I have a secret.
You can’t tell ANYONE. This is just between us, ok?
I talk a big game about being green, and sustainable, and knowing where your food comes from and not inviting toxic cleaners into your house and reuse, recycle, repurpose, blah blah blah. I compost, I joined a CSA, I cloth diapered, I even went so far as to use cloth wipes and get chickens. I am trying to be good to Mother Earth. I am trying to make a difference.
And I am addicted to Cleaning Wipes.
*hides face in hands*
I KNOW they are terrible for the environment. I KNOW that they do not break down, and take tons of water and fuel to make. I KNOW people, ok?
It really was my dirty little secret for a while. Every time I used one, I would throw it in the garbage and feel instantly bad about my contribution to the landfill. Feel terrible about the chemicals that I was putting into my house and probably getting into my food when I wiped down the kitchen counters.
Have you tried them?? They ROCK! They are 99% naturally derived, using plant and mineral based ingredients that are… get this… biodegradable. I know, right? Something that my hippie crunchy butt can throw in the compost pile and not worry about. They will break down and won’t contaminate my compost with any nasty chemicals. They also carry the DfE logo, which means that the Environmental Protection Agency has reviewed their ingredients and determined that they do not pose a risk to either YOU, or the environment. Have questions on that? Check out the DfE page here.
And while I’m all for being kind to mother earth and composting my wipes, the best part is, they actually work. I’ve used them to clean my bathrooms and the kitchen and love the job that they do. That funky stain on the counter top? Gone with only a quick swipe. That thing in bathroom? Gone. (Thank god because I had no desire to get up close and personal with that stain.)
Not only do they clean well, they smell good… Fresh, lemony and totally non-toxic! I don’t have to worry about melting my toddlers brain (because we know that mine is already kaput) with the harsh chemical smell that other cleaners kick off. That DfE designation means that this product is as safe as possible for when your child decides to lick the floor or sniff the toilets. What… yours doesn’t do that?
All of these great qualities add up to a wipe that I don’t have to hide, or feel guilty about. And if you don’t like them? Or think they don’t work? Green Works will give you a full refund, because they are THAT sure about their product. And their product line doesn’t stop with the wipes! There is toilet bowl cleaner (which is amazing and don’t even get me started on that one), all purpose cleaner, laundry detergent… the list goes on and on. I have used them all and love them!
