Genesis 950 Green Cleaner

Looking for the best way to remove pet stains? The best way to clean carpets? Or are you just looking for something to get out stains? Genesis 950 does all this and more. Genesis 950 is a green, all purpose, surfactant based cleaner that works better than any cleaning product.

As a surfactant based cleaner, Genesis 950 works with water to make a stain water soluble. When a stain becomes water soluble, it can then be broken down and in turn, flushed from the surface. Genesis 950 is sold as a concentrate. This means you are getting solid product and not a watered down cleaner. Many household cleaners cold contain up to 99% water. Typically, this is because the chemistry used to create those cleaners is unsafe and can only be sold to consumers when diluted. This is not true for Genesis 950. It is safe enough to sell as a concentrate.

Because Genesis 950 is sold in concentrate, it is an extremely economical choice for cleaning. For general cleaning, it is recommended that Genesis 950 be mixed at a ratio of 1 part Genesis 950 to 7 parts water. When used in this fashion, a 1 quart bottle essentially gives you 7 quarts of cleaning solution. With this breakdown, comparing the cost of 1 quart of Genesis 950 to 7 bottles of another cleaner really shows the saving in this concentrate.

With Genesis 950 as a general cleaner, the most tiresome household cleaning tasks become a breeze. From the kitchen to the bathroom, Genesis 950 can break down stains and remove them from the surfaces. Whether it's tile, ceramic, granite, stove tops, sinks,bath tubs or toilets, using Genesis 950 can breakdown tough stains when mixed at the 1 to 7 ratio.



Genesis 950 is also the best stain remover for pet owners. Not only does Genesis 950 remove pet stains, but it also removes odors. When applied to pet stains, Genesis 950 makes them water soluble. This in turn allows the stain to be broken down. Because Genesis 950 also contains antibacterial agents, it kills bacteria which causes odors. Other cleaners might be able to neutralize odors for a brief period of time, but Genesis 950 actually removes the odors by deodorizing them. This is extremely important when it comes to cleaning pet stains. Pets often return to a spot where they smell urine. Likewise, if a cleaning product contains vinegar or ammonia, pets will also return to that spot. Ammonia and vinegar have a pH level similar to levels found in urine. As a result, that odor invites them back to that spot. In cleaning pet stains, it is very important the area is properly cleaned and the smell is completely removed. Vomit stains can also be difficult pet stains to remove, particularly because of the dye used in pet food. Genesis 950 is able to break down these types of stains. Genesis 950 is the best way to remove all types of pet stains and odors.


While it is recommended that for general cleaning Genesis 950 be mixed at a 1 to 7 ratio for general cleaning, the ratio can be increased for pet stains. The highest mixing ratio used should be a 50/50 mix of Genesis 950 and water. Because it is water that activates the Genesis 950, having more Genesis 950 in the mixture than water would reduce it's ability to properly break down stains. Severe pet stains can typically be removed with a mixture of 1/3 Genesis 950 to 2/3 water. When these types of stains are in carpet, it is best to use the mixture in a carpet cleaning machine. This will allow the mixture to effectively clean the padding as well as the surface. Pet stains in the padding can destroy carpet, create repeat behavior or enhance foul odors if they are not properly cleaned. 

Genesis 950 is also an AMAZING cleaner for carpet cleaning. When used in a carpet cleaning machine, Genesis 950 can make carpet look and smell like it was professionally cleaned. In fact there are several professionals who use Genesis 950. Because of the way it breaks down stains, it is extremely effective at flushing dirt, dust, pollen, mud and other debris out of carpet. When used in a machine, it is also able to clean the padding. This is beneficial as the Genesis 950 will kill any bacteria or mold growth that might be below the surface. In doing so, it not only cleans, but it also makes your home healthier by removing allergons and dander. This calls for easier breathing, less allergy related issues, and healthier skin.




