Using Colloidal Silver around the home

Colloidal Silver is well-known to support the immune system and to help fight infections with its antimicrobial properties.

But it may also be the best all-natural, environmentally-friendly household disinfectant you can use for the safety, health and wellbeing of your entire family. 

With its antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral properties, there are plenty of ways Colloidal Silver can be used to keep your home infection-free.

When Colloidal Silver encounters a virus, fungus, bacterium or any other single celled pathogen, it disables its oxygen metabolism enzyme. This effectively suffocates any bacteria, virus or fungus-producing cell, and they are unable to replicate.

See our article: What is Colloidal Silver?

A quick spray or wipe with Colloidal Silver is all you need to keep germs at bay. As it’s 100% natural, it doesn’t contain alcohol or any other chemicals, so it won’t dry out your skin, or leave any unwanted residue behind.

Face masks

‘Maskne’ is a term for the acne flare-ups and skin irritation you can get from wearing a mask constantly. Bacteria can build up under a mask, which can lead to clogged pores, redness, and other skin conditions. You can alleviate this by staying hydrated, wearing a little less makeup, and washing your face regularly using a gentle cleanser.

If you wear a fabric mask, avoid synthetic fabrics, such as nylon or rayon, and wash it every day in hot soapy water. Allow to dry and then spray it with Colloidal Silver, as well as spraying a little on your face to avoid bacterial build-up. You can also spray it inside disposable masks for an extra layer of antibacterial protection.
