Description

Highly diluted, neutral antiseptic solution for cleansing wounds. Consists of sodium hypochlorite (0,45 % to 0,5 %) and boric acid (4 %). Its solvent action on dead cells hastens the separation of dead from living tissue. The solution is unstable and cannot be stored more than a few days. Developed during World War I.
