Fall Carpet Cleaning


Genesis 950 is also available on Amazon:

Fall is upon us and winter is right around the corner. During Summer, your carpets probably had their fair share of messes. Spills and stains might be making your carpet look older than it really is. Traffic in and out from the kids might have made a path through your house. Dirt, dust and grime might have made their way into the fibers. Moisture from the humidity might be making your carpet smell unpleasant. This is the best time of year to give your carpet a full blown cleaning.

fall cleaning

Genesis 950 is the perfect cleaner for not only cleaning your carpet, but also for restoring the fibers a plush, soft state. Genesis 950 is a green, all purpose cleaner that works different than other cleaners. It is surfactant based and when mixed with water, it works to break down the bonds of stains. As a result, the stains lose adherence and can be flushed away from the surface. 


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.

There are countless products available for cleaning pet stains. However they do not have the positive affects that Genesis 950 has. Too often, people use the wrong things to clean pet stains and end up with situations worse then before they attempted to clean.

  • 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.
    Best Way Clean Pet Stains From Carpet
  • 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.

Genesis 950 is the only cleaner you'll need this fall to keep your home clean. As a surfactant based cleaner, Genesis 950 works with water to make stains water soluble. When this happens, the bonds of a stain are broken and the stain can then be lifted from the surface.

Not only does Genesis 950 clean, but it cleans safely. As a green cleaner, it is environmentally friendly. Genesis 950 is free of hazardous chemicals that have been linked to cancer, allergies, complications with blood cells and so on. This makes it not only safe for you as you clean, but safe for your family and pets.

Being an all purpose cleaner, Genesis 950's uses are endless. This summer spend less time cleaning, and more time enjoying life!                 

                                                       Carpet Cleaning

best carpet cleaning solution
Make your carpets look and smell professionally cleaned with Genesis 950. Using 
Genesis 950 in a carpet cleaning machine can revive and restore your carpet. Remove pet stains, traffic stains, spills and dirt from carpet. 

Genesis 950 works better than most carpet cleaners because it is not a soap based cleaner. Being a surfactant cleaner, Genesis 950 uses water to make stains water soluble. When this happens, the bonds of the stain which adhere it to the surface they are attached to are weakened. Once these bonds lose their strength, then can be flushed from the surface. 

Soap based cleaners can leave a residue behind. This residue is often a fine film which can give your carpet a slimy feeling. Over time, this film can actually dry, leaving the carpet feeling stiff. Soaps are also designed to attract dirt. This can cause dirt, dust and dander to actually be drawn to the carpet. 

Another benefit of cleaning carpets with Genesis 950 is that it has anti-bacterial agents which can break down mold, bacteria and other debris. Moisture in carpet can increase the growth of such mold and bacteria. This can lead to respiratory issues and increased allergies. By cleaning with Genesis 950, you are not only removing the dirt and stains, but you are also preventing the growth of mold and bacteria. 


Best Carpet Cleaning Machine
Bissell Pro Heat
There are several types of carpet cleaning machines. One of the most popular models is the Bissell Pro Heat. This machine is comparable to a vacuum cleaner in size and extremely easy to use. Many brands such as Bissell have 3 compartments. One compartment for fresh water, one for cleaning solution and one for dirty water. Machines like this also have settings to vary the amount of solution being used when cleaning. Based on the level of cleaning needed, you can select various settings such as Light, Medium or Heavy. Obviously, the dirtier the carpet, the higher the setting. You selection increases or decreases the amount of cleaning solution being mixed with the clean water as the machine is in use.

When cleaning pet stains, the higher setting is the most desirable. When using Genesis 950 at this setting, the machine will take a higher amount of solution. Slowly go over the carpet releasing the mixture. After you have gone over the carpet, allow the mixture of Genesis 950 and water to sit for about 30 - 40 minutes. This will give the solution ample time to soak into the carpet and padding to break down the stains. After that time period has passed, select the "Rinse" setting and go back over the carpet. This setting will only release fresh water onto the carpet. In doing so, the fresh water will flush out everything that has been broken down and extract it from the carpet. If the carpet has not been cleaned for sometime, this water may come back almost black. If this happens, repeat rinsing until the water starts to come back clear.

