MACK BioPods FAQs
Introducing the new, biotech cleaners by MACK.
Bringing something new to the market, MACK have designed these cleaners to be incredibly effective while being plastic-free and affordable.
How do MACK BioPods work?
With millions of helpers is how! Using good bacteria, MACK have created these effective cleaners that keep working for up to 28 days after the first clean.
Initially, the cleaning is done by fermentation extracts, enzymes and green surfactants. These highly biodegradable actives instantly lift dirt, oil or grease and grime from the surfaces.
Then the natural good bacteria gets to work digesting the dissolved dirt and grime, eliminating odours. The process causes the production of more good bacteria, more enzymes, carbon dioxide and water - nothing harmful at all!
The bacteria continue cleaning days after the initial clean creating a 'biofilm'.
It is important to note that many traditional cleaners, which contain chemicals, will kill the biofilm that has built up. As a result, it is important, once you start, to remember to ‘Keep It MACK’!
Are MACK BioPods eco-friendly?
Yes! They tick all the boxes. They're vegan, cruelty-free, plastic-free and made in the UK.
They also contain no palm oil and all the ingredients are fully biodegradable.
Reduce plastic waste and harsh chemicals by making the switch to MACK BioPods!
Do MACK products include stickers?
Only on the products that need a spray bottle - and don't worry, they're plastic free!
I have a septic tank, can I use them?
Yes! BioPods are septic tank friendly.
How long do they last?
Once diluted, the cleaners remain effective for up to three months.

Drain Unblocker (Dr Dre'n):
This is a citrus scented formula that clears slow moving drains caused by build ups of soap scum, hair and debris. The enzymatic action will break down the substances that cause the blockage to aid the flow of wastewater.

Dissolve Hairy Scumbag in a 1 litre jug of warm water and pour approx 250ml down each plug hole. Allow 4 hours before you use the sink or drain to let the enzymes and the Million Little Helpers (good bacteria) to do their work.
Toilet Cleaner (To Rimfinity):
Where conventional toilet cleaners don't break down uric acid, this formula and it's million helpers does.
To use, grab a clean squeezy bottle or an empty toilet cleaning gel bottle and give it a good clean out making sure it's no smaller than 500ml but no bigger than 1L.
Pop in the BioPod, fill half-way with warm water and allow to dissolve and bubble up. Then fill to the brim, tip it upside down and back up again and leave for at least 2 hours. The longer you leave it, the gloopier and stickier it becomes, so even better adhesion to the toilet bowl.
