Difficile it can be left for 60 minutes. 

It is available in a 1 litre ready to use format and is suitable to use on all hard surfaces including hand rails, wood metal, plastic and work tops. It is easy to use and is designed to be used in hotels, care and nursing homes and educational establishments.