Most importantly, Genesis 950 is safe. It is a green, environmentally friendly cleaner that won't harm you, your family or your pets. Even in concentrate form, Genesis 950 has a low, safe VOC level. There are no harsh chemicals. This is also beneficial to your clothing, carpet, rugs and upholstery or whatever other surface you are cleaning. Several household cleaners can actually bleach, discolor or damage your carpet. Genesis 950 will not cause any of these issues. Some cleaners actually make your carpet dirtier because of their soap base. Soap attracts dirt. Genesis 950 does not.

Fall Carpet Cleaning - How To Clean Your Carpets DIY

Fall Carpet Cleaning

Best Carpet Cleaning Shampoo



Fall is upon us and this is one of the best times to clean your carpet. During summer, your carpet sees a lot of traffic. Kids running in and out, pets tracking in dirt and mud, humidity increasing the chance for bacteria growth in the carpet padding and dust and pollen settling in the fibers. These are just some of the things you might have dealt with over the summer in addition to accidents and spills. With the temperature cooling and the humidity dropping, this is the best time of year to freshen up your carpet.

Professional carpet cleaning is one option, however it is expensive. Some companies can cost over $100 for one room. On top of that, they might add charges for various levels of cleaning. In addition to hefty price tags, there are scheduling conflicts. You have to make yourself available based on their schedule. What's even more troubling is not knowing exactly what they are using to clean your carpets. Is it safe? Will it damage your carpet? What happens if an area doesn't get cleaned to your expectations? In some cases, the stains may appear to be removed, only to have them reappear in the future.

Carpet cleaning can easily be done by yourself for less the cost of a professional and with better results. Genesis 950 is the best carpet cleaner for general cleaning as well as targeting old or hard setting stains. Genesis 950 is a cleaner unlike any other. It is a surfactant based, green cleaner. Being a surfactant, it works with water to be absorbed by the stains and break them down. Once a stain is broken down, it can be flushed from the surface. Genesis 950 does more than just remove stains. It also has antibacterial agents which kill germs that can cause illness or foul odors. 

The best way to clean carpets with Genesis 950 is by using it in a carpet cleaning machine or steam cleaner. There are several different brands of steam cleaners available. They can also be rented from local businesses. Many manufacturers of these machines also offer various lines of cleaning products, however none have the cleaning power of Genesis 950. 

Many of these cleaners are soap based. A soap based cleaner is more likely to attract dirt to an area, rather than break the dirt and stains down. This makes reoccurring stains more likely as the cleaners do not kill the germs and bacteria under the surface of the carpet. If the padding does not get cleaned, the stains resurface. When a soap based cleaner is used, the dirt and grime attracted to the soaps eventually become visible.

These products are also expensive. A 64 ounce (2 quart) container can easily run over $20. This is hardly enough to clean a room, and unfortunately, for tough stains, they don't always have the ability to clean. Genesis 950 is a much more cost effective way to clean. It is sold in concentrate form. This means that you have to add water when you use it. The bulk of cleaners on the market for consumers are watered down. This is because they are not safe enough to be sold in concentrate form. There are Federal requirements as to what companies can sell to consumers. If a products chemical content is too high, water can be added to reduce that content. Genesis 950 does not have to do that. As a result, when you purchase Genesis 950, you are paying for 100% product, rather than a watered down version.

Best Carpet Shampoo
Genesis 950 Sizes


While a quart of Genesis 950 is $21.75 when ordered directly from our store website, The real savings come from the fact that it is concentrated. The mixing ratio for general cleaning with Genesis 950 is 1 part 950 to 7 parts water. When mixed in this manner, that 1 quart essentially becomes 7 quarts of cleaning solution. The general cleaning ratio for carpet cleaning is perfect for killing the germs and bacteria in the carpet, removing odors, and giving the carpet new life. If the stains being addressed are more than general cleaning stains, such as pet stains, wine stains, ink stains and so on, the ratio can be increased to as high as a 50/50 mix - although typically a 1/3 950 & 2/3 water mix should suffice. Some stains are bonded tighter to carpet and need a little more saturation of Genesis 950 and water to be removed.

