Total product concept – this goes all the way
Not satisfied with half measures, our technologists have produced a unique and innovative product for total washroom and toilet care. Its gentle, yet fiercely effective action removes lime, hard water scale, rust and waste products from all washroom surfaces leaving behind the clinging natural freshness and aroma of natural essential oils.
Here’s what most other toilet cleaners are made from
Most, if not all, “toilet cleaners and disinfectants” made for home or commercial uses are based on QUATERNARY AMMONIUM COMPOUNDS and HYDROCHLORIC ACID. The quaternary agent is not only toxic to marine crustaceans (it is used to destroy algae in swimming pools); it is extremely toxic to humans and is slow to degrade in both river systems and sewerage treatment works.
Quats (as they are called commercially), are described by their safety data sheets as a primary skin irritant and are dangerous when sprayed in eyes or on the skin. They are also non-biodegradable and therefore the majority of toilet bowl cleaners are non biodegradable.
Clinging action that does the job
We have carefully chosen ingredients that minimise impact on marine life, yet effectively do the job intended. To remove hard water, rust and lime deposits, we have selected two organic acids derived from bio alcohol and sugar cane juice ferment. These work with fury on stains, rust and build-up without harm to porcelain, vitreous tiles or stainless steel under normal use conditions.
For human waste, protein, uric acid and general under rim build-up we have tested and approved as safe coconut oil detergents plus the magic of D-Limonene citrus solvent. These have proven to degrade faster than the AUSTRALIAN BIODEGRADABILITY STANDARD. Its clinging action to porcelain helps it work longer without scrubbing – you just squirt on, and ZEST does the rest.
Imagine the combination of CITRUS PEEL EXTRACT and LIME working to increase its freshness in your washrooms, yet naturally working to clean the air. These natural products have been used for centuries to destroy simple and complex odours and they work.
Using the ZWAARDENMAKER PAIRS PRINCIPLE we have ensured a natural solution to heavily used washrooms and toilet odours. This Dutch process of odour elimination using natural ingredients in pairs, brings the latest state of the art technology to old style tried and proven remedies. The old and new work brilliantly together as you will see. Nature’s scents create a harmony and feeling of well being wherever they are used and they are low in nasal irritation.
Cleans the whole washroom – not just the toilet
Just because we use natural ingredients doesn’t mean it doesn’t work effectively on floors, walls, wash basins, even glass and mirrors. Its D-Limonene citrus solvent cuts through body fats and soap scum buildup in shower blocks and change rooms, in even the heaviest used mining camp or football club.
Here’s what we don’t use in this product
There are no mineral acids or phosphorous containing acids in this product (Hydrochloric acid, Sulphuric, Phosphoric). There are no petroleum sulphonates or hard detergents like quaternary ammonium compounds. In fact, all the cleaning agents (surfactants) are based on harvested crops and the acids are organic and biodegradable. This product is designed to minimise the increase of B.O.D. in waterways and will not affect the natural bacteria in septic toilet systems.
To improve biodegradability of this product, we have not included preservatives; only anti-oxidants are used to keep the natural oils fresh. This prolongs freshness, life and aroma of this product whilst it is cleaning all your washroom surfaces – and it biodegrades faster than products that contain preservatives. Please keep the lid tightly closed when not in use and store in a cool place out of direct sunlight. Not to be used on marble, limestone or granite.
