How to use Dettol products
Dettol products can be used as often as necessary. The hygienic wipes and hand wash are ready for use. Dettol disinfectant liquid should always be diluted first. For disinfecting wounds, dilute 5 ml of the liquid in 100 ml of tap water. Apply the diluted solution on the skin using a cotton ball or gauze. Avoid contact with the eyes, nose and mouth. One or two applications a day should be sufficient. Read the package leaflet before use.
