Product FAQs

  • Can the EC3 Mold Solution Spray nozzle be adjusted to produce a mist or a direct stream?
  • Yes, but the nozzle is very sensitive. If you turn the nozzle very slightly to the right from the closed position, it will produce a wider mist. If you continue to twist the nozzle all the way to the open (right) position, it will produce a narrower, more direct stream.
  • Can I use the EC3 Mold Solution Spray on stuffed animals/toys?
  • Yes, EC3 Mold Solution Spray can be used on all hard and soft surfaces including pets. The Spray is non-toxic, doesn’t contain harmful chemicals and is safe for use on all materials. Additionally, if a toy/stuffed animal is washable, you can wash it in your washing machine and use the EC3 Laundry Additive per package instructions. That method is actually preferred for stuffed animals, because it allows a deeper clean and for the product to penetrate into the stuffing material. Just make sure to dry it thoroughly at high heat in a dryer afterwards.
  • Can I use the EC3 Mold Solution Concentrate in Carpet Cleaner?
  • Yes. Dilute the EC3 Mold Solution Concentrate first per package instructions, then add it into your carpet cleaner as you would the carpet cleaning solution.
  • Can I use EC3 Mold Solution Concentrate for laundry?
  • Yes. Use approximately 2-4 ounces, adjusting your amount according to the size of the load. If you can’t tolerate tea-tree oil, this would be the better alternative.
  • Is the EC3 Mold Solution Concentrate ok to use on my cat for bathing her?
  • Yes, but we suggest first bathing your cat as you would normally with a shampoo or soap. Then, use the EC3 Mold Solution Concentrate diluted per package instructions to mist her fur. Allow the spray to air dry completely.
  • Is the CitriDrops Dietary Supplement the same as the CitriDrops Nasal Spray?
  • No. CitriDrops Nasal Spray is designed exclusively for use in the nose. It provides relief from sinusitis and mold allergy symptoms. It is designed to soothe and decongest the nasal passages. It also reduces inflammation and sinus swelling caused by molds, bacteria, pollen and other irritants. For more information and a list of ingredients, click here. (link to CDNS product page)

    CitriDrops Dietary Supplement are drops that can be used orally as a digestive aid, or intranasally when added to a nasal wash. The drops are a proprietary blend of pure citrus extracts that have been effectively used for centuries to aid the immune system in fighting fungal, viral, and bacterial pathogens. The drops are safe for both children and adults, and are designed not to create fungal or bacterial resistance, even after long-term use. For more information and uses, click here.
  • How often should I fog my home?
  • You can fog as frequently as you like. The frequency will be dependent on the person and environmental conditions. You should always make sure to properly ventilate after fogging, so that all surfaces dry completely. Most people fog once per month for mold maintenance in a non-contaminated environment. If the indoor space needs professional remediation, you can fog as often as often as needed until you can get the work completed, or get to a safe environment. Remember, if there is an active water source, or visible mold growth, fogging is only a Band-Aid solution. The cause for the mold growth must be fixed and the space must be professionally remediated to be safe long-term. To learn more about fogging, click here.
  • How many times can I fog with a single bottle of EC3 Mold Solution Concentrate?
  • One bottle of EC3 Mold Solution Concentrate will make one gallon of solution. When set to the lowest output setting, it takes 50 minutes for the EC3 Sani+Tizer fogger to disperse 1 gallon of solution. For a 1,500-square-foot home, you should be able to fog the entire interior approximately 2-3 times with one bottle of Mold Solution Concentrate.
  • Do you sell more than one type of fogger?
  • We sell one fogger, the EC3 Sani+Tizer. This fogger (110V) is an ultra-low volume sprayer specifically designed to efficiently apply antibacterial, deodorizing, and mold abatement solutions to indoor spaces. To learn more, click here.
  • Should I test my home before fogging?
  • We always recommend testing before fogging. It is a great way to see your initial mold counts, and then to see what fogging “dose” is best for your space. You can also test intermittently after fogging to see when and how often you need to fog again to maintain a healthy indoor space. To learn more, click here.
  • Will the Sani-Tizer Fogger work in my country?
  • Our fogger is 110V. We do not recommend using it with 220V.
  • Are there instructions on how to use the fogger?
  • Yes, there is a video on our website. To view it, click here.
  • I have condensation in my test plates, is this normal?
  • Yes, temperature change causes condensation, but will not affect the test results.
  • I do not see any growth on my test plates. Is this normal?
  • It is possible for a test to have no mold growth at all. This would typically indicate that your mold spore count was low at the time of testing. Please make sure you follow the instructions carefully. You can always do things to stir up dust and to agitate the air in a room prior to testing to make sure that mold spores are airborne and able to be captured on the test plates. Additionally, you can test again to confirm your initial results.
  • Do the test plates only work for mold?
  • Yes, our plates are designed with a specially-formulated plate agar to culture mold only.
  • How many rooms can be tested with the mold diagnostic test kit? Does the single diagnostic test kit mean that there is one dish for one room? What is the difference between the diagnostic screening kits with 6 dishes and the EC3 Screening Kit with 6 dishes?
  • You will need a new plate for each room you wish to test. The single kit has one test plate. The diagnostic test kits are sent to a lab for culturing and analysis. The mold counts and types of mold present on your test plates will be emailed directly to you in a detailed report from the lab. The EC3 test kit is less expensive, because you take the samples, and then count the mold colonies present on the plates after 5 days of incubation. These kits come with a detailed reference guide to determine your test results, but are not sent to a lab for professional analysis. Many people who are mold-sensitive like to use the EC3 plates as a means of monitoring mold counts in their indoor environments. Their lower price-point makes frequent testing more feasible.
  • Do the screening test plates include a laboratory fee?
  • No, the screening test plates are just for screening. They do not include the laboratory fee. If you wish to have your plates analyzed, you will need to purchase the diagnostic test plates which do include the laboratory fee. To learn more, click here.
  • The Laundry Additive looks different than my last bottle.
  • When the Laundry Additive is first produced it has a yellow color. It does darken over time; this is normal and does not affect the product’s efficacy. To learn more, click here.
  • How many loads can I get out of one bottle of Laundry Additive?
  • If you are using an Energy Efficient Washer, you will get 32 loads. You will get 16 loads in a traditional washing machine. To learn more, click here.
  • Can I wash Wool with Laundry Additive?
  • As long as the wool is machine washable, you can use the Laundry Additive on it. If it is Dry Clean Only, we suggest having the item professionally cleaned, and then thoroughly misting it with the EC3 Mold Solution Spray.
  • Does the Laundry Additive kill ringworm in the laundry?
  • The Laundry Additive has not been tested to kill ringworm. It was designed to rid washables of mold spores and mycotoxins.
  • There is a black/brown color in the wax after burning my EC3 Air Purification Candle. What is this?
  • This is discoloration from the wick. It is normal and will not affect the effectiveness of the candle. To learn more, click here.
  • Is the alcohol in Sinus Defense Gluten Free?
  • Yes. The gluten is removed during the distillation process. To learn more, click here.
  • Are the candles safe for dogs and cats?
  • It should be safe for your animals; however, you will need to practice responsible candle fire safety techniques and ensure the animals can’t access the flame.
  • I live in a rental with fire and smoke detector in every room. Will using the candles trigger the detector's alarm?
  • Burning the candles should not set off smoke detectors; however, it’s possible that the smoke produced by blowing out the candles could trigger the alarm, though. We suggest snuffing the candles out with the lid to extinguish the flames. This prevents smoke and helps the wax to solidify evenly after each burn.
  • Do the candles have a fragrance?
  • The candles do not have a strong fragrance. You may notice a slight, citrus smell, but it is subtle and mild. To learn more, click here.
  • Are your soy candles made from GMO soy?
  • We would like to use wax made from soybeans that are strictly organic or non-GMO, but due to supply issues we can't guarantee it. All of the soy wax in the US is made by just four companies, and none of them currently process organic soy oil into candle wax at this time. We will carry certifiably organic non-GMO soy wax if and when it becomes available. However, we DO guarantee that our wax does not contain any pesticides, herbicides, or toxic material.
  • I am extremely chemically sensitive. Will the EC3 products be safe for me?
  • Our products were designed for people with chemical sensitivities. It is rare for anyone to be negatively affected by our products. We recommend testing the product before using. Apply a small amount to a tissue or towel and dab a small amount on the skin to ensure you can tolerate it. All of our products come with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If for any reason, you cannot tolerate one of our products, you can return it and get your money back. For more information, click here.

