Frequently Asked Questions

If you are ready for the first true paradigm shift in cleaning since the invention of soap then you are ready for Bioneat! Bioneat is the innovative new cleaner that will revolutionize your thinking about cleaning and cleaning products! Our products can be used for virtually every cleaning job, big or small, tough or easy, with total safety. Bioneat products are tough enough to degrease a diesel engine, safe enough to wash a baby and versatile enough to do every imaginable cleaning job in between.

What is Bioneat?

Bioneat is, simply, pure soap. But it’s not just common soap. It’s soap with an attitude! Because of its unique formula, Bioneat cleans better than currently available soap, detergent or any other type of cleaner on the market. It is an industrial strength cleaner that’s still gentle and safe enough to use on a baby.

How does Bioneat work?

The secret to Bioneat’s unmatched cleaning and degreasing performance is in the size and the action of its component molecules. Bioneat has extremely small (colloidal) molecules called “nanoparticles”. These particles are so tiny and so active that they can penetrate the much larger oil and grease molecules. Like miniature jackhammers they can break apart those molecules into watersoluble, biodegradable components. Watch in amazement as oil and grease literally melt away with Bioneat. No commonly available soap or cleaner has nanoparticle action. That’s why Bioneat outperforms them all.

What’s in Bioneat?

Bioneat is a proprietary, biobased formula consisting of fatty acids, plantbased enzymes and minerals, organic alcohols and vegetable oil blended with water. All Bioneat ingredients are found on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) “Generally Recognized as Safe” (GRAS) List. Because of this safety factor, NO WARNING LABEL OF ANY KIND is required on Bioneat by any Federal, State or municipal agency.

What can I use Bioneat for?

Bioneat is a multi-purpose cleaner and is effective on anything and everything washable. Its applications are limited only by your imagination. Household (kitchen, bathroom, furniture, carpets, floors, etc.), automotive, garage/workshop, laundry, dishes, personal care, pet care, fruit and vegetable wash – the list goes on and on. Bioneat also has some surprising and unusual uses too. It kills many insects, mechanically removes bacteria and viruses, kills fleas, ticks and head lice, eases the discomfort of poison ivy/oak/sumac, is a paint/tar remover and also can be used to clean up toxic chemical spills. There are already hundreds of uses for Bioneat and a little imagination can create lots more.

For really tough jobs, can Bioneat be used as concentrate without adding water?

No. Bioneat concentrate will not work effectively unless diluted with water. Bioneat’s nanoparticles require water to be active. Each particle is hydrophilic (attracts water) on one end and hydrophobic (repels water) on the other end. The hydrophobic ends cluster together with those of other particles to form a negatively charged core. The hydrophilic end extends to capture water molecules and is positively charged. This combination forms a very strange molecule that looks much like a sea urchin with little spheres on its spikes. When water is added, these strange looking molecules start to move. With a little agitation (brushing or scrubbing) they begin moving very quickly, breaking down and cleaning up anything in their path. The more water you add, the more active they become. There are three other factors that activate and enhance nanoparticle cleaning action: dwell time, agitation and heat. 1) “Dwell time” is simply the amount of time Bioneat is allowed to sit on a surface after it is applied and before it is wiped or scrubbed off. The longer the dwell time, the more time the nanoparticles have to work their “magic” in dissolving oil, grease and dirt. 2) Using a cloth or scrub brush and/or using a foaming bottle to apply Bioneat Agitates the nanoparticles and makes them more active and powerful. 3) Using warm or hot water agitates and enhances the nanoparticle activity as well.

Is there anything that Bioneat won’t clean or that Bioneat shouldn’t be used to clean?

Bioneat can be used to clean anything safely washable with water.

Is Bioneat truly nontoxic?

Bioneat has been laboratory tested (for VOCs, SVOCs/POMs, Biocides, Pyrethroids, PCBs, PAHs, Organophosphates and Phthalates) and found to be absolutely nontoxic and harmless to humans and animals. It is so safe that even allergic and immunecompromised people can use it with complete confidence and safety.

Why doesn’t Bioneat have any warning on its label?

Because all of Bioneat’s ingredients are on the Food and Drug Administration’s GRAS (“Generally Recognized as Safe”) List and it is totally nontoxic, no warning label of any kind is required by any Federal, State or Municipal agency.

Should Bioneat be kept out of the reach of small children?

Unlike other cleaners, even many “green” cleaners bought in health food stores, there is NO warning on Bioneat to keep it out of the reach of children. It is absolutely and perfectly safe and harmless to humans of any age, even if it is ingested, inhaled or absorbed through the skin.

What would happen if a child drank Bioneat?

In a word, nothing! Of course, we don’t recommend drinking Bioneat, but in fact it is so safe as to be harmless regardless of amount that may be ingested. The most serious aftereffect of drinking a large amount of Bioneat would occur if one had just also eaten a particularly oily or greasy food. In that case, a person might develop a mild case of diarrhea due to the emulsification of the oils by Bioneat. Some people even use Bioneat for brushing their teeth or as a mouthwash. It is actually safer than many commercially available toothpastes, many of which have a poison warning label on them in case of accidental ingestion!

Why doesn’t Bioneat make a lot of foam? Is it really cleaning?

Bioneat is a low sudsing/foaming formula but don’t let that fool you! Even without the suds, Bioneat is still cleaning more effectively than other products that produce lots more foam. Nanoparticles don’t need to show off their strength with foam. They just clean like invisible scrub brushes.

Does Bioneat need to be rinsed?

