Frequently Asked Questions
What comes in the Force of Nature Starter Kit?
water right from the tap.
How does Force of Nature compare in cost to the cleaning products I typically buy?
is only $.07 per ounce, which saves you up to 80% on every ounce vs brands like Seventh Generation, Method & Mrs. Meyers. With Force of Nature you get an all-purpose cleaner & deodorizer that works on virtually any surface in your home – a
true multi-tasker at a great value.
How does Force of Nature Work?
a detergent & grease-cutter that cleans (but without the bubbles). Contains a safe concentration of 0.0000003% yet cleans as well as major brands that have up to 5%. • Hypochlorous acid – a cleaner & deodorizer that’s as effective as bleach,
yet non-toxic. It’s very safe to use around your kids & pets because it has zero harsh chemicals. Hypochlorous acid is the same substance your white blood cells produce to keep you healthy, and it’s commonly the active ingredient in wound, eye
and veterinary care products because it’s so safe and effective. It’s actually a type of chlorine, and most people don’t know that there are different types of chlorine. Hypochlorous acid is very different from sodium hypochlorite (bleach) because
it’s so safe. Unlike bleach, hypochlorous acid is safe enough to spray on the surfaces children come into contact wth, even pacifiers, without needing to rinse.
Does Force of Nature have a scent?
used in wound, eye & veterinary care products because it’s so safe and effective. Hypochlorous acid is the same type of chlorine your white blood cells produce to keep you healthy. Most people think there is only one type of chlorine, which is
bleach (sodium hypochlorite). In reality, hypochlorous acid is the non-toxic, gentle hero of the chlorine family!
Does it work with hard water or well water?
reduces the life of the appliance. Hard water is anything above 200 mg/l (measured as CaCO3). Your municipal water supplier should be able to tell you the water hardness in your area.
Can I add my own fragrance or essential oils to Force of Nature?
Why does the Force of Nature solution only last 2 weeks?
oz, so most families use about a bottle a week when they use it for all their all-purpose cleaning & deodorizing needs (ie replacing bleach, deodorizers, kitchen, bath & glass cleaners). Families who also use it on floors & rugs use even
more. There is a date on the base that counts down the 14 days to remind you. Because it has zero toxic chemicals, it’s completely safe to dispose of any unused product right down the drain.

What is the shelf life of Activator Capsules?
On what types of surfaces can I use Force of Nature?
like granite, marble, quartz, wood, laminate), glass, appliances (including on stainless steel), even on your baby’s high chair tray & cutting boards where it’s so safe there’s no need to rinse. On glass & stainless steel, because 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. In the bathroom, Force of Nature gets rid of odors, soap scum & grime. It cleans all surfaces,
including grout, tile, sealed marble, porcelain & glass. You can even use it to clean your toilet. For surfaces where you currently use an abrasive like a scrub brush (for example with soap scum), with Force of Nature you simply use the same brush.
Depending on surface porosity & build up, you may need a mild abrasive like baking soda with your scrub brush the 1st few times. Force of Nature is also great in the nursery for safely cleaning & deodorizing diaper pails, changing pads, and
even baby toys & items like pacifiers that make it into your baby’s mouth. Just spray, wait 30 seconds or rinse, and your baby can be back in action with that safely cleaned teething toy. In pet areas, Force of Nature safely cleans & deodorizes
stains and odors. It’s safe & effective on kitty litter, pet toys & bedding and won’t remove color on your color-fast carpet or furniture. Always 1st test for color-fastness in an inconspicuous spot & let dry before proceeding.
Has Force of Nature been tested by an independent party?
the highest safety rating by SkinSafe, the Mayo Clinic’s rating system for product safety for skin allergies. That evaluation of the Force of Nature ingredients is here.
Are there any cleaning jobs Force of Nature won’t work for?
Resolve, but without any toxic chemicals. Always test for color-fastness in an inconspicuous spot & let dry before proceeding. Our lab test results are here.
Because Force of Nature doesn’t have drying accelerants like ammonia-based or alcohol-based cleaners, we recommend always cleaning with a clean cloth or paper towel and wiping until the surface is 100% dry. When used this way, Force of Nature is as
effective on glass as Windex and as effective as Formula 409 and Clorox Clean Up on oil & grease. And if you have hard water, we’re sorry to say that Force of Nature won’t work for you unless you use filtered, bottled or distilled water. The minerals
in hard water prevent the chemistry from working properly.
Do I use the implements I typically use when I clean?
accelerants like ammonia or alcohol based cleaners do, wipe with a clean cloth or paper towel until the surface is completely dry.
Does it leave behind any kind of film or residue?
problem with Force of Nature. Simply spray the solution on any surface and wipe dry with a clean cloth or paper towel. On glass & stainless steel, because 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.