Carpet Cleaning Hacks
Bissell 2 In 1

Other carpet cleaning machines have what is refereed to as a 2 in 1 tank. The Bissell Powerlift is an excellent machine with this type of system. This tank allows you to mix both the cleaning solution and the water in 1 tank. Typically, these tanks have a fill line as to how high you should fill the tank with solution, with the remaining space for clean water. With Genesis 950, you can follow the same guidelines for mixing solution and water, or you can increase the amount of Genesis 950 based on the stain type. For general cleaning, 1/3 950 to 2/3 water is perfect. This will break down surface stains, protect your padding and give a clean scent to your carpet. For heavier stains, or really bad pet odor, this ratio can be increased to a 50/50 mix. Once the tank is filled, go over the carpet. Allow this mixture to sit in the carpet for about 30 - 40 minutes to properly break down stains, odors, bacteria, dirt and dust. After that time has elapsed, fill the tank with ONLY clean water. Go over the entire area nice and slow. The clean water with rinse and flush out the stains that have been broken down. If you see your return water coming back black, you might want to rinse multiple times until the water begins to come back clear.

Carpet cleaning machines can also be rented at hardware and department stores. Typically, these machines have a 2 in 1 tank system allowing you to mix the solution and water in one tank. Again, you can mix the 950 to water from as low as 1/3 950 & 2/3 water, to as much as a 50/50 mix between the two. One of the keys with Genesis 950 is to never go higher than a 50/50 mix. It is water that activates Genesis 950. Because of this, having more Genesis 950 than water can actually lessen the cleaning impact.

How To Remove Pet Stains
For spills and stains, Genesis 950 can be used as a spot cleaner. To achieve the best results, fill a spray bottle 1/3 of the way with Genesis 950 and the remaining 2/3 with water. Spray the stained area, allowing the mixture to fully saturate the stain. Let the mixture sit on the stain for a few minutes to properly break down the stain. Depending on the stain type, you may have to let it sit for a longer period of time. After the stain has been broken down, rinse thoroughly with water. If the stain has not completely lifted, repeat this process and perhaps add a little bit more Genesis 950 or allow the mixture to sit longer to more effectively break down the stains.

The Small Things By Bre Genesis 950 Review
In addition to general carpet cleaning, Genesis 950 is perfect for removing pet stains. Whether it be cats or dogs, Genesis 950 can remove feces, urine and vomit stains as well as tracked in mud and dirt. 

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. 
  • 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.

    Organic Sunshine Genesis 950 Review
  • 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. 


Kitchen cleaning with traditional cleaners can leave behind toxins that can touch food and surface areas where food is prepared. This is another perk to Genesis 950. Being a green cleaner, it will not leave behind harmful chemicals. As an all purpose cleaner, Genesis 950 can tackle all your kitchen cleaning needs.

Tile Floor Cleaned By Beautifully BellaFaith

Tile floors can be cleaned using Genesis 950 as well. This can be done a number of ways. The solution can be mixed with water and used in a steam cleaning machine, the floor can be mopped with the solution, or the surface can be hand cleaned using a towel or rag. Genesis 950 is highly effective at cleaning tile as it can easily get into the pores where dirt and grime have built up. It also makes cleaning grout a simple task. Perhaps the best way to clean tile is using the Genesis 950 & water mixture in a spray bottle, spraying the tile, letting it sit for a few minutes, then wiping down with a rag.

When using the method described with a spray bottle and a rag to wipe up the loosened grime, the results are evident. A relatively clean looking floor will really show it's dirty side when cleaned with Genesis 950. In this example, a tile floor, which looked clean with the eye, actually revealed how dirty it really was. The Genesis 950 was able to get into the pores of the tile and grout, break down the trapped dirt and grime and bring it to the surface. The rag demonstrates just how much can be removed from a "clean" tile floor when used.

Bacteria, germs and mold can commonly be found in bathrooms. By cleaning with an anti-bacterial cleaner, you are helping to combat illness and health issues. 

Genesis 950 can tackle all the surfaces found in the bathroom. From tiles to ceramic, chrome and stainless steel, tile floors, finished wood and more, Genesis 950 is truly an all purpose cleaner. 

Clean tubs, showers, toilets, sinks and flooring with ease. 

how to clean water stains
Shower cleaned by Chronically Content

Tubs and showers are a pain to clean. Soap scum, water buildup, rust stains and stains that run off of packaging left in the shower can make the facility undesirable. Depending on how long the stain has been there, simply spray, allow to sit and wipe off. Older stains and marks may take a little extra elbow grease, but Genesis 950 can add a big hand in breaking down the stains to make your job easier. Not only does it help with the shower and tub, but as you clean, it will also help break down debris in the drainage system. If you are an environmentalist, you will also be happy to hear you are not putting any hazardous chemicals into the drainage system.