The savings for Genesis 950 only increase when the sizes are increased. A 1 gallon container sells for $42. Again, for general cleaning, the breakdown of 950 and water at a 1:7 ratio really expands the product's longevity and that 1 gallon container essentially become 7 gallons. The most popular size for carpet cleaning an entire home is the 2.5 gallon container. At $60, you can easily clean your entire home. It also leaves plenty for tougher stains, spot cleaning, household cleaning and so on. Genesis 950 cleans far more than carpet, the uses are endless. $60 is far less than you will pay for a professional carpet cleaning, the cost of replacing an old carpet or the loss of a security deposit.

Genesis 950 makes carpets look fresh and restored. It is very easy to use in any type of carpet cleaning machine, and because it is not soap based, it is safe for any type of machine. There are 2 basic types of carpet cleaners.

Some machines have 2 compartments, one for water and one for cleaning solution. These are the easiest to use as far as measuring how much cleaner to use. Simply fill the solution compartment up with Genesis 950, and the water compartment with water. These machines typically have settings such as "High," "Medium," "Low" and "Rinse." By choosing the appropriate setting, the machine will automatically mix the water and solution automatically. When doing a basic clean, select the "Low" or "Medium" setting. If you are dealing with a prominent stain or pet stains, select "High." Be sure to check the solution compartment often as some machines run through it fast when using the high setting.

Other machines have 1 large tank where the water and the cleaning solution are mixed together. This is very typical of machines that can be rented. For these machines, simply mix the solution as needed based on the severity of the stains. If it is a general carpet cleaning, stick to the 1 part Genesis 950 to 7 parts water mix. For pet stains and food stains, a 1/3 Genesis 950 to 2/3 water mix can be used. If the carpet is obnoxious and filthy, you can go as high as a 50/50 mix.

When cleaning, take your time going over the area. Slowly release the mixture of Genesis 950 and water onto the carpet. After you have gone over the carpet, allow the mixture of 950 and water to sit for a few minutes. This is where Genesis 950 does the work. As the 950 comes in contact with the stains, it becomes absorbed by them. When this happens, the stain becomes water soluble. As the stain becomes water soluble, it breaks down. In addition to breaking down stains, the 950 will also break apart dirt, pollen, and any bacteria in the carpet.

After the carpet has been left alone for a brief period, change the settings of the machine so you can do a complete rinse. In a machine with 2 compartments, simply remove the solution compartment or change the setting to "Rinse." In a machine with 1 compartment, fill that compartment with fresh water and nothing else. Proceed to rinse the areas that you had initially cleaned with. You will notice the return water coming back filthy. In some cases, the 950 breaks so much down that the return water almost looks like mud. Repeat the rinsing to pull out as much as you can out of the carpet. If possible, keep rinsing until the water comes back looking clear. Obviously of the carpet has not been cleaned for some time, or it is a high traffic area, you may have to rinse a lot for this to happen. If that is the case, rinse until you are satisfied.

After you have rinsed the carpet, it is important to allow the carpet to dry. While excess moisture in the padding may promote bacteria or mold growth, the Genesis 950 fights that with it's antibacterial agents and actually prevents such growth. However, thoroughly drying the carpet is recommended. If weather permits and humidity levels are low, open windows to help the process. Fans and dehumidifiers can also be used to speed up the drying process.

Remove Pet Stains & Odors

Remove Pet Stains AND Odors - Put an end to indoor accidents Cats and dogs make great pets, but they can also make even bigger messes. Pet urine stains and smells can destroy fabrics and furniture. There are several cleaners to remove stains and odors, but everyone who owns a pet know they don't always work. Genesis 950 works with water to get into the stain. When absorbed by the stain, the mixture of Genesis 950 and water actually works to alter the stain's composition and break the structural bond of the stain. Once the bond is broken, the stain can be lifted and removed. Only by breaking the bond of the stain will you remove both the actual stain and the smell. If you do not do this, you are just masking it. Genesis 950 will break the bonds of stains and remove both the stain AND the odor. In addition, Genesis 950 is a deodorizer. It also acts as an anti-bacterial cleaner and will kill any germs or bacteria associated with the stain. But the best part is that Genesis 950 does not have the harsh toxins or chemicals that other household cleaners have. There is no bleach, acid, alcohol or ammonia, so it won't harm your carpet, your pet . . . or the environment.

