Green Tip Tuesday – Cleaning with a Twist

Have you seen these cleaning products before from Twist?

I hadn’t until this weekend, but apparently they’ve been around since 2007. Sometimes I feel like I’m a hermit in a cave.

They’re plant-based cleaning products. Though I can be persuaded, at times, simply to buy a product based on the packaging – and this may or may not have been one of those times – I am now writing about them because I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them!

First, this sponge!!!

I know it’s not the best idea to use sponges in the kitchen. But, I have Pops, and he tends to microwave the sponges daily to kill the germs on them. Besides that fact, these sponges are fabulous! One side is, well, a sponge,

but the other…is this fabulous loufah!

Does it make sense that this just feels good in your hand? Maybe it’s actually loufah-ing my hand as I scrub dishes?

For those items that need “extra” scrubbing, I picked up this:

For dusting, I purchased the Twist Bamboo Cloth:

This little beauty – Euro Sponge #10:

Finally, I purchased these European Sponge Cloths:

The package says they’ll outlast 17 rolls of paper towels. Rather than test that, and go through 17 rolls of paper towels, I’ll take their word for it because these products haven’t let me down yet.

If you haven’t tried these Twist products and are out shopping for cleaning supplies, thing about giving them a try. I’m always looking for alternative, more eco-friendly products to share.

By they way, Twist and the Twist Clean company don’t know me at all and know nothing about me sharing their products with you – as in, they’re not paying me to be nice. I just happen to like these products and wanted to share.

    I’ve only seen these at Bed, Bath, Beyond. I’ll take a look at them closely the next time I’m looking for sponges.
