Spring Cleaning with Powerizer Complete

    Spring Cleaning does not have to be a daunting task.  Instead, it is an opportunity to re-up.  Refresh, Redesign and Replace.  We recommend chunking tasks and tackle your to do list in half the time. We pulled together Four Re-Up Categories.  


    We've Pulled Together Four Re-Up Categories To Get Your Spring Cleaning Started 

    Spot Clean Stains  Deep Clean Neglected Area 
    Remove Dust From Surfaces Wash & Stow-Away Items 


    Spot Clean Stains Throughout Your Home

    Simplify the process by making a soak solution - Speed up the process by soaking Knick Knacks, Chinaware or Silverware in a pitcher or bin. 

    Spot Clean Large Furniture - First, we recommend making a pretreat to power out stains from your sofa, recliners and love seats. 

    A pretreat allows the detergent to isolate a stain giving it time to work its magic. When cleaning a sofa or loveseat with additional cushioning below the fabric use a Powerizer 16 oz. bottle of water with one (1) scoop of detergent. Less is more so apply the detergent to the cloth first and apply the solution to the stain. If the stain isn’t lifting right away, saturate the stain and use the same method as described below to absorb the excess detergent from the fibers of a furniture.

    Spot Clean Stains from Fabric Chairs - Pretreat and wipe the entire surface to prevent a clean vs dirty line. Always blot and apply a rinse.

    Spot Clean Sweat Stains and Smells from Mattresses

    Step 1 - Pretreat Stains With Powerizer Complete's Heavy Duty Solution. For best results in treating stains and odors, pre-treat by mixing a heavy-duty cleaning solution of Powerizer using one (1) scoop in 16 oz. of water.

    Saturate the stain - Use a split fiber microfiber cloth to dab and absorb the stain as much as possible. If the stain does not remove immediately, allow the solution to sit for at least 30 minutes.  

    Step 2 - Scrub and absorb the detergent from the surface. An obvious clean vs dirty line is familiar with cleaning fabrics; applying a rinse multiple times will elevate the yellow spot that can appear if all the solutions is not been  removed. 

    Powerizer contains natural enzymes for cleaning that will work on blood, sweat, vomit, urine and other organic stains. Rinsing thoroughly will also combat skin allergens from developing. 

    Step 3- For best results use a carpet / upholstery machine to extract excess water.  Fill the Reservoir of the Carpet Cleaning Machine with PLAIN HOT WATER. 
    Step 4- Apply the water to the surface and remove the detergent and water from the surface until the water absorbed is clear.

    How to Wash Pillows

    Spot cleaning is an option, but to thoroughly clean the pillow, pretreat stains, then wash inside the washer. Next, completely dry each separately inside the dryer. Consider tossing in 2-4 dryer balls to help speed up the drying time.

    Remove Tough Stains from Carpets and Area Rugs 

    Pretreat and saturate urine stains to make sure the detergent penetrates down to the padding.

    Step into the stains to help spread the detergent to soak down into the pad. Powerizer helps to neutralize pet stains and odors.

    You must never forget to remove the excess detergent with plain water. Use a carpet cleaner to help rinse and absorb the detergent as described in the mattress cleaning video.

      Deep Cleaning Hard Surfaces - Many household items can get overlooked and require a deeper clean. Usually, a simple wipe, a soak, or applying a little more elbow grease is all that is needed.  However, when it's not, consider using a concentrated solution or a paste.  Less is more with Powerizer.  Less water and more Powerizer will create a concentrated paste.  This is perfect for oil stains on the driveway or remove tough grout stains.  

      Deep Clean Everything in your Bathroom - Cleaning a bathroom involves scouring many different surfaces such as tile, porcelain, grout, windows, walls, fixtures, a shower liner, and rugs. First, investigate how serious the job is. Try the black light test to guide you from shocking to satisfied. Powerizer is all you need to clean everything in the bathroom. Remember to rinse every surface to remove residues. Invest in a black light it will give you peace of mind that you've removed all the residue.   

        Deep Clean Grease Residue from Kitchen Cabinets - Harsh chemicals left on the wood, laminate, or stained cabinets can remove the protective finish. Powerizer is made from safer choice ingredients, so no need to worry. However, it's still not wise to allow any liquid to sit for long on wood surfaces. Instead, mix a wash solution (1 scoop to 1 gallon of water). Use a damp split fiber microfiber cloth to get into the wood carvings to lift and scrub residues that can accumulate from the grease that evaporates from cooking fumes. Always wipe everything down after cleaning with plain water.

        Steam Clean your Microwave - Drop a pod into a large glass bowl of water and start the machine for 3 minutes. The steam will soften food splatters and residues inside. After the timer stops, use the heated water to saturate a microfiber cloth and wipe all the surfaces to remove residues. Wear gloves if the water is too hot. Finally, wipe down the surface with plain water. Buff the outside with a dry cloth to polish the stainless steel.

        Organize and Deodorize your Refrigerator - Use the same method for mixing a cleaning solution as done inside the microwave. After the solution is cooled down and the detergent is dissolved, wipe all your surfaces with a Microfiber cloth. Soak items that can be removed in the sink or bathtub, and be sure to rinse all containers and surfaces using plain water. Polish and dry your surfaces with a clean microfiber cloth to remove residues, including stainless steel.

        How to Deep Clean the Oven, Range, and Burners with a Non Toxic Cleaner - 

        Busy schedules require cooking meals late, making it more likely to overlook messes that accumulate on the stove and oven. Buckle down and clean it the intelligent way.

        • Add the Powerizer solution to the bottom of the oven while it's still cooling down. The heat speeds up the oxygenation process.
        • When cleaning pots and pans, we recommend adding the cleaning solution to the pan while it's still hot. So, don't be afraid to add a cleaning solution to the bottom of the oven too. 
        • Soak your burners in a boiling water with some Powerizer.  Do not attempt to clean them until the water has cooled down.  Add more powder and scrub with a nylon dish scrubber or a brillo pad.  The paint is not likely to scrub off.

        TIP: Wearing silicone gloves will help to protect your hands from the hot water and your hands becoming greasy.

Also, consider using the microfiber mop to reach high and to limit the amount of bending. A simple wash solution, a microfiber cloth, and lots of water to rinse away the residue are all you need.

        Remove Debris from Windows and Screens - If you find a cleaning service that tackles windows, you should invest in stock. Until then, buy Powerizer.
