Berkshire Corporation announces EZ Bleach, a solid-form bleach alternative with proven claims against SARS-Cov-2, Covid-19


 GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. June 30, 2020— Berkshire Corporation is excited to announce the release of a new disinfectant product, EZ Bleach™. EZ Bleach™ is a solid-form, safer alternative to traditional bleach that is EPA-registered and included on List N, the EPA's index of products certified for use against SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19.


EZ Bleach™ comes in an easy-to-use, effervescent 5g tablet. When mixed in water, the product activates and develops into a solution of hypochlorous acid (HOCl), a chlorine disinfectant much more potent than traditional liquid bleach. The unique delivery of EZ Bleach™ allows for the precise preparation of various concentrations as needed for the intended application. The tablet form and its unique chemical composition, made up of NaDCC (sodium dichloro-s-triazinetrione) ensure a shelf-stability of three years, nearly triple that of traditional bleach products.


Upon activation, EZ Bleach's hypochlorous acid solution is at neutral pH, which effectively lowers the odor and corrosivity profile especially comparing to the caustic traditional liquid bleach. Hypochlorous acid also has heightened efficacy against micro-organisms than hypochlorite-based traditional bleach, therefore requires a fraction of concentration to deliver the desired benefits.  These traits, coupled with its convenient activation steps, make it an equally efficacious but safer alternative to traditional liquid bleach.


EZ Bleach™ has potential applications in many industries— including effective disinfection for pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities, food and beverage processing, and educational institutions. It is ideal for large scale applications and the concentration can be adjusted accordingly, per the dilution guidelines provided by Berkshire Corporation.


EZ Bleach™ has been proven effective against a broad range of microorganisms, including the coronavirus family, which has been the cause of the COVID-19 pandemic, and clostridium difficile, the spore-forming bacteria that cause CDI.
