Natural Cleaning With Hydrogen Peroxide

September 25, 2020

When other companies share propaganda about how wonderful their detergent smells, we wanted to enlighten consumers with specifics about our efficacy. We believe clothing scented by fabric softeners should not disturb the cologne or perfume worn. A fresh-smelling home should enhance the romance of the season. We gracefully bow down and let an aroma diffuser handle that. Instead, cleaning and doing it well is the mission and goal at Powerizer. We would rather brag about what is powering our revolutionary detergent and cleaner and be able to boastfully say, YES, Powerizer Complete does clean everything dirty, and here is why. 

So today, we wanted to highlight Hydrogen Peroxide. It's recognized as H2O2 and used as an oxidizerbleaching agent, and an antiseptic and is one of the main ingredients in Powerizer Complete. However, Powerizer uses the dried powdered form called Sodium Percarbonate, an adduct of sodium carbonate and hydrogen peroxide. When sodium carbonate (soda ash) and hydrogen peroxide mix with water, Sodium Percarbonate is activated. With more Sodium Percarbonate added to the formula, better cleaning happens as a result of more hydrogen peroxide in the mix so let us discuss the benefits.

Benefit #1

One scoop added to water, and Powerizer now encompasses an Oxidizing Agent, a substance that can oxidize other substances - in other words, to accept their electrons. This reaction is incredibly helpful in removing odors from fabrics and surfaces.  Hydrogen Peroxide removes odor from a smelly toilet and sweaty socks. When cleaning laundry, Powerizer does not discriminate against football or designer work socks. There is no need to buy a separate odor removing laundry detergent for sports apparel or sensitive skin. When concerned about triggering skin allergens, consumers rave about how it rinses clean, leaving no lingering scent. 

Benefit #2

Water activates the color-safe bleach. Bleaches are oxidizing agents (chemicals that can remove electrons from other molecules), some are reducing agents (that donate electrons). Bleaches work by reacting with many colored organic compounds, such as natural pigments, and turning them into colorless ones. Stain removal is especially necessary for washing, and all-natural laundry detergents usually cannot do it alone. However, with Powerizer Complete, we have demonstrated this when squirting Powerizer onto the carpet to remove wine stains safely and instantly, colored compounds fade into colorless ones. Powerizer's color-safe bleach is not going to remove the dyes from clothing, so it is safe for washing colored and dark fabrics and performs just as well when washing in cold water temperatures.

Benefit #3

Hydrogen Peroxide is best known commercially as an Antiseptic and applied to the skin to reduce the possibility of infection, sepsis, and putrefaction. We all have at least one brown bottle in the medicine cabinet, especially since the beginning of the pandemic. The CDC shared how effective it is at killing the Coronavirus, and consumers cleared the shelves. However, industry reports indicate the number one (#1) use of H2O2 is for its use in laundry detergent. Powerizer chose a safer-choice alternative to bleach and has earned approval as an EPA BioPreferred Product for cleaning in four categories laundry, dish, carpet and upholstery, and multi-purpose cleaning.

Sodium Percarbonate has been a main ingredient in Powerizer Complete and is why it cleans hard-surfaces and fibers so well. However, it can be mixed to remove stains, deodorize pet odors, tackle laundry, and make your dishes sparkle. In addition it is a hard-water softener and a machine cleaner. It cleans all types of hard surfaces like windows, countertops, cabinets, walls, baseboards, floors, walls, toilets, tile, grout, cast iron, pots and pans, and even concrete. Powerizer simplifies cleaning so that consumers can save time, eliminate excess products, reduce the number of containers and lessen their environmental footprint, gain more storage space, eliminate harmful toxic ingredients from their homes and  most of all save money.

Although Powerizer has never been tested as an antiseptic for cleaning the skin, we know the formula's measurement of hydrogen peroxide exceeds the minimum requirements to be considered a disinfectant for killing bugs off surfaces. Our formulation would require a specific measurement of water to Powerizer, which has yet to be specified. However, mixing more detergent with less water or used as a paste will effectively remove grilling grease stains from the deck, yet safe enough to clean without using gloves. 

Depending on the cleaning task on hand, mix up a solution of Powerizer and use it to wash, soak, scrub, deodorizer or remove stains easily with just ONE scoop.

Powerizer must always be rinsed with plain water to remove residues from the detergent and stains. To prevent a white powder from forming on the surface, after it dries, rinse the surface or fibers thoroughly with plain water. Wipe items with a dry split-fiber microfiber cloth, which is an excellent tool for removing excess moisture, to polish away residues, and shine surfaces.