Rinsing Bioneat from most surfaces is not necessary. Leaving a residue is desirable in cases where mechanical removal and suppression of germs and viruses is a concern. However, Bioneat should be used in weak dilutions and rinsed completely from any oil-based surface. Varnished or painted furniture, painted walls, linoleum tiles or any object or surface that should not be exposed to water, like leather, are examples. Also, when using Bioneat on fabric, carpet or upholstery stains, test clean an inconspicuous area first to determine if Bioneat will affect the color of the fabric.

Is Bioneat really biodegradable?

Bioneat has been laboratory tested for biodegradability and has been certified to be completely biodegradable in 30 days or less.

Is Bioneat an “antibacterial”?

Bioneat has been laboratory tested and shown to kill bacteria such as E. Coli and Salmonella even at concentrations of 30 parts water to 1 part Bioneat! However, FDA regulations require that any product labeled as an “antibacterial” must, by law, contain a registered pesticide. All registered pesticides are toxic chemicals. In order to maintain absolute nontoxicity, no toxic chemicals of any kind are added to Bioneat just to be able to put the word “antibacterial” on the label. But, Bioneat, as is, however is just as effective as most commercially available antibacterials and is still perfectly safe!

How can Bioneat kill bugs but not harm people?

Bioneat kills many types of insects but it is not poisonous to them. Rather, it affects their shells (exoskeleton). Because an insect’s exoskeleton is composed of oilbased molecules, BioNeat NTS’sTM nanoparticle action has the same effect on it as it would any other oil or grease molecule. It dissolves it. Because mammals, birds and reptiles are aqueous (water) based and not oil-based, Bioneat is absolutely harmless to humans and animals.

Isn’t Bioneat expensive? Why does it cost more than other “green” cleaners?

Bioneat is manufactured from the finest ingredients available. Most of these ingredients are known in the industry as “exotics”. They are so called because they are not produced in quantities large enough for them to be as inexpensive as other, more commonly available raw materials used for soap making. Therefore, the manufacturing cost of raw materials for Bioneat is higher than that for other comparable products, toxic or nontoxic. Although Bioneat may seem pricey at first glance, it actually is less expensive to use than most other comparable cleaners. More importantly, using Bioneat regularly instead of toxic alternatives reaps many long term savings and benefits.

Green is beautiful!

By replacing all toxic products used up to now and using Bioneat for all cleaning jobs, the home and workplace environment becomes as healthful as it possibly can be, while actively cleaning and at all other times as well. Regular use of Bioneat will eliminate exposure to toxic chemicals. It may reduce toxin related illnesses and conditions, including respiratory difficulties, colds and flus, allergies, and chronic conditions that arise at least partially as a result of long term exposure to toxic chemicals. That means fewer sick days along with reducing all the financial, emotional, physical, lost time costs resulting from being sick.

Bioneat can be used as a shampoo. I use hair dye. Will it take out the color?

While Bioneat is an excellent shampoo for oily, dry or normal hair, it will take out hair coloring. Cosmetologists love to use it on their uniforms to get out spilled hair dye and other chemical stains. Bioneat is also excellent for removing food stains as well.

A member of my family has cancer. Is it safe to use Bioneat on or around him/her?

Bioneat is the only cleaning product that should be used in any situation involving cancer or any other chronic disease because of its unrivaled cleaning ability, its nontoxicity, its biodegradability, its ability to mechanically remove germs and viruses and its ability to denature any toxic chemicals that may be in the immediate environment.

Will Bioneat help eczema or other skin irritations or allergies?

For anyone with any kind of skin irritation or allergy, Bioneat is the product to use for personal cleaning and for cleaning clothing and linens. Ordinary soaps, shampoos and laundry detergents all have toxic chemicals that leave a residue on the body or in clothing. These residues are absorbed by and chronically irritate the skin. Only Bioneat can be used without fear of irritation or allergic reaction, and will remove/denature the residual toxins on skin and clothing from using commercial cleaning and laundry products.

For Multiply Chemically Sensitive (MCS) people: Can Bioneat help clean up my home environment and auto interior from the building materials (Formica™, fiberglass, plastics, paints, fabrics, etc.) that are “outgassing” toxic chemicals?

Bioneat actually denatures toxins and drastically reduces the outgassed emissions of these substances.

Can I use Bioneat to clean automotive equipment/parts or machinery?

Absolutely! Bioneat is the best degreaser on the planet. Just keep away from any parts that shouldn’t be exposed to water (electrical parts or equipment) and be sure to rinse and dry thoroughly to prevent rust or corrosion.

Will Bioneat remove fish and other strong odors?

Bioneat is one of the best deodorizers of any kind of odor available anywhere because of its ability to denature organic chemicals.

Alcohol is an ingredient on the Bioneat label. Is Bioneat drying to skin or hair?

Alcohol is used in the Bioneat manufacturing process to catalyze the soapmaking reaction. However, most, if not all of the alcohol evaporates before bottling. Bioneat is both nondrying and, with its vegetable oil, is actually moisturizing to skin and hair.

Can Bioneat be used to clean blood and other body fluids?

Bioneat dissolves organic substances well and removes germs and viruses. It is an excellent choice to clean blood and/or other body fluids.

When cleaning the bathroom/oven/kitchen, the fumes are so noxious that I have to go outside. Is it safe to use Bioneat in an enclosed environment (like a bathroom)?
Bioneat is the only cleaner tough enough to get bathrooms and ovens sparkling clean and yet safe enough to use in an enclosed environment. You can breathe easy, without any more need to open windows or insure proper ventilation.
