    Default Can anyone recommend Disinfectant Spray to use at shows on stalls?

    Can anyone recommend Disinfectant Spray to use at shows on the stalls? I worry about Bleach Water mix staining my clothes and being to strong of an odor. Stall Safe Spray maybe? Lysol?

    Lysol is always a safe bet, I think.
    Tell a Gelding. Ask a Stallion. Discuss it with a Mare... Pray if it's a Pony!

    You can mix Nolvasan solution in a new garden type sprayer and spray down the entire stall inside and out - let dry before bedding. Has a pleasant odor, will not stain and will kill just about everything that might be living in that stall.

    Use to use it at the vets clinic in between patients.

    But if the stalls are wood and the floor is anything but concrete, you're just p***ing in the wind...

    I can recommend, nothing. I have never sprayed down a show stall in my life.

    Ask your vet for the best option, and follow the directions. Many disinfectants need to saturate the surface for at least 10 minutes.

    There is a product called Stall Safe that is quite good. A chlorhexidine solution (dilute per mfr's instructions) is also a good option.

    Nolvasan is the brand name for chlorhexidine and can be used on any type of surfaces, not just concrete.

    How about a gallon that makes 50 gallons of Chlorhexidine Solution for $10.80 plus shipping?

    AND it kills rain rot, scratches, thrush, athletes foot, takes the "hoof smell" of your hands . . .

    In light of the EHV-1 outbreaks; I would say that the very best disinfectant spray is called "stay at home".

    Haven't used the stall product but their wound treatment is amazing and far surpasses anything else we have used. Barn has been calling it the "wonder stuff"! See https://www.facebook.com/dacvitamins.../photos_stream
    for pics.

    Anyway I would totally trust their stall product too.

    It oxidizes quickly and does not need to be rinsed before putting animals in the stalls!

    I asked this question a while ago & was jumped all over. This is not being germ-phobic, it is practical.

    We were taught this as standard practice in animal health. There are certain disinfectants that will reduce the load, and the risk, as others have mentioned. The stalls at our local show grounds have some shady groups come through there, and I fully intend to disinfect when I use them.

    Bugs can llive up to six days in the snot in a stall - right or wrong?

    Bleach. Cheap, entirely safe, and kills everything. Everything. And it evaporates into molecules which already exist in the environment. Best, cheapest, safest, most effective choice.

    Has anyone ever considered tacking up some kind of cheap impervious drape inside a stall, like a shower curtain? Figure that if you are mistrustful of a wood stall's cleanability, putting something between horse and stall wall could be one solution.... (yes, I know, some horses destroy everything in their path..)

    Bleach is inactivated by organic material, ie wood stall walls.
