It doesn't take a thorough investigation to conclude that pre-moistened disinfecting wipes are wildly popular across the U.S. In fact, more and more households are opting to use the wipes as part of their regular cleaning routine, with names such as Lysol and Clorox becoming a staple for the average American house. The convenience and ease that pre-moistened towelettes offer make them an incredibly attractive buy for those wanting an effective, but also quick, clean. 

Despite the hype surrounding disinfecting wipes, there has been an incredible amount of push-back from individuals concerned about the amount of chemicals present in popular brands like Lysol and Clorox. This concern extends beyond cleaning wipes to all supplies marketed for cleaning that contain potentially harmful chemicals. Countless articles have surfaced drawing awareness to the "hidden" chemicals in commonly used cleaning supplies. Not only that, but the backlash includes frustration over the cost of cleaning products, especially when those products are advertised as "green."

In the midst of countless ads, it's easy to forget that vinegar and baking soda can be used for just about any area in need of cleaning.
