Why Use Concentrated Cleaning Products?

When you’re shopping for a new cleaning product for your business, you’re likely to find yourself having to decide between ready-to-use (RTU) products and concentrates. While RTU products can be convenient when you’ve got a small job, a specific task you’re tackling, or are on the go, the truth is concentrated products are going to be more economical long-term. Here are a few of the advantages of using concentrated products:

You’re Not Paying A Lot For Water

Ready-to-use cleaning products only contain small amounts of the active ingredients – which is good! More is not better here. However, that means when you’re buying an RTU product off the shelf, you’re paying someone for a lot of water. It’s much more cost effective to add water to the concentrated product yourself.

Comparing Costs, Concentrates WILL Come Out on Top

While it varies from product to product, a concentrate can work out to be less than 10¢ per bottle of concentrate, while a comparable RTU product can be $3 or more. So, while a concentrated product can seem more expensive from the start, you need to look at how many total bottles are produced from that one gallon of concentrate. The cost savings can be staggering.

Save Shelf Space, Save the Environment

One huge advantage of concentrated products is that they take up less space in a janitor’s closet. They also require smaller packaging that is used up less frequently, which means there is less impact on the environment. Use a hyper-concentrate, and these advantages are just increased.
