Cleaning "Green"

Cleaning "Green"

Toxicity. Do we know what this means? Can you even say it ten times fast? Whatever it is, we know it has become a way of life.


It is a fact that we are exposed daily to an incredible array of toxins in our everyday lives. They are "toxins," and each one has a certain degree of toxicity to it. Toxicity can be determined in a variety of ways.

With interest in a sparkling house, you need to know a bit about it to protect yourself, your family, and anyone whose house you clean.

The next question becomes how can you respond and what can you do?

Well, you can do a lot like a dedicated house cleaner. First, limit your exposure. Read labels carefully. Use non-toxic cleaning products. Avoid using indoor pesticides.

Secondly, limit the exposure to the people around you. Happily, there are plenty of practical, earth-safe cleaners for you and your house that you can buy or make. Borax mixed with lemon juice will take out toilet-bowl stains. White vinegar helps disinfect bathrooms and kitchens. Bon Ami, a borax-based powder cleanser sold in supermarkets and hardware stores for more than 50 years, safely cleans pots, pans, sinks, oven interiors, and other rusted surfaces.

Using these alternatives will reduce the toxic load in your house and beyond. Using environmentally friendly cleaners will also safeguard your health and that of the community. It reduces air, water, and ground pollution in the big picture.

So why isn't everyone doing it? The reality is that few people check labels. Start now. Take time to read the label. Distinguish yourself as a "green cleaner." You can start a trend. You can become a product toxicity home specialist.

The first thing to know is that not all "green" products are created equal. Again, read. Catch the ones that have been prettied up with essential oils. Check labels for irritating chemicals such as chlorine, ammonia, and artificial fragrances and dyes.

This is the product we recommend using.
