White Lightning® is the active Chlorine Dioxide (ClO2) solution to Thrush, Skin Fungus and White Line Disease. Chlorine Dioxide has been demonstrated to be bactericidal, fungicidal, virucidal and sporicidal while remaining harmless to healthy tissue.

It is available in gel and liquid form

White Lightning® is safe to use, and unlike hypochlorite, does not produce toxic byproducts. Chlorine Dioxide is so safe, it is routinely added to orange juice and other consumer foods and beverages to kill contaminants and prevent spoilage. Chlorine Dioxide is even used by dentists in periodontal work. Not only is ClO2 safe, but it is up to seven times more effective than chlorine bleach.

Chlorine Dioxide is an unstable gas, meaning it cannot be stored in a container, but rather must be generated when needed. In the liquid form this is accomplished by adding equal amounts of White Lightning® to a mild acid such as white vinegar. A chemical reaction then occurs generating ClO2. After a period of time, all gas is released and the resulting liquid is inert and totally harmless. In the case of the White Lightning® Gel, the same reaction occurs.

Instructions for use:

Liquid White Lightning is activated by mixing it with equal parts of white vinegar. This step should be performed in paper or plastic cups, but not in metal as White Lightning is an oxidizer. White Lightning is aggressive for 8 hours once mixed with vinegar. After 8 hours it becomes inert. Never mix more than you are going to use at one time.

Hoof Soak:
A foot treatment consists of 2oz White Lightning, 2oz white vinegar and enough water to cover half way up the hoofwall. Remove shoes, if possible, and clean the hoof of dirt and debris. Insert the clean hoof in a heavy plastic bag or the Disposable Vapor/Soak Boot containing the activated White Lightning solution and secure the top around the leg to prevent the escape of the gas produced by the activated solution (vet wrap around the top of the soak boot works well). Stand your horse in the bag/boot for at least 40-45 minutes.  CAUYION: Do not mix any other product with White Lightning as this could cause an undesirable chemical reaction.  White Lightning Liquid may discolor hair or clothing.  Repeat 2-3 times per week for the first 4-6 weeks. Then 1-2 times per week until the hoof has completely grown out. Treat once a month after the hoof has grown out to help keep White Line Disease away.
