WHAT IS IT?
LEAF CLEANSER natural liquid soap is a concentrated product of plant origin. Produced with olive oil, without dyes or fragrances, it is obtained by saponification of the long-chain fatty acids present in this natural fat. The nature of this type of long-chain fatty acids gives it the necessary softness to be used in cleaning plants. It is a natural and biodegradable product.
WHAT IS IT USED FOR?
LEAF CLEANSER natural liquid soap is a product for cleaning plants. It is indicated to keep plants clean and shiny, in optimal conditions for photosynthesis. Its nature facilitates the removal of dust, honeydew caused by insects, molds, and fungi, as well as resins and remains of insect seedlings. Regular cleaning of plants allows for the timely detection and control of plant pests.
WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?
LEAF CLEANSER natural soap for plants is a translucent gel soap with a shiny appearance. The natural character of LEAF CLEANSER natural soap for plants can cause slight variations in appearance between different batches. This in no way compromises its effectiveness.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
LEAF CLEANSER natural soap for plants acts as a washing agent, contributing to the dissolution of impurities in water and facilitating their elimination.
When in direct contact with the waxy layer that covers soft-bodied insects, which include the main pests of house plants - aphids, whiteflies, mites, mealybugs, and thrips - LEAF CLEANSER natural soap for plants can lead to irreparable damage to the breathing mechanism that results in insect death.
HOW SHOULD I APPLY IT?
LEAF CLEANSER natural soap for plants must be diluted in water and applied by spraying on the leaves and stems.
Gently shake the LEAF CLEANSER natural soap for plants before preparing the new solution. Apply using a sprayer. Remove excess product with dirt residues with a clean cloth or kitchen paper. Do not use the same cloth or paper on different plants to avoid contamination between plants.
In dirty plants, or plants with many small leaves, use a shower to remove excess product and residues to facilitate correct washing.
Discard the prepared solution after 48 hours.
WHAT IS THE RECOMMENDED DOSE?
LEAF CLEANSER natural soap for plants must be used diluted in water, in a proportion of 4 ml of product for every 100 ml of water (4%). Dilute five pumps from the dosing bottle for every 100 ml of water.
HOW FREQUENTLY SHOULD I APPLY IT?
Plants should be cleaned once a month with LEAF CLEANSER natural soap. The frequency of application can be increased, without exceeding a minimum interval of 4 days between applications, if there is an accumulation of dust on the leaves or if detected the presence of insects on the plant.
WHAT IS ITS YIELD?
Each bottle of LEAF CLEASER natural soap for plants, used as recommended, can prepare 5 liters of cleaning solution.
The average use of 2 sprayers of 200 ml per month corresponds to a product available for approximately 12 months.
WHAT SHOULD I KNOW BEFORE USING IT?
Spraying should preferably be carried out in the morning or at the end of the afternoon, outside the hours of strong sunlight.
Avoid applications on days with temperatures above 28 ºC to avoid the risk of phytotoxicity due to product concentration.
Despite the gentle nature of LEAF CLEANSER natural soap, some plants may be sensitive to its application, especially if these plants are fragile or subject to unfavorable environmental conditions.
Do not apply to plants under water stress due to dryness. Replenish the plant with moisture before using the cleaning soap.
Do not apply to plants under water stress due to waterlogging. Recover the plant before using the cleaning soap.
Do not apply to plants with hairy leaves whose surface is covered with trichomes (hair-like organs).
Avoid applying to recently transplanted plants.
If in doubt, carry out a tolerance test on the product. Apply as recommended on a sheet and wait 48 hours to verify the absence of an adverse reaction.
Removing excess product together with dirt residues, as recommended, significantly reduces the risk of an eventual adverse reaction from the plant.
Some more delicate ferns and some succulents are referred to be intolerant to potassium soap. Do not use the product on these plants without carrying out a test with a more diluted solution at 1% (1 ml of product per 100 ml), which corresponds to one pump per 100 ml of water.
DOES IT PRESENT RISKS TO PEOPLE OR ANIMALS?
When used according to the recommendations, LEAF CLEANSER natural soap for plants does not pose any risks to the health of people and animals.

DOES IT PRESENT A RISK TO THE ENVIRONMENT?
Due to its selective action, LEAF CLEANSER natural soap for plants is not harmful to beneficial insects such as bees and ladybugs. Its harmful consequence is only felt on soft-bodied insects, including the main pests of house plants such as aphids, whiteflies, mites, mealybugs, and thrips.
Due to its organic nature and the absence of additives and fragrances in its composition, molecules of LEAF CLEANSER natural soap for plants are biodegradable, thus being decomposed by natural biological processes without risk to the environment.
HOW SHOULD I STORE IT?
Keep LEAF CLEANSER natural soap for plants in its original packaging away from direct sunlight.
WHAT MAKES IT A SUSTAINABLE PRODUCT?
On average, each pack of LEAF CLEANSER natural soap for plants breathes new life into around 50 ml of virgin olive oil at the end of its useful life, unfit for human consumption, which would potentially be wasted.
The concentrated formulation contributes to reducing the environmental impact in terms of packaging and transport.
Reusable packaging use contributes to reducing the environmental impact of single-use packaging.
Its use serves to keep plants clean and cared for and aims to contribute to prolonging their healthy life. Each saved plant contributes to the saving of the many resources used in its production.
