Step 1: Dampen Green Glove with a quick rinse under water
Before using Green Glove it’s best to give it a quick rinse. Then wring out any excess water so the glove is slightly damp before using.
Step 2: Use any EPA-registered *or* Green cleaning product
Most store-bought cleaners are EPA-registered (e.g. Lysol, Pine-Sol). Green cleaners include products such as Seventh Generation, Mrs. Meyers, Dr. Bronner’s, Common Good, etc. Either of these types of cleaners will work with Green Glove. Be sure to follow the instructions on the cleaner label.
For best results: Spray or apply cleaner or disinfectant on the area to be cleaned, and also spray or apply the cleaner on your Green Glove.
Important: Be sure not to overuse your cleaner or disinfectant since Green Glove requires 75% LESS cleaning product than paper towels to be effective.
Step 3: Wipe back and forth with medium speed & light pressure
Good news: you do not need to "scrub hard" with Green Glove.
Since there are thousands of pores within the open-cell network waiting to collect dirt and germs, simply glide Green Glove back and forth across the surface with light to regular pressure and it will do its job.
Step 4: Wash Green Glove after each use
Green Glove can be washed in any of the following ways:
By hand with soap and water, then air dry
- In a dishwasher alongside your other dishes
- In a washing machine with like colors on a regular or gentle cycle
If you are disinfecting or sanitizing be sure to wash Green Glove immediately after using it with one of the 3 methods listed above.
If you are not disinfecting (e.g cleaning dishes) simply rinse out Green Glove after using it, then let it air dry. Wash it after every few uses with one of the 3 methods listed above.
After cleaning spills it is recommended to wash Green Glove in a dishwasher or washing machine. Dry on low to medium heat, or air dry.
A note about dishwashers: The wash and dry cycles of most dishwashers runs between 130-170 F. Green Glove can handle heat up to 180 F. If for any reason your dishwasher heats higher than 180 F it will melt your Green Glove. If you have any concerns about extreme heat we recommend using a washing machine with warm or cold water, or washing by hand.
Important: After a couple weeks of regular use Green Glove will show dirt and debris remaining within the cell network. The discoloration you see is 100% safe since the debris has been trapped and neutralized.
Step 5: Store your Green Glove
Allow Green Glove to dry after each use.
The best place to store Green Glove is on top of an existing cleanser bottle near or under your sink - or on your newly vacated paper towel holder. :)
Note: It is fine to use Green Glove again even if it has not fully dried.
