    Just my opinion, but it sounds like you would be better off working with a
    company that is not recommending you mix hydrogen peroxide with a quat.

    Let the hydrogen peroxide do it's thing and afterwards apply a durable
    antimicrobial, one that will kill and provide lasting protection.

    Do you have a link to the label? I find it strange they don't have a link to it
    on their web site (yet they do have their MSDS up) and I know of a product that
    was recently approved and got their label up on the PPLS system within 2 weeks
    (despite the blurb about delays on the EPA database) yet I don't see this one in
    the EPA database.