Pour a little Genesis 950 right into the shower head and run water through the fixture to get better water pressure and a thoroughly clean shower head. 


During the summer months, your furniture might see more use than usual. If you have pets, there are all sorts of issues. Pet stains can come from slobbering or licking the furniture, an illness that causes leakage, mud from outside, marking territory and so much more. Kid stains can come from anything!!! Food stains, drink spills, art projects gone wrong and kids just being kids. 

Genesis 950 is an amazing cleaner for all types of furniture. Because it does not have harsh chemicals, it can be used on microfiber, leather, polyester, cloth and even vintage materials. 

Much like carpet cleaning, furniture can be cleaned in two different ways. In the photo to the left, Genesis 950 was used in a Bissell Spotbot to clean a microfiber duo-chair. When using any kind of machine for cleaning upholstery, it is best to use the attachment wand to get a thorough cleaning. In this example, the Genesis 950 was again used at a ratio of 1/3 950 to 2/3 water. The furniture was thoroughly cleaned, and the mixture allowed to site for about a half an hour. After that time had passed, the process was repeated using only clean water in the machine to flush everything that had been broken down. It's a LONG process when it comes to cleaning furniture, but it's worth it when the furniture reeks of pets and the only other option is spending money on new furniture. This thorough cleaning removes stains and odors. 

Couch Stains Cleaned By The Small Things
The second way to clean furniture with Genesis 950 is by spot cleaning problem areas. If you are not dealing with an entirely smelly piece of furniture and do not feel like investing an entire day to clean a whole couch, using Genesis 950 in a spray bottle lets you target specific areas as was done in this review by The Small Things. Easily remove stains and dirt to give your furniture a revived feeling. 

The uses for Genesis 950 do not stop with the carpet, kitchen, bathroom and furniture. That's just the beginning!!! Clean cars, trucks, boats, RVs and cycles. Genesis 950 is good for both exterior cleaning and interior detailing as well as engine degreasing. Clean concrete, stones, asphalt and more. Remove graffiti. Power wash siding and decks.  The list of what Genesis 950 can and has cleaned is never ending.

Clean patioFall is just around the corner. It's almost time to pack up the patio, shut down the grill and brace yourself for the snow! This is the best time of the year to get your patio gear all cleaned up before it goes into storage. Over the summer, the weather may have raised havoc on your patio. Outdoor furniture and rugs may have water stains, mold build up or have just gotten dirty. Summer cookouts might have left your grill greasy. Your patio bricks might have dirt and grime covering it.                                                                                                                             Genesis 950 is the perfect cleaner for all of your patio needs. As a surfactant based cleaner, Genesis 950 works with water to break the bonds of stains. Once a stain's bonds have been broken, the stain loses it's adherence and can then be rinsed away from the surface. Genesis 950 works on all types of surfaces. Easily clean upholstery, wicker, stainless steel, concrete and brick with out causing any damage. In addition to being a versatile all purpose cleaner, Genesis 950 is environmentally friendly. Safely clean outside without damaging grass or leaving hazardous chemicals that could seep into the soil or into drainage systems. Being green, Genesis 950 is also safe to use in areas where pets and children might spend their time.                                                                                                             Cleaning your patio gear this time of year also makes it easier when Spring comes. With the furniture all cleaned, and the grill ready to go, just break it out when the weather warms up and it's ready to use! Cleaning your furniture before storage also prevents mold growth when it is packed away for the winter. A clean grill in storage also minimizes damage from mice. A dirty grill layered in grease can supply mice enough food to prosper through winter as they can live off the dried food and grease that might be caked on the grill. 

How To Clean An Outdoor Rug

How to clean outdoor carpet
Outdoor rugs can add a whole new dimension to the outdoor patio. However being outside, they are exposed to various elements that can damage them. Rain can encourage mold growth and allow dirt to easily build up on the rug. Stains and spills from food can create stains. This rug has been exposed to everything you can imagine. Grass stains, mold growth, food spills and even grease and oil stains from the lawn mower. Looking at the rug, one might think it's time for a replacement. Not so with Genesis 950. While the rug looks ruined, Genesis 950 has the cleaning power to restore the carpet to it's original state.

