A Cleaner Home from the Inside Out - ORGANICALLY
I know, I know...talking about drains and pipes is not all that sexy or interesting. But there they are. We all have to deal with them, sooner or later. Here are unique, green products that no household should be without, and while they have many qualities and specific applications, may we say in summary that they will help you live in a cleaner home, from top-to-bottom, at the "deepest" level - inside your plumbing.
Your Home's Digestive System - Its Plumbing
Your kitchen and bathrooms may look clean...
Everybody wants a clean home and local environment. But the clean we see doesn't always reflect the accumulation of waste in the places we don't see. And as it happens, many of our regular cleaning chores, like doing the dishes, adds to the waste.
Bathroom sinks, showers, tubs, and toilets are all "making deposits" into your home's digestive system, and unfortunately, a good amount of those deposits stay there.
Cleaning Moves Waste Where You Don't See It (until...)
A lot of waste goes down the drain - food particles large and small, soap, hair, fats, grease, oil....where does it all end up?
Much of it sticks to your drains and the inside of your pipes. If you have a septic tank, most of the large particles will gather there to decompose, and the rest will flow into your city's sewage system for treatment and/or eventual release or reuse.
Here's the thing: there's more waste going in than can be taken out by normal degradation processes. Many municipalities are asking residents to reduce or eliminate the use of garbage disposals for this reason.
Ironically, the overuse of antibacterial soaps has also contributed to this problem by eliminating much of the naturally present bacteria that normally degrades organic waste. (While there are good uses for antibacterials, it is a much better idea to use biodegradable soap for everyday use.)
What are the results at home of accumulated waste in the plumbing? Increasing buildups leading to slower drain flows, blockages, bad odors, and unsanitary conditions that can contribute to the breeding of pests and unhealthy germs in your household.
|Typically, this is stuff we don't even think about until we get a complete stoppage. And unless we know better, we look for a quick fix with a chemical drain opener or expensive plumber's visit.
But chemical openers are merely intended to burn through a clog - they don't eliminate built up waste on the walls of the pipe. This is treating the symptom, not the cause! They can severely damage your plumbing and they will severely hurt you or loved one if touched, inhaled, or ingested.
And while a plumber may clear out a blockage, it's also a temporary (and costly) fix.
A Better Way! Probiotics for your pipes...
Similarly, friendly bacteria applied into waste water can significantly reduce organic waste that builds up in drains, pipes, septic tanks, and local sewer systems.
Put Friendly Bacteria to Work Cleaning
Bio-Clean® and MegaMicrobes® Dry formulas are special combinations of natural bacteria and enzymes that DIGEST organic waste found in your plumbing system: grease, hair, soap scum, food particles, paper and cotton. It can even help eliminate pesky drain flies by eliminating the waste they feed on.
MegaMicrobes® Liquid formulation uses a different microbial strain to similarly attack organic waste.
A GREEN SOLUTION that really works. Guaranteed.
Q. But isn't bacteria already present in waste water solids, helping break it down?
But seeing is believing, and here's a short video with a simple demonstration of Bio-Clean's effectiveness (and yes, you can try this at home!):
