Spring Cleaning: How enzyme-based cleaners work around the house

IT’S SPRING Y’All! Open those Windows, air out the house and get to cleaning!

Everyone wants their house to smell clean and fresh, and there’s no better way than using enzyme based cleaners.

  • Q. Why use enzymes in cleaning products?
  • A. They get rid of the need to use harsh chemicals in your home. Enzymes are natural, non-toxic and safe for people, pets, and the planet.

Bacteria produces enzymes, enzymes work to break down waste particles into smaller pieces that bacteria can easily consume. Then these smaller pieces of organic waste, urine, grease, and stains become food for bacteria that is converted into carbon dioxide and water.

Added bonus: they don’t have the smell of harsh chemicals , enzymes are natural , non-toxic, and safe for humans, pets, and the planet.

Biz has enzymes to attack stains, washing soda, peroxide, and optical brighteners ( makes fabrics appear brighter, but can make darks look faded). Biz also has sodium silicate, which I believe softens water and protects the metal components of the washer from corrosion. I would only use biz in light colored loads. It is wonderful for odors. But I find that to get whites really white, you need to soak the garments in biz in the hottest water that the fabric can stand, and let it soak before washing.
