MANILA, Philippines — Breakthrough clinical studies in Japan have found that Natucair, a Japanese fabric freshener spray brand, can almost completely eliminate SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, for up to 24 hours.

Earth Corp., the Japanese household company behind Natucair, recently made this announcement on the viral tests conducted by Japan Textile Products Quality and Technology Center (QTEC).

“The viral studies conducted by (QTEC) in Kobe, Japan showed that Natucair Linen and Fabric Spray was effective in killing 99.9 percent of SARS-CoV-2 suspension up to 24 hours on fabric, making it an important product in preventing the spread of the virus not only to loved ones and family within the same household, but to the public,” said Shintaro Noda, in charge of regional marketing of Earth Corp.

The product targets a potential point of transmission that should not be taken for granted – fabrics. An earlier study that looked into the survival rate of COVID-19 on commonly worn fabrics found that the virus could survive for up to three full days on fabric.

“We highly recommend using Natucair regularly on fabric items in and around the house to keep you protected from SARS-CoV-2. For example, hard to wash items like upholstered couches where various members of the family or guests sit together in close contact can be sprayed down with Natucair to remove odors, germs and SARS-CoV-2 lingering on the fabric. Or one can even spray down their clothes in the morning and not worry about the virus on their clothes when they get home at the end of the day. This full 24 hours of protection allows us to not worry about spreading the virus on our clothes and fabric. It provides peace of mind to many Filipinos who may potentially be exposed to the virus when having to go to work or run errands outside,” Noda said.