  • Yes, you can take our products with other homeopathic products or supplements.
  • Are your products septic safe?
  • Yes.
  • Is it possible to customize a bundle?
  • Unfortunately, we do not currently offer customize bundles.
  • Do the products work on other mycotoxins besides those listed in the report from RealTime Lab?
  • We cannot guarantee that the products will work on mycotoxins not specifically tested by the independent lab. We can tell you that the products have been shown to reduce mold spore counts on surfaces and in the air from Too Numerous to Count to zero with 3 hours of burn time for the candles and 3 minutes of exposure to the solution for surfaces. We encourage our customers to do their own testing before and after product use to see the results. We also offer a 30-day Money-Back Guarantee should you not be completely satisfied with your results.
  • Is it possible that I may feel worse after using your products?
  • It is possible. It is rare and not likely that someone would react to the products. Should that happen, we have a 30-Day Money-Back Guarantee. Just call us, and we will replace the products or refund your money.
  • Can I take all the supplements together?
  • Yes, you can take all our supplements together. They were actually designed to be used together.
  • Do your products have an expiration date?
  • Our homeopathic products do not list expiration dates on the bottles. In the US, the FDA has exempted homeopathic manufacturers from putting expiration dates on their product labels. Homeopathic medicines, when stored properly (away from moisture and excessive heat or cold), can be used for many years. However, we do not hold inventory long on these products. We usually advise customers to use them within 5 years of purchase. Of course, if you ever experience an issue with one of our products, simply phone customer service to get a replacement or to get your money back. The EC3 Concentrate Solution, EC3 Spray, and EC3 Laundry Additive have expiration dates printed on the bottles. The EC3 Mold Screening Test Plates also have expiration dates listed on them. The EC3 Air Purification Candles do not have an expiration date. We also do not hold inventory long on the candles, but advise customers to use them within 2 years of purchase.
  • Can I spray EC3 Mold Solution near or on plants?
  • Yes. The spray should not cause any negative effects to your plants. We do not recommend spraying directly onto the soil of potted plants, though.
  • Are your products safe to use while breastfeeding?
  • We recommend discussing the ingredients of our products with your doctor before using while breastfeeding.
  • Is it safe to be in the house or the same room while I burn the candle?
  • Yes, it is safe to be in the same room as the candle. The candles are designed to burn as clean as possible.
