At Ecosparkle, we believe that clean just isn’t clean unless it’s good for the planet too!
This week, our Green Clean Team is sharing our Green & Clean Product Pick of the Week – CleanWell Natural Antibacterial Sanitizing Wipes!
Out with Conventional, in with Green Clean!
Clean Well Botanical Disinfectant Wipes
The Product Lowdown:
How many times have you found yourself in the car, in the office, or simply around the house looking for a quick and easy, environmentally friendly option to create a quick, clean shine? We know we have.
Enter CleanWell, with their excellent line of Botanical Disinfectant Wipes – produced with 100% natural ingredients.
These potent, germ fighting wipes offer an effective, natural alternative to the conventional choices. For starters, they eliminate over 99.9% of household germs (thanks to their Thyme essential oil based disinfectant), along with the cold and flu viruses. And, unlike the conventional options, you don’t need to wear gloves or re-clean surfaces after using them.
They’re even safe to be used without wiping on food contact surfaces!
These wipes work wonderfully on many types of surfaces. We particularly like them for a handy, thorough cleaning of auto surfaces (such as interior door handles, gear shift handles, steering wheel surfaces and cup holders). One wipe provides a significant amount of coverage, allowing us to thoroughly clean all interior handles (including the wheel) in one go.
They’re also extremely handy when placed next to the monitor at the office, reminding you at a glance to give the phone, keyboard and mouse a quick wipe down.
While we definitely love these wipes, we do have a couple of gripes. For starters – and this is common amongst all wipe products we’ve tested – we found that the wipes toward the end of the package were significantly less moist than those at the start. This led us to wonder whether they offer the same effectiveness from start to finish. They certainly don’t offer the same coverage, which is a bit of a pain when the package is winding down.
Additionally, we were disappointed not to find an unscented variety available. According to the manufacturer, the Thyme oil (which plays such an important part in the disinfectant solution) has a scent which is impossible to remove (essential oils do produce VOC’s, for those who may not already know). Although this is understandable, it’s unfortunate that those with scent sensitivities will have to look elsewhere.
Still, these minor gripes aside, the wipes offer a compelling option that is hard to pass up for green cleaners eyeing convenience. We definitely recommend you pick up a pack at your local green retailer (we recommend Nature’s Emporium).
