Plans afoot to clean offices with cow urine

Cow urine may soon be used to clean the floors of India's government offices in a country where bovines are sacred and their bodily waste considered therapeutic and even thirst-quenching.

A charity working to care for and protect the cows that freely roam India's streets has developed a cleaning product with their urine - distilled and spiked with natural perfumes to remove the pungent odor.

"Initially when we tried the product, it had too strong a smell. Nobody would have used it. So we have distilled the urine now and added natural ingredients like pine oil to cover the smell," said Anuradha Modi from the Holy Cow Foundation.
