Green cleaning — a safer, more effective approach
But when it comes to green drain cleaning supplies, being “green” may actually be easier than you think, Drainbo® Natural Drain Cleaner is a blend of safe chemicals and naturally occurring microorganisms that create an all natural drain declogger.
Biological cleaning products make up nearly 4% of all chemicals used by janitorial suppliers, and since such products became available late in the last century, the market for them has developed to over $200 million annually at the distributor level, according to the ISSA.
While the numbers clearly demonstrate the business potential these products represent for manufacturers and distributors, their safety and long-lasting cleaning ability have made them equally popular among end-users in the food service, hospitality, and healthcare industries, as well as factories, schools, universities, jails, sporting venues, and other large public facilities.
Drainbo® Natural Drain Cleaner is like scrubbing bubbles
By combining safe chemicals for fast action with microbes for “extended microbial cleaning capabilities,” biological cleaning products not only clean like chemical products but also provide “after-cleaning” effects. Once the worker has finished his job, billions of tiny microbial “workers” begin to eliminate residual organics and continue to work as long as organic soils and moisture remain.
From small organisms come big ideas
The use of microbial technology was pioneered in waste water treatment applications in the 1970s. Because making use of what already exists in nature is the safest, most efficient method of treating industrial and public wastewater problems, scientists began to examine more closely how nature itself breaks down organic waste matter and converts it into the essential chemical elements of carbon dioxide and water. It is through this process that the components of our environment stay in perfect equilibrium.
With the advent of genetic fingerprinting, scientists were able to hone their ability to accurately identify and select microbial strains for specific, desired effects, and then formulate these microbes with cleaning agents to create products that provide the fast-cleaning power of chemistry with the long-lasting effects of enzymes.
This natural approach proved so effective in waste water applications, that soon applications were developed to treat problems upstream, such as drain lines, grease traps, and septic systems. The desirable side effect of odor control then provided the platform for developing applications to treat some of society’s dirtiest problems, such as home and commercial bathrooms, food processing floor areas, loading docks, and trash compactor pads.
Safer and more effective than harsh chemicals
In addition to greater effectiveness compared with chemical products, the use of biological cleaning technologies alleviates the regulatory headaches of dealing with hazardous substances. Although biological cleaners that use naturally occurring microbes are not regulated in the United States, responsible developers of these technologies submit all microbial strains to extensive safety testing before incorporating them into full product formulations. Microbes used in Canada must be included on the Canada Environmental Protection Agency’s domestic substances list.
Now that you understand the benefits of using biological cleaners, how can you find them?
It can often be difficult to be sure the all natural cleaning products you’re using are biologically based. To be sure that your favorite “green” household products are indeed what they say, read the ingredients and learn about products you use. If the products don’t already incorporate active microbial cultures, you may want to try some that do and experience first hand the benefits of natural biological technology to replace chemicals. You’ll find that being “green” is easy with Drainbo products.
Great 2-in-1 product for stains and smells
"We regularly get pet stains on our carpet
so I tried using the Drainbo on them. I'm typically skeptical about ""natural"" cleaning products because I feel like you need the chemicals to actually get clean it actually eliminates them. They use some type of natural enzyme formula that breaks down the odors and in about 10 minutes
Easy Cleaning of your RV tanks
"This is absolutely the greatest RV tank treatment I have ever used in my 5+ years of RVing. It is amazing stuff and controls odor like I've never smelled before. I was absolutely amazed at the list of ingredients that will help to clean my holding tanks and you will be too. But
you know what? This stuff actually works! And what's more it's cheaper than all the other stuff that I have used in the past. Works in your gray tank as well and if you know anything about gray tanks they can stink as bad or even more than black tanks. So
Makes removing stains and odor simple!
"I have tried a variety of stain and odor remover over the years. We have had numerous pets and have had to clean the carpets and walls from mishaps with our pets. Drainbo is easy to apply and

"I only used this once last year but I was happy with the performance. This worked to keep the system odor free for the weekend I used it and the clean up and emptying of the system was more pleasant. I do not know for sure that longer term use will be as pleasant
but based on the performance for the one weekend I can state with a lot of confidence that it will work great. I am getting another bottle for this season. Be sure to shake it well before each use." via Homedepot.com

"To my surprise Drainbo works! Having recently used other chemicals to clear the drains in my kitchen, I used this in my slow running bathroom sink with excellent results.

if you don't clean the tank out every time. You get 3-4 uses. Seems to work well navycamarogirl
Works well, does not smell like perfume
"This product works well
the nice part is it does not smell like a perfume making the RV smell like a portable toilet at the fair. This product has been in my holding tanks just sitting there for about a month now. To see how this work I pulled one of the stoppers out of the drain that was pretty nasty. After 2 days there are signs of the residual nasty stuff being eaten away." via Homedepot.com
Super Easy To Use
"This is a very easy cleaner to add to your disposal/waste/tank system. I like it because it comes in liquid form and you don't have to deal with any of the dissoluble packets. You just follow the treatment directions and drop into your waste/tank areas. It is a half gallon in size
so you will get more than a few uses out of it. It says you get ten treatments but I like it because I feel safe with it if it ever touches my hands....just wash them thoroughly. I am looking forward to using it again in the spring when travel season starts up again." tvs75
Simply took away the odor and stain with the quickness
"Just as the label states Stain & Odor Eliminator
it really does work. Once I sprayed the stain on the carpet the smell was no longer noticeable. Be sure to shake before use. I can not make out the smell of the Drainbo spray smell. It didn't bother me nor has a pleasant smell. I'm surprised that this product work really well and I would recommend to any pet owners with carpet as well. Be sure to follow the directions on how to apply the spray on stained areas." via Homedepot.com
Looks like it’s working
"There was a small stain on the carpet. Not exactly sure what it was but it was a small yellow and orange stain. Sprayed the stain and used a small sponge to wipe it up. It worked

My stain and stink eliminator search is over. Excellent product
across the board. It is so good
in fact this is the BEST!" Bernie
It really works
"If you have pet stains
don't bother with anything else. Every traditional carpet cleaning solution I use appears to work well until the carpet dries. Then the stain comes back. I have heard of enzyme treatments before but never gave them a shot. I'm really glad I did. This actually worked. The stain was removed and did not reappear. This can also be used in a carpet cleaner if you have a large area to clean up.
“Just what the potty needed!”

