I've just started using Morgan's "Sanitize" as a sterilising agent. I'd like to know how long I can keep a batch of mixed sanitiser before its effectiveness is compromised.

Morgans Sanitise contains hydrogen peroxide and silver ions, both excellent sanitisers.

Hydrogen peroxide does degrade.

I would have a stab at keeping made up solution for a week before discarding. This is from my personal experience, not from any formal suggestions. Maybe a resident microbiologist woud like to make a suggested use by date.
