I owned and operated a cleaning company for 20 years working by myself. During that time I had a few customers who wanted me to use their green cleaning products. I did not like using them because it took me much longer to clean. I believed the products that I used were superior in their performance. My products allowed me to accomplish more tasks in a given time.
The past several years I have been able to visit my sister on several occasions. She told me that she switched to all natural cleaning products and makes them herself. Her concern for the inviroment and her health were her deciding factors.
I decided to try these green products and see if they cleaned as well as she claimed. This instructable is about a few test that I did myself using some of her cleaning suggestions. I also thought it would be beneficial to use Mrs. Meyer's products because some of the prizes are Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day products for the Spring Cleaning Contest. Are these products going to pass the Mr. Clean challenge? Let's see.
Step 1: Supplies Used For This Challenge
Here are the supplies needed to try this test.
Several bar towels.
A sponge textured with a non-abrasive material
Tooth brush or small cleaning brush
Mrs. Meyer's dish soap
Dirty tennis shoe
Double-edged razor blade.
Empty soap (foam pump) bottle
Please note: I put enough dish soap in the pump bottle to cover the bottom about 1/4 inch high. Then I filled it with water up to the white part of the top of the bottle. You can't put too much soap or water in these pump bottles or they won't work properly.
