Replenish Cleaner System

When you pick up a spray-bottle of household cleaner from the store, what you’re really buying is mostly water. If you think about how readily accessible water is at home, it’s a waste of money and materials. The Replenish System gets rid of the waste by separating the concentrated cleaning agents into replaceable “pods” and letting you add your own water to the reusable spray bottle. Makes a lot of sense.
