Arm Yourself with Enzymes

Whether you’re bringing a newborn home from the hospital, chasing after a toddler or rushing to preschool drop off, there is one constant – kids make life messy! While many people look for safe, non-toxic cleaning products, we also recommend another necessary, yet less well-known element – enzymes!

These tough workers are the key ingredient to breaking down and eliminating stains and odors. And what’s even better – they’re natural cleaning agents!

Learn how you can put enzymes to work in your home:

Q: How do enzymes work?

A: Enzymes accelerate chemical reactions and the breakdown of organic materials, causing your stains and odors to vanish.

Have a spill? Grab your enzyme-based product fast! They do their best work if the stain hasn’t set in yet. If you have an older stain, enzymes can still work their magic. You’ll just need to let the product saturate for longer and it may take 2-3 times to remove completely.

 Q: What kinds of stains and odors do enzymes work on?

A: They work on everything from food stains to sour milk, throw-up to poop, from a potty-training accident or diaper blow-out to marker stains and wine spills.

Enzymes are also one of the only cleaning agents that can eliminate ammonia, the stinky scent in animal urine. Have a sassy cat who preferred life before the new baby and is letting you know it? Enzymes will get rid of the cat urine scent, making it less likely that they will return to the scene of the crime.

Q: How else can I use enzymes?

A: Use enzymes on any water-safe surface in your bathroom to your kitchen including tile, tables, bedding, strollers, couches, carpets, clothing, or even car upholstery.
