T is for Twist

Twist my arm and I'll gladly tell you a new green secret!  I've discovered a few new green products by Twist LLC out of Boulder, Colorado at WholeFoods.  The 100% biodegradable* products are now part of my green cleaning routine.  I've been using them for a few months now, and one of my favorites is the Naked Sponge

First of all, the name is catchy in and of itself :)  And I admit, I chuckled when I read the product description for the Twist, Naked Sponge.  It reads, "Naked Sponge - Normally things with nudity might not be appropriate for all audiences.  In the case of the Naked Sponge, that couldn't be further from the truth.  Because by naked, we mean without colors and any of the adulterating stuff you might find in traditional sponges.  So please feel free to show these to your family and friends without risk of offending anyone."   So based on the description alone, and the promise of green cleaning, I decided to give it a try.

I like the fact that the Naked Sponge 100% biodegradable, and it can be sterilized by boiling it, popping the damp sponge into the microwave for 1 minute, or running through the dishwasher on the top-rack.   Compared to other sponges it has held up very well, hasn't gotten smelly, and since they come in a two pack, it's easy to keep rotating one into the dishwasher while still having one available for use. 

So, whether you like nakedness, cleanliness, green-ness, or all 3, give this "green" sponge a try (as you can see from the picture, it's actually white and matches all decors :)

* biodegradable -  A biodegradable product can dissolve easily in the environment without destroying nature.
