The Science

We took water and made it into a powerful surface cleaner. One that's better for you, your family, and the planet. Here's how it works.


Ionization is the process of adding ions to water using electricity. Adding ions takes pure water and makes it either acidic (low pH) or basic (high pH). Our water has a minimum pH of 13.2.

The Environment

All our inputs are food grade and our containers are designed to last for multiple refills. Our biggest impacts are the power we use and shipping, and we're always working to be better.

pH Scale

The pH scale is a logarithmic scale from 1 to 14. Anything above 7 is considered basic. Our products are all highly basic, falling somewhere between ammonia and sodium hydroxide on the scale.


While our products are hard on grease and grime, they aren't hard on you, your family or your pets. There are no added chemicals or scents, and they dilute easily with water. 


Fun fact: We had our Extra Strength cleaner tested at a Health Canada approved lab. Here are results against common kitchen germs. As you can see Blue Dot passed every test.

Safe on dishes

Blue Dot cleaners are great on dishes. Grease and cooked on food come off easily with our Extra Strength cleaner, without any soapy residue or extra chemicals.
