No More Chemical Cleaners

cleaning.jpgSpring is just around the corner and it will be time to clean your home from top to bottom. From the kitchen to the closet, using natural products have several advantages.

  • - Healthier – no harmful chemicals or additives that are dangerous to breath and absorb through your skin
  • - Inexpensive – natural cleaners will save you money
  • - Easily accessible – natural cleaners are easily found in your grocery store if they’re not already in your cupboard
  • - Safe for the environment – natural cleaners have no damaging effects on the environment and are not tested on animals

Before you begin the annual ritual of spring cleaning throw out all your chemical cleaning products.

Throw these out:

  • Degreasing cleaners for sinks and bathtubs
  • Multi-surface cleaners
  • Dishwashing liquid
  • Dishwasher detergents
  • Toilet bowl cleaners
  • Floor cleaners
  • Polishes
  • Window cleaners
  • Disinfectants and bleaches
  • Metal cleaners and scourers
  • Air fresheners

Go for “soft chemistry”:

    Great Blog – another great thing about natural cleaners is that they are so cheap! You can pick up a bag of washing soda (Soda Crystals) and White Vinegar for under a pound! – great if your on a budget! Traditional natural cleaners are also great fopr those who suffer with allergies as they do not contain the cocktail of chemicals which are in big brand cleaners.
