A few other netizens also shared their experience and recommended similar sprays, advising worried parents to use them to kill dangerous bacteria and viruses.

The main ingredient, silver dihydrogen citrate is a new antimicrobial that is colourless, odourless, tasteless, non-toxic and non-caustic.

It is said to be safe to use for babies and for the body as well but do check properly with a medical professional before you doing so.
2. Dettol Disinfectant Spray
Dettol Disinfectant Spray has been proven to kill 99.9% of germs, viruses and bacteria. It is an alcohol-based spray and needs to be sprayed more frequently and this spray has a fresh fragrance as well. This spray can be used on non-porous surfaces that you come into contact with every day and has a deodorising effect. This spray cannot be used on bodies but the fumes are safe for pregnant women and babies.
Do take note that both of these sprays are meant to be for external use only!
Of course, it is always better to consult a medical professional if you are unsure! Stay safe and healthy, guys!
