Do you know what probiotics are? The dictionary definition is: usually a dietary supplement containing live bacteria that replace or add to the beneficial bacteria normally present in the gastrointestinal tract. Did you know that cleaning products can use probiotics to do a cleaning job instead of harsh chemicals? This is what I understand about using probiotics in cleaning. The probiotics work on a microbial level producing enzymes which in turn break down odors, grease, oil, food, dirt, waste and paper. The enzymes keep working after applying on a surface continuously for an extended period of time.
Let me give you and example: I clean a counter with household bleach. I then cut chicken on a cutting board. A few droplets of chicken water get on the counter. The counter is contaminated. Will the previously applied bleach clean up the droplets? No, the counter will need sanitised again. Now, I clean the counter with a probiotic cleaner. I then cut my chicken and the same droplets get onto the counter. The enzymes will start breaking down the droplets even before I resanitize the counter. Hmm, gives us something to think about!
I learned all this neat information at the Natural House website. Natural House has given me a 30 day supply of their fabulous Trashy, Sinky and Flushy natural household cleaning products to review for my readers. I have been using them for two weeks and boy am I happy with the results.
Trashy is last but definitely not least. I sprayed each of our trashcans with trashy and I can hardly believe the difference it has made in the smell. We have a large covered barrel on wheels just out side our back door. This is where we toss all the worst of our trash. The barrel is emptied every two weeks and taken to the dump. I hose out this trash can twice a month. The problem is just a few days after washing it is always stinky. I mean really stinky. Thanks to trashy the smell is so much better. I won't be able to use trashy in this can weekly but I am still happy with the results.
