Some pesticides are an instant kill, and some are meant to be placed around the home as a preventative measure.

Frankly, the consumer report I saw on morning TV really motivated me to write the blog. And I had the same reaction to the thought of the soap scum. In fact, I noticed the build-up in my dishwater and promptly proceeded to clean it. Wonder how long it had been there and I hadn’t noticed it!

Label literacy is a big factor, but, unfortunately, I think that too many people have the bad habit of simply not reading the label or ignoring the basic guidelines.

Before reading this blog I was one of those people who always thought more was better. For example last night I wanted to wash my bed sheets, wanting them to be as clean as possible I loaded up on the laundry detergent almost putting in double the recommended amount. Now looking at the directions it specifically says do not use more than recommended. The thought of soap scum building up in my washing machine will keep me from making this mistake in the future. This blog got me thinking that we live in a very lucky country. Laws that require companies to put instruction labels on chemicals is something our country takes for granted. Unlike other parts of the World, our government has put in place laws that are fully for our citizen’s safety. These laws make companies that produce cleaning products to create labels that proclaim how to safely use the product. It is pure laziness that prevents US citizens from not using these products correctly.

Too much use of these products is costly, unproductive, and dangerous. But at the same time, it should be remembered that when people end their schooling they usually are only able to read 3 or 4 grades below where they finished at. So label literacy and printing it so most people can understand it are also important. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

That is certainly a best practice. But whatever anyone does or does not do, the instinct to grow will confound all environmental progress, unless and until people learn to think before they act, which in economic terms is virtually never, especially when our President pledges to “get this economy back on tracck and growing again”.

Zero food scraps? Sounds like a nice goal, but might be someone irrealistic. Composting is a good solution (I’ll be blogging about that in the near future) but since you can’t recycle meats and some other food products, there will always be some food waste. Have any solutions?
