Oasis Biocompatible Cleaners
Congratulations on choosing Oasis biocompatible laundry detergent, a superconcentrated, effective cleaner of the highest quality.
The Oasis products are now available on Amazon.
Something “bio-degradable” breaks down into pieces. These pieces may or may not be good for the environment. “Biocompatible” means the pieces are beneficial or not harmful to an environment.
Biocompatibility varies with the environment and what’s good for the water may not be good for the land. Most cleaners, even “eco” cleaners, do not consider the special sensitivities of plants and soils and they are not designed for treatment and disposal in lakes and streams. Oasis Biocompatible cleaners are not only non-harmful for plants and soil, they biodegrade entirely into plant nutrients!
Oasis Biocompatible Laundry Detergent is designed and tested to be biocompatible with plants and soil, as well as for the disposal of treated wastewater in aquatic ecosystems. It is the best choice for septic tank disposal and the only choice for reusing wash water for irrigating plants-the most ecological alternative. Disposed of in a septic tank or greywater system, microorganisms and plant roots will biodegrade Oasis, removing the break down products and leave only pure water behind.
Use 1/8 to 1/4 cup. Always measure detergent to avoid waste. For best results, sort laundry by fabric type, color and the degree of soiling. Oasis is effective in hot or cold water.
Spots may be pre-treated with full-strength Oasis. However, not all dyes are color fast, so always do a test where it won’t show first!
Use one teaspoon per two gallons of water.
Oasis Laundry Detergent may be used as a heavy duty all purpose cleaner for floors, toilet bowls, etc. Try a teaspoon of Oasis to a gallon of hot water.
Using cold water instead of hot save 80% of the energy used to do laundry. Drying on a clothesline save 100% of the energy used for drying, and drying uses more energy than washing in hot water! Gas dryers are about twice as efficient as electric. Hydrogen peroxide bleach is twice as expensive and half as effective as chlorine, but ecologically superior for plants and soils in a grey water system. Most chlorine bleach will be oxidized and rendered harmless when used in a normal septic or water water system. However, if you are using a greywater system, you don’t want to use chlorine bleach! For best results, add hydrogen peroxide bleach at the beginning of the rinse cycle.