 CAT OWNERS: Cat's urinate instinctively in the same spot where they smell urine. If your cat is peeing on the carpet, the furniture or clothes, the chances of it continuing are very strong unless you actually completely remove any trace of previous urine. The best way to get your cat going in the litter box is by fully removing the stain and odor. There are several cleaners that claim to do this, however you are very fortunate if they work. Enzymatic cleaners are live feeding cleaners and tend to wear themselves out before they get to the heart of the stain. Anything that contains ammonia or vinegar is a MAJOR no-no for cat owners. The Humane Society even recognizes and advises against using these to remove cat urine. The reason for this is because they contain elements found in cat urine. If you use these items to clean cat urine, and they have the same elements in cat urine, you are only reinforcing your cat to urinate in the spot where you “cleaned” with it. The next time you have this issue, first clean the urine with a paper towel and nothing else. Take that paper towel and place it in the cat's liter box. This will redirect the cat where the odor belongs. Next you have to fully remove the stain and the odor.

 DOG OWNERS: Dogs are also instinctive in marking their territory and urinating. They develop a routine when going to the bathroom and every dog owner knows that dogs prefer to relieve themselves in the same spot. Even if they are going outside, they generally prefer to do their business in a familiar spot. If they begin to mark spots in the home, it is very important that you act immediately to remove the stain and odor to prevent repeated behavior. By removing the smell they have created in your carpeting, you are controlling the urge for the dog to repeat the unwanted behavior. This holds very true for puppy training as well. Genesis 950 is the perfect aid in training puppies not to urinate inside your home. By eliminating the smell from previous accidents, you are redirecting the instinct to go in that same spot.

 For larger stains, and a more professional look, clean your entire carpet using Genesis 950 in any steam cleaner. Use the amount recommended by the steam cleaner manufacturer as you would any other cleaner they suggest. Steam cleaning carpeting with Genesis 950 will make your entire carpet look and smell professionally cleaned. As the mixture of water and Genesis 950 are absorbed by the carpet, any stains, dirt or grime will be loosened. Germs and bacteria will be destroyed. Your carpet will be completely deodorized. After cleaning the carpet using a steam cleaner and Genesis 950, be sure to go over the area a second time with straight water. When you do this, you will see all the dirt and grime that the previously applied Genesis 950 loosened from the carpet.

 Order Genesis 950 in pints or quarts at www.genesis950.com. To order 2.5 & 5 gallon cubes, call Amerikal at 847-244-3600.

How To Remove Pet Stains From Carpet & Upholstery

How To Remove Pet Stains From Carpet & Upholstery

There comes a time when every pet owner runs into an instance where there is a stain that just won't seem to go away. Sometimes the stain isn't as bad as the odor! There are countless pet stain remover products on the market, but none have the cleaning power of Genesis 950. Genesis 950 is a cleaner unlike any others. It is a green, safe, surfactant based cleaner. Surfact based cleaners use science to remove stains and odors. Rather than attack a stain with harsh chemicals, a surfact uses water to make the stain water soluble. When a stain becomes water soluble, it breaks down and then can be rinsed clean from the surface. In addition to removing stains by breaking them down, Genesis 950 also removes odors. It's antibacterial agents will remove any germs or bacteria that might be attached to the stain. Not only does your carpet end up looking clean, but it also ends up smelling great!

Regardless of whether you own a dog or a cat, Genesis 950 is the best pet stain remover you will find. There are several other methods often suggested for cleaning. All too often, while the suggestions for removing pet stains are made in good faith, there are many issues with recommendations made. Vinegar, enzymes and household cleaners are widely recommended, however they are not always effective. Here's why:
  • Vinegar - Vinegar is one of the most widely recommended agents for cleaning pet stains. 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. The problem however with pet owners is that same acidic base which can break down stains. 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 chances, 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 the smell the acidity of their urine. They will keep going to that spot unless it is properly cleaned. A vinegar cleaning will not remove that odor. Instead, you are simply enhancing it by adding another compound with a similar acidic base. 
  • Enzymes - Enzymes are hailed for their natural ability to break down stains. Enzymes are everywhere. The human body has them as well. The most notable are 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 pet 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 the odor briefly but not actually remove the stain or smell permanently. Soap based cleaners 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. 

