The Challenge

In the wake of recent global events, social distancing and the pandemic have left profound physical and emotional impacts. The need for human contact is fundamental to our nature, but the challenges posed by the pandemic have made us rethink our approach to health and hygiene. Microbe Solutions recognizes the importance of breaking down barriers that prevent us from connecting with our loved ones.

Meeting the Needs

Microbe Solutions addresses these challenges by focusing on providing the best protection for consumers and their loved ones. Our products offer surface protection that is consumer-friendly, environmentally safe, and cost-effective. The aim is to provide value while ensuring the highest standards of safety and performance.

The Solution: Common Sense®

Common Sense® is a breakthrough technology that adheres to surfaces, attracting and destroying pathogens repeatedly, much like a needle pricking a balloon. This simple yet effective technology reconnects us, allowing human contact without compromising safety. Read more about how the Common Sense formula works.

The Common Sense Connection

Microbe Solutions, LLC, established in 2017 and based in Bayville, New Jersey, has revolutionized the sanitization industry with its federally registered and trademarked brand, “Common Sense.” Under the leadership of President Kathy Lenox and Vice President of Operations Michael Hammer, Microbe Solutions has developed a unique range of hand sanitizers and surface protection products that set new standards in microbial defense.

A Commitment to Allowing Human Touch

Microbe Solutions is committed to more than just killing germs. We understand the human need for touch and communication. Common Sense® products are designed to keep skin healthy and hydrated, allowing for continued expression through touch.

Innovative Technology

The “Common Sense” brand offers a pioneering approach to sanitizing, disinfecting, and protecting homes, businesses, and individuals. This antimicrobial technology, originally developed before World War II, has evolved into a multi-generation ethanol-based hand sanitizer and an EPA-registered, water-based surface protection coating known as Common Sense Fresh Start.

What makes Common Sense products exceptional is their ability to form a covalent bond with skin or hard surfaces. This bond not only eliminates bacteria and viruses on contact but also provides extended protection: up to a month for hard surfaces and hours for skin. The technology has proven effective against a wide range of pathogens, including bacteria, viruses, mold, mildew, algae, and yeast, making it a comprehensive solution for microbial threats.

Safe and Effective

Microbe Solutions employs a non-toxic mechanism of action, utilizing a process called lysis, where microscopic pins bond to surfaces and inactivate pathogens by piercing and rupturing their cell walls. This method prevents the development of superbugs and cross-contamination, offering a safer alternative to traditional antimicrobial methods that rely on alcohol dehydration or chemical poisoning. With a toxicity rating comparable to vitamin C, Common Sense products are safe for widespread use, including in the food industry and various international markets.

Proven Results

Common Sense technology has been rigorously tested and shown to be effective against numerous pathogens, including the hospital superbug MRSA, Staphylococcus, E. coli, H1N1, MERS, Norovirus, and more. Microbe Solutions’ products have undergone independent testing under ISO and GLP standards in laboratories worldwide, ensuring their reliability and efficacy.

Long-Lasting Protection

Microbe Solutions’ technology provides broad-spectrum antimicrobial protection that continues to inactivate pathogens for up to a month. Unlike conventional antimicrobials, Microbe Solutions’ products do not kill by chemical means, nor do they emit gas, leach, diffuse, migrate, evaporate, or otherwise leave the surfaces to which they are applied. This results in an extraordinarily long-acting, biostatic coating unmatched by other products.

  • Product Launches: Common Sense Hand Sanitizer, Common Sense Surface Protectant, and PreVent Automotive Deodorizing Aerosol.
