Biokleen’s® Bac-Out® Stain & Odor Remover Receives Top Eco-Excellence Award™

[Vancouver, WA] — August 6, 2013 – Biokleen’s Bac-Out Stain & Odor Remover has been named the number one Child Gear Cleaner by Natural Child World Magazine (NCW).

Recognizing manufacturers of natural and alternative parenting and pet products, NCW’s Eco-Excellence Awards honor the highest level of sustainability and innovation. NCW selected finalists from all around the globe and tested the products in NCW’s “Mom’s Lab” for performance, style, design, footprint, ingredients, and socially conscious endeavors. Readers then voted for their favorite products in 36 categories.

“We are hugely excited to receive this award, as products were both rigorously tested by moms and voted for by readers,” said Cindy Rimer, Biokleen’s VP of Marketing and Sales. “Because our mission is to create powerful, effective cleaners that never sacrifice personal or environmental wellness, this feels like validation. No one’s a tougher critic than a natural-minded mom, and natural moms champion our Bac-Out.”

The top-selling household cleaner in the natural products industry, Bac-Out Stain & Odor Remover offers a unique blend of live enzyme cultures, citrus extracts and plant-based surfactants to naturally digest and expel organic spots and smells, including those left by babies, pets, food, wine, and more. Available in 16- and 32-ounce pour bottles, as well as in a 32-ounce Foaming Action Spray, Bac-Out comes ready to use and biodegrades in 28 days. Additional Biokleen products with Bac-Out Technology include Bac-Out Bathroom Cleaner, Bac-Out Multi-Surface Floor Cleaner, Bac-Out Fresh (in both Lavender and Lemon Thyme), Bac-Out Drain Care and Bac-Out Septic Care.  


Biokleen was founded by former industrial cleaning salesman, Jim Rimer, in 1989. Concerned about the toxins in the products he sold, Jim studied botany and chemistry to blend his first mixture with just an oar and a drum. Today Biokleen remains family owned and operated under the vision of Cindy Rimer, Jim’s daughter, and her husband, Barry Firth. Biokleen manufactures each of the brand’s more than 30 natural and biodegradable laundry, kitchen and household cleaning products in its on-site facility, and using 100 percent renewable energies.
