Video shows results of ATP testing on Jan 8, 2018. Testing was performed with the Hygiena SystemSURE Plus using UltraSnap swabs.

Per Hygiena, “ATP is an energy molecule found in all plant, animal, and microbial cells.” “All organic matter (living or once-living) contain ATP.” “The detection of ATP on a surface or in water therefore indicates the presence of biological matter.”

This is not your house hahahahahahaha

Krystal G. says:

You sprayed and wiped with Thieves products twice before swabbing, whereas, the other products were only sprayed and wiped once. Findings are invalid as testing was not consistent. I’m not saying Thieves is not a good product, I’m just thinking if you’re going to do an experiment, everything needs to be consistent with ALL products.
