In the 1980s, with still little awareness about the negative health and environmental impacts of toxin-rich cleaners, one man felt that something wasn’t right. A sales executive for a chemical supply company, at the time, Jim Rimer grew disturbed by the harmful side effects he witnessed among customers and colleagues, from skin rashes to respiratory disease and worse. So when his attempts to implement safety and educational trainings on the use of those products led to his firing, he vowed to find non-toxic, effective alternatives, and Biokleen was born.
At Biokleen, we’ve built our legacy on highly effective cleaning products that don’t use—and don’t need—toxic chemicals. Initially founded to make plant-based, non-caustic cleaners for professional services and janitors, we bring those same powerful formulas to families and homes across America today. As part of that commitment, all Biokleen products are free of phosphates, chlorine, ammonia, petroleum solvents, alcohol, butyl, glycol ether, brighteners, artificial colors, artificial fragrance. We believe that a house free of toxins is a home full of love.
