DIY Natural Cleaning Solutions: Tips and Tricks for Your Home

In our journey towards a greener, cleaner, and healthier living space, we continuously seek out products that are not only effective but also safe for our families and the environment. Culleoka Company's range of natural-based cleaning products — including the Multipurpose Probiotic Cleaning Spray, Drain, Septic, and Sewer Cleaner, Natural Based Scale and Scum Remover, Odor Neutralizing Spray, and now our latest addition, Sparrow, a botanically based surface purifier — are designed to meet these needs. Here's how you can use each product to its fullest potential.

Multipurpose Probiotic Spray

Our Natural Based Multipurpose Cleaning Spray is a powerhouse of cleanliness, suitable for a wide range of surfaces. Here's how to make the most of it:

  • Kitchen Counters and Sinks: Simply spray directly on surfaces, let sit for one minute and wipe with a clean cloth. The probiotics work effectively to break down organic matter, leaving your kitchen surfaces hygienic and sparkling.
  • Bathrooms – Bathtubs and Floors: For tougher grime, spray generously and let sit for a few minutes before scrubbing. The probiotics in our cleaner make it great for breaking down soap scum and mildew.
  • Laundry Booster: Add a small amount of cleaning spray to your washing machine to tackle tough stains and odors. Probiotics help in breaking down organic stains like sweat and oils.
  • Carpet Cleaner: Dilute 6 oz of the spray with water and use it in a carpet cleaning machine or for spot cleaning. It’s gentle on fabrics but tough on stains.
  • Boats, RVs, and Cars: Our cleaner is not just for home use. It works wonders on boats, RVs, and cars, both inside and out. Spray directly and wipe or dilute in water for larger surfaces.

Drain, Septic, and Sewer Cleaner

Our Natural Based Drain, Septic, and Sewer Cleaner is a powerhouse of probiotics and enzymes, perfect for a variety of applications. Let’s explore some specific directions for using this product in different scenarios:

For Septic Tanks:

  • Application Rate: Use 20 oz per 1000-gallon tank capacity.
  • How to Apply: Pour directly into drains closest to the tank or into problem drains. For best results, apply at night or during low usage times to allow sufficient dwell time.
  • Maintenance Dose: Use 8-16 oz every 4 weeks. Adjust the dosage up or down to achieve the desired results.

For Slow Drains, Disposals & Sewer:

  • Application Rate: Apply at a rate of twice the diameter of the drain (e.g., for a 4" drain, use 8 oz of solution; for an 8" drain, use 16 oz).
  • How to Apply: Allow the solution to dwell in the drain before flushing. This is especially effective for FOG (fats, oils, grease) programs.

For RV and Houseboat Holding Tanks:

  • Application Rate: Use 2 oz per gallon of greywater in the tank.
  • For Drain Maintenance: Apply 2-4 oz in each drain to prevent dry traps and for long-term storage. This is also beneficial for dump stations.
  • For Lagoons, Lift Stations, and Grease Traps:
  • Initial Treatment: Apply 2 gallons per 1 million gallons of water or the average bi-weekly flow.
