Frequently Asked Questions
Where to Buy Bio Pac Cleaners
If you are a retail store, you can purchase our products from your local distributors. Not all distributors carry all products, so call us direct for any special orders. If you are a retail customer, your local health food store probably carries Bio Pac or can order it for you.
1) The Automatic Bowl Cleaner is basically a compressed bar of soap with a food grade dye in it.
If your child ingests the automatic bowl cleaner, call your doctor and have your child checked. Most children after even a small taste of the actual tablet will spit it out immediately and will have the taste of soap in their mouths. If your child really likes this product, we recommend a good doctor to help you cure this!
Some pets end up drinking the toilet bowl water. Keep your lid down at all times and provide water for your pet. Unless your pet drank a considerable amount of the product, they will suffer no ill effects. If your pet drank down the whole bowl, the animal will experience diarrhea and could also vomit. If you see any signs of discomfort in your pet, please call your vet.
If your child ingests the automatic dish, non-chlorine bleach or laundry powder, you need to take them immediately for emergency care and have them checked by a physician. The auto dish and non-chlorine bleach powder will cause a burning sensation due to their caustic ingredients.
Again, it’s the rare person who likes the taste of these products as they all have a heavy soap taste. Again, call your physician and explain the situation. You may experience discomfort, diarrhea vomiting and stomach discomfort depending on the amount ingested.
If you accidentally spray product in your eye, rinse thoroughly with water and call your physician. The product that will really hurt and sting will be the bathroom cleaner product due to the pine oil. Rinse your eyes out as soon as possible. The laundry stain remover and household cleaner will also sting.
We receive allot of questions about ingredients. We have information about the ingredients in our products on our website. Some general notes. Our products are not considered organic. They are made from organic chemicals, but organic used in the natural product industry and the term organic used in Chemistry are very different. Organic chemistry is the chemistry of carbon. Organic means food raised without pesticides, etc. Obviously cleaning products do not really fall into this category as all cleaning products are made from petroleum sources.
High Efficiency Washers
Our liquid laundry products are suitable to use in the new high efficiency washers. Use 1/2 as much as you normally would in a regular washer.
Using the Dish Liquid as an Automatic Dish Powder
This is a big no-no!! The dish liquid is not designed to be used in an automatic dishwasher!!! It will foam right out of your dishwasher and all over your floor. If this happens to you, dump salt over the suds in the dishwasher and this will bring the suds level way down.
