Using the cleaning tablets is easy – you only need the reusable SINI bottle and a tablet that fits in your pocket.
1) Fill the bottle with warm water.
2) Add a tablet and let it dissolve for 30 minutes.
3) Attach the nozzle and start cleaning!
The water should be hot, around 55°C. When using hot water, the tablet dissolves faster. It takes approximately 30 minutes for the tablet to fully dissolve in water. When using cold water, the tablet dissolves more slowly, in approximately 60 minutes.
The ready solution is usable for approximately a 6 months when it is stored at room temperature. The water quality and its cleanness level also affect the preservability. If you notice any changes in the solution’s colour, scent or consistency, we recommend you empty the bottle, rinse it thoroughly and prepare another bottle of cleaning spray. The products contain safe, food grade preservatives. Please note that if the cleaner is not used for a longer period of time, little build-up may appear at the bottom of the bottle. This is normal. Shake the bottle before use if build-up has formed.
The tablets keep in their packaging for 2 years as long as the packaging stays air and moisture tight.
Surfactants, such as soap, are an effective agent commonly used in cleaners. Anionic surfactants help remove small particles efficiently and foam strongly.
Biodegradable cleaners break down into smaller compounds, such as water, carbon dioxide and different mineral salts and are therefore environmentally friendly. The Nordic Swan Ecolabel guarantees that the SINI cleaners are biodegradable. The criteria for the Nordic Swan Ecolabel include biodegradability and avoiding the use of harmful chemicals
No, the SINI cleaners are not tested on animals. The products have been tested at our in-house test laboratory in Kokemäki, Finland on different surface materials. Our products are also tested at the SGS international test laboratory, but never on animals.
The SINI cleaners have been awarded the Nordic Swan Ecolabel, which means that their environmental impact has been evaluated and that the products remove tough stains efficiently. Products cannot be awarded the Nordic Swan Ecolabel if they are not as efficient as a similar product that has not received the certificate. It proves that the product is both environmentally friendly and efficient. The criteria take the product’s life cycle and its environmental impact, such as global warming, eutrophication and chemicalisation of the environment, into account.
No. The SINI cleaners have been manufactured from the best possible raw materials without any harmful substances. Sometimes it might be difficult to know which substances are harmful. We have a practical mnemonic: always avoid biocides. According to specialists, cleaners with biocides should not be used. Biocides are antibacterial and too powerful for cleaning at home. They often cause allergies and are harmful to both the environment and the users. Biocides can also indirectly affect the evolution of antibiotic resistant bacteria. Biocides are not needed for cleaning, because the cleanness level achieved by regular cleners is more than enough. Avoiding biocides is also beneficial for human health since biocide-containing cleaners remove the normal flora from our environment. Less is more when it comes to cleaning!
The SINI cleaners have been designed to be as suitable and safe for as many consumers as possible. The products do not contain any known allergens. However, allergic reactions are very individual, which is why we recommend that people with allergies and sensitivities test the products before using them on a larger scale.
When using a sprayable cleaner, some residue might occur on the surfaces, but the amount is very small. The cleaned surface can be wiped down with a damp cloth if desired. When the cleaner has been wiped off the surface, the surface is safe to use. All the raw materials we use are food grade and harmless.
We have tested the cleaners on different surface materials. In our tests, the solutions have not stained any surfaces. The most sensitive material the products have been tested on is a sauna bench made of light, untreated lumber. We recommend being careful when testing the products on sensitive and porous surfaces, such as natural stone. The cleaners are not made for cleaning textiles.
