The Costa Rican firm of Florex, a company that produces environment-friendly cleaning products, has opened export to Guatemala and has begun paperwork to export to El Salvador.
Five Florex products will be sold in Guatemala at Walmart and at a supermarket with the largest sales in the region. The firm hopes to have the the brands' complete marketing strategy worked out by February, 2012.
The five products are Deterfresh, a clothing detergent, EcoForce floral disinfectant concentrate, grease-cutting Eco Power, Natural Bright dish washing soap and Softly Natural fabric softener.
Florex has in the past has produced industrial cleaners with less environmental impact and received an ecological prize in 2009.
Note: Readers who have septic tanks would be wise to look to such products for their cleaning needs. These tanks use bacteria to "digest" liquid and solid wastes. Harsh disinfectants such as chlorine kill the bacteria.
Owners of septic tanks should never have to pump them out if they are well-made because the process is automatic, leaving only water to seep into the drain field. If you are not certain your septic tank is functioning well, add a spoonful of baking powder (levadura de hornear, in Spanish) to the toilet bowel occasionally.
