Cleaning products can be one of the biggest risks to your family’s health. The majority of conventional cleaning products contain harmful ingredients, from dangerous chemicals to additives and much more.
Shopping eco-friendly cleaning products is one of the easiest ways to avoid these potentially dangerous products. Made with sustainable manufacturing practices and only naturally derived, safe, non-toxic and biodegradable ingredients, eco-friendly natural cleaners are safe for you and your family and do not negatively impact the environment.
However, if you really want to “go green” when it comes to cleaning products, you can start making your own, plant-based cleaners using herbs, oils, and other natural ingredients. Easy-to-make and easy-to-use, you can also save money making your own products as most of the ingredients don’t cost too much.
For example, you can make a very efficient and safe all-purpose cleaner made of water and vinegar. Plus, water and vinegar can make great glass cleaner products. You can clean windows using newspaper, which works better than paper towels. So, you recycle newspapers and save money by not buying paper towels.
Another great homemade product can be made if you need a potent surface scrub. Try mixing one cup of baking soda with ¼ cup of liquid castile soap as well as add a little bit of glycerin and about 10 drops of tea tree oil.
Additionally, laundry detergent can be very expensive particularly for families with children and/or babies. You can also make your own products ensuring that no harmful ingredients are used on your little ones’ clothes. A simple recipe includes washing soda, borax (sodium borate), and grated natural soap such as coconut soap. You can find several good recipes online to create safe and natural laundry detergent.
