The sample were divided into two halves. One was disinfeted with smoke harmala (10gr/m3) and the other with Hydrogen peroxide. After the appropriate time, the re-sampling was carried out on blood agar and Mac Cancan. The results were analyzed using the software SPSS16.
Results: The results showed that hydrogen peroxide had some antimicrobial effects on staphylococs and gram-positive, and Peganum harmala smoke had the effects on the gram-negative bacilli. Chi-square test revealed no differences in their antimicrobial effects between Peganum harmala smoke and Hydrogen peroxide solution.
Conclusions: Since Peganum harmala smoke can be as effective disinfectant as hydrogen peroxide in their properties, and regarding its effects on the Gram-negative bacilli, it can be used as an auxiliary disinfectant in the theraputic wards.
