Q. I want to purchase products that are "environmentally safe." Many of
these products just aren't as effective as other products that don't make
those claims. Aren't there any products that can do both?
A. You don't have to settle for ineffective products to fulfill your
desire to help the environment. Descale-It Products Company has developed
Advanced Technology Formulas that use highly effective, biodegradable
Q. What does biodegradable mean?
A. The dictionary defines biodegradable as "capable of being readily
decomposed by biological means, especially by bacterial action." So,
biodegradable refers to the process of the product breaking down, by
chemical and biological means, into common substances found in the
environment such as carbon dioxide and water.

Q. What are "toxic" substances?
A. Toxic substances are used in many cleaning products to improve
their performance. However, these substances are harmful chemicals that
can cause serious physical injury if inhaled, ingested, or absorbed
through the skin. When they are used, products must carry applicable
warnings or instructions such as "Poison," "Do Not Inhale Fumes," " Avoid
Contact With Skin," and "Harmful if Swallowed." Descale-It products do not
contain these substances and yet our customers testify that they are
highly effective products.
Q. Is your package recyclable?
A. Our bottles are made from recyclable HDPE and have a recycle symbol
on the bottom to facilitate sorting at a recycling center.
Q. What is scale?
A. Scale, calcium, lime, hard water spots - all refer to the white
deposits that are left behind after water evaporates. Nearly all water
contains minerals and other impurities. Sure, water in some areas is
"harder" than in other areas, but all water contains some minerals.
Surfaces that are constantly exposed to water, like those
in the bathroom, are constantly getting wet and then drying. The water
evaporates leaving behind mineral deposits. These build up over time
resulting in a tough problem that most cleaners, and often even elbow
grease, can't cure.
Add these hard water deposits to the common problem of
soap scum and you have a hard crusty mess. Descale-It products are
especially formulated to tackle these tough cleaning problems. Try them
and you will be impressed.
Descale-It products are not recommended for use on natural
marble, unsealed grout, cement or wood.