Genesis 950 cleans the area. It does so safely and effectively. Genesis 950 can be used as a spot cleaner or in a carpet cleaning machine. For deep or old stains, it is recommended to use the mixture of Genesis 950 and water in a carpet cleaning machine. For urine based stains, the stain can extend below the surface and into the padding. When pet stains are in the padding, the odor will remain in your carpet until it is thoroughly cleaned. If it is not properly cleaned, you pet may continue to go in that spot, or odors will linger and be enhanced. Here is an example of a carpet soiled by pet urine. 

Clean pet stains from carpet

This basement carpet has seen years of staining. From vomit to urine stains, it had a little bit of everything. The carpet smelled horrible. The gray marks seen throughout the carpet are actually marks where the stains were cleaned. They had been cleaned with a very popular, very common, major brand cleaning product. However rather than remove the pet stains, the product itself left grayish marks. This carpet acquired these marks over several years. Other products were used to try to remove the stain left from the cleaner, but they only added to the frustration. The soaps used in the products were actually attracting dirt, making the spots more extreme. It seemed the only option left was to replace the carpet. Before doing so however, one last attempt was made to save the carpet using Genesis 950.

Clean pet stains from carpet

The results using Genesis 950 were astounding! Genesis 950 was used in a Bissell Pro Heat. Genesis 950 comes in concentrate form. It must be mixed with water for it to become active. The Bissell Pro Heat actually has 2 compartments for cleaning. One holds water, and the other solution. This made using the Bissell Pro Heat very easy. The solution compartment was simply filled with the concentrated Genesis 950 and the water compartment filled with water. The machine automatically mixes the two for you on it's own. With the machine, the mixture of Genesis 950 and water was able to be introduced to the carpet. Once the carpet absorbed the mixture, it began to break down the stains, disinfect the carpet, and remove the odor. The area was allowed to site for a few minutes, then rinsed. After rinsing, the carpet looked and smelled like new. Years of stains and the struggles in removing them were all gone!

Genesis 950 is also perfect as a spot cleaner. This is best advised for stains which do not go below the surface of the carpet. It is perfect for vomit stains. These types of stains might not go into the padding to cause odor issues, but they can cause severe discoloration. The reason for this is primarily from dye in pet food. This dye can cause harmful stains, especially on a white carpet! When using as a spot cleaner, it is best to remove any debris from the area, then spray with the mixture of Genesis 950 and water. While the recommended ratio is 1 part Genesis 950 to 7 parts water, this can be increased all the way to a 50/50 mix depending on the severity of the stain. Spray the mixture onto the stain, allow it to sit for a few minutes, then rinse clean.

How To Remove Cat Vomit Stains

How To Remove Cat Vomit Stains


Cat vomit stains can be stubborn and in some cases hard to remove. This is often because of the dye in cat food. This dye can easily penetrate the carpet fibers and leave discoloration. Cleaning these stains can be challenging because of such dye. With Genesis 950, cat stains can be easily removed and the dye lifted from the carpet. Genesis 950 is a cleaner unlike any other. It is a surfactant based cleaner. Because of this, it works with water to make a stain water soluble. When a stain becomes water soluble, it can then be broken down and rinsed away from the surface. 

