Sustainable Cleaning Product Flexes in Gym and at Home

Even before Michigan’s Governor shut down the health clubs last spring, Natalie Erskine, owner of F45 Training facilities in Macomb and West Bloomfield, already knew she had a serious problem.

“What I noticed for myself was that I started to wheeze a lot when I was coming into thestudio,” Says Erskine. “And we have a couple of people who have some level of asthma, whether it be exercise-induced or full-blown asthma and we were all talking about that heavy, wheezy feeling we would get with all of the chemicals that we were using.”

Now, with her studios shut down Erskine saw herself facing a dilemma that didn’t appear to have a desirable outcome.

Says Natalie, “I mean, either we have not a dirty studio but an infected studio or we have this chemical problem, and when you’re working out you’re often on the floor and your face-to-face with the floor cleaner, and I just thought that was the lesser of two evils.”

It was then that Erskine was made aware of Tersano Inc’s SAO (stabilized aqueous zone) dispenser and sustainable cleaning solution through a webinar produced by product distributor Green Science Solutions.

“At this point we were completely shut down”, says Erskine “So, now I’m faced with not only the heavy chemicals but the cost of making my studio compliant when we could re-open. I needed to make sure I had a cost-effective way to do that, and when I found SAO my reaction was, This is too good to be true.”

Erskine purchased two SAO Kit-4’s, one for each studio, had them installed and gave her staff training on how to clean with SAO, but Natalie was not prepared for her staff's reaction to it.

“Our trainers are obsessed with it", says Erskine. "They’re the ones who are in here all the time, and they’re the ones who have to clean between classes. So, when I introduced this system to them there was no reaction, really because I don’t think they believed it!”

Results soon replaced disbelief, just like daily cleaning with SAO not only kept the Covid virus at bay, but it also eliminated the breathing problem that had been afflicting Natalie and her guests.

“It took us two months of cleaning with nothing but the SAO before the soap stopped coming up out of the floor,” Says Erskine. “So, that’s the chemical that people are putting their face on, putting their hands on, every single day when they were working out. And, It didn’t get to this point, but I can imagine that over a couple years of doing that the floors would be ruined.”

Natalie was so impressed with SAO that she now cleans her home with Tersano’s iClean Mini, also purchased through Green Science Solutions, using it not only to replace home cleaning chemicals but also as a sanitizer for the fruits and vegetables she feeds her family.

“Honestly, I can't say enough good things about it. I love it. I’ve reached out to the kids schools, I know they’ve got a lot on their plate right now, but I reached out and really would love to get their schools involved in this,” say Natalie. “It’s just, I don’t remember the last time I believed in a product enough to just shout it from the rooftops, this works, you have to try this!”
