The Original Cleaner Cartridge Technology, JAWS Cuts Plastic Waste: Commercial Cleaning Strength that is Safe for Residential Homes

March 20, 2023

JAWS, the Just Add Water System, is an innovative cleaning solution that reduces single-use plastic spray bottles. Designed to provide a child and pet-safe clean for homes, apartments, consumers, and small business owners favor the cost-saving effectiveness of JAWS. It is powerful enough to effectively clean high-traffic buildings, yet gentle on household surfaces without harmful or harsh ingredients.

Bruce Yacko is the Owner and CEO of JAWS International, Ltd, which he formed in 2002 after serving an 11-year term at the helm of Canberra Corporation. As the leader and chief visionary for JAWS, he and his team remain committed to creating sustainable, eco-friendly cleaning products through interchangeable cartridge technology, thus changing the way in which the world cleans on both commercial and consumer levels.

Millions of spray bottles are discarded every year. JAWS eco-friendly cleaning system reduces single-use plastic spray bottles while providing high performance, cleaning concentrate in a smart, easy, and safe dilution system. Every time a JAWS child-resistant refill pod of cleaning concentrate is dropped into a reusable JAWS spray bottle, one less plastic bottle enters the waste stream. Every JAWS refill Pod saves 83% of plastic versus traditional spray bottles.

The JAWS Just add Water System is saving resources at every step. Ready-to-use cleaning products are mostly water. Why pay to ship water when consumers have a water source at home? JAWS bottles ship empty along with the refill pods that are small and very lightweight. This helps save fuel during shipping. Ready-to use-bottles of cleaner are heavier, which means more fuel is used to ship water. JAWS is also more convenient for consumers because they carry less water weight home from the retail store, and because the pod is so small, they save on storage space.

Diluting JAWS cleaning solutions is as simple as placing a pod filled with cleaning concentrate into a reusable JAWS spray bottle filled with tap water and twisting on the sprayer. There is no measuring, pouring, or spilling. The refill pod is child-resistant so users will never come into direct contact with the cleaning concentrate. The self-contained, child-resistant refill pods are designed to be spill-proof and easy to use. Drop a pod into the reusable plastic spray bottle filled with tap water and create a perfectly mixed bottle of effective cleaning solution each time.

JAWS offers eight cleaning solutions including Multi-Purpose Cleaner, Disinfectant Cleaner, Glass Cleaner, Foaming Bathroom Cleaner, Kitchen Cleaner, Daily Shower Cleaner, Hardwood Floor Cleaner, Granite Cleaner & Polish. Every JAWS cleaning solution is color-coded for easy identification.

JAWS cleaning formulas are among the EPA Safer Choice Recognized Formulas. (EPA's) Safer Choice label helps consumers and commercial buyers identify products with safer chemical ingredients, without sacrificing quality or performance. Only the safest possible functional ingredients are allowed in products with the Safer Choice label.
