New Delhi, Jan 9: Cow urine may soon be used in Government offices to clean the floors.
According to media reports, ‘Gaunyle' which is derived from the urine of cows and spiked with natural perfumes will soon replace quintessential phenyl which is mostly used to clean floors in offices.
Reports say a charity, ‘Holy Cow Foundation' which is working to protect the cows that roam on streets, has developed a cleaning product with their urine.
Anuradha Modi, who heads the Holy Cow Foundation, said "Gaunyle has the anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties of cow urine and neem." She further said the product is being sourced from cow sheds in Mathura district of Uttar Pradesh."
"Initially when we tried the product, it had a strong smell. Nobody would have used it. So we have distilled the urine now and added natural ingredients like pine oil to cover the smell," Modi was quoted as saying in Firstpost report.
Modi further said that their foundation is working to get the company that supplies housekeeping items to government offices to use the product .