While there are several products on the market that claim to be designed to work specifically on pet stains, they do not always work. There are several reasons for this:

  • Vinegar & ammonia - Perhaps the most commonly recommended cleaning agents for pet stains. Unfortunately, they are the WORST things you can use to clean pet stains. Both do have their positive attributes. They are green, natural products. They have a high enough level of acidity to break down stains without damaging surfaces being cleaned. They are inexpensive, and typically easy to find in the home. However, the acidic properties have comparable structural elements found in the acidic base of urine. This causes a problem because the odor released has some of the same properties found in urine. Remembering that animals urinate in areas where they smell urine, the use of ammonia and/or vinegar can serve as an open invitation for your pet to go in the spot you just cleaned with either of the products. Pet owners who use either of these often find themselves confused and perplexed when their pet keeps going in the same spot no matter how many times they clean the area. They go in that spot because the odor of the vinegar and ammonia do not remove the urine odor, they only enhance it from your pet's perspective of scent.
  • Enzymes - Enzymes line the aisles of pet stores. They are often hailed as the go to miracle cleaner for pet stains. This couldn't be further from the truth. Enzymes work on a principal that when two specific substances come in contact with each other, there will be a natural reaction in which one breaks the other down. It sounds simple enough, release the enzymes into the urine and they break down naturally. Unfortunately, it is not that simple. Enzymes are very complex. It takes specific factors to make an enzyme work. The process is often explained in comparison to using a lock and key. There can be a thousand keys and one lock. For the lock to be activated, the correct key needs to be used. All the other keys can be put to the lock, but if there is not a 100% match,

    there will be no reaction. Enzymes can only break down an element if they have the biological capacity to do so. The DNA strands have to be a 100% match. In addition to the DNA matching, there are other factors in play: temperature, moisture, age and so on. If any of these factors are off, the enzyme can not work. To complicate the process even more, enzymes sold are sold in general mass production. They are not designed to react specifically to the pH levels of individual pet's urine, variables in pet's diets, health issues and other details that vary from one animal to another. One of the most common complaints about enzymes is that the stain typically reappears a few days later or the odor returns. This happens because enzymes do not have the strength to get deep into the padding. So, while the stain on the carpet may be removed, what is left behind below the surface can rise to become visible as temperature changes. They also can not kill the bacteria which creates the odor. Without proper deodorizing, the odor returns.
  • Household Cleaners - Perhaps the most readily available cleaners are the traditional soap based, spot designed cleaners. They are designed as surface cleaners. Most perform well when removing stains from hard surfaces. Some can do a good job at lifting light food or drink stains, but they do not have the power to properly clean pet stains. As a spot cleaner, again the issue of what is below the surface is not being addressed. They can not get into the padding where the odor originates. Many of these cleaners are soap based. When soap based cleaners are used on carpet, they can lift some of the surface stain, but in doing so, they can leave other stains. Soap attracts dirt. Rather then break down dirt, it pulls it together and can cause it to clump up. In the process, streaking can occur in the carpet.
  • Oxidizing Cleaners - These cleaners work using a process called oxidization. Many of them use Nirtic Acid (which is in fertilizer - do you really want that in your carpet?) to remove electrons in an effort to displace a stain. It's a little more of a complex process. The chemistry used is not natural and very chemical based. Because of the use of chemicals, this is the process of cleaning pet stains where a consumer is most likely to damage their carpet. Discoloration can be a common effect when using oxidizing cleaners. The chemistry in the oxidizer can react to the carpet and turn it various colors, although a pinkish tint is the most common side effect. This type of discoloration can not be reversed.
Cleaning pet stains with Genesis 950 is easy. To properly clean a pet stain, mix Genesis 950 with water. The recommended cleaning ratio for Genesis 950 is 1 part Genesis 950 to 7 parts water. This however can be increased all the way to a 50/50 mix in the event the stain is bad. To clean, first locate the stain. In this example, the stain is very easy to find. A cat vomited what seems to be it's entire breakfast on a living room rug.

