Is OxiClean® Versatile Stain Remover sensible for the environment?
More than 95% of the ingredients are minerals, or break down into minerals and components that are readily found in our natural environment. OxiClean® Versatile Stain Remover breaks down into oxygen and soda ash
when mixed with ordinary water and uses the tremendous cleaning power of oxygen to remove stains. There are no toxic fumes. Like all cleaning products, it is not to be ingested.
How long will OxiClean® Versatile Stain Remover continue working after I mix it with water?
The cleaning strength of OxiClean® will remain active for 6 hours after mixing
. Dispose of unused solution after 6 hours by pouring into a drain or toilet.
It is an oxidizer that goes inactive once the oxygen precipitates (about 6 hours).
All that is left over is soda ash (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodium_carbonate
) that is not much different than common Baking soda.
Safe to use on SS and plastics.
