TOM: Hey. It’s Tom Kraeutler from The Money Pit to tell you about a new product out on the market that I think is a really neat new green cleaner.
It’s from iQ Cleaners. It’s a non-toxic cleaner. What’s unique about this is if you think about most cleaning products, they’re 95% water and 5% solution, and very expensive to ship. They’re also very wasteful but why pay to ship that water to your house?
These guys have a much better idea. They combine a concentrated refill cartridge with a cleaning solution in it with water that you provide yourself. You buy the starter kit, which consists of this bottle, and you add a cartridge to it. Then as you actually tighten it up, what happens is it releases the solution into the water.
After just a couple of minutes, you end up with 24 ounces of cleaning solution that’s a lot less expensive because you didn’t have to pay to ship it all the way to your house. It’s completely non-toxic as well.
It’s been third-party tested. If you’re wondering about performance, well don’t wonder. It’s really terrific. It does a good job. It’s available for glass. It’s available for all purpose versions. It does good for counter tops, things like that, and also there’s a bathroom version.
It’s a really neat, inventive idea which actually reduces your carbon footprint by about 70%. It reduces the plastic waste by about 80%. It’s really a good opportunity save some money and get a product that works very, very well.
When I say, “save money,” I really do mean that, because the starter kit, which is the bottle and the cartridge, is less than $4, and the cartridge itself is only $2.29 — less when you buy them in bulk.
It’s a great opportunity for you to save some money and get a cleaner that works. You can get the all-purpose cleaner, the glass cleaner and the bathroom cleaner. It has got a great fragrance selection: green tea, bamboo berry and nectarine plum.
It works very well. It’s got no ammonia, no bleach, or no harmful cleaning agents whatsoever. In fact it uses a corn or coconut-based surfactant and the bath cleaner uses a sugar-based acid to break down soap scum.
It’s available at and at Alice.com and at grocery retailers. You can visit iQclean for more information.
