Wiping rags are good for cleaning a lot of things quickly, efficiently and sustainably. When using wiping rags to wipe the slate clean in this instance, just that little bit of elbow grease is all that is required. But perhaps there is a bit more. Because the slate in this case is the parlous state of the environment and your unnaturally high carbon levels. And have you seen the state that your local landfills are in these days? Quite literally, it is a sight for sore eyes. So many things have gone to waste, so unnecessarily.
What could have gone wrong? How could you all have accumulated so much waste in such a short space of time? Oh well, you would have thought. The damage is done. So, what now then? There’s a thought. There are always new beginnings. And there is nothing better than being able to make a clean, fresh start. Like kicking out the old dirty habits. And replacing them with the new. Start with the easy tasks then. Start separating the clean odds and ends that you would normally have pitched out all together into the garbage bin.
Take material rags, for instance. You’ll be making their lives so much easier. These are the folks that hunt and scour the landfill sites while you’re still sleeping. Or having your breakfast. You leave the dirty plates and cups in the sink because, after all, the hired help will be cleaning up after you. Not so fast. Do something yourself for a change. And those of you using dishwashers, do be careful how you use them.
That takes care of the old rags. And then there’s all the old clothes in the cupboard that you’ve clean forgotten about. Whew! This is just the tip of the iceberg and, boy, is the list long.
