5 Myths About Green Cleaning Busted!

green cleaningCleaning is a tough job, and the common thought is that a tough cleaning job calls for a tough cleaner. This isn’t the case anymore; in fact, cleaning with green products is a great way to go about cleaning. Not only do green products get the job done, but they also protect you and your family from harmful chemicals. In spite of this, many people still have reservations about green cleaners and actually believe false information that has been handed down for years.

We at U. S. Wiping are here to dispel any false information about green cleaning. Check out these 5 big myths that we have busted about green cleaning!

Myth #1: Green cleaning products don’t actually work.

Fact: This is more than likely the most common myth of all when it comes to green cleaning. It’s true that when most green products were introduced 20 or 30 years ago, they didn’t do too great of a job; however, in the past 10 years, all of that has changed dramatically. Now green alternatives work just as well as (if not better than) your everyday conventional cleaners.

Myth #2: Green cleaning products cost more than conventional ones.

Fact: Yes and no. This is true for some green products, but it’s definitely not true for all of them. In fact, several green cleaning products have become very cost-competitive with conventional ones. Additionally, while some green products do cost more, they are so concentrated, so they last longer and get more uses, which eliminates the cost differential.

Myth #3: Green cleaning is just a fad.

Fact: Not anymore. Several experts in the professional cleaning industry thought this about 10 years ago, but in reality, green cleaning has truly taken off and shows no signs of stopping as consumers become more aware of their health and the impacts of the environment.

Myth #4: You can’t really tell if a product is really “green” or not.

Fact: While this is true for many years, it’s much less prevalent today. Recently, the Federal Trade Commission has recommended very specific guidelines designed to clear up the confusion. When you’re looking for a green product to use in your home or business, look for certification labels on the product from organizations such as Green Seal or EcoLogo.

Myth #5: There aren’t many chemical manufacturers that make green cleaning products.

Fact: In reality, virtually every major manufacturer in the cleaning industry has embraced green cleaning!
