Rayne Guest, the Founder and CEO of ArrowClean, raises the alarm about the lack of effectiveness of traditional disinfectants to eliminate superbugs and other contaminants. Some of the most vulnerable people are in hospitals where patients and staff are exposed to germs, many of which are not treatable. ArrowClean is bringing a hypoallergenic, environmentally safe solution to the disinfectant industry.

Rayne explains, "We have hand sanitizers that take forever to work. Nobody's using them properly. We have people that are not disinfecting properly. They're not letting disinfectants sit long enough on surfaces to kill bugs. Most disinfectants don't kill superbugs because there are different types of pathogens. And a lot of disinfectants also cause harm to human and environmental health. So, it's kind of like we're stacking the cards against ourselves in a lot of ways."

"We have a patented device that creates hundreds of gallons of disinfectant and cleaner in a day. It has that capability. The products that come out of the device are hypoallergenic, and they kill germs really fast. A lot of products and disinfectants are out on the market, and you actually have to keep them wet on the surface for 10 minutes for them to work, for them to kill the germs that they say they kill."
