The Times of India reports:

Union minister Maneka Gandhi has asked her ministerial colleagues to opt for a "natural disinfectant'' made from extracts of cow urine instead of the "chemically bad'' one in government offices.

In a letter to her colleagues in the council of ministers Gandhi has proposed a switch to 'gaunyle' - cleaning liquid made from cow urine extracts, arguing that it "environment-friendly".

So I am really curious about whether this is effective as a disinfectant.

    Don't know how effective it may or may not be, but phrases like "natural disinfectant" and "chemically bad" make my snake-oil sensors twitch... – Shadur Mar 26 '15 at 10:39
  • I find it interesting that I can't find any sources for what "gaunyle" even is – warren Apr 1 '15 at 13:22
