Keywords: Making sustainable cleaning products
My design goal is to make people feel assured when making and using home-made cleaning products
The interaction with my product should be like cooking your mom’s spaghetti for the first time with her on the phone to guide you.
The “Greener Cleaner” a five-piece starter kit that allows users to make their own sustainable all-purpose surface cleaner at home. It consists of a container to make the scented vinegar, a spray bottle to mix and use the vinegar cleaner, a pamphlet made out of litmus paper that contains information to stimulate a switch in mindset in addition to allowing the user to test the final concoction. The set comes with a funnel to aid in the pouring of liquids from one container into the other and finally, a wooden stand to encourage users to display the cleaning product in their homes. By guiding the user through their first experience in making a home-made surface cleaner, the greener cleaner kit hopes to encourage the development of a more sustainable cleaning habit.
