When someone is seen in a store buying a ready-to-use (RTU) product such as Green Works Glass Cleaner, it is hard not to rush over and knock it out of their hands. RTU’s represent one of the biggest wastes going on in the world of green right now. This ready-to-use mentality is driven by the perceived need to save time and effort, but buying a concentrate is one way to save the environment and to save big money. Using a concentrate is not hard to do especially if you get a set-up kit – and it saves a lot of storage space when you have one product that can do 1,000 jobs.
Look at this picture…pay $12.15 for a 16 oz bottle of BASIC H2 and you can make over 3000 bottles of glass cleaner, hundreds of bottles of all-purpose cleaner and can even make a very effective degreaser compared to buying one bottle of Green Works Glass Cleaner which is a 97% water for $3.29. lt would literally cost you $3.29 x 3,780 to produce the same amount of glass cleaner that you can make from that one 16 oz bottle of BASIC H2 that costs $12.15 so that means it could save you about $12,400. Most of the time, people just stare at me when we quote figures like that.
The dilution ratio of BASIC H2:water to make a window cleaner is 1:6,308; all purpose ratio is 1:378: and heavy-duty ratio is 1:64. Clorox was so proud when they finally produced a GreenWorks All-Purpose Concentratewith a 1:48 ratio. Why do companies keep these low ratios? Because they can make a LOT of money selling you water.
RU ready to stop using RTU’s? Concentrate on concentrates. Basic H2 has a proven track record for over 50-years. It’s an official Earth Day product and it’s Green Seal Certified. All of that for $12.15!
