Sachet Good Idea

Cleanology is rolling out the world’s first biotech wipe for tablets and mobile phones and also offering pre-portioned biotech cleaning fluids and floor cleaners in sachets.

Biotechnology uses enzymes to ‘eat’ dirt and bacteria. The tiny molecules access even the hardest to reach areas, and carry on working for days after application. Enzyme based solutions are gaining traction in the industry, yet to date no firm has focused on mobile device screens, which are often taken out of the office at night, when cleaning takes place.

Cleanology is the world’s first business to create and market a multi-purpose biotech ‘tech wipe’ which cleans and sanitises mobile phones, tablets and laptops with a moist tissue impregnated with the biotechnology cleaning solution.

 

Portion

Cleanology is also the first to address portioning, with the development of sachets which hold a pre-dosed amount of solution. When added to water, this creates a powerful biotechnology cleaning agent.

CEO Dominic Ponniah said: “Biotechnology is a fantastic advance. However, as with all cleaning products that require dilution, people often use too much product; they think that the more they slosh into a bucket, the more effective they will be.

“Using too much product is wasting valuable resources. An extra cupful of solution every couple of days might not seem disastrous, but multiply that over a year and across the 450,000 people working in the industry and the impact becomes significant.

“The cleaning firm ends up buying larger quantities of product and paying more to transport it, not to mention the environmental impact of extra journeys, waste generation and the unnecessary manufacture of products. To counteract this excess, Cleanology has introduced its own range of pre-portioned biotechnology solutions and wipes. Each sachet of multi-purpose or floor cleaner is sufficient to fill one bucket or spray can."
