WPS1 or 2- Household Uses
WPS- sodium chlorite solution has many practical household uses. It can replace many household chemicals you may already use while providing a much healthier and less toxic environment in your home This can be particularly significant if you have young children at home, whose developing bodies and minds are extremely sensitive to toxins in cleaning products and other household chemicals.
Treating Mold & Mildew with WPS
WPS can effectively replace many bathroom cleaning products, including shower scrub, grout whitener, and toilet cleaner. Activate 30 to 60 drops and add to a cup of warm water. Use a cloth or spray bottle to apply the activated WPS and water to your shower walls, floor tiles, and toilet bowl. Let it sit for a few minutes, then wipe or scrub away and rinse off.
A strong WPS and water mix can brighten the grout between floor and wall tiles. You can also use an WPS and warm water mix on your rubber shower mat and shower curtain to remove mildew buildup.
WPS can also be added to your loads of laundry to wash mildew out of washable clothing and fabrics. Wet the mildewed section of fabric and scrub in liquid or powdered detergent onto the area. Then wash the fabric in warm water. Activate 30 to 60 drops of WPS and add to the wash water instead of bleach.
WPS and water can also remove mildew and stains on cement, brick, stone, and other outdoor surfaces. Use a wire brush to scrub WPS and water onto patio stones, foundation walls, or exposed concrete surfaces.
Kitchen uses for WPS
Did you know that studies have shown that the average kitchen sink and sponge contain up to ten times more bacteria than the average toilet?! When it comes to keeping the kitchen clean, WPS is a sensible alternative to both bleach, which can create toxic byproducts, and antibacterial cleaning soaps which create drug-resistant germs.
Use a mild WPS and water solution whenever you want to clean your kitchen counter, sink, sponges, or cutting boards. WPS is the perfect thing for wooden cutting boards because unlike bleach, it does not create toxic byproducts when it interacts with wood.
To keep your kitchen sponges and brushes clean, activate a few drops of WPS and add to a cup of water. Soak your sponges or brushes overnight every few days to keep them clean.
General Cleaning with WPS
WPS can be used all over the house for general cleaning purposes. A paper towel dipped in WPS and water makes a great way to wipe doorknobs, railings, banisters, and other regularly touched objects in your home. This is particularly relevant during fall and winter months when flu germs roam freely.
Next time you clean your trashcan, use WPS instead of bleach. Activate one teaspoon of WPS with one teaspoon of activator. Add this to a cup of warm water with a couple drops of liquid soap. Use this as a cleaning solution to scrub out trash cans, garbage and recyclable bins, tackle box, and any other container that develops a foul smell over time.
WPS is great for cleaning fish tanks. Add a few drops of activated WPS to your cleaning water the next time you clean your fish tank.
WPS and Food Preparation
WPS is by far the best food treatment product available. Using WPS to help prepare your meals is a powerful way to improve the quality of your food at home.
Use a mild WPS and water solution as a rinse and scrub on vegetables before preparing them for salads or cooking. Add 10 to 15 drops of WPS to a gallon of rinse water to rinse leafy greens, brush off mushrooms, or clean any other produce you prepare.
For poultry, fish, beef, and other meats, use WPS as a safeguard against pathogens hiding in the meat. WPS can be used as either a scrub or a soak to help keep your meat products safe to eat.
As a scrub, activate 5-10 drops of WPS and add to a half cup of water. Use this solution to rub firmly on the surface of a fish filet, chicken breast, steak, or other meat item. Allow the solution to stay on the surface of the meat for a few minutes, then rinse off thoroughly.
As a soak, activate 5-15 drops of WPS and add to enough water to cover your meat items in a dish or a pan. Submerge your meat items in the WPS soak solution for several minutes as you prepare other items in the meal or preheat the oven. When you are ready to use the meat, rinse it off thoroughly and drain the rinse solution.
WPS uses for plants and flowers
The next time you have a bouquet at home, or have clipped yourself an arrangement of flowers from your garden, activate a few drops and add them to your flower waters with a pinch of sugar. Your flowers will last noticeably longer.
Use WPS to clean gardening tools that you have used to prune diseased portions from your plants. This will stop the tools from spreading the disease to other plants the next time you use them.
If you have a houseplant that is diseased, wilting, or seems unhealthy in any way, try using a strong WPS and water solution on the affected areas. Activate six drops of WPS and add to a tablespoon of water. Use this to dab onto plant stems and leaves that show signs of weakness or disease. Let the WPS stay on the plant surface for up to two minutes, then wash the area with water to completely remove the WPS.
