Casa Beta: Clorox Green Works Wipes

I've always been skeptical about the power of wipes; be it cleaning a baby's bottom or the face of Yours Truly, I've never believed they can get the job done. So, when I tested out the new Clorox Green Works Natural Cleaning Wipes, I held my expectations low. But my experience with Clorox's eco-friendly Green Works line, which is all made of plant- and mineral-based ingredients, had been wonderful, so I had hope. To hear what I thought of this product,


As it turns out, these wipes far exceeded my expectations. I've been using them for a week or so to clean up everything from spills and messes in the kitchen to dust in the living room to soap scum in the bathroom. They've proved to be a sort of paper towel with super powers. Not only do they absorb spills, but they pick up crumbs and small particles. They clean each surface as you wipe, not only cleaning up your mess but cleaning your countertops and floors as well. They are quite moist though, so you have to let your surfaces air dry after use.

Beyond that, they're made from over 99 percent natural ingredients that are biodegradable, which eases my environmental concerns about toxic cleaning solutions and piling up waste. They're also scented with essential oils, which leave a fresh, lemony fragrance in their wake.

My only issue with the wipes was the packaging. Though the container itself is recyclable, I had difficulty with its engineering. Each wipe is supposed to slip through a small hole in the cap, and the next one should pop up after you've pulled the first. Try as I might, the functionality failed on me each time, which was quite frustrating. I ended up removing the cap each time, which slowed down my cleaning routine. Of course, I'm happy to deal if it means using an eco-friendly product that cleans effectively.

I was actually really excited about these because I got three of them free with coupons but the ones I got smelled terrible. They were on clearance so the store would not take them back, and I have since smelled the ones at the store and they smell fine. Not sure why mine smelled so terrible, but it was very sad!

Yeah if the packaging on the Green Works one is the same as the regular ones... i have the same problem! I'm with Buzz, though, so maybe now I'll try them! I am truly a wipes-fiend--they just make everything easier!

Oh, I'm so glad! I go through regular Clorox wipes like a fiend and have been wanting to switch to the Green Works version but wanted to be sure they'd still be effective. Hooray!

Sounds good, I'll give them a try.. I use the regular ones all the time and I found I often had that same problem with getting them out of the container.
