What Makes Substitute Blanket Washes Different From Regular Blanket Washes

Image depicting savings
Compared to older high-VOC washes, a substitute blanket wash that you should look for would contain less VOCs and no HAPs. The substitute wash will probably evaporate less quickly, which means that it will be less likely to reach people and the environment through the air. Traditional blanket washes are often made primarily with VOCs. In comparison, the substitute blanket washes may be made from vegetable oils and/or their fatty acid esters, terpenes, less volatile petroleum components, or mixtures of one or more of these.
