THE NEW SCIENCE OF CLEANING
Professor Microbe eliminates only the harmful germs on surfaces without destroying the healthful, beneficial bacteria that provide nutrients and support the immune system. These microbes can prevent bacteria from growing back for more than 24 hours, and after two weeks of constant use, from growing back for nearly a week at a time.
How Cleaning Products Work
To understand how any cleaning product works, it is important to know that “dirt” consists of layers of films made up of grease, oils, fats, bacteria, germs and fatty acids. These are bonded to each other and to surfaces by amino and fatty acids. Conventional chemical cleaners remove only the top layers of the film, with the base layers left to collect “bad germs” within minutes. This is why your home and office are never really clean or safe! Professor Microbe attacks and eliminates the amino and fatty acids and continues working and protecting you and your family from the harmful bacteria for more than 24 hours and up to one week.
The Good Germ - Bad Germ Standoff
There are good and bad germs. Research has shown that less than .01% are harmful. In fact, most germs (directly or indirectly) are essential to our well-being and survival. They provide nutrients that fine tune our immune system, balance our metabolism, and ward off mood disorders and many other conditions. It does not make sense to use the toxic chemical cleaners sold today that claim to kill 99.9% of the germs we need, rather than the .01% we do not.
What Is in Your American Disinfectants, “Green” Cleaners and Air Fresheners?
Many American disinfectants, air fresheners and so-called “green” or “natural” cleaners contain ingredients that are anything but green or natural. Unfortunately, the American manufacturers of these products are not required to list their ingredients, so customers never know what is in them. Based on Prof. Microbe’s research below is a list of the most common chemicals found in American disinfectants, green cleaners and air fresheners. It should be noted that these ingredients have been found to cause lung disease, allergies, asthma and dermatitis and have been banned by the European Union since 2015.
- BENZISOTHIAZOLINONE - Human immune system toxicant that acts as an antimicrobial, killing off beneficial microorganisms.
- BUTYL CELLOSOLVE - Damages bone marrow, the nervous system, kidneys and liver.
- 2-BUTEXYETHANOL - Can be inhaled or absorbed through the skin, it can cause blood disorders and kidney and liver damage. With long exposure, it may also cause reproductive damage.
- FORMALDEHYDE - Found in spray and wick household deodorizers, it is a respiratory irritant and carcinogen.
- CHLORINE PHENOLS - Commonly used in toilet bowl cleaners, it is toxic to the respiratory and circulatory systems and dangerous to the environment when flushed into our water supply.
- TRICLOSAN - It affects the body’s hormone system.
- TETACHLOROETHYLENE - Accumulates in body fat and remains in the body for long periods of time, increasing the risk of breast cancer.
- PFOA - Used in stain guards, and upholstery and carpet cleaning. Long exposure has been associated with increased incidents of breast cancer.
- ALKYLPENOIS - Chemical used in the production of detergents and cleaning products, known to be an endocrine disrupter.
- AROMATIC AMINES - These compounds have direct effects on cell division that may enhance the development of tumors.
- SODIUM HYPOCHLORITE - breathing fumes may result in poisoning, especially if the product is mixed with ammonia, toilet bowl cleaners, rust removers or other acids.
The Professor's Ingredients
- AGP is a natural product made with the glucose from cornstarch and the natural fatty alcohol from palm or coconut oil. It is a natural surfactant. Because it is made from natural raw materials, it is very mild and biodegradable. It has excellent foaming performance and does not irritate the skin like harsh chemicals do.
- SODIUM BICARBONATE - is commonly known as baking soda. It is a water-soluble salt that boosts the surfactants’ ability to digest dirt, food residue and grease. Traditionally, it has been extracted from the ashes of plants growing in sodium-rich soils and seaweed. It also has a deodorizing quality.
- PROTEASE, AMYLASE, and LIPASE - are all enzymes that speed up the breakdown of proteins or the hydrolysis of fats or starch into sugar.
- MICROBES -(or microorganisms)
How the Professor’s Ingredients Work Together
Our food grade microbial enzyme blend is a combination of enzymes and microbes. Both are needed for effective, natural cleaning. Our blend undergoes the same fermentation process that occurs when beer, cheese and yogurt are made. It has a highly specific and wide diversity of reactions that optimize the professor’s effectiveness.
- The enzymes are the cleaning element. They are often proteins that speed up chemical reactions (that come from corn, salt, baking soda, sugar, distilled water). Their use has expanded immensely in recent years as the emphasis on ecological correctness has grown.
- Microbes lay down a protective barrier (after two weeks of use) so that harmful germs and odors cannot grow back for days. They dig down deep to the bottom of the layers of dirt or grease. They have often been used to clean up hazardous waste and oil spills.
