Household cleaning 

It’s no secret that toxic chemicals are found in many of the household cleaning products on the market today. Some of the ingredients lurking in those sprays and solutions can cause serious health risks for you and your family, so it’s important to decide which products to use and which products you would rather avoid. Today, there are numerous choices for eco-friendly, non-toxic cleaning products, and there’s also the option of whipping up your own homemade, natural cleaning solutions from ingredients you probably already have at your home. 

Want to learn more about green cleaners? The Eartheasy website lists several homemade cleaners made from basic ingredients that are inexpensive and easy to find. They also have a list of non-toxic commercial cleaning products.

I make my own laundry detergent using Fels Nafta soap, washing soda and Borax. Also use vinegar as rinse agent plus many other uses around the house.

Like others I use vinegar, baking soda, essential oils. I now make not only my own body soap but I make laundry soap and dish washing soap. Have actually sprinkled baking soda on half a lemon and used that to scrub my shower! Use the microfiber cloths and the steam machine also. Looks like we're pretty much all on the same page!
