Okay, I love the Earth. Now What?
By Emilia Jae
So I had a friend tell me that his wife had discovered this product, this business, that was amazing! It allows the user to just use water and a cloth. This will clean everything AND pick up all bacteria AND will make all the bacteria go away AND replace all the products I've purchased for making my home a cleaner place. Normally I would smile, say "that's great!" and wish them luck with their good fortune. Secretly thinking: "what a sucker!" However, the source mattered in this case. He is a high school physics teacher who also happens to be a skeptic in general. And his wife is a biology teacher who does not suffer fools. Okay…tell me about this product.
Long story short – I had the product party, purchased some of the cloths and rejoiced when my friends, daughter and neighbors expressed the same excitement the biology teacher/product presenter showed. Better yet – there have been non biased tests demonstrating that this stuff works!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RbpfU5C_DvM
Now the products sit in a box in my living room. Why?
Because I am a creature of habit.
I like when the soap suds up. I like the smell of the ammonia or bleach or dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride. I like to KNOW stuff is clean. How can I let go of my poisons? Seriously.
Well, my daughter visited after the delivery. She excited went through the box and showed me all the ways to use the various products. "Look Mom! You can throw away the Clorox crap now! You don't have to clean your face with those throw away wipes!"
Yep – the generation gap reared its ugly head.
Well, the girl has at least gotten me started. I am attempting to squelch the need for suds and noxious odors. I am using the cloths in the bathroom and kitchen. The need for those sense-stimulating byproducts are a result of marketing. We have been TOLD that those are necessary or we are killing our children. At least that's how I felt. Feel?
Like all habits, this one will take time. Today I will use environmentally safe cloths. Tomorrow? Who knows.
I love you Mamma Earth. Sorry this child is taking so long in showing you
