We need paw wipes for dogs...safe for them and the earth, please. It's a dirty world!
Recently this mom posted a great blog about Green Works!
I was recently sent a sample of the new Green Works from Clorox through Mom Central. And to be completely honest, I had forgotten I had signed up to receive the samples and saw them on sale at Walmart and had already purchased some.
We have already changed out our lightbulbs to be "greener" and Ray seems especially obsessed with being green.
Enter in the cleaners. I will also admit this - I don't clean often. I hate it. Despise it. But every.single.day our kitchen becomes a disaster. We have a huge granite island that somehow through dinner and kids becomes messy and our black wood (or laminate? I don't know what it is, but it is black) kitchen table becomes even more messier.
Normally I use just a wet paper towel and a lot of elbow grease. Okay, I mean Ray uses a wet paper towel and a lot of elbow grease (did I mention he does the grocery shopping too?). But when I do clean, it's a pain.
But not with this stuff. Not only did it work great, I think it smells non-chemically (I am making up words here). It smells really like lemons and the Glass and Surface cleaner is safe to use on sealed granite. We were always afraid to use other chemical products on our granite for fear of eating away at the sealant. The Natural All Purpose Cleaner is safe for granite as well (and stainless steel and chrome).
Finally a company that listened to its customers and developed a product that not only works, but works well.
And as you know we love to hear from you!

I use it a carpet spot cleaner.
What's a person to do when their Lab comes home from a dip in the pond and a roll in the dirt then dries himself on his dog bed? Or maybe Fluffy goes out in her pretty new doggy coat and rolls on something that has her owner running for the nearst barf bag. Pet owners don't have many options when it comes to washing their pets' beds, toys or coats; most laundry detergents made for humans aren't safe for pet items and those that are don't come close to getting out stains and odors.
My idea would be to formulate a Green Works HE Laundry detergent that is not only safe to use on pet items but also can be used to wash human clothes and bedding. Green Works Pet would need to be free of Kathon and other substances that can cause itching, hives or other allergic reactions, have no added perfumes or dyes, and rinse out completely, even in front loading, low water washers.
The source for all ingredients should be non-toxic, safe and unscented. Even natural scents can be an irritant to many people.

There are those of us who have ovens that are neither self-cleaning nor continuos cleaning. What we need is an oven cleaner that is non-toxic (no need to wear gloves when using) and leaves behind a coating that makes for easy wipe off cleaning afterwards (sort of like a Telflon finish left behind).
This might sound like a "cash in the trash concept", however, I know companies have come up with scented trash bags to cut down on odors, and poeple put their trash cans in other rooms to cut down on odors, but what about an adhesive "odor eater" pad that sticks to the top of the trash can lid and draws the odors from in the trash to reduce the smell. I know this technology exists (bread sucking the moisture out of the air, they have packets you hang in your closet that pull moisture out of the air). Generally people don't by lids, but for those who do you're just "containing" the odor and get a fresh whiff everytime you do open the lid. It would create a pretty bad funk putting an air freshener in these places, I like something that "eats" the odor.
Perhaps making them of Clorox would better eat the odors better if neutralized with chemicals without smelling super sterile.
They would last a week.
I also think you could use them in the bathroom on the back of the toilet bowl as well to draw in and eliminate odors, put them under your sink.
I chose to put this in the Green Works category because putting up a Clorox-scented sticky odor eater pad would seem out of its element if not used in the kitchen or bathroom.
As of now I don't know the dimensions-you want it to be small enough to "hide", but big enough to last long.
