Background: The emergence of Clostridium difficile as a major nosocomial pathogen points to the need for safe, effective, and fast-acting environmental sporicides for infection prevention and control. Available and fast-acting sporicides are generally corrosive and unsafe for both humans and the environment. Methods: We evaluated chlorine bleach (500 and 5000 ppm) and a gel containing 4.5% of accelerated hydrogen peroxide against the spores of C difficile and its surrogates Bacillus subtilis and Clostridium sporogenes with contact times of 1, 5, and 10 minutes at 20°C ± 2°C using a quantitative carrier test (QCT-2), which is a standard (ASTME2197) of American Society for Testing and Materials International. Results: The gel and the higher level of bleach inactivated ≥6-log10 of viable spores of all 3 types in 10 minutes but were unable to do so after 1 and 5 minutes. The lower level of bleach showed virtually no activity even after 10 minutes. The gel could keep the treated surface wet for the entire 10 minutes, whereas the bleach became visibly dry in approximately 4 minutes and needed reapplication. Conclusion: The gel, with no off-gassing and designed especially for use on toilet bowls to allow for the required dwell time on vertical surfaces with one application, is a potential alternative to high levels of bleach.

An aqueous disinfecting solution having a pH of from about 0.5 to about 6 and consisting essentially of: (i) hydrogen peroxide in a concentration of from about 0.05% w/w to about 8% w/w; (ii) at least one anionic surfactant chosen from C8 to C16 alkyl aryl sulfonic acids and alkali metal, ammonium, ethanolamine, calcium and magnesium salts thereof; sulfonated C12 to C22 carboxylic acids and alkali metal, ammonium, calcium and magnesium salts thereof; C6 to C22 alkyl diphenyl oxide sulfonic acids and alkali metal, ammonium, calcium and magnesium salts thereof; naphthalene sulfonic acids and alkali metal, ammonium, calcium and magnesium salts thereof; C8 to C22 alkyl sulfonic acids and alkali metal, ammonium, calcium and magnesium salts thereof; alkali metal, ammonium, calcium and magnesium C8 to C18 alkyl sulfates; alkyl or alkenyl esters or diesters of sulfosuccinic acids in which the alkyl or alkenyl groups independently contain from six to eighteen carbon atoms and alkali metal, ammonium, calcium and magnesium salts thereof; in a concentration of from about 0.02% w/w to about 8% w/w; and (iii) benzyl alcohol in a concentration of from about 0.1% w/w to about 10% w/w. Optionally, the solution may contain (iv) at least one carboxylic acid chosen from monocarboxylic acids and polycarboxylic acids, in a concentration of from about 0.05% w/w to about 4% % w/w. The solution may also contain an alcohol comprising one to six carbon atoms in a concentration of from about 0.1% w/w to about 10% w/w % w/w of the solution.
