What Our Happy Customers Have To Say
“After using other products on a home remodel, we were not able to remove paint and calcium deposits on the bathroom tile. We ordered Eco Orange after watching the YouTube video on how to remove paint and ordered a 32 ounce bottle, heated it up in the microwave, let it sit for 1 minute and the it came right off and the calcium just slid into the cloth.
Thanks Eco Orange, you really are the World’s Greatest Cleaner!”
“My wife, a dedicated clean freak, has a chemical sensitivity and the smells in common household cleaners like Pine Sol, 409 or Mr. Clean severely irritate her throat and lungs to the point she is coughing and wheezing. It never used to be like this until she hit age 35. I think she probably has toxic overload and her body just said, no more. I am serious when I say Eco Orange has been a godsend as a cleaning product around our house. Thank you. ”
“Being a bed and breakfast owner is hard work and requires a lot of attention. We have been using Eco Orange for years and love it. It is a true multipurpose cleaner (which is nice when you have some many things to clean.). We started using it to clean our industrial kitchen hoods due to the grease build up, but then we started using it to remove residue from the tub and shower. We even use it to dissolve the hard white build up on the shower heads, by placing the diluted amount in very hot water for 10-15 minutes. Eco Orange is the best for us and our little business.”
“As a shop foreman, keeping our garage clean is a tough thing to do. We have used other degreasers to remove the oil and grease from our floors, but the biggest things with that was, they were a caustic chemical and really had a bad smell. Not only that, the fumes were enough to kill you. With Eco Orange, there was no harsh smell, no chemical burns to the lungs and eyes, and if we got it on our skin, it didn’t burn. This stuff is amazing and we use A LOT of it. There is no other product that I feel safe using around my kids and and shop dog. Keep up the great work an we love ECO ORANGE!”

Here are some actual questions asked by real people.
Eco Orange is a concentrate. What does that mean?
Simply put, it means you get a whole lot of cleaner in one bottle or jug. A concentrate is something that must be diluted. For Eco Orange, water is needed to activate the product. Your bottle or jug of Eco Orange came with dilution directions on the label. For example, when cleaning kitchen countertops, you would use 1 part Eco Orange and mix with 15 parts water. We recommend you purchase a cheap spray bottle, use a Sharpie to label it, and make your Eco Orange mixture.
A 1 quart bottle (32. fl. oz.) of Eco Orange can make approximately 15 quarts of solution. That’s more than enough to last a year or two.
Is Eco Orange safe to use around children?
Absolutely. Eco Orange contains no toxins, no solvents, no bleach, no acids, no ammonia and no unnatural chemicals. It does not “off-gas” or leave a dangerous odor in the air, nor does it leave any harmful residues and films. Eco Orange is a proprietary formula containing orange oil, plant-derived extracts and surfactants, which is a fancy word for soap.
Is Eco Orange safe to use around pets?
Eco Orange is safe for pets and on surfaces with which your pets may come in contact. If Eco Orange comes in contact with your pets’ fur or skin, as a precaution you should gently wipe or rinse it off with water.
Is Eco Orange a disinfectant/sanitizer?
First, a primer on the difference between a disinfectant and sanitizer. The terms are used interchangeably and cause confusion.
• Disinfectant: Kills, destroys and inactivates germs dwelling on inanimate surfaces such as floors, countertops, etc.
• Sanitizer: Reduces or lessens germs on inanimate surfaces to levels considered food safe by public health codes.
Eco Orange contains orange oil (d-Limonene) and citrus extracts, the acids of which act as a NATURAL sanitizer without the harsh smells or toxic chemicals. Use it all day long to sanitize at a 15:1 ratio.
Eco Orange as a true disinfectant? We can’t make that claim because our formula does not contain bleach, phenols, ammonium compounds, or even hydrogen peroxide – all EPA-registered disinfectants with bleach or phenols being the gold standard.
If you want to make Eco a natural disinfectant, boil some water, pour into a spray bottle (be careful), add Eco Orange concentrate at 15:1. Spray and wipe. Take precautions to prevent scalding yourself when cleaning with this method.
