This is what you should NEVER do with your wet cleaning wipes again!

Nearly everyones does this with their cleaning wipes…

Wet cleaning wipes are, without exaggerating, the best thing since sliced bread. No more fussing about with making some soapy water in a bucket, positively soaked through cloths and too many tools. You simply pull a wipe from the package, use it to wipe clean a dirty surface and that’s all there is to it!

It’s not as simple as it seems, though…

Porous surfaces

We love those wet cleaning wipes, simply because they’re so multifunctional and super practical. We’ll easily use them to clean all of our tables, the kitchen counters and the toilet. But did you know this isn’t really what those wipes are meant for? The reason why they’re so very handy is because they often contain a disinfecting agent as well as citric acid. And exactly those two ingredients are the reason why the wipes aren’t very suitable to use on porous surfaces like granite kitchen counters.

Throw out

Apart from that, it’s also important to never again dump these wipes into the toilet. Every year cities and towns have trouble with clogged sewage systems. These blockages are in part caused by disposable wipes, which often aren’t biodegradable at all, despite what the manufacturer might claim. They get stuck in sewage systems and turn into gigantic chunks of grease over time. Disposable wipes like baby wipes, personal hygiene wipes and cleaning wipes belong in the trash can, not in the toilet. Some of the newest types of wet toilet paper can be throw into the toilet, but we recommend throwing them in the trash anyway. Better safe than sorry!
