Something Green For You Today: Cleaning Cloths Made From Corn Cobs & Peach Pits
Since it's St. Patrick's Day, I thought I'd share something really cool and 'green' with you today.
When it comes to green cleaning products, it seems there are new ones hitting the market daily. But these fabulous Japanese scrubbing cloths by PLUS ONE, made of all-natural abrasives (peach pits and corn cobs) have been awarded the 2009 Wallpaper design award for best cleaning product and NY York Magazine names them a best bet.

They last for months, have need no detergent, and fit in tight little hard to clean spots.
Green Depot sells them two to a pack; the yellow for metalware like pots and pans, kettles, sinks and grills (they even work to peel the skin off of veggies!) and the pink one for more delicate surfaces like glass, wood, and teflon coated or non stick pans.
buy them here.
