HOW TO USE POWERIZER
Powerizer can replace any of your general household cleaning products! It is a Detergent, Stain Remover and a Cleaner…all in one! All you have to do is add one scoop of the Powerizer to 16 oz. of hot water and stir until the powder is completely dissolved! It is best to use the mixture in a squeeze bottle rather than a spray bottle because when Powerizer comes in contact with water it’s cleaning power is activated which may cause a slight pressure to build up in the spray bottle which can affect its ability to spray.
Because Powerizer comes in a concentrated form, you can make adjustments in the strength and cleaning power depending on what you are trying to clean or how tough the stain can be to remove. Just add water in varying amounts!

Grout can be really tough to keep clean and stain free…especially if it is in a high traffic area or in a shower where soap scum can build up.
HOW TO CLEAN GROUT
- Mix 1-3 tsps of Powerizer with a 8 oz. of hot water in a squeeze bottle.
- Mix together so that the powder is dissolved…or mostly dissolved.
- Pour the mixture in the cracks of the grout and let sit for 2o minutes.
- Use a toothbrush and scrub the grout lines.
- If the grout still needs a little more scrubbing, add a little more cleaner and dip the toothbrush in a little of the Powerizer powder and use it to scrub the grout again.
- Rinse away with warm, clean water.
BEST WAY TO CLEAN TOILET
Regular toilet cleanings:
- Pour 1/2 scoop to 1 scoop of Powerizer into a squeeze bottle and add 16 oz. of hot water to the bottle. Mix and gently shake until the powder has completely dissolved.

- Scrub the inside of the toilet bowl and under the rim of the toilet with a clean toilet brush.
- Flush the toilet or let sit for a deeper clean.
Tough toilet stains or toilet rings:
- Turn off the water to the toilet (usually the water knob on the wall directly behind the toilet).
- Flush the toilet so that most of the water drains out of the bowl. The toilet bowl shouldn’t refill if the water is turned off properly.
- Mix 2-3 tsps of Powerizer is a small bowl and add a little hot water to make a paste.
- Scrub the paste onto the toilet stain or ring and let sit for half an hour.
- While wearing gloves, scrub the ring with the toilet brush or a hand brush in a circular motion to remove the ring.