In addition to removing vomit stains, Genesis 950 can also remove urine stains, as well as the odor. There are several benefits to genesis 950:

Genesis 950 is safe enough to be sold in concentrate form. This has several benefits.
  • First and foremost, it demonstrates how safe Genesis 950 is. Most cleaners available can not be sold in concentrate form because the chemistry is unsafe to either consumers or the environment. Because of this, they need to be watered down. With Genesis 950, you add the water as needed when cleaning.
  • As a concentrate, the consumer can determine the strength of the water to Genesis 950 mix needed. Some cleaning scenarios, such as general cleaning require less 950, while other situations such as grease or pet stain removal require a higher amount of 950. Being able to control how much solution is needed helps make the product last longer.
  • Because a cleaner sold in concentrate form is not watered down, the financial savings are higher. Rather than paying for water, the customer is paying for product. A quart of Genesis 950 is $21.75. When used for general cleaning at a recommended ratio of 1 part 950 to 7 parts water, that concentrated quart actually breaks down to 7 quarts of diluted cleaner. This breakdown actually gets you 7 bottles of cleaning solution at $3.10 a bottle.

Genesis 950 Cleaner Review From Chronically Content

Genesis 950 Review From Chronically Content

Genesis 950 Concentrate has been reviewed by Lisa at Chronically Content. Lisa is a stay at home Mom and has health issues. But rather than be bogged down by these issues, she lives stronger and inspires others. She takes the time to share her experiences, and share things that help make her life easier. She is absolutely inspiring. Because Genesis 950 is a safe, green cleaner, we had asked her to try Genesis 950. Not only did she try it, but she loved it and shared some great photos as to what she cleaned with Genesis 950.

In her review, she used Genesis 950 as a household cleaner. There were a variety of things she cleaned. She used Genesis 950 on tile, cabinets, concrete and a shower curtain. For each thing she cleaned, she shared photos detailing what Genesis 950 had done. 

Here is an example of the tile she had cleaned:


While the tile shown on the left looked clean, Lisa found that using Genesis 950 picked up a great deal of dirt and grime that she had not noticed until she saw the rag. This is because Genesis 950 works differently than other cleaners. Genesis 950 is a surfactant based cleaner. This means it works with water to make stains water soluble. Once something is water soluble it can be broken down and then removed from what it has adhered to. In this case, the 950 pulled dirt and grime from the pores of the tile, from the grouted areas, and from areas where it might have been wedged in. 


In this example, Lisa used Genesis 950 to pretreat a shower curtain. The curtain was covered in soap scum, mold and water buildup. She sprayed the curtain with the recommended amount of water and Genesis 950, allowed it to sit, then washed it. As the 950 worked it's way into the shower curtain, it pulled up and removed all the staining. In addition to removing stains, it also kills mold and bacteria . . . all while being green!

The uses for Genesis 950 are endless. From everyday cleaning, to pet stains, full carpet cleaning to degreasing engines. Genesis 950 will clean like no other cleaner!

Best All Purpose Green Cleaner

Looking for the best all purpose cleaner and stain remover?

Best Stain RemoverGenesis 950 is a green, surfactant based cleaner that uses science to break down and remove stains. 

Typical household cleaners contain bleach, ammonia, soaps or other chemicals designed to remove stains. Some are marketed to specifically target a type of stain, whether it be for carpet, stainless steel, tile or grout. As a result, consumers end up with a cabinet full of different cleaners, each designed to do something different. 

Genesis 950 eliminates the need for multiple products and does so without using bleach, soaps or harsh chemicals. As a surfactant based cleaner, Genesis 950 works with water to make a stain water soluble. When a stain becomes water soluble, it can then be broken down and rinsed clean from the surface. It also works on multiple surfaces. Whether you are cleaning carpet, tile, concrete, upholstery, or any other surface, Genesis 950 works to remove the stains. Instead of having a cabinet full of cleaners all targeted for different cleaning needs, you have one cleaner that does it all. 

Because Genesis 950 works so different from other cleaners, the uses for it are endless. Genesis 950 is sold in various sizes for retail consumers ranging from a pint to a 5 gallon container. It is sold in concentrate form. This means that you are getting straight cleaner. You mix it with water when you use it depending on your cleaning needs. As a result, you are saving money in the long run. For example, the recommended cleaning ratio is for Genesis 950 to be mixed with water at a ratio of 1 part Genesis 950 to 7 parts water. Using this breakdown, a 1 Gallon container of Genesis 950 can essentially be broken down to 7 gallons of cleaning solution! What other cleaners will give you 7 gallons of cleaner for $42???

