Will I have to change the way I do things to use ‘safe’ products?

Using safe products requires a change in thinking and the way we do things. For instance, a product may be more concentrated so less is needed or, it doesn’t require a solvent to clean up. The product may have a smaller temperature range in which it can be used or may take longer to dry, so adjusting how you do things is important for the product to the successful.

Sometimes people use green products and expect them to act in exactly the same way as their hazardous counterparts and when they don’t get the same results they declare the green product a ‘failure’.

The message is don’t expect to just replace a hazardous product with a safer product without also needing to change the way you use it.
