The siren song of convenience is strong, even for a greenie like me, and at times I’ve been compelled to some of those one-use cleaning wipes. I never feel right about it though, so I switched back to a bright purple sponge to use with organic all-purpose cleaner. Before I got too smug, I found out I could do even better with the Colorado-based Twist and their line of sponges and cleaning cloths which take “reduce, reuse and recycle” to heart.
The substantial Naked Sponge is made of cellulose from renewable tree farms and can soak up a ton of spilled juice. Trust me (and my kids) on that one. The Loofah Sponge pairs a Naked Sponge with a natural loofah for tougher cleaning jobs such as burnt pizza or dried-on oatmeal. Their reusable European Sponge Cloths are a smart alternative to paper towels, and their soft Bamboo cloths dry, shine and polish seemingly forever. Which is a good thing because, at the rate these kids are going through this house, I will be cleaning forever. -Christina
