By now most of you already know that I love to use cardboard for pretty much everything I can think of =] so using it to organize my sewing room is not a surprice, but I still wanted to share because I know this can help someone else with problems similar to mine.
Today, my journey to find cheaper , natural , and BETTER alternatives to the cleaning supplies I use in my home presented me with a showdown with what has been, up until now, one of my best cleaning allies… Clorox Wipes . There are a lot of reasons why I liked these little gems. The main reason being that I like being able to grab a cleaning wipe whenever I need one . I don’t want to have to fill a sink or a bucket with water and add cleaning solution to it, and I’m not crazy about spray cleaners.
Ross Technology Corp, a company that focuses on steel products has created a new product based on the spray known as NeverWet – which aside from being useful, is also pretty cool. Now, this doesn’t seem particularly interesting, but it is – at least if you ask me; it is built from nanoparticles and it is hydrophobic – not only that it stops water from wetting it, but it shoots water right of from the surface on which it was applied. Even if at first they wanted to apply this technology to steel, they quickly realized the enormous list of applications this can have, from shoes and clothes that wouldn’t require washing any more, to your phone that could become waterproof, or just on stuff that you don’t want bacteria to get on. This spray will be released as a commercial product next year. Check out this video to see exactly how it works. Via Geek.com
There was a time (many years ago now) when I defined effective cleaning by how the air smelled. It's not really clean unless I can smell the chemicals! Thankfully, that is no longer the standard by which I measure the cleaning prowess of the solutions I'm using. In fact, I now do everything in my power to avoid those toxic chemicals I believe are harmful to my health and the health of the environment. Why? Because you can make your own cleaners with items from your pantry that work just as well and smell better!
