Cleaning green, with caution

Re [“Safely Clean?,” April 28]: Kermit was wrong! It's easy being green if your motivation is pure profit. What's hard? Identifying what's safe. I think some manufacturers are just making more dirty laundry.

There should be new rules in a green revolution -- transparency and full disclosure.

I am disturbed that one of the topics was mixing one's own green chemicals. I have been in the cleaning chemical business for over 20 years. It never ceases to amaze me how many people think they can play chemist.

The article should not reinforce the notion that people with no chemistry background should be smarter than their own good.