Does it work with hard water or well water?
shortens the life of the appliance. Excessively “hard” water is anything above 200 mg/l (measured as CaCO3). Your municipal water supplier should be able to tell you the water hardness in your area.
Is Force of Nature safe for septic systems?
I like to get all my cleaning done at once, so I’ll probably use more than 12 ounces of Force of Nature when I clean. What’s the most efficient way to do that?
I’ve noticed that the time on the counter sometimes fluctuates. Why?
the counter registers the fluctuating electrical flow and the device adjusts the time accordingly. Force of Nature turns off not after a specified period of time, but only when the solution is exposed to a specified volume of coulombs to create the
optimal concentration of cleaner. That’s why we tell customers that the time is about 6 minutes, not exactly 6 minutes.
My Force of Nature counts down and then says d14. What does this mean?
My Force of Nature isn’t working properly. Do you have some simple tips I could try?

Can I recycle the capsules?
How do I properly store my Activator Bottle? Do I need to rinse it?
the rinsed bottle prior to turning it upside down to dry.
What makes Force of Nature different from other natural or green cleaners?
products use botanical-sounding ingredients, but just because it’s botanical doesn’t mean it’s safe. Thymol is a great example – though it’s derived from thyme oil, it’s a known allergen. And because manufacturers aren’t required to disclose all of
a product’s ingredients on its label, it’s sometimes hard to know what’s hiding in a cleaning product. Another example is that many “natural cleaners” contain methylisothiazolinone, a toxic preservative linked to allergies, lung, neurological and organ toxicity. Force of Nature has been given the highest safety rating by SkinSafe, the Mayo Clinic’s rating system
for product safety for skin allergies. That evaluation of the Force of Nature ingredients is here. Most important is that
Force of Nature is so safe that you can use it directly on surfaces used for food without rinsing, (though it’s not designed to be sprayed on food – that’s what spices are for!), safe enough to use without gloves, and safe enough to have your kids
actually help you clean!
How is Force of Nature better than just making a homemade cleaner with vinegar?
it requires the extra step of rinsing with water. Last, vinegar is not as safe as you might think. It contains acetic acid, which can damage eye tissue and burn the esophagus and stomach, so you need to be cautious with concentrations. Hypochlorous
acid, the cleaner & deodorizer in Force of Nature, is much safer around children and pets. In addition, unlike vinegar, Force of Nature is just as effective as conventional cleaners like Clorox, Windex, Formula 409, Scrubbing Bubbles, Febreze
& Resolve. See 3rd party lab test results here.
Is this the same as diluted bleach?
actually different types of chlorine. Hypochlorous acid is the same substance your white blood cells produce to keep you healthy. It’s also commonly used in wound, eye and veterinary care products because it’s so safe and effective. The formula for
sodium hypochlorite is NaClO. The formula for hypochlorous acid is HOCl. Hypochlorous acid is a component in bleach – It is the ion that kills microbes. When the pH of bleach is lowered, made acidic, the hypochlorite ion converts to a hypochlorous
ion. Force of Nature contains 98% HOCI. Hypochlorite is toxic. Hypochlorous acid is not. You definitely can’t dilute bleach and make hypochlorous acid.
Why hasn’t this been done before?
companies & institutions because it costs $10,000+. Force of Nature is the first product that allows you to make electrolyzed water at home, right on your countertop.
Glass & stainless steel
Grease & oil
Set in odors on rugs
Pet accidents on rugs
wait for 2 minutes, then use clean paper towels or cloths to wipe up any remaining soil. It’s critical to spray all the layers of the rug that have been soiled. For example you should spray even the under side of the rug if the accident has soaked
through. That will stop the odor at its source. Let the surface dry and if any odor remains, go through the process again to ensure all layers of the surface have been saturated with Force of Nature.
Spills on rugs & furniture
Thermoses, straw cups, sippy cups, water bottles
Brass & Copper
Do I need to wear protective gloves when using Force of Nature?
safety for skin allergies. That evaluation of the Force of Nature ingredients is here.
Can I use my own salt & vinegar instead of the Force of Nature capsules?
that is mostly bleach or doesn’t deodorize.
Can I see your MSDS safety information?
Do your bottles contain BPA or BPS?
What happens if I use more than 1 capsule at a time?
I’m concerned about antibiotic resistance. Does Force of Nature cause antibiotic resistant germs?
Do you have an EWG rating?
do not have devices rated in the cleaning category. Given the newness of our system it is understandable.” Our Safety Data Sheet is here which has in depth product safety information. We always recommend that families do their own research. Electrolyzed water has been independently evaluated by numerous sources because it has been used in the industrial space for so many years. You
can readily find links to this research by searching on electrolyzed water or hypochlorous acid, or starting here and here.
