BIO-GREEN ANTI-BACTERIAL DISHWASHING LIQUID
CONTAINS NO PHOSPHATES, NO MINERAL ACIDS, NO ADDITIONAL
PRESERVATIVES, NO POISONS OR BIOLOGICALLY “HARD”INGREDIENTS.
BIO-GREEN ANTI-BACTERIAL DISHWASHING LIQUID is a new generation cleaner with a unique mix of plant based wetting agents and foaming agents. The product utilizes a plant based acid as natures’ anti-bacterial agent – found in foods, plants, animals and the human body. These natural anti-bacterial agents play an important role in cellular and body metabolism and are classified as non-toxic (reports available for algae, fish, rats) and readily biodegradable. They are FIFRA approved by the Environmental Protection Agency, and notified at European Biocide Directive, BDP (98/8/EC) for PT 2,3,4 & 6.
The product is ideal for manual dishwashing and general cleaning with outstanding skin compatibility and a steady supply of foam. Prepared from selected ingredients that have been carefully chosen to maximize both ecological and operator safety.

GREY WATER USE:
Grey water regulations vary from state to state and it’s important to be aware of local state and council rules. Grey water is household waste-water from the bathroom, hand basin, shower, and laundry.
The components of cleaning products most likely to cause problems are phosphorus, salinity, sodium, and pH.
P – Phosphorus: Small amounts of phosphorus can be useful for plants, and it’s a major component of fertiliser. When it gets into waterways, however, it can cause excessive algal growth, leading to toxic algal blooms. The effect on your soil is varied depending on your soil type. Clay soils can deal with more phosphorus because the phosphorus binds to clay minerals and doesn’t leach away. On sandy soils, excess phosphorus can leach into groundwater. Australian soils are typically low in phosphorus, and some native species can’t tolerate high levels.
Salinity: All laundry detergents contain salts, typically sodium salts such as sodium carbonate, sodium sulphate, sodium phosphate and sodium silicate. Laundry detergents are generally highly saline, and frequent long-term use would likely harm your garden, unless it was spread over a large area.
Na- Sodium: Sodium in the salts is particularly detrimental not only to plants, but soils. It affects the soil’s permeability and causes a loss of structural stability.
pH : Laundry detergents are generally highly alkaline (that is, have a high pH): a pH higher than 10 helps dissolve organic dirt, such as grease, oils and food scraps. Strong mineral acids like conventional toilet bowl cleaners cause very low pH. Most biological systems prefer a pH between 6 and 9, and grey water with a high pH or low pH is likely to harm many plants and soil organisms.
BIOGREEN ANTI-BACTERIAL DISHWASH LIQUID has been designed to be ‘grey water safe’ – it breaks down into nutrients that are safe for the garden. It contains less than 0.6% sodium, is free of phosphate, and has a neutral pH (6.0). Upon suitable dilution with rinse water, the anti-bacterial agents lose activity and biodegrade, presenting no issues to septic systems.