clean carpet stainsTo clean the rug, use Genesis 950 in a spray bottle at a ratio of 1/3 Genesis 950 to 2/3 water. Looking at the stain, because it's so bad, one might be inclined to use Genesis 950 straight. However, there is no need for this. It is water that activates Genesis 950 and allows it to work. It is very important the water ratio is greater than the 950 ratio. Spray all of the stained areas ensuring that they are thoroughly saturated. Allow this mixture to soak into the carpet for a few moments. As the mixture soaks into the carpet, it will work to break down the stains. 
remove grass stains from carpet

After the mixture has been allowed some time to soak into the stained areas, begin to scrub the heavily stained areas. You can see in the photo how the stain has already lightened from the mixture of Genesis 950 and water. As you begin to scrub the area, you will see that the stain has been broken down so well that it cleans up quite easily. This particular stain is mold and engine grease. These stains have been set in for months. Traditional cleaners would have a hard time removing these types of stains without damaging the carpeting!

clean outdoor rugOnce the stained areas have been scrubbed, rinse the areas clean. Because this is an outdoor rug, designed to withstand water, it can easily be rinsed using a garden house. And because Genesis 950 is environmentally friendly, the runoff will not kill the grass or leave harmful chemicals to seep into the soil. In this photo you can see a lot of foaming. This foaming is NOT from the Genesis 950, but rather foam from previous cleaners that were used (and clearly did not work) to clean the rug. In addition to breaking down stains, Genesis 950 also removes residue left behind from other cleaning products.

Once the rug has been rinsed, you can see the difference cleaning with Genesis 950 has made. This rug went from a dingy, completely stained rug to a carpet that looks brand new. Now, allow the rug to dry thoroughly - especially before storing. Once dry, roll the rug up and if possible, wrap in plastic or a garbage bag for storage ensuring the rug is properly sealed so that bugs or rodents do not damage it through the winter months. No need to spend money on a brand new rug! It's all ready for next year.

How To Clean Outdoor Furniture

wicker furniture careOutdoor furniture can be pretty resilient. Wicker is one of the most popular types of outdoor furniture because of how well it withstands weather. Birds love wicker furniture too!!! This chair has become a favorite perch for some Sparrows with a nearby nest. While wicker is resilient, it can also be difficult to clean because of how the wicker intertwines. With typical cleaners, this type of stain needs to be scrubbed off, making it difficult to clean in between layers. This is especially true if the wicker is tightly woven, such as the case in this photo. Trying to pull the wicker to clean in between the woven layers can damage the furniture and loosen the wicker. However Genesis 950 makes cleaning these types of stains very easy. 
clean wicker furnitureTo clean lawn furniture, spray the stained area with Genesis 950 and water. Again, the 1/3 Genesis 950 to 2/3 water ratio is recommended. Spray the stained area as thoroughly as possible, Saturating the stain. Because of the location on the chair, it is hard to really soak the area as the solution will run down the chair. It will however be able to collect in the tight weave of the wicker, which will break down any of the stain that has dried in those spots. Because this is a natural stain, it will break down fairly easy and you should see some of the stain breaking down simply by spraying the mixture of Genesis 950 and water onto it. Let it sit for a few moments. This will allow it to work it's way into the stain.

However Genesis 950 isn't just for wicker furniture. You can also use it to clean cushions and cloth  upholstery. This photo shows a zero gravity chair that has been stained either by rain or a soda spill. Because these chairs are portable, they see a lot of staining. They are also not cheap. With that being said, it's easier to clean one than to replace one. This stain had been set in for a couple of weeks.

patio furniture cleaningTo remove the stain, spray the area with the 1/3 Genesis 950 and 2/3 water mixture. Be sure to thoroughly saturate the stain. The mixture will allow the Genesis 950 to break down the bonds of the stains and allow the water to saturate the stain. Once you have saturated the area, allow the mixture to sit for a few minutes to work itself into the stains.

There is no bleach in the cleaner, so there is no possible way the fabric can be lightened or bleached out. For as tough as Genesis 950 is on stains, it is gentle on the surfaces it is applied to. With many traditional household cleaners, the bleach used can cause significant discoloration to fabric and upholstery.

clean outdoor furnitureAfter the mixture has been allowed to sit, simply wipe the stain away. Typically stains of this nature do not require a lot of scrubbing. The outdoor carpet did require some scrubbing due to the fact that the stains were not just on the surface, but they were in the fibers of the carpet as well. In the event the stains have not been removed, try either using Genesis 950 at a higher ratio in the mix with water, or allow it to sit on the stain for a longer period of time.

