There are so many different eco-friendly products on the market these days, and today I’m sharing my Force of Nature cleaner review.
In order to find the best natural cleaning supplies for you, your home, and your children, start by doing your research and trying out different brands.
I came across Force of Nature Cleaning while visiting a friend. It seemed different from any other cleaner I had encountered before. It was such a cool concept, making the cleaner yourself. So, I decided to try it out myself, and here is my Force Of Nature cleaner review.
About Force of Nature Cleaning System
Who makes Force of Nature cleaning products?
The company Force of Nature was developed by a group of people and parents who were successful in their own right. They had experience using their innovative, creative minds in different business fields first. With a lot of ingenuity and a little “being in the right place at the right time,” they made a product that is not only harsh on viruses but gentle enough to use on your children’s pacifiers.
That is when they created Force of Nature Cleaning, using science and simple ingredients to make a unique and creative cleaner.
What is it?
Force of Nature is composed of 3 simple ingredients: water, salt, and vinegar. That is it.
It is free of dye and chemicals and any unpronounceable components like many typical cleaners on the market. What makes it unique and cleaner than other products on the market is that it contains no preservatives.
It uses electricity to turn salt, water, and vinegar into an all-purpose cleaner. Plus, it kills 99.9 % of germs. It surpasses any expectation that the EPA has placed on anti-microbial disinfectants.
It is even used in many professional settings. Some hospitals, schools, and day-cares have even begun using this product because of their safe ingredients.
How does Force of Nature work?
Electrolyzed water is what makes this cleaner unique, along with its two other ingredients:
Hypochlorous Acid is a weak acid that forms when chlorine dissolves in water. It is the active ingredient in bleach. It is a natural chemical that is found right there inside our human bodies.
Sodium Hydroxide is a deep cleaning degreaser that is found in many soaps and cleaners. Although used in higher volume in most cleaners, up to 5%, it is only utilized as a fraction in the force of Nature.
How to use Force of Nature
This product is unlike any other green cleaner I’ve encountered while making an eco-friendly change in my own life. It made me feel like a mad scientist! This is how my Force of Nature cleaner review shook down. Once I received my starter kit, I opened it up to find:
- User manual
- Electrolyzer ( with power cord)
- 12 oz spray bottle
- Activator capsules
Once I had everything set up and plugged in, I began to read my user manual. I first filled the electrolyzer up with water to the “fill line” and returned to its power station. Then, I added the activator capsule to the water and waited for just a beat for that to dissolve.
I tapped the power button and watched the magic begin. It fizzed and bubbled, and according to the directions, this should take about 9 minutes. Once completed, I simply poured the Force of Nature Cleaner into the spray bottle and began cleaning. It is usable for up to 2 weeks upon creation.
You can use it throughout your household, on your showers, sinks, bathtubs, porcelain, wood, granite, laminate, tile, windows, and doorknobs.
Is Force of Nature environmentally friendly?
Yes, it is! Not only is the spray bottle reusable, but the capsules are also recyclable. The fact that it is made of such simple ingredients makes it even safe to breathe in and have in the air. The bottles are free of BPA and BPS.
Does Force of Nature disinfect?
Yes, it does disinfect. It is on the EPA’s approval list of cleaners that kills SARS -COV-2, which is the root of COVID-19. It also kills MRSA, salmonella, and listeria.
As such, it is rated as an excellent disinfectant. In fact, it is EPA approved to be used in hospitals, child care facilities, veterinary clinics, and more.
Is Force of Nature worth it?
Although the start-up price for the starter kit is more on the expensive side, you have to take into account the fact that you are at the end of the day getting more for your dollar.
You only have to buy the start-up kit one time. Then you simply have to purchase the activators after that and refill your own cleaner right at home. They claim that the 50 activator selection should last you up to a year if you are buying.

Other Force of Nature Products
Force of Nature has one nearly perfect product. Customers can purchase the starter kit, but you can also buy additional spray bottles in both standard and travel sizes.
Force of Nature vs. Dropps
Both are sustainable companies that offer a product that is unique and has its own “niche.” Force of Nature is revolutionary in its own right, as is Dropps. Both the first of their kind. Dropps detergent was the first pod detergent, and Force of Nature is the first electrolyzed cleaner for household use.
Force of Nature vs. Nellie’s
Nellie’s all-purpose cleaner does not disinfect, nor does it claim to. It is not as “clean” as Force of Nature either. It contains an ingredient called Laureth-7 that has toxic properties in it.
Read our Nellie’s Laundry Soda Review for more about them and their products.
Force of Nature vs. Better Life
Both of these cleaners are acceptable. However, Better Life cleaner does not have the ability to fight against COVID-19, nor any bacteria or viruses of the kind. The cost is higher overall, and their bottles are not considered reusable.
Force of Nature vs. Mrs. Meyers
Although Mrs. Meyers is not formulated with antibacterial ingredients, it is considered a safe cleaner on surfaces to prevent illnesses. Although Mrs. Meyers may not have the cleaning power of Force of Nature, it has gained its popularity because of its amazingly clean smell.
Force of Nature vs. ECOS
ECOS is designed to kill 99% of germs as a disinfectant and deodorize. Ecos is all-natural and hypoallergenic, like Force of Nature. However, Force of Nature beats them out in the cost and sustainability and the ability you have to make the cleaner at home.
Force of Nature FAQ
Does hypochlorous acid work against COVID-19?
Yes, once it is mixed with water, its chemical reaction has the capability to kill the COVID virus.
Is Force of Nature environmentally friendly?
It absolutely is, as it only has a few ingredients and a reusable bottle. It is not only safe on septic systems but the environment as a whole. The fact that you are only using one spray bottle over and over adds up over time, cutting down on plastic waste in the environment.
If The Capsules Are Just Vinegar And Salt, Can’t I Just Make It My Own?
Because there is a specific ratio that creates a natural cleaner, you could accidentally make bleach!
How Is This Different From Homemade Cleaners With Vinegar?
Force of Nature uses electricity to change the nature of the vinegar water and salt to create a powerful cleaner. It is not just vinegar in and of itself.
Can I Add Essential Oils To My Cleaner?
Adding essential oils reduces the potency of this cleaner.
Is Force of Nature as effective as bleach?
It has traces of chlorine in it that ultimately turn into hypochlorous acid during electrolysis, the active cleaning ingredient. This gives it many of the same properties and characteristics as bleach, without the carcinogenic elements.
Does Force of Nature smell?
It does have a light swimming-pool scent to it. However, it doesn’t hang in the air as much as bleach products do.
Final Thoughts about Force of Nature
After completing my Force of Nature cleaner review, I would highly recommend this product to someone who wants to switch to an eco-friendly product. It is a one size fits all cleaner that can be used in your dishwasher, washing machine, bathroom, and kitchen. When you run out, you don’t have to run to the store. You simply brew up some more.
I thought that the two-week shelf life would be a pain until I realized I was using this product everywhere, and it wasn’t lasting me two weeks anyway. I enjoy using this product knowing all the good I am doing for my family, pets, myself, and the environment. During my review of Force of Nature cleaning, I realized it definitely has a place in my house to help me get that deep clean. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to make the change and go green.
