Is Basic-G+ effective against the 2019 novel coronavirus/COVID-19?
COVID-19 is caused by SARS-CoV-2, a novel coronavirus. Basic-G+ kills similar viruses and, therefore, can be used against SARS-CoV-2 when used in accordance with the directions for use against Norovirus on hard, non-porous surfaces. Refer to Health Canada’s Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) list for additional information. (You can find Basic-G+ by entering either “Basic” or “Shaklee” in the “Filter items” field.) NOTE: the Basic-G+ formula is the same in Canada and the United States.
What are the directions for use against Norovirus that should also be used for the 2019 novel coronavirus?
- Remove heavy soil deposits from the surface you wish to disinfect
- Thoroughly wet the surface with a use-solution of 4.0 mL per litre of water; if using a spray bottle, mix 2.0 mL (3/8 tsp) of Basic-G+ with 473 mL (16 oz.) of water
- The use-solution can be applied with a cloth, mop, sponge, or spray bottle or by soaking
- For sprayer applications, use a coarse-spray device; spray 6−8 inches from the surface and rub with a brush, cloth, or sponge – do not breathe in the spray!
- Let the solution remain on the surface for a minimum of 5 minutes; thoroughly rinse and allow to air dry
- All food contact surfaces and surfaces and objects that may come in contact with children at the mouthing stage must be thoroughly rinsed with potable water after disinfection
- This product must not be used to clean the following food contact surfaces: utensils, glassware, and dishes

Can people make their own disinfectant wipes with Basic-G+?
No. This would not be safe or effective. You cannot make your own wipes because this is not an approved use of the product. However, you can mix 2.0 mL (3/8 tsp) of Basic-G+ in a 473 mL [16 oz.] spray bottle of water and use as follows:
- Spray the surface thoroughly, making sure you don’t breathe in the spray
- Let it remain wet for 5 minutes
- After 5 minutes, rinse with water
- Allow to air dry
