Guide to Probiotic Cleaning

Posted by MACaldwell 11/01/2019 0 Comment(s)



We love natural cleaning products but this is the next level of innovation in natural cleaning products.


How does probiotic cleaning work?


Counter Culture, instead of working like most cleaning products which use chemicals to kill bacteria (both harmful or healthy), works by using beneficial microbes which attach and break down dirt, grease and odours and feed the good bacteria to create a healthy mircrobial balance.  


According to Counter Culture, some recent research suggests that when we clean with products designed to "kill 99.9% of bacteria", it is working against the natural ecosystem found in our homes. Counter culture uses 13 strains of live probiotic cultures which work to crowd out pathogens and make them become dormant. And even better, these "good bugs" continue working long after you’ve finished cleaning, because they are living organisms. 


And you may be wondering what keeps the bacteria alive in the bottle, well each Counter Culture formula contains Sea Salt and organic Brown Sugar to activate the beneficial bacteria, feed them, and keep them alive and well.


But does it actually work?


So like us, you may be a little sceptipcal. But Counter Culture have done microbial tests to show that their products are effective and their sister products have been listed on the US Federal Government's "Bio-Preferred" listing.


Are they safe for the home, kids and animals?


Counter Culture products are fragrances using essential oils and contain no harmful chemicals. They are non-toxic, non-carcinogenic and non-allergenic. 


Are Counter Culture products environmentally friendly?


I think you probably know the answer to this but we'll tell you anyway way. Counter Culture products are made from naturally occurring, non-genetically modified microbes and wherever possible, organic food grade materials are used to feed the bugs. They are biodegradable and safe to use, store, and dispose of.