If you absolutely need a one-time, true, medical-grade disinfectant solution for that rare occasion you’re countertop has been exposed to blood-borne pathogens, here’s how to turn Eco Orange into one.
Let’s say someone cuts their fingers chopping onions and it’s a gusher. You will want to add a capful of bleach to a 15:1 Eco dilution in a 26 oz. spray bottle. Spray the area, allow it to “dwell” for 5 minutes (according to the CDC), and wipe it down. It is absolutely safe to add bleach to Eco. No adverse chemical reaction will occur. Make sure to ventilate the area you plan to clean.
Does Eco Orange have a shelf life?
Maybe you bought a bottle years ago and it’s been hidden away in the garage. Well, guess what. It’s still good!
Because there are no harsh, dangerous chemicals in Eco Orange, the formula doesn’t degrade or become dangerous. The only thing we’ve observed with bottle of Eco Orange that are 10+ years old is that the orange color has faded.
Bottom line: Use it. There is no shelf life.
What does it mean that Eco Orange is biodegradable?
It means that the solution will breakdown in the environment and convert to elements typically found in nature.
What are the recommended water dilution ratios?
Do you have any coupons or specials?
Because you landed here at our homepage, you should have seen a little pop-up box offering a 25% off coupon to use on Amazon for our 1 quart bottle or 1 gallon jug. All we ask is for your email address so we can send offers and tips from time to time. We promise never to share your email address and we’ll never spam you.
Does this work on stubborn patio umbrella mildew and stains; if so, at what concentration?
Start with 10:1 — go big at 5:1 if it’s super stubborn. Use it with an abrasive of some sort; one that is not colored so as not rub off on the umbrella. When you get stain and mildew on canvas that’s cooked in the sun for a long time, it can be a beast to remove. The struggle is real!
Is Eco Orange safe for natural stone?
Yes it is, as long as the natural stone, such as marble, has been properly sealed.
Does Eco Orange work on artillery (shotgun) fungus?
Yes, Eco Orange can be used to remove most spores, molds and fungi. We recommend a 20:1 ratio but can be increased as needed.
Here’s the thing about artillery fungus, it will permanently stain, so even though Eco Orange kills the germs, spores and mold, it may not take away the stain depending on how aggravating the fungus is. Even straight bleach will fail at times to remove the stain if it’s bad. Your only choice after disinfecting the fungus, in such cases where the fungus leaves a stain, is to repaint.
Is Eco Orange safe to use in carpet cleaning or floor scrubbing type machines?
Eco Orange is absolutely safe in carpet cleaning machines. Just make sure to dilute with water AND clean/rinse out the reservoir(s) when you’re done with the job. Never let any cleaning product whether it’s Eco Orange or not sit in those machines for long periods between usage.
Does Eco Orange work in cleaning ovens?
Yes it does. Mix a 5:1 (5 parts water, 1 part Eco) solution. Spray it on the dirty surface. Soak it real good. Turn the oven on low 200-250 degrees F, and let it bake in for a bit, but not evaporate. If you have years of grime, we recommend using some sort of scrubbie or Magic Erase sponge and rub in a circular motion only putting as much pressure as needed.
Can you use Eco Orange on clothing to pre-treat stains?
Absolutely. We recommend starting with a 15:1 ratio and do a small test area. Spray it on the area and lightly scrub or rub. Only scrub as hard as you need to so as not to remove the color from the garment. Pre-treat the area immediately for best results. It works great on oil, dirt and food stains.
WARNING: Never use Eco Orange on suede, satin or silk. That’s a no-no.
Will Eco Orange kill the HIV/strep virus in operating rooms?
We don’t advertise Eco Orange for use in hospital surgical suites or operating rooms. We do, however, sell Eco Orange to many doctor’s offices. Because medical facilities likely have specific medical-grade cleaning standards to prevent infection and contamination, we encourage you to check into those requirements.
With that said, Eco Orange does kill the HIV and strep virus, et al. The citrus acid and proprietary surfactants in Eco act as a natural disinfectant. This maybe heresy for us to even suggest this — you can safely add a capful of bleach to an Eco Orange dilution for good measure in an sterile environment. Again, we typically don’t suggest this because that goes against our all-natural, non-toxic, odorless cleaning mission.
