|Product Technical Bulletin|
ALKEN® TREAT-A-LOO 1, quadruple-strength concentrate provides a safe, natural method for control of odors, as well as a reduction in waste volume in stand-alone portable toilets or built-in toilets aboard ships, boats, RVs, motor homes, trains, buses or airplanes. ALKEN® TREAT-A-LOO 1 contains nine (9) strains of non-pathogenic, all-natural, endospore-forming Bacillus cultures, Yucca Schidigera leaf extract and coconut-based surfactants, an oxygenating nutrient bio-stimulant for anaerobic environments, a delightfully sweet and flirtatious "black cherry burst" fragrance, and a minimal-staining blue polymer dye, combined to rapidly and thoroughly control the odors and appearance of human wastes in toilets. Active Aloe®, the most biologically active form of Aloe Vera leaf extract, further enhances the formula by stimulating the included microbes to faster activity as it enhances the binding of odors. ALKEN® TREAT-A-LOO 1 contains no toxic ingredients and produces a waste that is acceptable at most disposal facilities.

|To Resell Diluted Product:|
Stir pail thoroughly for thirty (30) minutes before dispensing. A paint stirring drill attachment works well for this application if manufacturing area lacks overhead stirrers. Use the entire contents of 5 gallon pail or 55 gallon drum, when blending to produce finished product. Dilute one part of ALKEN® TREAT-A-LOO 1 with three (3) parts of chlorine-free tap-water and bottle it. Label product to use 6 ounces (118 ml) of this diluted version for every five(5) gallons of water in portable toilets and marine or RV holding tanks. This will provide a product with dosage more comparable to competing products, if your clients prefer to continue the dosage they are accustomed to applying.
ALKEN® TREAT-A-LOO 1 is packaged in 5-gallon plastic pails. Store in a cool place. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and open wounds. Wash hands with soap and water after handling. If measuring and pouring concentrated product for diluted repackaging, wear latex gloves to avoid staining your hands with the concentrated blue dye. We also recommend wearing old clothing during dispensing, as splashed product will rapidly dye cotton fabric.
Minimum order of Treat-A-Loo is 5 x 5 gallon pails or 1 x 55 gallon drum.
