Finding the Best All-Natural Cleaner
There are better solutions for protecting your home against unwanted bacteria and viruses — and no, we aren’t talking about quarantining, thank goodness.
In March 2020, the demand for cleaners/disinfectants in the U.S. grew by 400% compared to the previous year. (1) During such uncertain times, it’s clear people are searching for the best disinfectants and cleaners to keep their homes safe.
What you may not know is that there are safer and more natural cleaning products on the market than the ones currently sitting in your cleaning cabinet. To help you find the safest cleaners, we first need to go through a process of elimination.
Ruling Out Chemical Cleaners
Do you have a cheap disinfectant that you’re in the habit of picking up from the grocery store? You may be thinking, “Hey, it may be cheap, but it says it gets the job done.” Sure, these chemical-filled disinfectants kill bacteria and viruses, but have you ever checked the ingredients printed on the back of the bottle? Chances are you won’t be able to pronounce all the names, let alone know what they all do. And even if you did understand what they do, the U.S. doesn’t legally require cleaning manufactures to list all ingredients that are used in their products. (2) The sad truth is that when you use these chemicals in your home, you’re slowly poisoning yourself and the environment. Here are just a few of the health issues you can get from touching and breathing in these chemicals (3):
- Hormone disruption
- Neurotoxicity (impaired brain function)
- Reproductive disorders
- Skin, eye, and airway burns
- Damage to your heart, kidneys, and internal organs
- Apnea and muscle paralysis
Ruling Out Some All-Natural Cleaners
Common ingredients used in all-natural cleaners are much safer for your health and for the environment. However, you must be realistic about what these ingredients can do. Take white vinegar, for example. You may have watched your parents clean with this strong-smelling solution. It probably broke down dirt and grime, but a powerful microscope would prove that it didn’t kill any pathogens. The truth is that chemical-filled cleaners, like bleach, are much better at disinfecting. (4)
So, is there a solution that disinfects as well as a chemical cleaner, but is as safe as a natural cleaner? The answer is yes.
Can You Say “Hypochlorous Acid”?
Hypochlorous (hai-poh-klaw-ruhs) acid is a Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved acid that is naturally 80x more effective than bleach. All of this may be news to you, but this all-natural cleaner has been used as a disinfectant in restaurants and hospitals for decades. (5)
The secret to hypochlorous acid’s effectiveness is its charge. Most pathogens and bacteria have a negative charge, and if you use a cleaner that also has a negative charge, the two will repel each other and the bacteria will remain on the surface. Hypochlorous acid has a neutral charge, which means that it attaches to pathogens with either a positive or negative charge. Once attached to the pathogens, hypochlorous acid can break down the pathogen’s DNA and make it harmless. In fact, various studies have shown that hypochlorous acid can neutralize the harmfulness of many different pathogens, including black mold, E. coli, Aspergillus, and Staphylococcus. (6)

3 Ways the Echo Clean™ Will Change Your Life
1. Two Disinfectants in One
The Echo Clean™ makes two cleaning solutions: sodium hypochlorite and hypochlorous acid. Both of these solutions can be created by filling the Echo Clean™ with salt and water and then running electrolysis.
Hypochlorous acid is a gentle disinfectant, so not only can it disinfect surfaces, but it can also be used to disinfect wounds and treat pink eye, too. (7) (8) Sodium hypochlorite, on the other hand, is a bleach-like disinfectant and can be used to disinfect surfaces and even remove mold. (9)
*We only recommend using hypochlorous acid to disinfect wounds, not sodium hypochlorite.*
2. Safe for Children and Pets
While common household cleaners like bleach and Lysol™ compromise your children and pets health with harmful chemicals, the cleaning solutions that the Echo Clean™ produces are sure to keep your home pathogen free and chemical free. In fact, the Echo Clean™ solutions are so safe that you can use them directly on children’s toys. Hypochlorous acid is a preferable cleaning solution for disinfecting your pets’ kennels, pens, and bowls.
3. Save Money and the Planet
The Echo Clean™ is reusable, meaning you can enjoy the benefits of a chemical-free home over and over again without overpaying. This also reduces plastic waste, which helps the environment. The Echo Clean™ is also made from Tritan™ BPA-free and shatter-resistant plastic, meaning it’s guaranteed to survive for years to come.
