Frequently Asked Questions
1. What makes Approach so unique?
Approach is an exclusive formulation of many different natural extracts derived from plants and minerals, in combination with a proprietary process for stabilization. This major breakthrough has made the formulation of Approach unlike any other product available. Approach has been tested and proven not only in the United States but also in Europe and the Orient.
2. What is meant that Approach is formulated with extracts from plants and minerals, and why are these better than other formulations?
Approach contains fermented vegetable extracts that are many times more effective than other products. Most importantly, since Approach’s active ingredients are natural, vegetable derived, and highly pure, it is the safest organic odor eliminating formula available.
3. Is Approach approved by EPA and FDA?
Approach does not require an EPA rating. It also requires no FDA approval because it makes no medical claims, and is not recommended for internal use. It is neither a food nor a drug; it is an odor eliminator. However, Approach is approved by the USDA.
4. Does Approach have a bacteriostatic capability?
Approach works differently than many products. Approach’s proprietary fermented vegetable extracts greatly accelerate the natural biodegradation of organic substances. This rapid action interferes with odors caused by bacteria and other micro-organisms.
5. How long does it take Approach to achieve complete odor elimination?
Depending on odor source, Approach can require as little as a few seconds, and up to two minutes to biologically neutralize material residues and render them odorless.
6. What makes Approach so effective, yet so safe?
Approach is concentrated and contains more active ingredients than ordinary odor elimination products. This means that it will neutralize a greater variety of organic odors, and do so more effectively.
7. Does Approach contain proteases?
No. Proteases are a cheap and abundant class of ingredients that are generally irritating to human skin and mucous membranes. They are widely used by detergent manufacturers and some odor control product manufacturers in the sanitary supply industry.
8. Will Approach stain clothing or other fabrics?
Approach may be used on or around all water-safe fabrics and surfaces.
9. Is Approach an effective cleaner?

10. Can Approach be used as an air-freshener?
Using Approach as a general air-freshener for bathrooms, sick rooms, pet areas and locations experiencing tobacco smoke odors will deliver effective results.
11. What precautions need to be taken with Approach?
not leave Approach in a hot car or other area where temperatures may exceed
160ºF (72ºC ), as this will seriously erode efficacy.