Best Spot Cleaner
"Drainbo Stain and Odor Eliminator works quickly in just ten minutes. I had little spots from wet stains in the carpeting that were randomly located throughout the house and I didn't have time to shampoo the entire floor. I used Drainbo's cleaner and it works beautifully.
The odor neutralizer really takes away lingering stinky spots and it is 100% safe to use. I love it.“
"Wow what a great product this is. It is so easy to use. You just spray it on where ever you need to get rid of stains and/or odors. After I sprayed the Drainbo on the areas that I needed to be cleaned and also get rid of the smell
I let it sit for awhile. I then sopped it up and it not only cleaned the stains but the odors too. I really think this product is worth it." via Homedepot.com
"Drainbo stain & odor eliminator is a natural alternative to the chemical- based products offered by other manufacturers. Good start.
We had a 1-day old dog urine stain on a carpet. We already tried to clean the stain with water & soap
and sprayed it with the fabric odor thing that is supposed to eliminate odors. The next day you could still smell it when you stick your nose close enough. We used two sprays of Drainbo and an hour later we can smell nothing. I agree that it eliminates odors and not just masks them. It Continue Reading
but it smells like something fresh & natural. The product's odor goes away after 5-10 minutes.
I usually give “”4 stars”” to products that work well
and ""5 stars"" to exceptional products. This is closer to exceptional so I'll give it 5.
Works very well
"We are pet lovers and have rescued several cats that my wife adores. That being said
there is always a need for a little clean up in aisle 6 so to speak when one of the cats has an accident and hair balls on the carpet. We have found that this works as well as several specialized pet products when we have used on the carpets. Removes spots and stains very well and we cannot detect any trace of any odors after using the Drainbo. We are well satisfied." via Homedepot.com
"This Drainbo Stain and Odor Eliminator tackles an old problem with pets
namely that if you have pets at least to some degree. Our dog is over 15 now and this sort of thing is occasionally inevitable. I scrub the carpeting with a shampooer often but in between carpet shampoos I've found this product to be the best. It smells pleasant
Eliminator without the Smell
"Nice product and it's much like most
spray on one was fresh and the other some weeks old and both cleaned up very well lifting the discoloration. They list a few ways to use the Drainbo from direct spraying to using 2 oz/gal in your carpet cleaner. I like the fact that the cleaner continues to eliminate odor well after your done wiping up the stain with its active enzymes.
I have the fall home carpet cleaning coming up and I plan to pretreat the traffic areas and spots with Drainbo and well as mixing it in.“
South Hill, WA 5
Great for Multiple Uses
"I used Drainbo stain and odor eliminator for a different purpose. Even though Drainbo is packaged as stain and odor eliminator that removes new and set-in pet stains & odor it also states it is effective on bedding
clothing and more and can be used in extraction machines. I used to wash a bed pad that is used by an aging parent Wilson
A natural stain remover
"What I like about this Drainbo stain cleaner is that is uses enzymes instead of detergents to eliminate carpet stains. You spray it on the stained area and it does all of the work. There is no scrubbing needed.
It is a mixture of enzymes that actually eat the waste just like in septic tanks. I have an older cat that has accidents as well as coughing up hairballs. This product does a great job of eliminating the waste material from your carpet and would highly recommend it.“

“Had me at natural!”
"""Had me at natural!""
I was using a major brand drain cleaner with less than stellar results. I stumbled upon this brand and saw that it was a decent price for a natural alternative – so I thought
""why not!"" IT WAS AWESOME! Cleared up my drains
smelled nice Sam
Not in to all natural, but this works great. Best I have tried.
"I tried the spray with the best reviews I could find and tried on my old carpet stain (dog urine). It works
but the stain keeps coming back. It will be clean beige for a day or so but then slowly turns gold again. For awhile I thought it was my eyes I did some research online about cleaners and found this one. I have used the septic treatments with ""good"" bacteria so I knew that they eat the gunk in the septic system. Seemed to make sense they might eat the pet waste in a stain. According to other reviews this product works better because the bacteria keeps eating until nothing is left
I love it

It works great for me

it does a great job on my sinks and bath." via Amazon.com

The desirable side effect of odor control then provided the platform for developing applications to treat some of society’s dirtiest problems, such as home and commercial bathrooms, food processing floor areas, loading docks, and trash compactor pads. Safer and more effective than harsh chemicals In addition to greater effectiveness compared with chemical products, the use of biological cleaning technologies alleviates the regulatory headaches of dealing with hazardous substances. Although biological cleaners that use naturally occurring microbes are not regulated in the United States, responsible developers of these technologies submit all microbial strains to extensive safety testing before incorporating them into full product formulations. Microbes used in Canada must be included on the Canada Environmental Protection Agency’s domestic substances list. Now that you understand the benefits of using biological cleaners, how can you find them? It can often be difficult to be sure the all natural cleaning products you’re using are biologically based. To be sure that your favorite “green” household products are indeed what they say, read the ingredients and learn about products you use. If the products don’t already incorporate active microbial cultures, you may want to try some that do and experience first hand the benefits of natural biological technology to replace chemicals. You’ll find that being “green” is easy with Drainbo products.
