Morton GO Review
The Morton GO is the environmental answer to buying cheap plastic bottles of anti-bacterial hand sanitizer over and over. Over the last several years, we have become inundated with hand sanitizer. We see these little bottles everywhere. I have seen them in parks, in parking lots and in the gutters on local streets. Morton has created the answer to throwaway bottles with a reusable bottle that allows you to create your own non-toxic disinfectant with water and table salt that is 99.9% effective at killing germs.
How does the Morton GO work?
The Morton GO uses the creation of HOCI disinfectant all in a simple, small spray bottle. It takes only a small packet of table salt and standard tap water.
What is HOCI?
HOCI is basically H for Hydrogen, O for Oxygen, and CI for Chlorine. Combined, HOCI is HypoChlorus acid. HypoChlorus acid is not the same as HCI Hydrochoric acid or muriatic acid. HOCI is naturally created by the white blood cells you have in your body, and these white blood cells create HOCI to fight infections. HOCI is used in many everyday products to kill germs and eliminate odors. I actually took the Morton GO on a recent fishing trip. I can attest it kept my hands from smelling fishy after use, and I knew my hands were cleaner before stepping into my truck.
HOCI is created between salt and water when an electrical charge is passed through the solution. It takes about 45 seconds. The good news is this entire thing is self-contained in a small travel sized spray bottle. It is slightly heavier than a cheap plastic bottle, but the worth is that you will know you are doing something to protect the environment. And in less time than you would think, this system pays for itself in keeping you healthy.
I have been using this unit since December. I took it to a trade show in January and used it all week. It is easy to spray, and it can be refilled anywhere you have a little table salt and water. This is a great gift for those that travel. These are worth a look: Mortongo.com, made from the team that creates Morton Salt which has been around for more than a century.