What's the best way to use Eco Orange to clean tile floors?
Use a 15-to-1 ratio — 15 parts water and 1 part Eco Orange. And don’t fret if it’s not a perfect ratio. Eyeballing it is just fine as Eco Orange is not a dangerous compound in any way.
If you’re mopping from a bucket, mix your Eco and water in there. There is no need to re-mop with clean water when done. There should be no film or residue left behind if your Eco is properly diluted.
If using a Swiffer mop, grab a spray bottle filled with Eco Orange and water dilution (15:1), spray the tile floor with it, and then mop it up with the Swiffer. If you have some serious baked-in grime on the tile, spray the Eco Orange mixture and let it sit for a minute; it should come right up when you mop.
If by chance you have porous tiles in which black gunk gets in those pores, a pass of the Swiffer won’t reach below tile surface level. And if you are a clean freak, it’s likely that those tiny dirty pores bother might bother you. We recommend that once or twice a year you spray Eco Orange mixture onto the porous tile and employ a Magic Erase sponge in a circular motion. No hard pressure is needed. It comes right out of those porous crevices. It’s amazing.
How about Eco Orange for termite deterrence around my home's perimeter?
We don’t typically advertise Eco Orange as a deterrent for termites, and especially something as serious as termites. We don’t want to be responsible if Eco Orange lets a few critters through. That would hang heavy on our conscience.
That said, to repel them spray a mixture of 2 parts water to 1 part Eco around your perimeter – the d-Limonene, which is in Eco Orange, is known to repel and deter.
Can you use Eco Orange in dishwashers?
YES, as in it won’t hurt the dishwasher in any way. But, NO, we don’t recommend it for these reasons:
1.) Eco Orange is a concentrated liquid and it can’t be properly diluted as required because dishwashers release all of the “chambered” detergent at one time.
2.) Dishwasher liquid soap has added viscosity properties in the blend, so it is designed to lather and give it the ability to “dwell” (linger, hang) on dishes before being rinsed away. Eco Orange Concentrate is not thick, aka viscous.
3.) Eco Orange is not cost effective to use in a dishwasher… BUT if you want to pre-soak something in a 10:1 Eco solution? Now you’re talking MAGIC.
To boost scent, can I add essential oils to Eco Orange without harm or reducing effectiveness?
YES! YES! YES! …. and YES.
Add to your heart’s (and nose’s) content.
I've heard that many churches and community centers buy Eco Orange. Is there a special reason?
We have many disparate businesses and industries that buy Eco Orange. When queried, we have found out that churches and community centers like to use our product because of all the folks frequenting such places. Many people these days have myriad health problems, sensitivities and allergies and so it’s important to go with a nontoxic, mildly-scented cleaner to cater to everyone’s safety.
If you have a moment, read this testimony we received a few month ago:
I used to work at a newspaper company that used Pine-Sol to clean bathrooms, mop the floors, etc., and many tolerated it fine, but for some it made them nauseous, gave them headaches and/or watery eyes. It actually became a human resources issue. Eco Orange would have been a welcome solution back then. — Jenny H., Scranton, PA
Can you use Eco Orange to hand-wash dishes?
YES. Dilute your basin with a 25:1 ratio — 1 part Eco Orange, 25 parts water. Rinse dishes with water per the usual. There is no cause for concern if there is a soap residue due to a poor rinse job (which sometimes happens if in a rush). Just allow dishes to air dry and you’ll be good to go.
Can you use Eco Orange in a pressure washer?
YES. Dilute for sure or you will have a soapy mess! Eco Orange is highly concentrated and becomes activated when mixed with water.
For your job, we recommend 15:1 or 10:1 (10 parts water and 1 part cleaner). It doesn’t have to be an exact science – you can eyeball these things.
We use Eco Orange in our pressure washer to clean the siding of our house and our painted garage floor. In areas where there is auto fluid leak spots, we let it sit for a bit and then use a long handled floor brush and scrub it away.

What are the main ingredients in Eco Orange?
