GENESIS 950 INSTRUCTIONS
Genesis 950 Concentrate is one of the most versatile products you will ever use. It is sold in concentrate form so that you get the most product for your money. Many traditional cleaners are not able to be sold in this manner because the contents include ingredients that are too hazardous to sell to the retail consumer. For those chemicals, they need to be watered down to reduce the amount of toxic chemicals. Genesis 950 is a Green, eco-friendly cleaning product and is safe enough to sell without watering it down. As a result, customers can go a long way with the concentrate and can manipulate it’s cleaning power based on the cleaning task.
GENESIS 950 INSTRUCTIONS
When using Genesis 950, understanding how it works will help you choose how to use it for various cleaning needs. Genesis 950 is a surfactant based cleaner. As a surfactant, Genesis 950 needs water to activate it. Working together, Genesis 950 allows a stain to become permeable. Once permeable, water and Genesis 95o make the stain porous and can then work to break down the bonds of the stain. When a stain’s bonds are broken, it can then be flushed clean from the surface. Using science, stains are then removed without the use of hazardous chemicals. Genesis 950 can clean the toughest stains from food and drinks to pet stains and odors, as well as makeup, paint, oil, grease and countless other things.
Knowing how Genesis 950 works helps to understand how to use the product. Because it is a surfactant, it does need to be diluted with water for it to work properly. This is where one must break away from the common ideology that the bigger the stain, the more cleaning product you should use. A little bit of Genesis 950 goes a long way when mixed with water. Without the water, Genesis 950 is ineffective. With that in mind, if your cleaning task looks like it is going to be difficult, do not try to clean the area with straight Genesis 950. It NEEDS the water. In fact, there needs to be more water than Genesis 950 in your mixture. Because of this, there may be variations in how much Genesis 950 you will need for your job. Whether you are spot cleaning, carpet cleaning, power washing or house cleaning, get the most out of the product by adjusting the mixing ratio to water based what you are cleaning.
HOW MUCH GENESIS 950 SHOULD I USE? – SPOT CLEANING
GENERAL CLEANING WITH GENESIS 950
To use Genesis 950 as a general cleaner, it can be diluted with water at a ratio of 1 part Genesis 950 to 7 parts water. Genesis 950 is highly effective as an all purpose cleaner throughout the home. Clean kitchens, bathrooms and simple stains and spills. Being a Green cleaner, Genesis 950 is great for the kitchen as it will not leave behind residue or chemicals that could be harmful if they came in contact with food. Simply spray the stained area and allow the mixture to sit for a few moments to dissolve the stains. After a few minutes, wipe the area clean.

HEAVY CLEANING WITH GENESIS 950
When the stains are heavier, or more substantial in the composition, increase the amount of Genesis 950 by filling a spray bottle up 1/3 of the way with Genesis 950 and the remaining 2/3 with water. Spray the stains with the mixture ensuring the stained area is heavily saturated. With heavier stains, the mixture should also be given more time to soak into the stain. Allow the mixture to soak the stain for anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes. After enough time has elapsed, wipe the stain up. If the stain is really heavy (paint, makeup, etc.), you may have to repeat the step, or work at lifting the edges of the stain to allow the mixture to seep under the stain as well as over it. In the event the stain has lightened, and not completely removed, allow the stain to dry completely. Once dry, repeat the process.

EXTREME CLEANING WITH GENESIS 950
Some stains take a little more. In extreme cases, the ratio of Genesis 950 can be increased to a 50/50 mix with water. Use this option as a last resort only. Use this option only in the event that previous mixtures have not been effective. Typically, we advise people not to use this ratio because we want the product to last for you. We do not want people using a whole bottle of Genesis 950 on a stain that could have been removed with a lower ratio. Use this mix for really bad pet stains, extremely heavy build up or older stains. Prior to attempting to use a 50/50 mix, you can also pour a little Genesis 950 straight onto a stain AFTER you have tried removing the stain at a lower ratio. If for example you treated a stain as directed in the Heavy Cleaning procedure, and the stain is on the brink of being removed through that process, pour just a few drops straight onto the already wet stain and work the mixture into the already saturated stain with a towel or rag. Use this method sparingly.

