Here’s the Rub on the Grease


We have written many times about the benefits of Purely Green and BioWash and the good these products can bring to the garden and environment.

Here I am with our old growth hemlocks, we call the Grandfathers.  These hemlocks have been attacked by the Wooly Adelgid blight on the US East coast and though many have died, we have saved many, many of ours with Purely Green.

However, I would like to stress that the original purpose of this product was as a degreaser.  Purely Green was created to help degrease birds from the Valduz oil spill.  It was effective on cleaning the birds on a fast low stress way.  It is biodegradable so the process does not harm the water.

The basic science is that Purely Green is composed of such small molecules it cuts through grease and coats surfaces so the grease simply lifts off.

I figured that fatty lipids are a type of oil and tested Purely Green on the Wooly Adelgid.  The liquid soaks right though the cocoons and degreases the fatty lipids in the insect.  The arborist we worked with used a microscope to watch the process and was amazed and very excited.  He has since treated thousands of hemlocks in the area.

Then I figured out that if it dissolved insects in a cocoon, it might also dissolve them out of one.  I tested spraying Purely Green on ants.  Instantly dead!  Purely Green is not an insecticide  but it dissolves the fatty lipids and that makes the insect dead anyway.

Since that test, I spray my flowers and garden with BioWash.

Purely Green is the original cleaning formula.  BioWash contains gentler surfactants and more vegetable oils.

Now there is an interesting experiment going on with BioWash Soil Amendment.   BioWash Soil Amendment is BioWash on steroids, encompassing some out-of-the-box quantum chemistry.

This most exciting test apparently reduces the insect population in coffee farms via systemic applications of BioWash Soil Amendment via the root system.  It appears that ingesting leaves or seeds or juices containing Soil Amendment may dissolve the insect’s internal organs.

The manufacturer of BioWash, Ted Tidwell, wrote:  “In Central America, a difficult beetle is destroying the coffee industry.  A business there is treating a beetle while inside the coffee bean systemically by soaking the coffee tree roots.

“The Central American coffee growers face a devastating insect plague caused by the coffee borer beetle locally known as “Broca”. The female beetle lays her in the young coffee cherry and as the young beetles mature, they literally eat the coffee cherry from within.  This is a prolific problem as several generations of beetle can live within the same coffee cherry.

“The growers had been using a chemical treatment for the Broca beetle that because of the harshness of this chemical, is restricted to three applications per year.  While the chemical treatment yields a near 100% kill rate of the beetles, new beetles return shortly thereafter to re-infect the coffee cherries.  The Insecta Pro did have a slower kill rate but it did have an increased effect after each use that carried over as it was absorbed into the plant’s tissue and phloem. After the chemical treatments had been exhausted, the growers continued with the Insecta Pro treatments every 30 days at a rate of 450/ 1 sprayed directly onto the coffee cherries, branches and surrounding soil. These growers have also taken our recommendation to wash the coffee cherries after harvest and before they are transported to avoid further infection in route to the processing facilities. Additionally, these same growers are now using this system in their nurseries from seed to seedling to inoculate the young plants prior to exposing them to these epidemics in the fields at planting.

“If it works in coffee, its logical that it could work on all vegetation.

“Other farmers have gained benefits with dramatic vegetable yield increases by soaking his soil with Soil Amendment before planting. Significantly, his previous crops required weekly insecticide applications but this test crop required no insecticides.

“More testing and experience is needed for verification but if proven, this avoids air pollution from spraying airborne toxins.

“When proven successful, lasting insect control may be achieved by soaking the roots with a non-fuming, carcinogen-free solution that exceeds EPA’s standards as “Readily Biodegradable.”

“This would eliminate the need of depositing millions of tons of toxic insecticides into the atmosphere. Obviously, the positive environmental impact will be huge.  A full report is attached (1).

This is why we decided to start offering Purely Green, BioWash and BioWash Soil Amendment at our site.  You can see more below.

$150 BioWash Investment Earns $17,700 for Grape Grower

I have encouraged readers to create multiple streams of income doing something they love.  One way to do so is with micro-agriculture projects.

