Clorpactin Wcs-90 Powder Directions
Add the powder to sterile or deionized or lukewarm water in a glass or plastic container at room temperature (20-25° C.). Stir or shake for several minutes. The powder will dissolve slowly in water. Therefore even after 2-3 minutes of stirring or mixing you will see some residue of the incompletely dissolved product. This residue consists of inactive ingredients and thus, there is no need to continue stirring or mixing for a longer period of time. You can remove this residue by either filtering the solution through a coarse laboratory filter or allow the solution to settle for nearly 5 minutes and then decanting the clear solution for use.
Always use the freshly prepared solution for irrigating the infected area as a rinse, soak or spray. Apply by irrigation, instillations, spray, soak or wet compresses, preferably thoroughly cleansing with gravity flow irrigation or syringe to provide abundant quantities of fresh solution to remove the organic wastes and debris from the site of the involvement.
Repeat applications with a fresh portion of the solution, or allow soaking for 20 to 30 minutes until symptoms disappear or are relieved.
