Time Tested - A Modified Formula From World War I

Dakin’s Wound Cleanser

Dakin’s Wound Cleanser is gentle enough to be used on your skin and tough enough to kill bacteria and viruses within 30 seconds.

The non-irritating cleanser attacks infections in a such a way that harmful germs cannot build up resistances or immunities. It works along side your white blood cells and helps your body’s natural defense process.

Whether you’re cleaning off a scraped knee or a surgical  wound, this household hero just works. Dakin’s Wound Cleanser is adapted from a World War I wound wash so you can keep fighting.

Dakin’s Wound Cleanser Pro

Why the Pro Version?

Doctors prefer variance and options to provide families with the best options. The amount of Sodium Hypochlorite (the solution preservative) in Pro is 10 times more than the normal Dakin’s Wound Cleanser. This alternate product delivers the same benefits, while serving a niche market.

Dakin’s Wound Cleanser Pro is uniquely suited to kill what needs to be killed, while preparing the environment in your body for healing. While many other wound washes will only kill microorganisms or only prepare your body to heal, Dakin’s Wound Cleanser Pro does both.

Dakin’s Solution Product Line

Century carries four different strengths of Dakin’s Solution®. Explore your options to find the solution best suited for the needs of your loved ones or yourself.

Dakin’s Solution® is suitable for safely treating your loved ones and patients of a variety of cuts, abrasions and skin ulcers, as well as pre- or post surgical wounds and treating infection of skin and tissue.

Unlike similar products, our Dakin’s Solution requires no on-site mixing. Whether the particular injuries you are treating require our Full Strength, Half Strength, Quarter Strength or Di-Dak-Sol® you can rest assured knowing you are using a solution that is safe, effective and long-lasting. This also eliminates any chance for error that often comes along with similar on-site mixtures.


Dakin’s Surface Cleanser

Simply spray, set, wipe!
Countertops, prepackaged food, chairs – any solid surface in your house that is essential to keep germ free can use Dakin’s Solution Disinfectant.

This non-medical disinfectant is a take on our famous wound wash, now for your household or business surface needs.

Even though this has forty times the sodium hypochlorite of Dakin’s Wound Cleanser you can spray on hard surfaces, set for 10 minutes, and wipe away.
