The new HaloShield reusable underpads are designed to control odors by killing bacteria. They are infused with the patented HaloShield technology, which is a durable coating that binds chlorine molecules, used during a regular wash cycle, to nearly any textile. Normally, chlorine evaporates from untreated fabric soon after laundering, but the HaloShield treatment binds chlorine to the product throughout its life cycle. The antimicrobial properties of the chlorine are renewed each time the sheet is laundered in an EPA-registered chlorine-based sanitizer.
