The PumMaX(TM) line of products is made from pumice, a natural mineral from the earth’s crust. It is all natural and contains no detergents, solvents or harsh chemicals. Pumice has been used as an abrasive exfoliant for centuries and is commonly used today in many households throughout the world. When ground to a fine powder its spiny molecules gently break the stains, dirt, grime and oils away from the surfaces of almost anything. Strong enough to clean oil and tar stains from boats and clean barbecue grills, it is safe enough to wash dishes, gentle enough to clean a child’s hands and, when mixed with water, will not scratch glass or mirrors. It leaves no chemical residue. The product owner is presently reviewing whether it can effectively and safely be used in animal rescue in situations such as oil spills and similar disasters.
