Put to the Test: Green Cleaning Products
Eco-friendly products are readily available in stores nationwide, but are they worth all the hype? We tested 25 popular green cleaning products--from detergents to toothpaste--to find out which ones worked well and which ones we’d rather leave on the shelf.
Why it’s green: This detergent is nontoxic and contains no chlorine, bleach, phosphates, or dyes.
What we thought: “The lavender aroma was mild, and I didn't notice any difference in the cleanliness of my dishes compared to when I used
a conventional cleaner. It claims that it's nontoxic and biodegradable; it's ‘green’ because it's not a petroleum-based soap,
and therefore it helps to cut our dependence on oil.”
