It seems like everyone is talking about gut health and probiotics (the good bacteria that helps your gut) these days. So of course, the food industry has been taking note. Based on the premise that health isn’t just about killing off bad bacteria, but also promoting the growth of good bacteria, this popular wellness remedy is now making its way into the world of cleaning products, too.
Enter probiotic cleaners, aka germ-powered cleaners that harness the power of “good” bacteria to keep your home sparkling (and naturally) clean.
Curious how a probiotic cleaner works, and whether you should introduce one to your cleaning routine?
What is a probiotic cleaner?
Instead of chemicals that kill off all germs in sight, probiotic cleaners are powered by “good” bacteria—in Culleoka Company’s case, medical-grade probiotics—which create compounds called bio-detergents that detox home surfaces and break down dirt and grime. As used in their Natural based Cleaner.
If you’re looking to boost your home’s microbiome, in addition to their all-purpose cleaner, Culleoka Company also has Drain, Septic and Sewer, Natural Based Bio Packs, and a Native Lands Probiotic Deodorizer concentrate that are all packed with probiotics.
How does a Probiotic Work
How is a probiotic cleaner made?
Apparently, making probiotic cleaner is like making kombucha (though we wouldn’t recommend drinking it). Kombucha, also known as mushroom tea, is a fermented drink with supposed health benefits. To create its friendly-germ tonic, Culleoka Company uses just four totally natural ingredients—purified water, medical-grade probiotics, beneficial compounds produced during fermentation, and organic essential oil. After allowing the bacteria to brew for over a month, they add in the essential oils, which leave your surfaces smelling as fresh and clean as they are.
Why should I use a probiotic cleaner?
One of the main perks is that probiotic cleaners are totally natural, without any chemical or artificial scent additives, which is ideal for people with sensitive skin, or anyone who just doesn’t like to clean with harsh ingredients like bleach. Culleoka Company’s products are also completely biodegradable, so you won’t be doing any harm to the environment when you use them.
Another benefit of probiotic cleaners that you won’t get from an all-purpose spray: The “friendly” bacteria in probiotic cleaners also linger on surfaces after you’re done cleaning, which means your home will stay cleaner, longer. (While you may not think cleaning with germs is an effective way to, well, get rid of germs, Culleoka Company regularly performs microbial tests to make sure their products are indeed up to par.) Additionally, probiotics add beneficial microbes, creating a positive live surface that continuously works to create a beneficial environment. These powerful bacteria work to degrade organics and fatty oils.
How do I use a probiotic cleaner?
You use your probiotic cleaner just like any other cleaning product: Just spray, let the bugs do the work, and wipe away. Keep in mind that the more often you use a probiotic cleaner, the better, since you’re essentially replenishing your army of grime-fighters.
It should be safe to use a probiotic cleaner just about anywhere in your home. According to Culleoka Company, their products are for use on a variety of surfaces like granite, glass, laundry, carpet, vinyl, plastic, tiles, and shower curtains.
