Q. I am a bit concerned that on your disinfectant cleanser and deodoriser you say: 'Simply spray on, leave for a minute and wipe off using kitchen towel.' Surely it should be rinsed out with water afterwards?

A. Don't worry Ark-Klens is safe to use this way. The active ingredient is widely used (including in contact lens solutions), and no significant residues will be left if you wipe down with kitchen towel.

Q. I have been using ready-to-use 500ml ARK-KLENS to disinfect my bird feeders and equipment. I now have a 250ml concentrate container to recharge my spray but am confused with the dilution instructions on both containers.
The concentrate container label recommends 10ml/5litres. The spray label says it can be recharged using 5ml of standard ARK-KLENS in the container. I would like to assume that the 10ml/5litres solution is the "standard ARK-KLENS" mentioned on the spray label of which I need to use 5ml made-up to 500ml with water. Could you please clarify the situation for me?

A. 'Standard Ark-Klens' is the concentrate solution, so to make the Ready to use solution you need to add 10ml of the concentrate per 500ml to make up the spray, this is 10 times the dilution used when you make it in a bucket (10ml per 5litres) but the usage is usually very different. ie spray on wipe off, when its made in a bucket usually things get wet and stay wet for a time, soaking bowls etc.,  so the longer the contact time the lower the dilution.
