Effectiveness as a mouth rinse
Laboratory testing showed 80 ppm ClO2 destroyed SARS-CoV-19 in 10 seconds , and a sodium chlorite (stabilized chlorine dioxide) mouth rinse destroyed up to 98.4% in 30 seconds in simulated saliva.
Study 10 , Study 12
In small-scale study of 40 people with COVID-19, those using sodium chlorite (stabilized chlorine dioxide) mouth rinse showed more notable improvement in symptoms and recovery than those using chlorhexidine gluconate.
Some Concentration Levels
Nasal rinse 40 ppm(w/w)
Mouthwash 60-100 ppm(w/w)
of "free" chlorine dioxide
