Cleanup of Minor Chemical Spills
Always work carefully and do not hurry when cleaning up minor chemical spills. Keep people away from the spilled chemicals. Do not leave unless someone is there to warn of the danger. If the antimicrobial agent was spilled on anyone, then give correct first aid according to the label instructions.
Use an absorbent material to soak up the spill. You can use soil, sawdust, cat litter, or diatomaceous earth. Shovel all contaminated materials into a leak-proof container for disposal. Dispose of it as you would do with excess antimicrobial agents in accordance with federal, state, and local codes. Do not hose down the area, because it will spread the chemical.
Some spills can be neutralized to stop the chemical action. Read the labeling information to make sure that you use the correct neutralizing chemical, or call the manufacturer or distributor of the antimicrobial for assistance.
Do not allow anyone to enter the affected area until the spill is all cleaned up.
