Unlike other cleaners MonoClean is perfectly safe.

The primary component of MonoClean is monolaurin. There is no limit to the amount of monolaurin you can safely ingest. Even when you eat it there's no affect on the "good" bacteria in your digestive system. It's a natural compound that is fully biodegradable. It won't harm the environment.

Unlike other cleaners MonoClean leaves a film that protects for days or even months. If you clean the counter top with other cleaners a sneeze five minutes later will contaminate your clean surface. MonoClean keeps working.

Let's take a look at the safety of some other popular «anti-bacterial» product additives.


What we have here is a chlorinated phenol. Talk about hazardous!! This stuff can build up in your fat tissues. Triclosan plus chlorine plus uv light can equal dioxin- one of the most hazardous materials known to man. Trace amounts have been found in human breast milk. The EPA gives triclosan high scores both as a human health risk and as an environmental risk. Here's a few links from professionals on the subject:

Girl Scouts Say No To Triclosan

A group of curious Girl Scouts in St. Paul, Minnesota found that when they tried to use triclosan to kill bacteria they were growing for a science fair project, the bacteria actually started growing. After a two-year investigation, the girls found that while anti-bacterial soap kills 99.6% of germs, regular soap kills 99.4% of germs. The Girl Scouts concluded that household anti-bacterial products are unnecessary, and that by not quite killing all the bacteria, they could actually create super-germs that will pose a threat to public health. Based on their findings, these young girls have met with local lawmakers who have submitted a bill on the girls' behalf that would ban the use of triclosan.


Purell Hand Sanatizer Hand sanitizers are all the rage. But really what are they? Most are over 60% ethyl alcohol. That's 120 proof! Thus they've been banned in several prisons. They need to be that high in alcohol because they cannot effectively kill germs at a lower percentage.

Since they are high in alcohol they ship as a hazardous product because of flammability. One of the purveyors of these products suggest that they should be placed in every classroom. Presuming you'd want to keep 32 oz. bottle in a class to service an average 25 students and your school has 36 classrooms that equals nine gallons of flammable material distributed throughout the building.

The health problem with alcohol sanitizers is that they dry your hands. In a study with nurses in the Philippines they found that after regular use for a month the nurses hands became red and irritated. When they used a monolaurin solution they found the reduction of pathogenic bacteria to be equal and hands didn't suffer the same uncomfortable results. Monolaurin is an emollient. It softens your hands.

MonoClean's Material Safety Data Sheet   <<--  MSDS

What does this mean to you? It means you can buy a cleaner that is 100% safe around children, pets and chemically sensitized individuals. It means that any surface cleaned with MonoClean remains antimicrobial without using dangerous chemicals.

When the food additive amendments to the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FDCA) were enacted in 1958, certain food ingredients with a long history of use were exempted from the pre-market evaluation and approval process required for food additives. Such compounds were labeled as "generally recognized as safe" (GRAS) under the conditions of their intended use. However, any food ingredient can be considered GRAS as long as it is generally recognized among scientific experts (qualified by scientific training and experience) to be safe under the conditions of its intended use.
