Hydrogen Peroxide

Did you know that hydrogen peroxide is biodegradable??? Well now you do. 😉 It’s what WE use as a base in the majority of our cleaning supplies!

Not only is it biodegradable but it also works extremely well to disinfect your home. This powerful product is an effective disinfectant because it produces free oxygen radicals, which destroy bacterial cells when it comes in contact with bacteria.  This is why hospitals have been using hydrogen peroxide for years!

I couldn’t believe it. THAT’S how well it disinfects!

So, when we say our products work well to disinfect your home while also leaving a green imprint, we truly mean it!

As a cleaner I was always looking for new products that were natural and worked well, and while there are some great products out there, I wasn’t quite satisfied. Instead of settling I decided to make my own knowing exactly what was going in them to disinfect effectively AND make my job easier and quicker.

Don’t believe me? Try for yourself!
