Formula X has been developed by Shevington resident Mike Fahey. The liquid substance is designed to disinfect devices such as phones, keyboards and tablets of Covid-19 and other bacteria, without ruining the surfaces in the way that traditional antibacterial sprays or gels do.

It can also be used to keep your hands clean in the manner of sanitising hand gels, though it requires a much smaller amount to kill germs.

The product has been safety tested and approved for sale by the local authority and Mike, who fought cancer three years ago, has pledged to donate the net proceeds from sales of Formula X to cancer charity Macmillan.

The formula has also recently been used by officers at Greater Manchester Police to safely clean their biometric fingerprint scanning devices.

Recent product trials have suggested that Formula X can reduce the transmission of Covid-19 by 65 per cent in the work place, it’s no surprise that Mike has such confidence in the power of his product.

Mike and his team have therefore decided that Formula X should be rolled out to NHS and other front line workers, to give them the protection they so desperately need. But this is an enormous task, and they has been told that they must gain government assistance for such a large distribution drive.

In order to do this, they require support from local communities all over the country to back their campaign.

And so, as an incentive, Mike has launched an initiative to offer a free bottle of Formula X to everyone in Wigan who backs the campaign.

By visiting formula-x.co.uk and using the voucher code “WIGAN1” at the checkout, residents will receive a free bottle worth £6.95, only paying for P&P. There is also an option to add a voluntary donation to Macmillan.

Mike said: “The product itself is fantastic. It’s very handy to have on you. People are using it on their spectacles, on their car steering wheels, it’s great for anything. It works on any surface. It’s been met with a hugely positive reception.

“A hand sanitiser is absolutely fine for your hands but you can’t go rubbing it all over surfaces, particularly mobile phones. They have absorbent materials and are not silicone-sealed.

“It contains ingredients which mean it doesn’t affect any conduits in the electrical parts of the phone. It dries out very quickly and is resistant to the electrics, and that’s why it works so well. The average mobile phone contains more harmful bacteria than a bathroom. The bacteria on these devices is incredible.”
