First Do No Harm








Gobble de Goop
Probiotics for your drains and septic system.

Many of our supporters know that we have cash flow problems (and we thank them for their generous contributions). No one realizes more than I do how much it costs to do what we do, and with our recent lawsuit we’re even further in debt.

For those of you who don’t know, we published an investigative report about an organization that was ripping off the terminally ill and making half a million dollars a month doing so; we scooped the nation, busted up a scam, and were sued for a million dollars. We won the lawsuit, but we’re still paying the attorneys.

We have been looking for ways of supporting our work here beyond asking everyone for donations. We’ve spent over $11,000.00 on grant writing, but so far nothing.

One day I get a phone call from someone who says he wants to help us with our cash flow problems. He tells me he loves our web site, and he’s got a product we can sell.

I explained to him that we can’t sell a thing here. That the FDA and FTC allow us to write what we write only if we don’t sell anything. If we sell something, we have to be careful about what we say about it. So, by not selling anything (other than our books) we are allowed to say anything we want.

Then he tells me: “It’s a drain cleaner.”

I thought to myself: the FDA doesn’t care what we say about drain cleaners (as long as we don’t make any medical claims).

But we still have our standards. We would never sell a toxic product. That would be the height of hypocrisy.

Then he tells me: it’s a bacterium; a good bacterium that eats the sludge and leaves behind just one waste product: water.

Really? A probiotic that eats sludge and excretes water? That is too cool.

“Yes,” he tells me, “it cleans your pipes and then goes into the local water supply and cleans that up, unless you have a septic system, and then it will clean that up.”

Long story short, this guy sends me all sorts of information on this product (and enough samples to try and let others try), and we had a little contest (Name the Product) in which the winning name was: Gobble de Goop.

The really good news is this: We have been given exclusive rights to the home market.

This is big news. The man who came to us is a saint (an ex marine who fought in Vietnam). By giving us the Home Market, we can sell it here, at our web site and we can sell it to other sites who sell to the home markets, and if this is picked up by grocery stores or department stores throughout the nation, we’ll be selling it to them too. (If you own a hotel or a business or a restaurant, I’ll put you in touch with the boss for those larger jobs. Just write.)

How Gobble de Goop Works (and how to work Gobble de Goop)

We will initially sell Gobble de Goop in a ten ounce container that will clean five drains. To be 100% effective, you must do all your drains in your house or apartment at the same time.

Gobble de Goop will not harm any drain or pipe. Unlike most drain cleaners, it is not poisonous if ingested in small amounts. The material data sheet says this:

No effect if ingested in small amounts. A single dose of this product is rarely toxic by ingestion. May cause eye irritation. Avoid contact with skin and open wounds.

According to the American Poison Control Centers, over 700 children under the age of six are poisoned annually by toxic drain cleaners.

Gobble de Goop is non toxic in small amounts. Some have reported skin irritation. We will send complete instructions with each bottle.

When you are ready to clean your drains, you’ll need a bucket that holds just a little over a gallon, and a large spoon or stick to stir the bucket. (Some have stirred the bucket with their hands, but if you have a cut or sensitive skin, use a large spoon.)

Take the bottle of Gobble de Goop and gently shake it (turning it upside down) for about ten seconds. The bacteria have settled to the bottom.

Fill your bucket with a gallon of very warm water. It should not be so hot that you cannot put your arm into it. Hot water kills the bacteria.

You are waking up the bacteria. Too cold or too hot is a rude awakening.

Since you will do all your drains at the same time, pour the entire bottle of Gobble de Goop into the water and then put the bottle into the water and swish it around till it has nothing left in it. Then gently stir the gallon of water.

Let it sit for one hour. In an hour, all the bacteria will be active and hungry.

Pour slowly into five drains. If using it on a toilet, just pour into the toilet and flush.

Make sure you apply to all your drains preferable on the same day. We can guarantee the product only if all drains are treated at the same time.

But you are not done yet. Good bacteria require oxygen. So you have to run a little cold water for ten seconds in each drain each day. You’ll most likely being using many of your drains (not to mention the toilet), but that drain in the laundry room or that one in the back bathroom that no one uses, or that drain you have in the garage will have to be flushed daily with a little fresh water. Running a sink or tub for ten seconds will work just fine.

After applying the product, lines will run smoothly within 10-14 days, max. Day 14 is the key day. If lines do not run freely on day 14, it means that someone killed the bacteria. By day 30, most lines should be completely free of organic waste build-up. At that point, some bacteria will die, some will remain in the lines waiting for more food and some will move down the line looking for food. They are mobile.

If you are cleaning five pipes that lead into a septic tank, that should be enough to clean the tank, though sometimes a second treatment of using one entire bottle should be poured directly into your septic tank.

Household drains should remain trouble-free for three to five years, although improperly installed pipes or pipes which have settled will need more frequent applications. Again, this depends on if you’re killing off the natural bacteria in your system. If you are using antibiotic soaps or bleach, you pipes will start to get buildup sooner than those who don’t use these products.

Care for your Bacteria

The bacteria in Gobble de Goop do not like toxins, antibacterial soap, bleach, or really hot water.

If you can shower in the water, it’s not too hot. But sometimes in the kitchen you’ll be tempted to pour that spaghetti water down the drain. Nope, you cannot do that. Run cold water for a 10 seconds then pour the hot water slowly into the sink. But the simple rule is: Hot water kills the bacteria.

We never recommend antibacterial soaps. I believe that we need to build immunity to bacteria. However, if you’ve been using antibacterial soaps, YOU NEED GOBBLE DE GOOP. Why? Because good bacteria live in your pipes naturally.

If you’ve killed them off the good with antibacterial soap, your pipes will be clogged with a sludge you won’t believe. Ask any plumber about antibacterial soaps. Plumbers love them. They’ve never been busier, cleaning out drains everywhere.

Bacteria that cause sludge build up will get into your pipes eventually any way, but using antibacterial soaps kill all the bacteria and sludge builds even faster.

Do not use bleach (or harsh, toxic cleaning solutions) in your laundry for at least 30 days. There are alternatives out there, like the Oxy Clean products. These will actually supply the bacteria in Gobble de Goop with some extra oxygen they’ll need to do their job.

So, let’s go over the instructions.

1.     Shake the bottle gently (turn upside down) to wake up the bacteria.

2.     Fill a bucket with a gallon of lukewarm water.

3.     Empty the entire bottle into the water and rinse out the bottle in the water to make sure it's empty of any residual product. (The bottle can be reused after a thorough cleaning.)

4.     Stir thoroughly and let sit for an hour to activate the bacteria.

5.     Pour into the drain (or toilet and flush).

6.     Run fresh water for ten seconds each day for three weeks.

7.     Do not pour the following down any drain for three weeks:

a.      Really hot water (above 140 degrees Fahrenheit)

b.     Toxic chemicals

c.     Bleach

d.     Antibiotic soaps

In about two to three weeks, you’ll notice that any unpleasant odor caused by clogged drains is gone. The only problem you might experience is a “break away” clog.

Sometimes, when the drains are being cleaned by Gobble de Goop material stuck to the pipes might break away and stop up the drain. If this happens, a simple plunging should clear it. It’s just loose stuff that is temporarily clogged in the pipes.

It is recommended to do this just once every year, or once every six months as a preventive measure.

I’ve used Gobble de Goop and I’ve passed a bottle or two onto others to try. Everyone loves it because it’s good for your pipes, good for your septic system, and good for your local sewers not to mention good for the environment.
