Ever got hurt while you were outdoors? How quick did you find a first aid to clean the wound or cut? Here is a Dettol Antiseptic Liquid Travel Pack which can come handy in such situations.

This is a flexible burst pouch of Dettol Antiseptic Liquid for a quick access to the liquid for cleaning the wounds or cuts when you are away from home. Dettol Antiseptic Liquid is often used to clean the germs or dirt around the wound. At times the existing bottle can be space consuming to carry for short distances which calls out for the need of a compact solution, one can simply slide in the front pocket of any bag or a travel first aid kit. This pack consists of 3 components which include Dettol Antiseptic Liquid to start with, then water to dilute the liquid and finally a cotton wipe to soak all the liquid mixture. Users can carry it for a one day outing or while doing adventurous activities or while playing any sport.

Most users use the bottled liquid by tilting the bottle and keeping a cotton ball at the mouth of the bottle which causes excess use of concentrated liquid than required and sometimes even spillage from the bottle leading to wastage of the product.

*The brand name and logo have been used for visualization purposes. Dettol does not endorse the product.

While using the bottled Dettol Antiseptic Liquid, one has to carry a separate cotton wipe or cotton ball which is not always possible. Besides the Antiseptic Liquid is suggested to be diluted in water to avoid skin irritations or allergic reactions. This Dettol Antiseptic Liquid provided the Antiseptic Liquid with water as well as a cotton wipe.

The 3 components are separated by a frangible seal. A frangible seal is incorporated into the pouch separating each component. The internal frangible seal requires deliberate pressure to burst the interior weld between the two components, allowing for mix-in-the-bag activation. This lets the users mix the mixture of the Antiseptic Liquid and water, freshly whenever they need it. Users connect with the freshly mixed smell of the liquid.

  1. Squeeze out the Dettol Antiseptic Liquid to the middle section of the pack
  2. Mix the Antiseptic Liquid with water and again squeeze out the mixture further to the top section
  3. The top section contains a cotton wipe which will get soaked as the liquid enters the section. Now users can tear open from the top and use the soaked wipe to the affected area.
