Cherish your old friends, you will always need them.

Boom, Niel 05/20/2020


No, I’m not talking about your classmates. It doesn’t matter if it’s still tensed between you. I’m talking about the old friends who have been a part of the human biome for centuries. Old friends who rub your skin and populate your colon. You better make sure that there isn’t a big issue between you and those old friends.

Whether you and your childhood friends still hang out around a campfire regularly is of course your right. For me, it’s a question of whether everything is going well between you and your eternal friends. We wouldn’t exist without our old friends, it’s that simple. The bacteria you took from your mother’s womb and breast, the bacteria you sucked from your father’s thumb when you didn’t want to fall asleep just yet.

These bacteria ensure that your food can be digested, that your skin is not infected or irritated with every gesture. I’m not going to give a full list of what our old friends do for us, we would still be there tomorrow. The important thing is to understand that they are really important to us. Of vital importance. So stop chasing them and take them against you because you will still need them when you are old.

In Search of the Microbiome

You already realize that they are important to us in and on our bodies, but now I’m going to tell you something new: they are also important in your immediate environment. How long have you had a headache in the office on that long, dark winter day from the foul smell of the slowly warming carpet? Well, by then you probably would have liked to have some of your old friends. They control the foul vapors of carpet, varnish, paint, plastic… by simply devouring them. Yes strange, but they like it.

Not only do they love, but they experience it and draw their energy from it to multiply. Together, they form a colony, an ecosystem, which attaches itself to all surfaces. Nothing to worry about, the chance that there is something else on this surface before that is very high. The question is not whether there was something, but the question is what was there? An adhesive biofilm that held the dust particles together, something even more harmful? Believe me, you are better off with an ecosystem of our good friends because we know they are safe and don’t get in your way.

“It might sound strange, but less particles in the air also means more and better clarity of light inside your spaces. More light has a positive effect on the well-being of everyone in the house. “

Old Friends Theory

It might sound strange, but less particles in the air also means better clarity of the light inside you. More light has a positive effect on the well-being of everyone in the house. According to Professor Rook, the good bacteria in our indoor environment also ensure a better balance for our immune system. If you want to know more about this thesis from Professor Rook, you can watch a TED talk with Professor Rook on our website. A better balance of our microbiome, both in our internal environment, on and in our body, ensures better mental health. You don’t have to believe us, but there is a plethora of scientific studies on the link between our microbiome and our well-being.


Your mental health will certainly improve if you know that you are cleaning in an eco-friendly way when you clean with BioOrg products. In fact, we’re not just green, we’re even making our planet greener and bringing life into the house, literally.