I have been involved in agriculture for many years and one of the secrets I use is BioWash, the manufactured by the same people who created Purely Green.

I have written about BioWash multiple times, but decided to offer this product for two reasons.  One is the story about how a grape grower invested $150 in Biowash and gained a return of $17,700.

The second is a note from the manufacturer of BioWash, our friend Ted Tidwell, who wrote:

The attached BioWash 25 label was just approved as “Suitable for Organic Farming” use,  with approval to display the EcoCert logos.

Labels for BioWash 100 and BioWash Soil Amendment (“BioSoil Amend”) approvals are imminent.

Here is the story of how a grape grower used one gallon of BioWash to earn $17,700.

The 2008, 2009, 2010 & 2011 growing seasons were not profitable for Harry Raby of Raby Farms.

His four acre vineyard produced not a single grape.  He was so disappointed that he told his wife that if it remained barren during the 5th season, he would rip them up and plant alternate crops.

Tanya Reid convinced him to apply one gallon ($150) of BioWash.

The grapes began to form right away and by mid-season a success was clear.

biowash

His BioWashed vines yielded 27.4 tons!  His sales soared to $17,850.00!

After deducting his $150 investment, Harry’s ROI was $17,700!  Not bad for a $150 test.

BioWash is the “Hi-Yield” solution developed and blended by 1st EnviroSafety that we have been writing about at our website for almost 20 years.  The original solution was a degreaser developed to help save birds fouled with oil in the Valdez Oil Spill.  We used this solution called Ted’s Stuff, (we named this after our friend Ted Tidwell who manufatures this wonderful stuff) which we used as a cleaner for just about everything. Then we discovered that this was a spray that removed a blight called Wooly Adelgid, from the hemlock trees at our farm in North Carolina.

BioWash and BioWash Soil Amendment were formulated based around this degreasing solution and has created some wonderful stories of agricultural success.

Here is my own story about BioWash.

I followed my own advice and invested in agriculture buying an orange grove.

The year I made the purchase the grove harvested just over 1,800 boxes.

In our first year we sprayed the grove once with BioWash.   Production rose to 2,400 boxes despite the fact we eliminated a third of the trees.

This means our yield per tree doubled.  The next year we sprayed twice with BioWash and this year our production rose to to 3,400 boxes.

This year I am testing BioWash on our highly acidic mountain soil to see what it does for our tomatoes and squash.

Order BioWash here.

Since shipping is such a large part of the cost, BioWash 100 which is far more concentrated, is a far more economical solution than BioWash 25.  Since its development in 2003, thousands of delighted growers have reported sensational increases in yields and profits.  Even though specific crop yields can never be guaranteed, most growers will see visible growth differences within three weeks and  harvests yielding an extra 20%, 25%, 30%, 35%, and sometimes soaring as high as 50%!  Dilutions of 1 ounce 4 gallons  have produced impressive results.  This means that one gallon produces 534 gallons of usable wash.  This means at $172 for a gallon (includes shipping) the cost is just a bit over 32 cents per gallon.  You cannot beat that price anywhere.

Food For Thought and Better Health With Purely Green

Merri and I take the cleanliness of our food supply seriously.

In North Carolina we eat a lot of wild food and vegetables we grow in our garden.

gary-scott-farming

surrounding our house with lettuce of all types, greens and herbs.

gary-scott-farming

Our greenhouse allows us to start our planting early.

In the spring nature provides us with dandelions and a wonderful lettuce (called branch lettuce) that grows wild in the creek later to be supplemented by Bee Balm and Echinacea for tea.

gary-scott-farming

Here is echinacea and tomatoes growing in front of our meditation room.

Here is a bit of our harvest.

gary-scott-farming

This time of year, we harvest our grapes and collect apples from our many apple trees.  We have acres of…

gary-scott-farming

wild blackberries in the summer and wild mountain strawberries in the late spring.

gary-scott-farming

Our chickens provide us with summer meals like this.

gary-scott-farming

We also have a greenhouse in Florida and start the gardening process again in winter.

