"Green cleaning" is an alternative to traditional methods of cleaning that is becoming increasingly popular due to its environmental benefits and its non-toxic nature. However, some are skeptical that it is as effective as the traditional methods. This blog will explore the reasons why green cleaning may not be as effective as traditional cleaning methods, examining the pros and cons of green cleaning and the traditional cleaning methods.
Green cleaning methods are becoming increasingly popular as a way of reducing the environmental impact of cleaning processes. However, according to a study conducted by NN Zainol, NA Ramli, IS Mohammad, et al. (2023), there are certain limitations to using green cleaning methods compared to traditional cleaning methods. The study found that green cleaning methods are often more expensive than traditional cleaning methods due to the higher cost of the materials and equipment used. Additionally, green cleaning methods can require more time and labor than traditional cleaning methods, as they involve more complex processes. Furthermore, green cleaning methods may not be as effective as traditional cleaning methods in certain cases. For instance, the study found that green cleaning methods may be less effective at removing heavy dust and dirt, or in areas where there are high levels of bacteria or virus. While green cleaning methods have the potential to reduce the effects on the environment, there are certain limitations to their use compared to traditional cleaning methods.
Green cleaning is a popular alternative to traditional cleaning methods which are often deemed to be more toxic or harmful to the environment. Despite its popularity, green cleaning does not always measure up to traditional cleaning methods. For example, a study conducted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) found that traditional cleaning methods such as steam cleaning and chemical disinfectants were more effective in removing bacteria than green cleaning methods such as microfiber cleaning cloths and natural cleaners (Bennett, 2019). The NIST study also found that green cleaning methods did not provide any environmental protection benefits, such as reducing volatile organic compounds (VOCs). As a result, traditional cleaning methods are still the preferred choice for those seeking an effective and eco-friendly cleaning solution. However, more research is needed to better understand the efficacy of green cleaning methods. Until then, it is important to weigh the pros and cons of each method.
Traditional cleaning methods have many advantages over green cleaning. For one, traditional cleaning techniques are often more effective in removing dirt and bacteria, as they use chemical-based substances that have been specifically designed to remove dirt and bacteria from surfaces. In contrast, green cleaning relies more on natural substances like vinegar and baking soda, which are not as effective (Lanier et al., 2017). Furthermore, traditional cleaning is often more cost effective over the long run due to its efficiency. Chemical-based cleaners are also easier to use than natural cleaners, which often require more scrubbing and scrubbing tools to achieve the desired cleaning results (Haase, 2019). Finally, traditional cleaning is more convenient and faster than green cleaning, as traditional cleaners are more readily available and can be used with less effort.
All in all, while green cleaning may have its health and environmental benefits, traditional cleaning methods are still superior in terms of their overall effectiveness, cost-effectiveness, convenience, and speed. Consumers need to be aware of this, and weigh the pros and cons of both types of cleaning, looking at factors such as health, safety, cost and effectiveness, before they decide which type of cleaning to favor.
