Abstract: Because of over-emphasis on the use of chemicals to control infection due to microorganisms, more problems have been created rather than being addressed. Disinfectant prepared during this study is 100% natural and is based on cow urine and biodegradable and antibacterial plant extracts (Neem, Tulsi, Ritha and Pine oil) possessing pleasant aromatherapeutic vapour. No additional artificial dyes or fragrances have been used. Different compositions were tried to get optimum disinfectant action. The results showed that the higher concentration of both Neem and Tulsi extract possess maximum efficacy. The main aim of this product development is to provide employment to the rural youth and to use safe disinfectant for cleaning floors, etc.
