Disinfectant, Sanitizer, or Antiseptic

The actual difference between the terms disinfectant and sanitizer is largely a matter of legal definitions based on which government agency is regulating what industry.

A disinfectant refers to a chemical substance capable of thoroughly eliminating specific test organisms from inanimate surfaces within a 10-minute timeframe, as determined by the rigorous conditions of the AOAC Use Dilution Test. Among various sectors, the healthcare industry exhibits the utmost concern and keen interest in the effective use of disinfectants. In this regard, a diluted solution of sodium hypochlorite, often recognized as 'liquid bleach,' enjoys widespread usage as a disinfecting agent in healthcare settings as well as in everyday household scenarios. However, it's crucial to emphasize that bleach should never be employed for disinfecting breathing loops due to its inadequate compatibility with certain seal materials frequently employed in rebreathers and regulators.
A sanitizer is a chemical agent designed to diminish the population of microorganisms on inanimate surfaces to a level deemed safe. The effectiveness of sanitizers is measured by their ability to eliminate 99.999 percent of the specified test organisms within a brief span of 30 seconds, as assessed in accordance with the Weber & Black Test. Among various industries, the food service sector exhibits significant interest in sanitizers, primarily due to their rapid action and efficacy in maintaining hygiene standards.
Antiseptics are substances applied to living skin or tissue with the primary purpose of averting infection. However, when it comes to the task of cleansing rebreathers, antiseptics are not the ideal choice due to their diminished effectiveness in this specific application and potential issues related to compatibility with materials. Moreover, there are apprehensions about the safety implications associated with any antiseptic residue that might persist within a regulator's second stage or CCR breathing loop after the cleaning process.
