New cleaning products offer refillable bottles
A new line of cleaning pro-ducts is designed to reduce waste and shipping costs.
JAWS (Just Add Water System) products come in spray bottles that are designed to be refilled and reused.
The refill comes in a small cartridge containing a concentrated form of the cleaner, to which you add tap water. That reduces the cost of shipping larger containers of cleaner.
JAWS is available in a glass and hard-surface cleaner, a multipurpose cleaner and degreaser, a bathroom cleaner and deodorizer and a disinfectant cleaner and degreaser.
All but the disinfectant are available at Bed Bath & Beyond. They sell for $7.99 for a filled bottle plus two refill cartridges, or $3.99 for two refills. They also can be ordered at www.buyjaws.com.
More information about the products is available at www.jawsclean.com.
