It fits well into Mrs Martin’s SaniKlo Cistern Block Dispenser, or can be placed in the toilet cistern on its own.

Mrs Martins probiotic cleaners are a superb earth friendly, biological, effective choice. Their products are (1) responsible, (2) intelligent, (3) safe and (4) environmentally beneficial.

  1. Responsible – because it contains only palm-free, plant based ingredients, and they offer ready-to-use refills and/or concentrated refills that can be diluted with water, to reduce single use plastics and waste overall. The refills not only cuts down on waste, but are also more economical.
  2. Intelligent – because it contains indigenous, safe microbes that produce the enzymes necessary to degrade dirt, control odours and break down fats, oils and greases.  And it actually works!
  3. Safe – because their products are approved by The Allergy Foundation of South Africa and all their ingredients are readily biodegradable to OECD 301 standards. Their products are pet friendly and child safe. It is non-carcinogenic, non-genetically modified and non-pathogenic.
  4. Environmentally beneficial – The probiotics and other microbes in their products rehabilitate grey water and are ideal for use in septic tank systems. It removes phosphates, nitrates, nitrites, ammonia from waste water and reduces chemical oxygen demand (COD).

Important Notes:

  • Probiotic, microbial cleaners take a few minutes to interact with the surface materials to “eat” / break down dirt, unlike their harsh chemical counterparts.
  • Mrs Martin’s products are intentionally formulated to be low or no-foaming. This is because foaming agents are harmful to the environment, dries out your skin, and do not contribute to the cleaning power or effectiveness of the product (although many people still associate “lots of foam” with “superior cleaning power”, this is a misconception perpetuated by commercial cleaning brands and is not true).

    Effectively cleans

    Love it. Placed it in my cistern and it cleans very, my toilet smells good and helped get rid of that urine smell. Just one flush got the toilet bowl squeaky clean in between washes and the price is so reasonable
