Description

Concerns with Chemical Floor Cleaners:

The average household breathes in or is exposed to atleast 62 toxic chemicals. We are exposed to them from the phthalates in synthetic fragrances that are added to detergents, floor cleaners, and other cleaning products, to the fumes coming from stronger corrosive products we use in the home like oven cleaners and toilet cleaners.

 

Phthalates, TEA, DEA, triclosan, quaternary ammonium compounds, 2- Butoxyethanol, and several of the hundreds of ingredients that are commonly found in household cleaners have been linked to asthma, cancer, hormonal disruption, neurotoxicity and reproductive disorders. Although these chemicals are found in small amounts, the concern is for the long term: chronic exposure to this unstudied combination of chemicals increases the body’s toxic load.

 

Conventional floor cleaners depend upon active ingredients like Benzylalkonium chloride, Chlorophenol and in certain formulations, cresol, a common abortifacient has also been used. Benzylalkonium Chloride is a cationic surfactant, which is a very strong biocide.

 

Benzylalkonium chloride is a severe eye and human skin irritant. It is a suspected respiratory , immune system, gastro intestinal and neuro toxic substance. Concentrated solutions are highly toxic to human beings. Occupational exposure to Benzylalkonium chloride is linked to inner ear toxicity, middle ear tissue damage and asthma.

 

As it degrades in the environment Benzylalkonium chloride splits into Benzyl chloride, ammonia, dimethylamine and other molecules. Benzyl chloride is again highly toxic to skin and is an extremely hazardous substance that has been used in chemical warfare. Ammonia is an extremely hazardous by product, and is highly toxic via inhalation and is very dangerous on skin causing caustic burns.

 

We can see in this brief description that commercial floor cleaners can potentially cause a toxic load in the body and can be irritating to skin. Vulnerable groups like infants, toddlers and pets can be very quickly affected by these chemicals. For example, Benzylalkonium chloride can cause domestic poisoning in pets as a direct result of floor surface cleansing and pets ingesting minute quantities of this chemical from floors.

Krya Sookshma Floor Cleaner – natural unscented floor cleaner:

What is your alternative to synthetic, potentially dangerous floor cleaners? A completely natural, non toxic, wholesome floor cleaner from Krya is a better choice.

The Krya Sookshma Floor Cleaner is a natural  unscented floor cleaner that is made using 28 Ayurvedic herbs including including natural plant surfactants, Rakshoghna (anti microbial and anti fungal herbs), Krimighna (insect repellent) herbs and natural plant resins and gums and natural Saindhava Namak (rock salt). This product uses 4 very interesting plant resins: pure natural edible Camphor, Damar gum, Batu Gum and Gum benzoin (sambrani). This combination of herbs, plant gums and plant resins gives the product a very subtle fragrance and extremely cleansing and uplifting aura.

Please read our “how to use” tab to understand how to use our Floor Cleaner powder easily and effectively in your home.

Who can use Krya Sookshma Floor Cleaner ?

Krya Sookshma ,a natural unscented floor cleaner powder has been designed for homes with sensitivity . This includes homes with crawling infants, toddlers, and sensitive geriatrics , so no essential oils have been used . Instead we have used naturally fragrant and disinfectant plant resins to improve the cleansing ability of the product.

If your home has more high traffic, gets a lot more muddy and you don’t have small children or pets, Krya’s Sugandha Floor Cleaner is better suited for your needs. If you have a patient at home and require stronger floor cleansing also, Krya Sugandha floor cleaner is a better product.

Both Krya floor cleaners are all natural floor cleaners, completely safe and non toxic, are mild and natural and safe to use around babies, toddlers and the elderly.

Who should not use this product?

Both Krya Floor cleaners cannot be used for homes with pets as some of the resins we use like Edible camphor in Sookshma and essential oils we use in Sugandha like Citronella may not suit cats and certain breeds of dogs . We are working on a pet friendly variant but it is not yet ready.

Otherwise both floor cleaners can be used by everyone as suggested above. Both variants are safe for use by pregnant women.

How to use the Krya floor cleaner (Sookshma and Sugandha variants):

Conventional chemical floor cleaners are full of toxic additives

Conventional chemical based floor cleaners come loaded with highly toxic chemicals that can trigger respiratory illnesses, skin irritation and ear issues. They also add to the body’s toxic load and are unsuitable in homes with pets, infants or sensitive geriatrics. Because of the highly corrosive and dangerous actives used, chemical floor cleaners are a potential home hazard – they need to be stored carefully and safely away from infants and pets.

The Krya Floor cleaner: an excellent natural alternative to chemical floor cleaners

A Krya floor cleaner is an excellent, natural way to clean and sanitise your floors and avoid the use of highly toxic and suspect chemicals like Benzylalkonium chloride, Chlorophenol , cresol, Triclosan, etc.

Krya's natural floor cleaner range

In order to avoid the use of preservatives and synthetic fragrances, the formula is made as a whole, ayurvedic Choornam  / powder. This also helps us avoid the use of rigid PET bottles which are needed when you make liquid formulations to safely transport and store them. The formulations are completely biodegradable, compostable, safe in grey water recycling systems and are non toxic .

The herbs used are taken from the Ayurvedic pharmacopeia and use a mix of plant surfactants, anti microbial herbs, insect repellent herbs, natural plant gums and resins and pure Saindhava (rock) salt.  As we do not use artificial fragrances and chemical surfactants, the Krya floor cleaners do not have a strong odour and nor do they foam very strongly.

The product is made from natural anti microbial and anti fungal herbs that are harmonious and attempt to balance the environment discouraging only potentially toxic microorganisms from colonizing the home. The formulation is naturally mildly acidic and suits and is gentle on human skin.

Difference between the Krya floor cleaner variants:

Krya has two floor cleaner variants: Sookshma and Sugandha.

The Sookshma variant has been designed for homes with sensitivity like homes with crawling infants, toddlers, etc, we have completely avoided the use of essential oils. Instead we have used naturally fragrant and disinfectant plant resins to improve the cleansing ability of the product.

If your home has more high traffic, gets a lot more muddy and you don’t have small children or pets, Krya’s Sugandha Floor Cleaner is better suited for your needs. If you have a patient at home and require stronger floor cleansing also, Krya Sugandha floor cleaner is a better product.

1 review for Krya Natural Unscented Floor Cleaner – Sookshma (200 gm)

  1. YS

    I began using it when I was pregnant and there was a pandemic knocking on our doorsteps. I dissolved a teaspoon of sookshma to one mug of water and sprinkled it all over the house before mopping with a standing mop. The daily ritual of cleansing the home gave me a sense of calm and optimism during a difficult time. Now, with a young baby in the house, the fragrance of sookshma is reassuring. I know it won’t irritate my baby’s delicate skin or nose.
    It also has a mild effect of repelling mosquitoes.
