Dosage and Administration

It is a violation of federal law to use the product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

Sanitizing buildings and equipment on the farm: To sanitize surfaces of buildings, equipment, or utensils which have previously been thoroughly cleaned, use 1 oz. of PREMISE® Disinfectant in 5 gallons of water. Spray or swab the solution onto surfaces to be sanitized. Allow to drain dry without rinsing.

Sanitizing poultry drinking water: Add 1 oz. of PREMISE® Disinfectant to every 10 gallons of drinking water. Regular use in the drinking water also helps to keep the waterers free of slime and mineral deposits.

Food plant sanitization: Use 1 oz. of PREMISE® Disinfectant in each 5 gallons of water as the final sanitizing rinse on previously cleaned food-processing equipment and utensils. Drain, but do not rinse. When used at this dilution (1:640), PREMISE® Disinfectant does not require a final potable water-rinse, as prescribed in Federal Food Additive Regulation 178.1010.

Shoe bath: To help prevent tracking disease organisms into poultry houses, farrowing houses, and hog barns, place a shoe bath inside the doorway, containing 3 oz. of PREMISE® Disinfectant per gallon of water. After scraping shoes outside the doorway, stand in the shoe bath for 30 seconds prior to entering building interior. Change the shoe bath once a day.

Deodorant: PREMISE® Disinfectant destroys many odors as it sanitizes and disinfects. For general deodorant applications (garbage pails, refuse containers, etc.), swab or spray on a solution of 1 oz. of disinfectant per gallon of water.

Cleaning and disinfecting building and equipment on the farm: Before proceeding as indicated below, remove all animals and feeds from premises, cars, boats, trucks, and other equipment. Remove all litter and manure from floors, walls, and surfaces of barns, pens, stalls, chutes, and other facilities and fixtures occupied or traversed by animals. Empty all troughs, racks, and other feeding and watering appliances, saturating all surfaces with PREMISE® Disinfectant solution. Immerse all halters, ropes, and other types of equipment used in handling and restraining animals; as well as forks, shovels, and scrapers. Ventilate buildings, cars, boats, and other closed spaces. Do not house livestock or employ equipment until the treatment has been absorbed, set, or dried. All treated feed racks, mangers, troughs, automatic feeders, fountains, and waterers must be thoroughly rinsed with potable water prior to re-use.

Then, clean and disinfect in one step with PREMISE® Disinfectant. Use 1/2 oz. of PREMISE® Disinfectant per gallon of water. Scrub the surfaces to be cleaned and disinfected with a good brush or with a power sprayer. Start at the highest point of the building or equipment being cleaned, and work downwards. Let the solution drain dry without rinsing.
