FAQ

Why do I need a special soap to remove lead residue? Doesn’t regular hand soap do the job?

Clean-All Soap‘s special formula contains an active chelating ingredient that binds with the heavy metals, allowing it to wash off with water. In order to remove the heavy metal residue, you must wash carefully: use enough soap for a rich lather; wash/scrub hands and body for at least 15-20 seconds; rinse and repeat the process.

What about contaminated clothing and surfaces?

Clothing: To remove heavy metal residue, add 1/4 to 1/2 cup Clean-All Soap to contaminated laundry along with regular detergent. Use a second rinse cycle for best results.

Surfaces: To clean all contaminated surfaces, apply Clean-all Soap to a brush or wet cloth. Thoroughly scrub area, then rinse several times with clean water.

The soap will remove these heavy metals after careful washing for 15-20 seconds:

  • Lead
  • Nickel
  • Cobalt
  • Cadmium
  • Aluminum
  • Mercury
  • Gallium
  • Copper
  • Zinc