Genesis 950 is perfect for pet owners. Unlike other cleaners, it removes not only the stain, but also the odor. When used in a machine, the mixture of 950 and water can make pet stains water soluble. This allows the stain to be broken down and lifted from the surface. While it is cleaning the stain, it is also deodorizing the area, killing any bacteria responsible for foul odors. Because it is free of harsh chemicals, it leaves behind nothing to harm or cause illness to your pets and family.



Carpet cleaning is another use for Genesis 950. Professional carpet cleaning can cost hundreds of dollars. With Genesis 950, a 2.5 Gallon cube costs $60 and provides more than enough to concentrate to clean an average size home. Simply add the concentrate and water to any home cleaning machine and make your carpets look professionally cleaned. Restore stained, dirty carpet! Remove dirt, grime, food and drink stains, and odors.


Car enthusiasts, mechanics, and auto dealers love Genesis 950 for the garage. Because it is such an effective cleaner, and so gentle at the same time, it can be used to clean vehicles and engines without damaging the paint, fabrics or engines. It can be used on both the interior and exterior of a vehicle with amazing results. As an interior detailer, it can be used on cloth, carpet, leather, plastic, stainless and chrome fixtures. Use it to remove stains from spills, eliminate odors inside the car and to make your vehicle look and smell like new. The toughest nooks and crannies present no challenge when cleaned with Genesis 950. 


Under the hood, use Genesis 950 in a power-washer to clean engines. Genesis 950 can break down grease, oil and tar. Properly cleaning engines on vehicles helps to eliminate buildup and rust that can shorten the life of your car. 


No other cleaner is as versatile as Genesis 950. It can be used on virtually any surface and can clean the hardest stains. Here are a handful of reviews done by Bloggers on Genesis 950:








DIY Engine Degreaser

How To Degrease Engines


Keeping a clean engine helps promote longer life for your car. Oil and grease build up can clog areas under the hood and if not properly maintained, make it more challenging to do simple tasks. In addition to eliminating buildup in the engine, a thorough engine cleaning can also deter metal based portions of the engine from rusting. 

Genesis 950 is a perfect cleaner when it comes to degreasing engines. The steps are simple and the process is easy because of the way Genesis 950 works. It is a surfactant based cleaner that works with water. When mixed with water, Genesis 950 will break apart the bonds of grease, oil, tar and other staining agents. When these stains are broken down, they can then be rinsed and lifted from the surface they have adhered to. This is idea when cleaning an engine. It makes the process easy, and hands free as the Genesis 950 does the work so you don't have to. 


In our example, this is a 1999 Chevy Suburban engine. The engine had not been cleaned in the past. You can see heavy buildup on the casing and hoses.

Genesis 950

When degreasing an engine, mix Genesis 950 and water in a spray bottle. The general recommended ratio is 1 part Genesis 950 to 7 parts water. You can however mix as high as a 50/50 ratio. However you do not want to go any higher than that as the water activates the Genesis 950. 

How to degrease an engine

Spray the mixture on the engine. Be sure to target the most heavily dirtied areas. Allow the mixture of Genesis 950 and water to sit for about 5 minutes. As it sits, it will begin breaking down the grease, oil and other debris. 

Clean an engine

After the mixture has sat for a short period of time, rinse the engine using a hose or powerwash type nozzle. In this example, a rinse wand at a self service car wash was used. 

Clean engine with Genesis 950

After rinsing, your engine will be clean. If there are areas where there is still buildup, reapply the mixture of Genesis 950 and water. Allow the mixture to sit for a longer time period. If needed, the ratio of Genesis 950 in the mixture can be increased. Detailing can always be done on specific areas using a rag to help break down excess.

Here is the engine before and after:


Genesis 950 is an extremely versatile cleaner. Not only does it clean engines, but it can also be used on the body, tires, hubcaps, grill and interior. It is a green cleaner, so it will not harm your vehicle's body, paint or upholstery. It is also free of harsh toxins and will not harm the environment.
