I don’t like using heavy-duty chemicals when I clean at the schoolhouse.
With two wells on the property and a conscience to boot I’ve been thinking about taking a good hard look at the ingredients of the stuff under the sink to see if what I’m using will make the green grade.
I did find this on the David Suzuki Foundation website:
All of those sounds pretty good. I also like being able to print out the labels. And let’s face it, when this place was built that’s probably what they cleaned it with anyway. Nothing wrong with a little Borax and elbow grease.
Some people prefer to purchase their cleaning supplies and that can be ok too. I do that as well but I often wonder if the labels are telling the whole story. I often check this website:
This site provides a score for many products based on their impact on health, the environment as well as societal impact. That can include community relations, treatment of employees, their cop-operation with international labour and environmental law etc. A very useful tool.
So I hope this helps you. I need help too. I like using a mop type product that “jets” a “wet” liquid on the floor to then be cleaned with a disposable pad. I like the concept but not the chemical or the disposable mat. I’ve tried steam cleaners but don’t like final result and my beloved Murphy’s Oil Soap seems to be leaving a residue. Any suggestions?
