Earth Day is in April. Right. Today is not Earth Day. Right. So let’s get back to business as usual, right? That’s right, we are back to business as usual – making every day Earth Day. Making decisions about products that are in harmony with nature.
In our search, we have found that BASIC-H2 is the safest, most economical, most effective non-toxic product on the market today. It can be a light all-purpose cleaner for glass, mirrors, counters, cabinets and floors or a super-powerful, industrial strength degreaser. But there’s more to BASIC-H2 than a pretty little bottle that makes thousands of gallons of cleaner! Here are some unusual tips for lawns, horses, fruits and vegetables. It’s about not harming the environment where you and your family (including 4-legged friends or farm animals) live and breathe and being aqua-friendly to everything downstream from you. We hope these unusual off-label uses for BASIC H2 will make your summer more enjoyable! It’s also great for camping trips! If you are interested, we can send you a flyer with more great ways on how to make every day Earth Day.
LAWNS – Spray your yard with BASIC H2 (approx 1 tablespoon to hose applicator full of water) to help control fleas, ticks, chiggers and mosquitoes. It will condition the soil to promote moisture penetration and deep root growth. It is good to use to spray down dog pens.
HORSES – ½ – 1 tablespoon of BASIC H2 in 5 gallons of water. This solution works great on Palomino horses. It gets their mane and tail sparkling white and doesn’t leave the yellow residue like some harsh cleaners. (If the above solution is not strong enough, add a little more BASIC H2 – it depends on the hardness of your water.)
FRUITS & VEGETABLES – Add 3-4 drops of BASIC H2 to water. Soak produce for 5-7 minutes, then rinse. Helps remove residues of sprays, grit and grime. Very nice for the produce you bring in from the garden. You can also “double-purpose” this water by using it as gray-water for your plants.
Have a healthy, green summer!