To remove stains using Genesis 950 as a spot cleaner, first locate the stain. In this example, a rust stain on carpet from a metal file cabinet is used.
Spray the stain with a mixture of Genesis 950 & water. In this example with mixture used is 1/3 Genesis 950 to 2/3 water. Thoroughly saturate the area with the mixture and allow it to sit for a few moments.
After the mixture has set into the stain, use a damp cloth or sponge to wipe down the area. The stain should break down easily. Pull up the debris from the stain with the cloth or sponge.
Once the stain has been removed, allow the area to dry. In the event any outlines of the stain still exist, try to rinse the area more, or allow to dry and repeat the process once the area is dry.
BIGGEST MISTAKES WHEN TRYING TO REMOVE PET STAINS
There are several misconceptions when it comes to finding the best cleaning product for pet stain removal. People often look for a homemade carpet cleaner for pet stains in an effort to take care of the stain quickly. There are also a number of pet stain and odor remover products available in stores that are designed specifically for pet owners. However in many cases, these cleaning solutions may cause more problems than remedies.
- Vinegar – Too often, people recommend vinegar to remove urine smell. While it is in fact a good, natural cleaner, it should NEVER be used for pet stains. Vinegar is a natural acid with a pH balance of 2. The acidity does help it break down stains, however with pet owners that same acidic base causes other issues. While vinegar has a pH level of 2, urine has a pH balance of 6. Both cats and dogs urinate where they smell they have gone before. This is obvious when a dog is taken outside and he sniffs out a spot to do his business. Or, if on a walk, your dog sniffs a spot then marks on it. Dogs do this because they can smell the acidity of their own, or another dog’s urine. Cats do the same thing in a litter box. The odor of their urine, or odor added to the litter leads them to that spot. In the event that a pet is going to the bathroom in the house, chances are it is in the same spot, or general area. This typically has less to do with training, and more so with the fact they smell the acidity of their urine. They will keep going to that spot unless it is properly cleaned. Cleaning with vinegar does not remove that odor. Instead, it simply enhances it by adding another compound with a similar acidic base. When vinegar gets into the padding of carpet, it only creates a more profound odor and further attracts your pet to go to the bathroom in that spot. Your new challenge then becomes trying to eliminate vinegar smell from carpet! This can be further verified by The Humane Society where they agree that products like ammonia and vinegar encourage your pet to mark in that area.
- Enzymes – Enzyme cleaners for pet odors are hailed for their natural ability to break down stains. Enzymes are everywhere. The human body has them as well, most notably are the enzymes in the digestive system. These enzymes break down food to help the digestive process. Enzymes in the stomach react to food being ingested. While they can break down food, they don’t break down the stomach lining. Enzymes perform specific tasks based on their function. This is important to understand. Enzymes will only work properly if they are in the right environment to perform. This holds true with pet stains. Enzymatic cleaners might be able to clean partial portions of the stains, but they can not completely remove them because of variations in the environment. The diet of the pet, room temperature, previously exposed chemicals on the area being cleaning, expiration date of the enzyme and so on impact an enzyme’s ability to function. Nor do enzymes contain the ability to remove the odor. They do not kill the bacteria that causes the odor. In fact, many people will notice odors returning after a few days. Sometimes, worse than it had previously been.
- Household Cleaners – There are all sorts of problems using these types of cleaners. Some are notorious for discoloring carpet and creating an orange/pink tint to your carpet. Others might mask odor briefly but not actually remove the stain or odor permanently. Soap based cleaners can actually make the stains worse as the soaps attract more dirt and grime to the area. These types of cleaners leave behind a grayish tint. They can also be the cause of reappearing stains as the residue left in carpet can pull up dirt and residue from the padding. As a result, stains then reappear on the carpet surface.
