Last month we reviewed the benefits of ready-to-use products. While these products are helpful, there are plenty of advantages to concentrated products as well. While both have pros and cons, today we will talk about why you should stock some concentrated products on your shelves.
Consider concentrated products from an economic standpoint. For example, when you mix your concentrated product, you provide the water. When you purchase an RTU product, you pay someone else to use their water to fill the bottles, adding to the cost.
Concentrated products may cost less. When a product comes ready-to-use, you pay a little more for the convenience. In the end, it comes down to how much product you need at once or how big your project is. Every project or area has different needs, which will determine the best type of cleaner to use.
Concentrated products can also be better for the environment – and storage closets. These products require less space since the packaging is usually smaller. The average 5L concentrate bottle contains the equivalent of 500 ready-to-use bottles.
An added benefit of concentrated products is that you can make one bottle last for months.
Both products have pros and cons, and each has its ideal use. Having a variety of ready-to-use and concentrated products on hand is a smart way to ensure you’re prepared for any problem or cleaning situation that may arise.
