Clean Up Your Act Literally, With TWIST!

With all the talk of going green, we have made a few adjustments in our lives to reduce our footprint. Recently, we discovered Twist. Did you know that "Making a sponge is a very challenging process, and one that only a handful of producers undertake. Cellulose sheets (100% tree fiber) are mixed with cotton and heated into a liquid that is poured into large molds. Adjusting the salt particles added to the mix creates those familiar holes. The mix is then dried as a giant block, sliced into various shapes, rinsed sparkling clean, combined with an antibacterial agent, and finally packaged. This process can lead to a lot of waste. Billions of sponges are produced every year. An industry that big has an impact on the world around it." The Twist line-up includes the fabulous Bamboo Cloth #35. Bamboo is a great renewable resource that has been transformed into a natural way to wipe, dust and polish surfaces without scratching. The Fabulous Naked Sponge #55 contains no harmful dyes and it is made of 100% cellulose, making it perfect for spills and regular kitchen cleanup. The Thirsty Euro sponge #10 is both durable and biodegradable. It's an attractive sponge that works better than the sponges I'm used to. The European Sponge Cloth #20, my personal favorite, is a hybrid between a sponge and a paper towel. They are super absorbent and durable, and they easily wipe kitchen and bath surfaces like a paper towel (without the lint) with the power of a heavy duty sponge! The Loofah Sponge #40 replaces all of those ordinary scrubbing sponges that grace kitchens everywhere. It's much more stylish too! Twist has simplified the process of greening up your cleaning. From kitchens to bathrooms and everywhere in between, you can be a part of something greater. Help minimize your effect on the environment and visit for a list of online retailers.
