We all have experienced working harder than we should. In managing Bailey's normal daily activities, you would have used, Laundry Detergent, Bleach, Stain Remover, and a Laundry Machine Cleaner after cleaning her pet outfits, blankets, bedding, and fluffy toys. To keep Bailey's water and food bowl clean, most households purchase Dish Soap and a Dish Detergent for the dishwasher. For pet stains and paw prints on the carpet and upholstery, you would add Carpet and Upholstery cleaner to your shopping list. Also on the list would be Floor Cleaner to manage pet hair and dusty paw prints from her frequent trips in and out of the doggy door. As she walks throughout the house, her paws and nose prints can be found on the Windows, Stainless Steel, Cabinets, Walls, and the doors. If it's a spa day, the bathroom is a wet, musty mess so you can add a bathroom cleaner to the basket too. And of course, Pet Urine on the floor as accidents happen from time to time. The bottom line, cleaning up after Bailey shouldn't take away from YOUR discretionary income. Buying multiple cleaners is no longer a necessity.  

When Plato said, "Necessity is the mother of invention." Powerizer was created for the 64 Million dog owners in mind. When the need for something becomes imperative, you are forced to find ways of getting or achieving it. Powerizer resonates with folks who are annoyed with buying multiple specialty cleaners and products with harsh chemicals. 

Instead, we recommend diversity in your cleaning tools and stick to Powerizer Complete it's the ONLY multipurpose cleaner and detergent you need because it really does clean everything dirty.   

Cleaning tools to use with all purpose detergent

Below is a list of tools we recommend. 

Powerizer Complete. It's safe for you and your pets, apply, wash then simply rinse with warm water to remove residues, no different than if you washed dishes or dirty clothes. There must always be a RINSE cycle. Powerizer has an odor neutralizer and has proven to remove odors, even pet urine stains. Just saturate the stain and rinse with plain water. Then you must absorb the solution if you are using it on carpet or upholstery, which takes me to the next great tool.

Powerizer's Microfiber Cleaning Cloth. They are the most effective dish towel, wash, dust or scrubbing cloth I have ever used. They are capable of absorbing liquid up to seven (7 )times its weight when dry. This means when you're cleaning the carpet and need to absorb the excess detergent and rinse water, this is the best tool. The electrostatic acts as a magnet to attract and trap in the dirt. This cloth will simplify all the necessary steps in cleaning your surfaces.

The Wonderwedgie Microfiber Mop is an excellent tool for surface cleaning of walls, baseboards, under beds, and washing windows. Its telescoping pole allows you to adjust the length so you can reach higher and further. The best thing is you will never have to experience a smelly mop. Instead, the same microfiber cloth you use to clean your windows can work to clean the floor.  When you need to dust, use a dry cloth. When you need to mop, use an entirely new cloth. Finally, to polish your floors switch out to a fresh towel and spray plain water to rub away footprints or to lift any residues left behind from the detergent. It uses replaceable microfiber cloths, not a mop head. Check out these videos explaining the science behind a microfiber cloth and the Wonderwedgie.

The Squeegee is by far better than using a broom, especially for bathroom cleaning. Squeegee hair off the counter first by using a little water to get it to float out of crevices around the faucet and into the sink. If you have a raised basin, squeegee the debris off the counter into a dustpan. Then dump the mess in the toilet or the trash. Use the same technique for the floor. However, before you actually clean the floor with a detergent, squeegee water and hair into a dustpan. 

After cleaning windows, rinse with plenty of water then squeegee the window to remove excess water. If you become an expert at the squeegee technique, you won't even have to use a paper towel during the process. Just buff away any water lines with a microfiber cloth.  

To Create a Wash Solution: Refer to the Powerizer Instructions "Everyday Cleaning" on the back of the bag ¼ a scoop to 32 oz or if you need more use one (1) scoop to one (1) gallon of water in a sink or a bucket.

To Create a Pretreat: Refer to the Powerizer Instructions "Heavy Duty Cleaning." To create a Concentrated Solution, use one (1) scoop in 16 oz of water in either a bottle with a breath tip or a bowl. This bottle replaced dish soap, stain remover, carpet, and upholstery spot remover and makes it easy to target clean the tub, toilet, and pet accessories.

For a quick and straightforward mechanical clean, use just plain water and a clean cloth. Keep a Travel-Size Spray Bottle-and a Water Bottle in your side door to make a Concentrated Solution on the go. Use a Regular-Sized Spray Bottle filled with water for use throughout the home and office instead. 

The Best Scrubbing tools can really make a difference. We recommend a toothbrush and a hand dish scrubber. Both are great at agitating dried on or older stains when a little extra friction is needed. We are not a fan of sponges, which are known for harboring bacteria. For lifting stains from delicate fibers, use a damp microfiber cloth instead. 

As you read through Bailey's Pet Activity Log, you see it's straight forward when it comes time to tackle her clean up and care of her belongings.  It's simple ONE versatile product does it all.  Pour the powder to make a cleanser concentrate. Dilute in water to make a Wash, Soak, Laundry Detergent, Dish Detergent, Bathroom Cleaner, Floor Cleaner, Stainless Steel Cleaner, Window Cleaner, Countertop Cleaner, Shoe Cleaner, Back Seat Cleaners, Kennel Cleaner, and the list goes on.  

The American Pet Products Association conducted its first National Pet Owner's Survey in 1988 and it's a fact pet ownership has grown to 67% of US households (84.9 Million Homes). The majority of homes that own a pet is higher for dogs (63.4 million households). However, more pet cats are living in homes than dogs (94.2 million). If you're a cat lover, it is not uncommon to have more than one.
