Cleaning Has Never Felt So Good

Day 225 – Clorox wipes have always been a staple on many back to school lists. However, the popularity of this cleaning wipe exploded when the pandemic arrived. Stores could not keep them on their shelves and the company could not produce enough to meet the demand.

As we emerge from the pandemic, the need for Clorox wipes has decreased, slightly. However, the need to clean and disinfect surfaces is still a top priority for many. So, I was very exciting to find out that Clorox has a compostable wipe.

Clorox® Compostable Cleaning Wipes pick up dirt — and compost back into dirt. They come in both Simply Lemon and Free & Clear, an unscented version for those who prefer a fragrance-free clean. Best of all, they’re safe to use around kids, pets and food. They’re made with a compostable plant-based cloth, which makes them safe to compost at home, or through your local municipal facility.” – Clorox

Since, they are compostable, they will only break down in conditions ideal for composting (air and heat). These wipes will not break down if placed in your garbage. Just one more reason to start composting!

A three pack of Clorox Compostable Wipes is currently less expensive than a three pack of regular throwaway Clorox wipes. Can the decision to use compostable wipes get any easier?

I hope my daily posts on ways to save the planet are helpful, but I do think having more places to find information is important. The easier it is to understand how to live a more sustainable life, the easier it is to implement the changes needed to be successful in reaching your goals.
