Answers to Your Hygiene and Odour Questions
Q: What is a bio-enzyme cleaner?
A: Bio-enzyme cleaning products are products that use non-pathogenic “good “bacteria to digest wastes, soils, stains, and malodours. QS
Q: But how do they work?
A: Good bacteria do this by producing enzymes to break down certain molecules, (waste products), into smaller pieces. The bacteria consume these soils and break them down into two basic compounds; carbon dioxide and water. The bacteria grow, consume the soils until it diminishes, (the soil has gone), the activity decreases and can now be washed away. QS
Q: So are these enzymes “alive”?
A: The enzymes in the Bio one range are not “alive”, and cannot grow or reproduce on their own. QF
Q: How can I get rid of the horrible smell from the spillage on the back seat of my car?

Q: I visit my father-in-law twice weekly, often on the way back from the school run with my children. He is very frail and suffers from tremors and clearly has problems with spills and misses around the toilet. The smell can be quite overwhelming as he has cleaning help only once per week. Mrs HJ, Liverpool
A: You could ask his cleaning helper to sprinkle a layer of Aromatic Absorbent Granules around the base of the pedestal which will catch the spills and help prevent them becoming malodorous. They are quick and easy for the cleaner to sweep up when they do come. You could ask him to use the Bio one odour eliminator + surface cleaner too, after using the toilet. It is completely natural and can be sprayed in the air and around the toilet. The scent is stunning and helps remove malodour. Quentin Steele (QS)
Q: I visit my friend regularly who has dementia and is cared for by her husband. She likes me to hold her hand but there are often signs of toilet contamination. What can I do to discreetly deal with this as it distresses me a lot. Mrs AJ, Nottingham
A: The Hand and Nail Barrier cream is designed to put a layer of protection on your skin, to prevent contamination penetrating your skin. It smells amazing and does not need any water. It is easy to massage into your hand and then into her hands and then wipe off with a tissue. Julie Foster (JF)

If contamination around the nails is a problem apply the Hand And Nail Guard cream before you start. JF

Q I live alone and have recently been diagnosed with cancer.

Q: Why should I use Nitrile Rubber Gloves and not Latex?
A: Nitrile gloves are made out of synthetic rubber and are an ideal alternative when latex allergies are a concern. Nitrile gloves are the superior glove when it comes to puncture resistance and are often referred to as “ Medical Grade”. They also provide better chemical and bio-hazard protection compared to latex gloves. QF
Q: How can I avoid retching when I have to attend to some of the “accidents” that have happened to my mother in her bathroom?
A: These situations are always difficult, but the Nose Guard Aromatic Balm, supplied in a 30ml jar by Aroma Care Solutions really does help. It has a fresh menthol fragrance, coming from a blend of Tee tree Oils and Eucalyptus essential oils. This fragrance helps to keep at bay the malodours caused by these “accidents”, and if used with a Bio one odour eliminator + surface cleanser, sprayed into the air and on the surfaces it will make the task easier.
