Bind-It™ is a safe, gentle and extremely effective cleaner that binds and traps radioactive iodine allowing it to be removed from most surfaces and skin. When Radioactive Iodine leaves your body through urine, sweat, breath, etc., it can cause radioactive contamination.
If another person comes in contact with the radioiodine contamination, it may be absorbed and enter their thyroid. If I131 if absorbed by a person with a normal thyroid, it may damage their healthy tissue and potentially cause future thyroid problems. Children have smaller thyroids than adults, the impact of radioiodine contamination will be greater on their thyroids. Pregnant women and small children should be especially cautious around potentially contaminated areas to avoid any internal uptake of radioiodine.
Why take chances? Bind-It™ products are proven to be extremely effective at removing radioiodine (I131) from almost any surface, including your hands and skin.

How Bind-It™ works.
Bind-It™ products work by trapping the Radioactive Iodine in solution. Then it can be wiped away or rinsed from surfaces that you may have contaminated as the Radioactive Iodine is eliminated from your body. Surfaces such as toilets, sinks, showers, bathroom floors, door knobs, telephones, remote controls, etc. should all be thoroughly cleaned with Bind-It™ to avoid spreading contamination.
Simply spray the surface with Bind-It™ Ready-to-Use Spray and the solution starts to “bind up” the radioactive iodine. Then, using paper towels, wipe away the liquid and the trapped radioactive iodine. These towels can now be stored in an isolated place to allow the Radioactive Iodine to naturally decay. This will take at least 90 days, they should then be safe to dispose of. (At least two states — Maryland and Massachusetts — said they had encountered problems with household trash from the homes of patients treated with radioactive iodine. Garbage trucks set off radiation alarms at landfills )
For toilet bowls, squirt a few tablespoons of Bind-It™ Concentrate into the toilet bowl, then scrub with a toilet brush. Wait about 1 minute, then flush.
