I've applied the stealth method again, and switched DH's eye glass cleaner for a more environmentally-friendly alternative.
We both wear glasses, but have different approaches to their cleaning and care. I rinse mine with water and dry with a soft cloth. He likes to spray an anti-film cleaner and dry with a tissue. His cleaner comes in a little spritz bottle, which I've emptied and replaced with a vinegar and water substitute. I figure if vinegar/water is good enough to clean my windows and mirrors, it should be fine for his eyeglasses.
I wonder if he'll notice.
The inspiration for this blog came after reading Vanessa Farquharson's book, Sleeping Naked is Green, and wondering if her new eco-lifestyle was really applicable to a family of 5 that was already fairly environmentally friendly. At the urging of a friend, I took on the challenge of trying to improve my family's "green-ness", using the book as a template. This blog will record our attempts to improve our environmental foot-print one small change at a time.

Sounds like a great idea - but one question - does it make the glasses smell like vinegar?ReplyDelete
Eeek! I've always been told never to use a tissue or other paper product on my glasses... something about the wood fibers and scratches.ReplyDelete
They smell like vinegar a little bit, but not too bad, as I've used only a little bit.ReplyDelete