How To Clean Grills

Grills are a tough job to clean. They require a little more elbow grease than furniture or carpets. They also require more time to clean. The best time of the year to clean the grill is in fall before putting it away for winter. Many people like the flavor of grilling on a grill that has been used, so the buildup over summer can add to the flavor of what's cooking. In the event that the grill is used after cleaning, Genesis 950 is safe. It will not leave behind any chemicals that can be hazardous if ingested. You do not want to clean your grill with something that can create health issues if they make contact with cooking surfaces. Just be sure to get the grill clean before putting it in the garage for the winter to avoid some common issues. Mice can feed on built up grease and left behind food for the duration of winter. As the temperature varies, warmer days can cause the grease to drip in the garage, leaving behind a stain on the flooring.

The grill pictured above was replaced by a new grill and the dirty grill was passed along to someone else because of how filthy it was. The person who inherited the unsightly grill used Genesis 950 to clean it. To clean it, Genesis 950 was used at the standard 1/3 ratio with 2/3 water. The grill was thoroughly spayed with Genesis 950. Every inch of the grill was saturated with the mixture. As the mixture soaked into the grease and burnt areas, it began to break apart. After soaking for some time, the grill was cleaned with a pressure washer to break away all of the buildup that had been saturated and could break away on it's own. After pressure washing, the areas that still had buildup were re saturated with the cleaning mixture and allowed to sit for about 5 - 10 minutes. These areas were then cleaned with a scouring pad. There were areas that did require a lot of scrubbing and in many instances a second or third application of the Genesis 950 mixture.

How To Clean Brick & Concrete

best cleaner for brick

clean bricksBrick can collect all sorts of build up. Mold, stains from plants, bird droppings, dirt, and dust can all become embedded in brick and grout. Genesis 950 can be used to clean brick and grout without damaging either. In the examples shown, Genesis 950 was again used at the 1/3 to 2/3 water ratio. We have no idea what these stains are! It appears to be some time of mold. The stains were sprayed with the cleaning mixture, allowed to sit and then cleaned off with a towel and rinsed. For tough jobs or a thorough cleaning, use Genesis 950 in a power washer to really get in the nooks and crannies as well as high to reach places. Genesis 950 can also be used to power wash aluminum siding. 

remove concrete stainsOne of our favorite reviewers, Bre at The Small Things, used Genesis 950 to get her house ready for fall. She had recently moved into a new apartment and the previous renters had a rubber mat at the front door. The mat had stained her concrete and she tried EVERYTHING to clean it. Nothing remove the stains. However that all changed when she used Genesis 950.

To remove the stains, she used Genesis 950 at a higher concentrate. Her mixing ratio was 3/4 Genesis 950 and 1/4 water. Typically, we don't recommend more cleaner than water, however Bre has used Genesis 950 for years and understands how it works and knew that this was going to be a tough job. She applied the mixture to the concrete and allowed it to sit for a few moments. She then used a scrub brush on the stain. This helps to get into the pours of the concrete. After scrubbing, she was able to rinse away the stains.

Bre also had another area of stained concrete near her back patio. The air condition unit drips water onto the concrete. The mixture of water with the heat of the running unit was a breeding ground for mold. You can clearly see the mold and bacteria growth on the concrete.

Again, she saturated the area with the cleaning mixture and let it sit. After two minutes, she began scrubbing. Finally, she rinsed away the stains. The difference is night and day.

Another plus, the fact that Genesis 950 is green means it will not kill any grass with the runoff, it will not pollute the yard with toxic chemicals, and it is safe in the event a pet or child decides to explore the area. You can read her full review at The Small Things to see what else she has to say.

The cleaning possibilities are endless. These are just some of the things Genesis 950 can do on your patio. Imagine what it can clean inside your home!!!

Genesis 950 is an all purpose cleaner that cleans like nothing else. It is a green, surfactant based cleaner. This means instead of attacking surfaces with harsh chemicals like bleach, vinegar, ammonia or soaps, it works with water to be absorbed into the stain and then alter the stains composition to break down the bonds of the stain. Not only does it remove the stain, but in the process it kills germs and bacteria associated with the stain. In turn, this also deodorizes the area. Genesis 950 is an all purpose cleaner with multiple uses. Among the most popular are carpet cleaning, pet stain and odor removal, and car detailing. However the uses are limitless when it comes to what you can clean with Genesis 950.
