Any green cleaning product??

Can you name a green cleaning product to clean wax windows, kitchen, etc without any impressions of dirt or stickiness left?

New to a Product

Hi Tanu,
We recently switched to a new product ourselves and so far so good. We couldn't get full disclosure from the company we last used so now we are using Buckeye's Maurauder and True Seven. They get their main power from hydrogen peroxide. You can purchase a gallon and dilute it down for several different cleaners. You can check them out on the web. It will show you everything it can be used for. It is Green Seal certified and biodegradable, not to mention it was reasonably priced too! Hope this helps

Its good that you are satisfied with the performance of the product and the company because I personally feel that not all products are as green as they claim to be. One or the other agent used in them are harmful for us or our young ones. I am in the process of hiring a Janitorial Service provider in my area as I have heard a lot about their services. Hope I do not get bad this time.

Thank you all for your replies, I just called in a commercial janitorial service company in Southern California, and I must say that this company Momentum Janitorial does a good job without using any harsh chemicals. I inquired about each of the products they were using- all were green cleaning products.

I'm definitely going to look into the Buckeye brand. We are using another brand that we are very happy with but I'm always looking for the very best products.

Are you looking for products you will use yourself or for someone cleaning for you? If you are opened to getting details about a green manufacturing company, I would love to share our company information with you.

Just remember just because a cleaner doesn't smell doesn't mean it's safe. They add the perfume odor to the product to attract the customer. I love the smell of pine sol but not every does. Some people think because they can smell it that it is dangerous which is just silly. It is just a fragerance like a candle or room spray contains. A lot of the same people who don't want to smell any cleaners will come home and burn a candle all day and feel perfectly safe. I have 20 different people I clean for and 18 tell me they love the way their houses smell when they get home and two don't want to smell anything at all.

Green cleaning products are fast becoming well-known among the homeowners. In my view, using the commercial green cleaning products is a good idea to clean your home appliances in a safe and non-toxic way.

If you truly want "green" cleaning products, you need to make them yourself. There are hundreds of sites that give recipes for all purpose cleaners, glass cleaners, non-abrasive scrubs and abrasive scrubs. And, it is cheaper than purchasing any of the premade products.

not always true. purchasing white vinegar for cleaning can be hard so you have to buy in bulk which ends up costing more and then means storage

If you make a concentrate of any natural cleaner, you will save money. I make a concentrate for all purpose and glass cleaner. It costs me $0.09 cents for a 32 ounce bottle of all purpose and $0.04 cents for a 32 ounce bottle of glass cleaner. Eight ounces of concentrate for both will last me 30 days. Mix with distilled water to get to the 32 oz.

My non abrasive scrub costs me $0.02 for 8 ounces, abrasive scrub is $0.05 for 8 ounces. Eight ounces of these scrubs last me 14 to 16 days.

The recipes for the cleaners are tried and true. I have been using them of over a year and, as you can see, the cost is almost nothing.

I do not use anything purchased off the shelf or ready mixed.

it really depends on what you need done and how bad the dirt is imo. I find limescale and bad grease in particular needs something that ends up costing a bit more, but with regular cleaning of my own place i tend to fill a bucket with 2 drops of an eco washing liquid and clean everything including the windows so the cost like for you is minimal and it's a name brand.

Look at www.ewg.com (or more specific http://www.ewg.org/guides/cleaners)

They will show you what products are green or not. You can search for brand name products or even the ingredients in cleaners.

This is NOT my site and is a great resource.

Any green cleaning products

You can find a number of products in the market which are typically green or environment friendly but still are made from some kind of chemicals. I feel using home made remedies can be better environmental friendly products.Cleaning wax windows with a spray of baking powder and vinegar and then rubbing it off with a piece of newspaper.It leaves the glass pane of the window shining as new.The same mixture can also be used on the kitchen tiles to remove the grime.
