We can all agree that disinfectants are a necessary household staple these days. And even without a global pandemic going on, it’s already tough enough to keep your house both clean and free from dangerous chemicals.  

There’s no better time to save money, minimize products and detox your home from chemicals that can be doing some serious harm to  your immune system. The solution? A product called Force Of Nature – the ultimate non-toxic cleaner and disinfectant made from salt, water, vinegar and electricity. Yes, you read that right – electricity.

Force of Nature is a multipurpose cleaner and EPA registered disinfectant that kills 99.9% of viruses and bacteria when used as directed. It’s EPA registered for use in hospitals, ICUs, schools, daycares and veterinary clinics and more. The best part? You can use it for almost anything because its non-toxic and no added scents. One bottle of this affordable cleaner will cost you less than a buck and replaces almost every other cleaner you have in the house.

You’re probably wondering how the heck water, salt, vinegar and electricity can disinfect. The answer? These ingredients are the foundation of electrolyzed water

What is electrolyzed water?

Making electrolyzed water is pretty simple chemistry.  You start with a specific proportion of salt, water and vinegar.  A salt molecule is made up of the elements sodium and chloride, and a water molecule is made up of hydrogen and oxygen. When you apply the electrical current to the solution, the molecules are broken apart and combined into 2 new molecules:

  • Hypochlorous acid (HOCL)– This is actually the same substance your white blood cells produce to keep you alive healthy. Hypochlorous acid is actually as effective as bleach when it comes to disinfecting. HOCL is both gentle and effective, which is why it’s commonly found in wound, eye & veterinary care products. 
  • Sodium hydroxide – a detergent used at low concentrations in products like toothpaste and skin moisturizers, and at higher concentrations in conventional cleaners. Force of Nature’s concentration is at 0.0000003%, which is considered not toxic with no need to rinse off. In your typical cleaner, you’ll find concentration levels from 1-5% (3 million to 17 million times the concentration as in Force of Nature and can be extremely harmful).

So why add vinegar? Vinegar lowers the pH (the acidity) of the solution so that the right amounts of hypochlorous acid & sodium hydroxide are created. Depending on the vinegar concentration, the combination can either create a solution that’s predominantly bleach (sodium hypochlorite), or instead hypochlorous acid. The pH will also determine whether the solution meets the EPA disinfectant requirements that kills 99.9% of germs. 

Lucky enough, the Force of Nature kit comes with pre-measured “activator” capsules that you squeeze into the electrolyzer machine with tap water. No need to measure anything out, and no risk of accidentally making bleach!

 Did you know there’s no federal criteria for what products are labeled as “natural”? That’s why you find toxic ingredients like phthalates even in “natural” products. We love Force of Nature because it has no fragrances or toxic chemicals of any kind.

How to use Force of Nature

Force of Nature can be used for anything that you want to clean or deodorize. Here’s a list of examples for around the house:

In the kitchen: sticky messes, grease & grime, counters (including sealed stone like granite, marble, quartz), wood, laminate, cutting boards after cutting raw chicken or fish, glass, appliances (including on stainless steel), even on your baby’s high chair tray.

Bathroom: The Force of Nature solution is as effective as bleach without harmful fumes or residues. It’s perfect for cleaning tubs, toilets, sinks, grout, tile, sealed marble, porcelain, glass, faucets + doorknobs.

The Nursery: Baby toys, diaper pails, changing pads, “accidents.” 

For Pets: The solution deodorizes stains and odors with no harmful residues or fumes. Kitty litter cleanup, pet toys, bedding, and accidents on rugs. Good rule to go by – when using on carpet, fabric or flooring, always 1st test for color-fastness in an inconspicuous spot & let dry before proceeding.

Other misc items: Front-load washers, mold, makeup brushes, tooth brushes, rugs + furniture, sports gear, humidifiers, straws and utensils, camping gear and enema kits. 

A few notes: since Force of Nature has no drying accelerants like ammonia or alcohol based cleaners do, wipe with a clean cloth or paper towel until the surface is completely dry. Depending on surface build up, you may need a mild abrasive (baking soda) with your scrubber the first few times.
