The global consumption of cleaning products has a colossal impact on our ecosystem. Petroleum-based plastic bottles and harmful cleaning chemicals are to blame, while there are many easy solutions available to reduce your household ecological footprint, but you can make a difference with our eco-friendly hand soap! If you consider using our reusable cleaning wipes, here are some questions you may ask yourself:
How to start using Mortier Pilon's Reusable Cleaning Wipes?
Just add water, vinegar and provided essential oil into the reusable glass bottle and there you have eco-friendly house cleaners!
To start using your reusable wipes:
- Mix 3 tbsp white vinegar, 1⁄3 cup water and 2 drops essential oil into glass bottle.
- Let wipes soak and use to clean any hard surface.
Do not use water that is too hot or boiling.
Why use white vinegar as an all-purpose cleaner?
Cleaning Properties: Vinegar’s acidity is what makes it such a good cleaner. Due to a pH of 2.0 and the acetic acid content, vinegar is an inhospitable environment for many microorganisms, so it is the perfect cleaner for your home! It can dissolve away soap scum, brines left by hard water, and glue left behind by stickers. Vinegar is great for giving windows and mirrors, no-wax floors, and wood paneling or cabinets an extra-clean shine.
Eco-Friendly & Safe for kids and pets: Because vinegar is edible and all-natural, it is easily biodegradable and environmentally friendly.
There really isn't a better household cleaner than vinegar!
Can I use vinegar to wash all surfaces?
Vinegar can be virtually used anywhere in the home from cleaning wood floors to windows to wastebaskets, but it is not recommended for use on natural stones such as marble or granite since the acid content can scratch the surface. We recommend doing some research and using judgment before using on luxurious items.
What's the best way to wash the reusable wipes?
The wipes are made of microfiber. We recommend washing them in the washing machine in cold water, on normal or gentle cycle, with soft detergent. Feel free to use a stain remover as needed. To dry, throw it in the dryer on low or hang to dry. Microfiber textile dries very fast and doesn't need heat.
We definitely recommend washing the cloths in the same laundry loads as similar products, for example rags and towels.
Can the wipes stay in the liquid, and at what frequency do I need to change the liquid in my reusable wipes bottle?
The cloths can stay in the liquid, just like throwable wipes. We recommend using all the wipes, washing them as you go, before refilling the bottle with new liquid and putting your clean wipes back into the bottle. There should be enough liquid for all 12 wipes.
