At a time when people are striving to do their best to disinfect against the deadly COVID-19, GrungewashRx has demonstrated effectiveness against viruses similar to SARS-CoV–2 on hard, non-porous surfaces.
Therefore, GrungewashRx can be used against COVID-19 when used in accordance with the directions for use against Norovirus and Rhinovirus type 16 on hard, non-porous surfaces. Refer to the CDC for additional information.
But what’s newsworthy about this product is that it is not only powerful enough to kill pathogens from E. coli, H1N1 and HIV, it is gentle enough for day and senior care facilities.
Gruene Anolyte (pronounced Green Anolight), a privately held Ft. Worth company started in 2018, produces the product known as GrungeWashRx. What is quite unique about the company is that its innovative existence is based on using cutting edge biomimicry technology.
And, what, you ask, is biomimicry? Biomimicry is a method of creating solutions to human challenges by emulating designs and ideas found in nature.
It’s noteworthy that even this company’s name has been carefully selected and inspired by meaningful history. Gruene, for example, is the name of a Texas town where it’s entire cotton crop was decimated by the boll weevil. This company’s founders took that name to pay homage to the fragile balance between people, plants and animals and to pledge their efforts to create a cleaner, greener world.
“Anolyte” is another name for Electrolyzed Water (EW), the basic ingredient used to make this one of the most powerful disinfectants, sanitizers and deodorizers in history. The process of making Electrolyzed Water combines salt, water and electricity in an electrolytic cell that mimics lightning striking the ocean. It’s a process that has been refined since the early 20th century, and today results in creating stabilized Electrolyzed Water.
If all this sounds very technical and disruptive, it is, according to Mary Palko, a retired RN, who along with cardiologist Dr. Stephen Newman and orthopedic surgeon Dr. Thomas Binzer are co-founders of Gruene Anolyte.
“At Gruene Anolyte, we strive to positively impact the lives of more than a billion animals, people and plants. Our products are used to clean, disinfect and sanitize our homes, hospitals, schools, farms and other businesses,” she said.
The company’s first phase is to execute on its mission to expand its suite of Electrolyzed Water to replace a variety of harsh chemical products and reduce toxicity to people, plants and animals. Their most significant breakthrough product, given our current environment, is GrungeWashRx.
According to Palko GrungeWashRx, a Class IV EPA disinfectant was added to the EPA’s N List recognizing its effectiveness against viruses similar to the SARS-CoV-2 that causes the disease COVID-19 on March 26, 2020. The solution is based on cutting edge HOCL biomimicry technology that emulates the disinfectant mechanism of our own white blood cells. It is a Category IV disinfectant, which is the least toxic category of disinfectant and requires no personal protective equipment to use. It works on all non-porous surfaces, like stainless steel and sinks. The product kills a wide range of pathogens from Norovirus, Rhinovirus, E. coli and Salmonella, yet is gentle enough for use with humans and animals.
Palko notes that GrungeWashRx is made from 3 ingredients: salt, water and electricity to create our active ingredient, hypochlorous acid, HOCL. “Our formula is made from sending an electrical charge through the salt water in an electrolytic cell to create hypochlorous acid (HOCL), which is the same compound produced by our own white blood cells to fight infection. The resulting Electrolyzed Water is strong enough for antimicrobial use and gentle enough for use in daycares, school and senior living facilities.”
Palko says that they have recently been receiving calls from some of the hot spots like New York City, but that mostly they are providing the product directly to the sanitation companies that clean the hospitals and other locations.

Not only can GrungeWashRx be used in institutional, industrial and commercial facilities, it is also equally usable in your home for all non-porous surfaces, like stainless steel, walls, windows, shelves and sinks as a disinfectant. The stable shelf is 30 days. After that, there is a very slow degradation to the sanitizer concentrations, and then GrungeWashRx’s shelf life extends to 24 months. GrungeWashRx can be diluted to deliver powerful cleaning.
Regardless of what disinfectant product you use, Palko says it is most important that once you spray the disinfectant on the surface, allow a “dwell time.” “People tend to just spray and wipe,” Palko says. She recommends that when cleaning your surface, first remove any crumbs, then spray the surface and allow it to dwell.
“Each pathogen needs a certain amount of minutes before the solution works,” she said. “What’s unique about ours is that you do not need to wipe or rinse as we are in the least toxic disinfectant. That’s an important difference.”