Without getting too scientific and throwing down some big words that are hard to pronounce, Eco Orange contains:
• Cold-Pressed Orange Oil, which contains more than 90% D-Limonene, a biodegradable solvent AND degreaser.
• A mild mineral-based cleanser and brightener
• A natural surfactant, which allows the solution to penetrate the surface or material you are cleaning
All of the ingredients are naturally-derived.
What it DOES NOT contain — SLS, glycols, ethers, butyl, dyes, phosphates, dioxane, caustics, chlorine, DEA or formaldehyde.
Eco Orange is safe and non-toxic for you and your family.
What is cold-pressed orange oil?
Among other non-toxic ingredients, Eco Orange contains oil collected from an orange citrus peel during juice extraction. It is “cold-pressed” meaning that NO heat is applied during the process thus preserving the integrity of the oil.
Fact: Cold-Pressed Orange Oil, which contains more than 90% D-Limonene, is a biodegradable solvent AND degreaser.
Is Eco Orange pure orange oil?
No. It contains some orange oil. And “some” is all you need
When you combine that with our special non-toxic, natural ingredients and surfactants, it makes for a darn powerful all-purpose cleaner AND degreaser, because as you know orange oil is a natural solvent and degreaser
Is Eco Orange safe to ingest?
Do not ingest any cleaning product. Period.
If someone were to swallow our Eco Orange concentrate, drink a glass of milk or water and contact the American Association of Poison Control Centers’ 24-hour hotline at (800) 222-1222. Even non-toxic ingredients may be harmful if swallowed. That’s why we have a child-proof twist cap on our product. Please keep Eco Orange out of reach from children.

What's the best way to use Eco Orange on lime scale?
Lime scale, also known as hard water stains, is probably one of the most toughest jobs for any cleaner. Lime scale happens, for example, when the accumulated water after a shower evaporates and leaves behind natural deposits like minerals on a glass shower door. Soap scum then attaches to it and the problem becomes exacerbated.
Up the potency to 1 part Eco Orange to 5 parts water. Next go buy an abrasive (even Eco Orange needs a little help sometimes). We recommend super-fine grade steel wool #0000. You can find it at most hardware stores like Home Depot. Spray Eco on the area, let it soak in and GENTLY scrub with the wool. Only go as hard as you need to and watch for potential scratching. It is an abrasive so go easy with the elbow grease.
Because Eco Orange is all-natural, there are no caustic chemicals to burn through the lime scale. We think that’s a good thing. Caustic chemicals like ammonia or Lime Away have VOCs and off-gassing, though they will eat through certain stains. In summation, on certain jobs Eco Orange needs a little help in the form of an abrasive (green scrubby, steel wool, Magic Erase sponge) to increase its effectiveness while still keeping your family and surfaces safe.

How do I remove tree sap from a granite walkway?
Grab a 16-ounce (pint) empty spray bottle. Add 3 ounces of Eco Orange. Fill the rest with warm or even hot water. Spray on the area nice and good. Let it soak for a minute or two, and wipe. That should get the job done. As you already know, please don’t use a scrubbie pad or any abrasive on that beautiful granite.

Does Eco Orange have a strong citrus scent?
I want to spray Eco Orange around my yard to deter stray cats. What is the correct dilution for the yard?
We don’t advertise Eco Orange as a cat deterrent in yards or anywhere for that matter. In fact, we heavily promote Eco Orange as being pet-friendly. As such, animals won’t in anyway be repulsed or endangered by Eco Orange no matter the dilution. However, we’re not surprised that folks want to use our versatile cleaning agent for cross-purposes.
While it’s been documented that cats don’t like citrus, citronella, eucalyptus, lavender, and vinegar, try using Eco Orange at 10:1 and add vinegar to it; that sounds like a lethal smelling potion. Though unsightly, you could also try sprinkling actual orange and lemon peels in the cat-traveled areas of your yard — maybe a combination of all the above for a full frontal assault on those pesky strays. We have also heard that lavender Febreze sprayed in the areas you want to protect might work.
Bottom line: Eco Orange could be an expensive solution to this problem. Stick to using it for cleaning.
