MACK has developed a unique range of eco-friendly and extremely effective cleaning products. Powered by good bacteria, they are cost-effective and not harmful to users or the environment. 

These cleaning pods are a perfect sustainable and natural way to deal with those pesky slow-moving drains. Enzymatic action breaks down the substances followed by good bacteria that create a beautifully smooth and slippery biofilm to aid the flow of water. The BioPods are wrapped in a PVA coating which dissolves in warm (not hot) water. These BioPods are for a single application in the drain and are available in two options:

Dr Dre'n: Citrus scented formula to clear slow moving drains caused by a build up of soap scum, hair and debris. To use, dissolve in a 1-litre container with warm (not hot) water and pour about 250ml down each plug hole – leave for at least 4 hours or overnight for best results. Note this will not clear pipes that have been blocked for years. These will need professional clearing.

Hairy scumbag: For regular use to keep pipes, drains and plug holes running freely. Use this regularly and you may not need Dr Dre'n! Dissolve Hairy Scumbag in a 1 litre jug of warm (not hot) water and pour approx 250ml down each plug hole. Allow 4 hours before you use the sink or drain to let the enzymes and the Million Little Helpers (good bacteria) do their work.

The science: Mack's method of cleaning is called ‘light touch; long term’. The initial clean is mainly done by using enzymes and natural surfactants which are coconut based. These enzymes are produced by bacteria and added into the MACK formula to give the BioPods effective immediate cleaning action which instantly lifts dirt, oil or grease and grime from the surfaces. Their good bacteria get to work breaking down the dirt and grime which not only makes it easier to dissolve in water, but also gives the natural bacteria some food! This process causes the production of more (good) bacteria, more enzymes, carbon dioxide and water – so nothing harmful at all.

Sprays can be wiped off immediately or left on stubborn stains for a while. But even after being wiped these bacteria and enzymes will have formed a bio film and will continue to clean for up to 28 days. That’s why MACK call them ‘a million little helpers’.

It is important to note that many traditional cleaners, which contain chemicals, will kill the bio film that has built up. As a result, it is important, once you start, to remember to ‘Keep It MACK’!

In their diluted form, the BioPods have no health hazards at all, but in concentrated form, some of the ingredients could be a mild irritant so it is recommended to wash hands after handling the pods directly.
