A-Ben-A-Qui Universal Cleaner is an environmentally certified multi-purpose paste that cleans and polishes in one operation. It is very cost effective and will replace many of your liquids and aerosols that you currently use.

A-ben-A-Qui Universal Cleaner is certified by the Chlorine Free Product Association and is Childsafe Certified, exceeding all standards in both organizations. A-Ben-A-Qui was developed in Vermont in 1951, making A-Ben-A-Qui one of the oldest environmentally preferable cleaners in the United States. The paste was initially developed as a multi-purpose cleaner for Gas service stations along the Eastern Coast of the United States.

Significant growth of A-Ben-Qui paste occurred during the early 1990's, with successful growth in Canada and Europe, resulting in our company slogan of "Used around the World"!

A-Ben-A-Qui is a multi-purpose product that safely and easily removes stubborn stains and marks without the use of harmful caustics or solvents.

Removes: Indelible ink, graffiti, permanent marker, rust, iron and calcium stains, soap, scum & scale.

As we learn more about the links between chemical exposures and human health, physicians and researchers are looking closely at the products used to clean schools, where children, as well as teachers and staff, spend many hours each day. School districts across the country are adopting policies requiring the use of "green" products to clean their facilities.

 But the term "green" has not been clearly defined. Some petrochemical manufacturers are simply diluting their original formulas with water and calling them "green," despite the fact that petrochemicals in diluted formulations still present the risk of chronic low level exposures. Bio-based cleaners, without fragrances or dyes, are becoming widely accepted as safe and effective alternatives.

 To help decision makers understand this important issue, The Grassrootes Environmental Organization of New York has lead the way and have created a resource document on green cleaning products called The Childsafe Guidelines. This document grew out of the green purchasing guidelines originally established several years ago by the EPA and the Department of the Interior which promoted bio-based products, and has been updated by Grassroots based on the latest medical research, discussions with facilities directors, and information from manufacturers. It is important to note that the State of New York who have lead the way in mandating “green Cleaning” have adopted the Child Safe Guidelines developed by this grassroots organization.
