Simple Clean

The Benefits of Tidal SimpleClean

If you have been in the market for multi-purpose green degreasers, Tidal SimpleClean is the perfect product for you. This alkaline solution, primarily composed of 2-butoxyethanol (5%-10% by weight) and a proprietary surfactant blend (1%-5% by weight), efficiently removes mold, mildew, grease, and dirt from a variety of surfaces, such as grills, stovetops, sinks, carpets, engines, and vehicles.  

How to Use Tidal SimpleClean 

Because Tidal SimpleClean is a powerful cleaner, spot test it on a small portion of the desired surface before applying. Refer to its Safety Data Sheet for guidelines on how to properly and safely use the product, as well as what to do if spills or eye/skin contact occur.   

The degree to which Tidal SimpleClean should be diluted depends on what surface is being cleaned. For surfaces such as grills, ovens, sinks, wheels, and concrete, it can be used without dilution. For stovetops, toilets, and general cleaning, it should be diluted to a 1:10 concentration. For vehicles, vinyl floors, stainless steel, carpets, and walls, it should be diluted to a 1:30 to 1:50 concentration. Finally, for glass, mirrors, and windshields, it should be diluted to a 1:150 concentration. 

Fully wet down the surface to be cleaned. Apply Tidal SimpleClean and let sit for 1-2 minutes. Then, rinse off. Do not allow Tidal SimpleClean to dry on the surface before rinsing. Additionally, heavily soiled surfaces may require scrubbing prior to rinsing.

The History of Recycling

 What is Recycling? 

Recycling is converting or repurposing waste into a new, usable product, allowing its lifespan to provide a variety of uses—eliminating waste. 

The Origin of Recycling  

Due to a lack of resources, this method, recusing/recycling became a common practice. It is said that there is no particular person who can take credit for the process of recycling but the earliest forms of this practice date back to ancient times. With the timeline dating back several centuries ago, the evolution of recycling is drastic.  

Throughout history, different areas of the world have gone about recycling a bit differently due to resources and relativity. 

A Brief Recycling Timeline 

While it is possible to go on and on about the history of recycling, this breakdown will give you a gist of the adaptation and evolvement. It is important to keep in mind that recycling at times (i.e., during war) had to be utilized due to shortages. It is also important to keep in mind that depending on the time and the circumstances, the popularity of recycling fluctuated. 

Origins and Types of Recycling  

  • Recycling of paper 
  • Everyday essentials  
  • Waste removal/processes

The late 1600s-1800s 

  • Upcycling recycled cloth and rags 
  • Collection of waste, metals, and of course, paper

The 1900s 

  • Recycling bins introduced, Green Movement, First Earth Day 
  • Recycling laws were introduced (via Congress due to waste becoming a developing issue) 
  • Reuse and recycling programs  
  • Sortation plants for waste 
  • The trend of single-use items 
  • Incentives for recycling

In Recent Years

  • Reusable bags and cups 
  • Paper products begin to replace plastic 
  • The link between waste and climate change 
  • Recycling of electronics 
  • Banning of plastic bags in certain states 
  • Continued awareness of waste, and the impact it has on the environment 

Why Should You Make A Change? 

You should recycle because it’s a choice that will pay off in the long run! There is no doubt that the three R’s: Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle (a phrase created during the 1900s) hold weight and their payout is worth it!

What are the 4 Steps of Water Treatment

Water treatment follows a process of four steps. Follow along with the Ecolink team as we walk you through the 4 steps of water treatment. If you already know what you’re looking for, click show now below to browse our product selection!

water treatment


The four most common steps of water treatment include: 

  1. Coagulation and Flocculation 
  2. Sedimentation 
  3. Filtration 
  4. Disinfection 

A breakdown of each of the four steps in the water treatment process is described below. Additional steps may be added depending on the final use of the water.  

  • Coagulation and Flocculation 

Coagulation is the first step in water treatment and uses positively charged chemicals added to the water to neutralize negative charges held by solids. After neutralization, smaller particles bind with the added chemicals to form larger particles. 

Flocculation follows coagulation. The larger particles formed from coagulation begin a gentle mixing process, called flocculation. The larger particles collide, binding with each other to form larger, visible particles called flocs. They continue to grow as mixing continues until they reach an optimal size for the next step in water treatment. 

  • Sedimentation 

The floc and water mixture from the previous step is held in a tank to give the suspended particles time to settle due to the bottom of the tank due to gravity. The more time the water is undisturbed, the more particles will settle. Coagulation and flocculation make the sedimentation process more effective in separating since it increases the size of the particles.  

  • Filtration 

After sedimentation occurs, the water is almost clear. Filtration is used to remove the smaller dissolved particles that are in the clear water. Some types of dissolved particles include: 

  • Dust 
  • Chemicals 
  • Bacteria 
  • Parasites 

To filter out the dissolved particles, the water is passed through materials that vary in size and composition. Common materials used are sand, charcoal, and gravel. The flow rate of water is dependent on what is expected to be removed from the water using specific materials.  

  • Disinfection 

The final stage of water treatment involves adding a disinfectant to the water. The purpose of disinfection is to oxidize and eliminate any remaining organic matter to prevent the spread of bacteria and parasites. Disinfection also helps protect the water from other bacteria it may encounter during distribution.

Undercarriage cleaners

The Benefits of Salt Slayer

Tidal Salt Slayer is an acidic, industrial-grade cleaning solution that primarily consists of sodium hyposulfite (10%-20% by weight). It cleanses and neutralizes surfaces to remove salt crystals and hamper their formation. It can be applied to cars’ undercarriages, polished aluminum, brass, plastic, painted surfaces, and glass.    

How Do I Use An Undercarriage Cleaner?   

Tidal Salt Slayer is simple to use! Since it is a highly concentrated product, it must first be diluted to a concentration of 1:20. Next, it can be applied to the desired surface with low pressure. It can then be rinsed off with a pressure washer; however, rinsing is optional.   

Why Should I Buy Tidal Salt Slayer?

  • Low instability 
  • Available in a 55-gallon drum
