Green Cleaner kills broad mites, russet mites, spider mites and their eggs, aphids, thrips, white flies and powdery mildew on contact. Green Cleaner is 100 percent concentrate product and can be used as a solution to dip tender new cuttings in, to prevent garden contamination when outsourcing plant starts, and can be used from start through harvest as a treatment. We start with soybean oil and sodium lauryl sulfate. The soybean oil acts to quickly suffocate pests, such as spider mites, broad mites, and russet mites, while the sodium lauryl sulfate coats bugs to immobilize them.
Green Cleaner is very effective against the common fungus, powdery mildew. Powdery mildew is a problem so prevalent, that it effects growers from coast to coast, and is a constant source of irritation to gardeners in temperamental climates where humidity is difficult to control. PM is a disease caused by different species of fungi. Each species attacks specific or wide varieties of plants. The asexual production of spores can reproduce in as little as 48 hours. The spores move from plant to plant by wind, insect contact, and even gardeners. Many times outsourcing new plants and bringing them into your garden can bring in unwarranted spores of PM. Infection is favored in high humidity (50-90%), especially during nighttime or “lights off” hours, when temperatures can fluctuate between 60-80 degrees Fahrenheit.
The symptoms of PM, well known to experienced growers, appear in the form of white circular spots that grow as the threadlike mycelium—fungal filaments, spread over plant and leaf surfaces. This gives the fungi a “powdery” appearance, hence the name “powdery mildew”.
Green Cleaner suppresses and limits spore reproduction.
When using Green Cleaner as a foliar application, make sure to fully coat all plant surfaces, as it only kills bugs that it comes into contact with. We recommend spraying it a couple of days in a row to ensure full coverage and total extermination of the pest population.
GREEN CLEANER COLOR CHANGE
We want to let everyone know that the product solution is now slightly darker, going from neon green to a more teal green. The formulation has in no way changed. We simply have a new source for one of the inputs and the green coloring is just a little darker. It’s the same product with the same results. Don’t worry, mix and spray away. The color may have slightly changed, but the pest killing power is one and the same!
Thanks for all your support and happy pest killing!

Shake Green Cleaner very well before measuring and again after adding to water. Shake every few minutes while applying. Spray while lights are off or early in the morning(outdoors), DO NOT spray under direct light/sunlight. For emergencies , if you must use in late flower (last 2-3 weeks), remember that it is better to spray a light mix (1/2 oz per gallon)
We recommend applying Green Cleaner mixed at the rate necessary for the application to a small area of the garden (1-5 plants) as a cautionary step. Use lower dilution ratios of plants exhibit signs of damage or stress.
