How to use Dettol products

Dettol products can be used as often as necessary. The Dettol hygienic wipes and Dettol hand wash are ready for use, while Dettol disinfectant liquid should always be diluted first.

For disinfecting wounds, dilute 5 ml of Dettol antiseptic liquid in 100 ml of tap water. Apply the diluted solution to 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.
