MACK has developed a unique range of biotech cleaning products aimed specifically at the domestic market. They are not only eco-friendly they are also extremely effective.
The products were originally designed for commercial settings, where high performance and good value are essential. In addition to this, many businesses need to reduce their environmental impact and MACK has been able to address all three of these requirements.
Most cleaning products on the market fall into two different camps:
- Effective cleaning but include heavy chemicals
- Plant based but not always very effective and can be expensive
Biotech cleaning products offer the best of both – they perform effectively, cost less and are not harmful to users or the environment.
MACK is proud to have been supplying the Lush Cosmetics production units with cleaning products since January 2020 and loves the fact that it is the only producer of cleaning products whose product is actually used to clean the factory it is made in!
About The BioPods
The BioPods are wrapped in a PVA coating which dissolves in warm (not hot) water. Each BioPod has different instructions, so please remember to read the box before use. If the product is to be used in a re-purposed bottle, the box will contain a pre-printed sticker to label the bottle for ease of use in the household. Other BioPods are for a single application such as cleaning a washing machine or drain.
In their diluted form, the BioPods have no health hazards at all, but in concentrated form, some of the ingredients could be a mild irritant so it is recommended to wash hands after handling the pods directly. Once dissolved in a bottle, the products will remain effective for up to 3 months.
The BioPods are ocean-friendly, suitable for septic tanks, palm oil free and made in the UK.
The Science Bit
So, how do biotech cleaning products work?
In essence, their method of cleaning is called ‘light touch; long term’. The initial clean is mainly done by using enzymes and natural surfactants which are coconut based. These enzymes are produced by bacteria and added into the MACK formula to give the BioPods effective immediate cleaning action which instantly lifts dirt, oil or grease and grime from the surfaces.
Their good bacteria get to work breaking down the dirt and grime which not only makes it easier to dissolve in water, but also gives the natural bacteria some food! This process causes the production of more (good) bacteria, more enzymes, carbon dioxide and water – so nothing harmful at all.
The sprays can be wiped off immediately or left on stubborn stains for a while. But even after being wiped these bacteria and enzymes will have formed a bio film and will continue to clean for up to 28 days. That’s why MACK call them ‘a million little helpers’.
It is important to note that many traditional cleaners, which contain chemicals, will kill the bio film that has built up. As a result, it is important, once you start, to remember to ‘Keep It MACK’!
That’s the end of the science bit but do head over to the MACK website for more information – www.keepitmack.com
Whilst MACK is still working in the commercial sector, it is now on a mission to make the MACK range a part of everyone’s domestic cleaning regime. The team is passionate about ocean and seas and supports Sea Shepherd, a non-profit conservation organisation that protects ocean life. MACK has achieved neutralcarbonzone™ certification and also supports the UK reforestation Tree in a Million program. MACK works with Out and About Dorset, a local business that supports the future of young adults with learning difficulties. Working alongside MACK gives the young adults responsibility, job satisfaction, further progresses their social skills, and increases their understanding of how to care for our environment. In exchange for their help making our boxes, MACK supports the club and supply any equipment & days out for the young adults.
