How To Clean and Disinfect Your Main Living Areas With Force of Nature
Our main living areas are no stranger to foot traffic – often muddy, snowy or worse! Cleaning and disinfecting is particularly important in our more active living spaces, as they tend to be where there is an increased risk of exposure to sickness-causing germs. During this pandemic, we’ve been using more cleaning and disinfecting products than ever before – which, unfortunately, isn’t always a great thing. Conventional cleaning products are poorly regulated and often include harmful, toxic chemicals that can have serious consequences for our health and the health of our family members. To add to our stress levels, disinfectant shortages can make it hard to count on the fact that we will be able to easily find disinfectants at a fair price. Luckily, Force of Nature is here to give you a gentle, yet super effective disinfectant that you can make yourself, on-demand in your home! Here’s how you can use Force of Nature to keep your main living areas clean and disinfected.
First Things First
Force of Nature is registered with the Environmental Protection Agency as a disinfectant that kills 99.9% of viruses, germs and bacteria on surfaces. It’s also on the EPA’s List N, the disinfectants approved for use against Covid-19. So it’s a great way to ensure you are effectively cleaning and disinfecting your home without being worried about harmful chemicals and toxins that could impact your family’s health. Sadly many conventional cleaning products contain harmful chemicals that can affect our respiratory systems and trigger allergy and asthma symptoms – and prolonged exposure to them has shown to be as dangerous as smoking a pack of cigarettes a day!
The active ingredient in Force of Nature is the very same as the one our own immune systems produce to fight infection. It’s called Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) and it’s been used in medical applications like veterinary medicine, ophthalmology and wound care for decades.
Top 5 Ways To use Force of Nature To Clean and Disinfect Your Home’s Main Living Areas
Here are some of the top ways Force of Nature can help you keep your home’s main living areas clean and disinfected.
Force of Nature is safe to use on virtually any surface in your home, including natural stone like marble and granite, without concern about etching or staining. You can use Force of Nature to clean and disinfect your natural wood furniture, wood and tile flooring, bookshelves, and dust-catching accessories like lamps and decorative objects. For glass or mirrored surfaces, you’ll just want to make sure you buff them dry right away to avoid water spots, as Force of Nature doesn’t contain harmful ammonia, which is used as a drying accelerant in typical glass cleaners. Force of Nature can be even used in a refillable mop, which makes it a game-changer for spills and flooring!
#2 Cooking and Food Preparation Areas
While it is a powerful sanitizer, Force of Nature is safe to use on food preparation areas like cutting boards, kitchen counters, dining tables and high chair trays. You can even use Force of Nature for produce as a rinse! Spray Force of Nature directly onto the surface and let dry naturally.
The kitchen can harbor some pretty scary bacteria from food products. Force of Nature is a federal EPA registered disinfectant & sanitizer proven to kill 99.9% of bacteria & viruses, including Norovirus, Salmonella, Influenza A, Staph, MRSA & Listeria. The federal EPA has designated Force of Nature for use in sanitizing and disinfecting hospitals, ICUs, medical clinics, daycares, schools, restaurants & veterinary clinics & more.
#3 Carpet, Upholstery and Stain Treatment
Carpets and upholstery can be some of the most toxic areas in our homes. The chemicals in conventional carpet and upholstery cleaners are no better, so using Force of Nature to clean these surfaces is a great way to reduce your toxin exposure. To use Force of Nature to treat stains, always test an inconspicuous area first. Then, blot to remove as much of the residue as possible, before spraying directly onto the stain, let it saturate, and air dry. Repeat this process if necessary.
For carpets and upholstered items that you would clean with a wet vac or carpet cleaner, Force of Nature can be used inside the appliance in place of conventional upholstery or carpet cleaners.
#4 High-Touch Areas
High-touch areas are places in your home that people come into contact with often. These may include doorknobs, drawer pulls, cabinet pulls, fridge doors, countertops and furniture and objects in entryways. It’s important to clean and disinfect these areas often to cut down on the presence of sickness-causing germs. If we’re using disinfectants that contain harmful ingredients, we can unintentionally be exposing ourselves and the people who touch these areas next, to harmful chemicals.
Luckily, Force of Nature can easily clean and disinfect all these areas without needing to wipe or rinse. You don’t have to worry about someone touching the area after you’ve disinfected, as Force of Nature is registered SkinSafe and Top Allergen Free by the Mayo Clinic’s allergy safety rating system.
#5 Tech and Gadgets
We touch our technology more than almost anything else in our lives – and yet, we clean it so rarely. This means that our phones are home to more germs than a toilet seat – yikes! Force of Nature can be used to clean and disinfect tech items like remote controls, tablets, gaming systems, keyboards, computers, mice and trackpads and phones. You always want to spray a cloth or paper towel with Force of Nature, not the item directly, and turn off any electronics before wiping them down.