In addition we have citrus, grapes, figs, blueberries and loquats that provide us with Florida fruit throughout the year.

These crops, plus trout in North Carolina, bass and panfish from our Florida lake allow us to eat less commercially grown food.

This gardening is fulfilling, provides gentle exercise and we find picking our own food especially satisfying.  Plus there are some enormous health benefits.

Dr. John Douillard at Lifespa.com (1) points out that “Environmental pollutants, cancer causing chemicals, plastics, preservatives, pesticides, heavy metals and industrial waste overwhelm the body’s natural detoxification pathways.  Toxic cloud plumes from burning coal cover most of the United States and lace even our organic vegetables with heavy metals. Pesticides and preservatives have infiltrated their way into almost all the food consumed in America and can store in the body’s fat, including the brain, for years. Industrial wastes have permeated our ground water and can enter our body by simply washing our organic veggies with tap water.  Over time these stored chemicals undermine our immunity, render us susceptible to disease, infection and premature aging.”

This is why Merri and I clean our our vegetables and fruit, especially those we purchase in the store, with Purely Green 25.

I asked our friend, Ted Tidwell, who manufactures Purely Green to explain how this works.

Ted replied:  In order for pesticides to remain on the plant and effective during rains, they are encased in oil.  An ordinary vegetable wash that does not dissolve oil will permit pesticidal residues to remain on the plant and be ingested.

PurelyGreen is powerful enough to dissolve crude oil and tar, so it easily dissolves the oil and removes the poisonous pesticides.  Ted

Merri and I use Purely Green 25, diluted at the rate of two (2) ounces per quart of water is our preferred method for cleaning purchased fresh fruit and vegetables.

We simple spray our fruits and vegetables thoroughly and generously with Purely Green and let it penetrate for several minutes before rinsing.

This removes the oil encrusted toxic chemical pesticides that ordinary veggie washes cannot remove.

This also improves the taste by removing the oil and toxins and extends the freshness and edibility for several additional days.

Purely Green is certified carcinogen free.  Many consumers save the cost of expensive organic produce by removing the insecticides with Purely Green.  This organic cleaner/degreaser helps the environment and poses no threat to humans, animals or marine life.

Recently Ted sent this note to me:  EcoCert International has certified BioWash 25, BioWash 100 and BioWash Soil Amendment as ORGANIC.  This achievement will help enrich hundreds of distributors and thousands of organic growers.

ECOCERT (2) is an organic certification organization, founded in France in 1991. It is based in Europe but conducts inspections in over 80 countries, making it one of the largest organic certification organizations in the world.  The company inspects about 70% of the organic food industry in France and about 30% worldwide. ECOCERT is also a leading certifier of fair trade food, cosmetics and textiles as per ECOCERT Fair Trade Standards.

Congratulations to Ted.  It is great to see other organizations confirm what we have known and have let readers know for decades.

There is also a huge financial savings.  Three quarts of 409 household cleaner delivered by Amazon.com is $16.98 or about $5.66 per quart before shipping.  You then have shipping costs or have to pay to be an Amazon Prime customer for free shipping.  But $5.66 per quart is about the best you’ll get for 409 household cleaner.

One gallon of Purely Green 25 is $96.  This is a concentrate that is mixed 15 to 1 (two ounces per appx. quart 30 ounces of water).  That gallon of Purely Green creates 64 quarts of ready to use at about $1.50 per quart.

If you were to purchase the same amount of a traditional non organic house cleaner (such as Clorox 409) from Amazon.com,  you would pay $266.24 more.  

There is one drawback to the Purely Green products, a high cost of shipping.   Ted does not offer Purely Green in stores and Fedex charges quite a bit for shipping.  The shipping, for a gallon averages out around $26 a gallon and a quart is $16.

You can order one quart or one gallon here.

Purely Green

We are bombarded daily with toxicities of every sort.  We see toxic news.  We are sold and served toxic food.  Much of our water supply contains poisons.  There are chemicals in the air.  Anything we can do to reduce the pollution that gets in our bodies can help us get and maintain natural health.  I hope that sharing this program for Purely Green will help create a cleaner world.
