Ozium is an aerosol-based anti-bacterial air freshener formally known as Medo Ozium Glycolized Air Sanitizer. Houston-based company Medo Industries, Inc. manufactures the product, which is said to reduce some odor-producing bacteria in the home, car or office. The popular product is registered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and contains active ingredients triethylene glycol and propylene glycol, each supplying 4.4% of the formula. The product is available for purchase throughout the U.S. in its original scent, as well as in citrus, country fresh vanilla and outdoor essence.
Grasp the aerosol can in one hand. Ensure that the spray nozzle points away from any pets or people in your environment.
Shake the aerosol can. This action mixes the active ingredients with the inert ones to ready the Ozium for use.
Press the nozzle with your index finger, and release the solution into the air at one-second intervals. This prevents you from saturating the air with too much Ozium.
Repeat this process in other areas of the room as needed. Repeat spraying the room every five to six hours for as long as the odor persists.
Check the malodorous room to spot any mold, trash or old food that may be causing the smell. Remove these before using Ozium.
If you have medical conditions such as asthma, bronchitis or allergies, consult with your specialist and primary doctors before using Ozium in an enclosed space.
Do not allow the formula any contact with your face or skin. If the formula touches your skin, run warm water over it for approximately fifteen minutes. Then dry.
If you get Ozium in your eyes, immediately wash your eyes out with a cool water bath then call your doctor for further advice.
Do not spray Ozium directly on furniture, clothing or bedding.
