This may have been covered somewhere else but I couldn't find it. A friend of mine and I have been wracking our brains trying to find a solution to this one: she works in a job that requires her to use a disposable toliet cleaning system. We all know the evils of disposable products but in some cases such as in the form of communicable diseases, it is necessary (such as my friend's job in a medical field). Her supervisor is open to suggestions for switching to a lesser evil (more eco-friendly, less plastic, less chemical options) but we can't find anything to suggest for a trial. Even if it was something without cleaner built in but the actual cleaning part must be disposable and can not be reused. Any suggestions? Oh and if anyone has any leads on a natural disposable material that can be used as toliet wipes (like baby wipes except for adults). Please share that as well since that is another area that she is trying to improve in her workplace.
