MBDC's Pick for All-Purpose, Non-Toxic Cleaning


Last Week, we told you that sustainable product and process design consulting firm McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC) had awarded Begley's Best All Purpose Cleaner with Cradle to Cradle Certification, one of the most prestigious sustainable honors out there. So what’s so special about this stuff? Well for starters, it is non-toxic, non-caustic, non-fuming, non-flammable, non-explosive, non-irritating, non-allergenic, and 99 percent biodegradable in seven days. Then, you have the ingredients that sound more like a gourmet party dip: Extracts of pine, palm, de-acidified citrus, maize, fermented sugar cane, and olive seeds.All of these are homogeneous cleaning substances, which break down and isolate various forms of solid and liquid soil matter, such as oil, grease, dirt. Begley's Best can be used with hard, soft, cold, hot, fresh, or salt water, the manufacturer says, and is safe on plastics, paints, metals, rubber, fabrics, vinyls, or any surface which is compatible with water. So you can buy one do-everything non-toxic cleaner that replaces every toxic cleaner in your house. Sounds good to us. ::Begley’s Best via ::MBDC
