WHAT IS MY ROI?  (Return on investment)

The best way to understand the financial value of One-Step is to calculate “cost per useable gallon” as follows: 

Divide cost per gallon ($54.95) by dilution rate (128) = true cost per useable gallon.

54.95 / 128 = 43¢.

Result: the cost of a useable gallon of this One-Step Disinfectant is 43¢.

As defined by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), One-Step Disinfectant by Splish Splash is registered as a cleaner, disinfectant and sanitizer. For clarity, here is a chart from an EPA.gov website article that explains:

What’s the difference between products
that disinfect, sanitize, and clean surfaces?

At EPA, products used to kill viruses and bacteria on surfaces are registered as antimicrobial pesticides. Sanitizers and disinfectants are two types of antimicrobial pesticides. 


What does it do?

Does EPA regulate the product?


Cleaning removes dirt and organic matter from surfaces using soap or detergents. 

EPA regulates cleaning products only if they sanitize or disinfect. Learn more about the EPA's role.


Sanitizing kills bacteria on surfaces using chemicals. It is not intended to kill viruses. 

Yes, EPA registers products that sanitize.


Disinfecting kills viruses and bacteria on surfaces using chemicals.  

Yes, EPA registers products that disinfect. To find disinfectants for use against SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19), see List N.

One-Step is a hospital-grade disinfectant that is effective against dozens of organisms; it is a cleaner, deodorizer, disinfectant, fungicide, mildewstat, virucide and sanitizer (non-food contact).  

“When used as directed, One-Step Disinfectant is effective against hundreds of dangerous bacteria and viruses found on hard, nonporous surfaces in 10 minutes or less, including SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.”

This product is also widely used to clean, disinfect and sanitize pedicure basins between customers and for deep cleaning.



Here’s why:

While the EPA does not endorse or recommend any product, the EPA registration number on the label means that the agency has reviewed the product’s formula, its active and inert ingredients and verifies the product will do what it claims. It meets our expectations: That the product will do what the label says it will, and it’s safe.  

According to agency representatives in a Nails Magazine interview, “The EPA registrations means a product should do what the label says and should not pose an unreasonable hazard to your health.”

In addition, member guidelines of the International Nail Technician Association’s state, “In all cases, we recommend using an EPA-registered, hospital-grade liquid disinfectant that the label claims is a bactericide, viricide and fungicide.”

Check out this snippet from a label on a Gallon of One-Step Disinfectant:
