Welcome back, I am Loren LaVoy, founder of the Green Cleaning Company, and today we are talking about green cleaning your bathroom, and our very next step is green cleaning the shower. When we first started, I sprayed down the entire shower, and reminded you that we need to be working from top to bottom. This dirt falls, dust falls, and there is no reason to work against gravity. So, what we are going to do, is we are going to start at the top, spray just a little extra, make sure to get the soap dish, and Ill set this off to the side. I am spraying down the entire wall, because even though I am not working on that surface at the moment, it will be working for me. Next, using my white scrubby pad to do most of the work for me. I am going to work from top to bottom, and left to right, so I don't repeat anything. Making sure you get the little corners of the soap dish, and that looks like I am going to need my tight corner brush here, to really get the edges. Next, I am going to use my wiper cloth. Now, green secret about the wiper cloth, a lot of companies will come out of your home after cleaning it, or you yourself, and will have two garbage bags filled with paper towels. We use washable, wiper cloths. These are actually diapers that didn't make the grade for diapers, so, they have a couple of benefits to them. One benefit is that they are essentially recycled, because they are not going directly into the waste stream. Another benefit is, they are washable and reusable, so we are not throwing them away, saving trees and all, and they have a lot more surfaces, and are a lot more durable. For instance, I have a surface here, surface here, I can fold it over, I have a surface there, and there, of course I can fold it over again and create a whole new set of clean surfaces. So if I have one surface that's already wet, I can fold it and get a brand new surface for polishing and wiping. So, that's your little -- not dirty little clean secret. Let's make this crown, really shine for this home owner. In fact, I think I'll even cheat a little bit and use a microfiber. Thank you for joining us in the shower. How many people can you see I have been in the shower with? I am Loren LaVoy, and next, we are going to talk about the floor. So far we've been wiping everything to the floor, top to bottom, now we've got to deal with the dirtiest part.
