chemicals

I work for a fella who's marketing himself as green but uses aerosol stainless steel polish and cheap furniture polish spray to get smudges and dirt on finished wood.

What are the best alternatives?

Simple Green makes a pump stainless polish and Method has a pump furniture cleaner, I think with carnuba wax if memory serves. Any idea if those are good? The furniture is for spot-polishing desks without clearing them off, so I'm concerned about anything with polish or wax building up.

I can't make any recommendations, but make sure that the products the service uses are certified by Green Seal.

Green Seal has established industry wide standards of what can be considered "green". They have a database of certified products on their website.

New Orleans? Need a cleaner? (I'm in West Alabama and my job's been cut down to nothing for the holidays. Boss's fully expecting me to find something else and quit before the end of the month.)

it's good to see more green cleaners, although it may seem a little silly to want other companies to be green reducing the value of my usp, but green is something more should be doing reducing the use as harmful toxic products. Good luck finding an alternative to everything, i'm not 100% there yet so explain if we can't do it in a green clean way (which is fairly rare) then we'll ask permission to use a toxic product, which are weak toxic products. I hope in the next few months i'll have all standard cleaning material that are only non-toxic.

Lightbulb Want to clean green, Try this!

You should try GreenTerpene d-Limonene. Its made from fresh orange peels and nothing else. Stuff works great, turns out it the active ingredient in all citrus cleaners, but without the soap and water.

Last time I checked, they had a 5% off coupon code " cleanit "

GreenTerpene.com

I found a nontoxic stainless steel polish in a pump bottle by RedMax at one of the big-box home improvement stores. Stuff works as good as petroleum-based aerosol cleaners.

I guess I'm in harm-reduction mode for wood cleaning. I'm looking for an economical non-aerosol, non-irritating, non-wax/polish everyday cleaner and, so far, it looks like Pledge Multisurface and Liquid Gold wood wash are about the best I'm going to find. Any opinions on the safety/efficacy of either? I tried the Pledge stuff, and it works pretty good and it's mainly alcohol, so it's pretty neutral. Smells godawful.
