Keeping Things Clean the Safe Way

Most preschools use bleach to disinfect classroom surfaces. Effective? Yes.

Unfortunately, bleach is also toxic. It is a known carcinogen, and it can actually be quite dangerous to use.

SolUGuardAt Square Roots, we use a botanical disinfectant called Sol-U-Guard, made by Melaleuca. It is a safe, equally-effective bleach alternative that kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses, including staph, E-coli, salmonella, strep, Poliovirus type1, Influenza A, and Rhinovirus type 37. Sol-U-Guard meets state requirements for disinfecting surfaces and is EPA-certified.

The patented, all-natural formula uses thyme-oil and citric acid. It has a wonderful herbal scent that is much less invasive than bleach or other chemical cleaners. We feel good that even if a toy at the preschool is inserted into the mouth of a child, the Sol-U-Guard used to clean it will do no harm. It’s so safe, our students can even help with cleaning!
