Highly Effective

What makes Tough & Tender so effective?

Tough & Tender uses a proprietary three-phase cleaning formula:

1.  Reduces the surface tension of water, allowing the cleaning agents to more effectively penetrate dirt and stains and lift them away.

2.  Breaks soils and stains down using natural solvents, including pure Melaleuca Oil, so they are easily removed.

3.  Natural cleansing agents surround the dirt so it’s completely removed instead of just spread over the surface.
