. It provides effective protection for patients, medical staff and hotel guests.

Wash your microfiber and floorcloths with ACT Fabric Protect for an antibacterial result.
