Green House Cleaning Tips

 

We all want a clean home but many products on the market are petroleum-based and filled with toxins. So, how do we keep our environment germ-free yet also free of harsh chemicals that could be harming our families?

In fact, some cleaners even have—often in very small print on the bottom of the package—small pictures of babies or pets in a red circle with a line through it. This is the company’s subtle way of letting you know that the chemicals are harsh for your child and dog. There are countless products that could be leeching chemicals or polluting the indoor air in our home.

Here are some tips for Green cleaning:

1.) There are plenty of “Green” cleaning products for sale and online. Do your research---some are “green” because they are good for the environment: some because they have less toxins that harm our bodies: and the best do both!

2.) Bathtubs need to be very clean. But constantly using bleach and other chemical-based cleaners can be harmful. Try using white wine vinegar—first splash a good amount throughout the tub and tiles. Let soak then scrub down with hard brush. Pour some hydrogen peroxide in the tub for extra cleanliness.

4.) Baking soda and lemon juice can tackle a bunch of household cleaning needs! Deodorize drains and hampers with baking soda and cut grease build-up with a little diluted lemon juice. Make a paste of baking soda and water to scrub bathrooms and kitchens.

5.) Find non-toxic laundry detergent and throw out those dryer sheets, which can be filled with chemicals that coat our clothes, bedding, and towels.
