Dettol liquid is an effective concentrated antiseptic solution that kills bacteria and protects against the germs which can cause infection and illness. It can be used for antiseptic cleansing of minor wounds caused by cuts, bites, grazes, insect stings; for dandruff, spots and pimples and if medically advised, for personal hygiene.
How To Use
For application to the skin
Wound cleansing: Wash the affected area with two and a half teaspoons (12.5ml) of Dettol liquid diluted in half pint (250ml) water. Cover with dry gauze or lint.
Personal hygiene/ douching: Two teaspoonfuls (10ml) of Dettol diluted in two pints (1litre) of warm water.
Dandruff: One tablespoonful (15ml) of Dettol diluted in one pint (500ml) of warm water. Saturate hair and scalp for 10 minutes, then shampoo.
Spots and Pimples: Bathe the affected area daily with one tablespoonful (15ml) of Dettol diluted in half a pint (250ml) of warm water (not for eczematous conditions).
If contact is made with the eyes, wash them thoroughly with cold water. If swallowed, wash out mouth and drink plenty of water. In both cases, consult a doctor and take the bottle with you.
