Does Force of Nature Actually Work? Here’s how.
We know what you might be thinking: an appliance that converts salt, water & vinegar into a multi-purpose cleaner and disinfectant that kills 99.9% of viruses and bacteria. Does Force of Nature actually work? It does, and we’ve got our good friend Chemistry to thank! Here’s how it works.
Does Force of Nature Actually Work? The Chemistry.
Force of Nature uses a technology called electrolyzed water, which is a technology used in industrial applications including wound healing, produce preservation, eye care, veterinary care, organic crop production, and also in green cleaning & sanitizing. Electricity is used to change the chemical composition of salt & water into 2 new ingredients. It’s typically made in industrial size tanks, but Force of Nature sizes the technology down for your countertop. You fill up the electrolyzer with tap water, squeeze in a Capsule of salt, water & vinegar, then Force of Nature passes an electrical charge through the solution. The solution is then converted into 2 new ingredients:
- Hypochlorous acid (HOCl), the disinfectant & sanitizer. This is the same substance your immune system produces to fight infection in your body. Besides being the active ingredient in wound therapy & eye care products, it’s also used as a hospital disinfectant.
- Sodium hydroxide (NaOH), the cleaner & degreaser. This is a common detergent used at varying concentrations in products like toothpaste, skin moisturizers, and sunscreens, and in cleaning products. In cleaning products, concentrations are typically around 1-5%, but in Force of Nature it’s only 0.0000003%.
With the chemistry change, Force of Nature actually works to create a super potent multi-purpose cleaner and federal EPA registered disinfectant and sanitizer just as effective as bleach. Here are the specifics.
Force of Nature Kills Germs As Effectively As Bleach
Force of Nature kills 99.9% of germs, including Staph, MRSA, Norovirus, Influenza A, Salmonella, and Listeria when used as directed. Even better, Force of Nature kills viruses and bacteria with no harmful chemicals, fumes or residues. To become a federally registered EPA disinfectant and sanitizer, the product is tested using extremely strict EPA-required anti-microbial testing protocols across multiple batches, with suppliers, purity, concentration & processing of all ingredients approved, all within strict statistical limits. The product must kill a range of microbes at the 99.9% level within a specified amount of time. Wondering about Coronavirus (COVID-19)? Force of Nature is a hospital-grade disinfectant that is on EPA’s list N, the disinfectants approved for use against SARS-CoV-2, the cause of COVID-19. And good news, the EPA expects all products on List N to kill all strains and variants of SARS-CoV-2. Refer to the CDC website for additional information. Force of Nature is EPA registered for sanitizing and disinfecting hospitals, ICUs, veterinary clinics, schools, daycares, and more. In fact it’s the only EPA registered disinfectant and cleaner you can make yourself on your kitchen countertop.
Force of Nature Cleans & Deodorizes Just as Well as the Top Brands
Force of Nature is just as effective as Formula 409 on grease, Windex on glass, Scrubbing Bubbles on soap scum, Febreze on odors, and Resolve on rugs. That’s right – despite having no toxic chemicals, Force of Nature actually works to clean & deodorize virtually anything in your house just as effectively as the top cleaning brands. And unlike typical natural cleaners, it’s the only brand you can buy without added fragrances, dyes, preservatives or surfactants. That means no skin or respiratory allergens or irritants. None! And if you’re surprised that “natural brands” can contain toxic chemicals, that’s because there are no regulations dictating safety standards for product labeled “natural”. And in case you’re wondering, Force of Nature is safe to use on virtually any surface in your home, from sealed stone, glass, stainless steel, porcelain & tile to wood, rubber, plastic, composite, and lots more.
It Works For the Planet Too!
Because Force of Nature has reusable bottles, you can completely eliminate single-use plastic bottles from your cleaning routine. And, because it replaces multi-purpose cleaners, deodorizers, rug & glass cleaners, sanitizers and disinfectants, you can eliminate all those plastic bottles too. And with no toxic chemicals going into our water system, our oceans are happier too. We’re proud to be Green Seal certified for its environmental excellence.
We’re parents too, so we get how hard it is to find products that work without exposing our families or ourselves to harmful chemicals. Whether we’re buying baby wash, deodorant, macaroni & cheese or laundry detergent, that trade off always seems to the one that comes up. That’s why we started Force of Nature, because we don’t think you should have to trade off products that work with what’s gentle enough for your family & the environment. When we learned about the electrolyzed water technology, we knew that if we could size it down for families’ counters (and budgets!), it would be the solution families were looking for.
