Natural Cleaning Solutions:
18 New Uses for Force of Nature You Probably Never Thought Of
Force of Nature is a multi-tasking powerhouse, if we do say so ourselves! Beyond your regular all-purpose cleaning & deodorizing, here are some more uses to try:
- Backpacks & lunch boxes: You know that backpack rolls around the floor of the bus, right? Not to mention the fossilized banana that festers in there. Spray that monster with Force of Nature to keep it clean & fresh.
- Furniture & rugs: Blot the spill, spray Force of Nature, then wipe (repeat if necessary). It cleans as well as Resolve and won’t remove color like bleach does. Always 1st test in an inconspicuous spot to ensure the fibers are colorfast & let the test area dry before proceeding.
- Thermoses, straw cups & sippy cups: These have lots of nooks & crannies where old liquids can fester, but most can’t go into the dishwasher. Spray thoroughly, shake, wait 30 seconds, then wipe.
- Cloth diapers: First, hats off to you cloth-diapering parents out there! Remove as much of the “soil” as possible, then soak cloth diapers in Force of Nature either before putting them in the washer or instead of putting them in the washer. You want to use Force of Nature at its full power on a dirty diaper, because the washer or any extra water dilutes away the efficacy. Just completely soak the diaper for 2 minutes to make sure it has a chance to remove the source of the odor and anything else gruesome in there. It won’t remove color like bleach and also won’t leave any harmful fumes or residues behind.
- Fresh cut flowers: Add a few ounces of Force of Nature to the vase of water to keep those blooms beautiful longer.
- Toothbrushes: Nothing good can come from these sitting in water or on a counter just a heartbeat away from the potty. Spray them when you clean your counters just to be safe. Shake off any residue.
- Clean clothing spills on-the-go: Coffee spill right before your meeting? Just spray with Force of Nature as soon as you can, then wipe and repeat until the stain is gone. Always 1st do a test in an inconspicuous spot to confirm the fabric is truly colorfast & don’t use on clothing labeled “only non chlorine bleach”.
- Sponges: These might be some of the nastiest items in your house because they stay damp and are used to wipe so many gross surfaces. Spray your sponge or scrubber daily with Force of Nature.
- Bath toys: These are full of nooks & crannies that host icky old water & soap scum. Just spray bath toys regularly to keep them squeaky clean– no need to rinse.
- Dirty/Stinky Pets & Their Habitats: It’s pet-safe because it has no toxic chemicals, fumes or residues. Hypochlorous acid (the hero ingredient in Force of Nature) is actually used in a number of veterinary care products because it’s so safe. Spray on bedding, litter boxes, toys or towels.
- Hands & doorknobs: Only 5% of people wash their hands property after using the restroom, according to report in the Journal of Environmental Health. Even more disturbing, 10% of people skipped washing their hands altogether. If you’re on-the-go without access to soap & water, Force of Nature is safe to spray on hands & nasty doorknobs.
- Cars: Kids & dogs can make your car a sticky, stinky, crumby mess. Force of Nature is great for deodorizing and cleaning all the surfaces in your car.
- The fridge: Clean stuck-on messes & odors – no need to rinse off food contact surfaces.
- Humidifiers: Talk about an impossible to clean item that really needs to be clean! After each use, empty the humidifier, spray in Force of Nature, shake it around, wait 30 seconds, then empty.
- Makeup brushes: Spray them regularly with Force of Nature. You can do this because it’s safe on skin – Force of Nature is rated as extremely safe by Skin Safe, an organization developed by the Mayo Clinic to evaluate product safety from an allergy perspective.
- Diaper bags: Realizing at the end of the day that the bottle with milk in it leaked all over your diaper bag is a huge bummer. Spray your bag with Force of Nature until it’s soaked, then let it dry naturally. That removes the odor & prevents anything else from festering in there.
- Yoga Pants, Tops, Bras: While Spandex and Lycra repel sweat, they repel water too, so that the fibers don’t ever get thoroughly rinsed in the wash. Hence those stubborn smells. Saturate the stinky item with Force of Nature and let it sit for 2 minutes before tossing it into the wash. It’s safe on washable clothing, but we recommend doing a quick spot test the first time to confirm colorfastness.
- Yoga Mats: Just spray your mat down after each session, and Force of Nature removes the odor and anything gnarly that tries to take up residence in that mat.
