Alconox Shelf Life

Alconox Shelf Life

Q. What is the Alconox shelf life or expiration of a 1% Alconox detergent solution?

A. A 1% Alconox solution has an expiration date of up to 2 weeks from preparation using deionized or distilled water stored in a closed container. The reason for the short Alconox shelf life is that the dilute detergent is a carbon source for microbes and the dilute detergent will eventually start to support microbial growth. It is acceptable to open the container periodically to pour out solution for use as long as the container is closed promptly after opening.
