Biokleen products combine the cleaning power of plant-based surfactants with extract of citrus and grapefruit seeds for a clean that will not let you down.

JOURNEY FROM FARM TO TABLE
 

Fruits and vegetables are exposed to less than clean environments as they make the long journey from farm to table. Produce are touched by many hands as they are picked, sorted, boxed and stored before being loaded onto truck and traveling to your grocery store where they are then handled by employees and customers. 

According to the CDC [I], raw fruits and vegetables can be a source of hidden, harmful germs that can make you and your family sick [II]. Some of these hidden threats can be Salmonella [III], E. coli [IV], and Listeria [V]. The CDC estimates that germs on fresh produce cause a large percentage of U.S. foodborne illnesses [VI].
