Along with food, organic products are taking over the shelves of stores everywhere. People are not only interested in having healthy organic meals, but also happily organic hair products, chap stick, clothes, notebooks, and cleaning products. Almost anything now has an organic or recycled alternative that is easy to find. Some people like to make everything themselves so they can save money and really know what they are using, but not everyone has the time or the talent to do so. When it comes to cleaning most people don’t want to make it last longer than it has to, so I am providing the top three natural cleaning supplies brands with also five need to know common household materials made into cleaning tools:)
Reliable Natural Brands:
Seventh Generation- This cleaning supplies company has taken off the past couple of years and is quickly growing to not only be the best organic cleaning supplies but the best cleaning supplies. “At Seventh Generation, we not only consider the safety of our own products, but that of the entire value chain as well. This includes the use of substances that may affect the health of the workers producing our ingredients and the quality of the air emissions and wastewater effluent at the plants processing our ingredients. We don’t want toxics being used or produced at any point in the many steps necessary to create our products.” Their Free & Clear products are safe to use anywhere throughout the house with out risk of poisoning your family and animals. Now a clean home really is a happy home!
method- method is another non-toxic all natural cleaning product. They use groundbreaking technology to ensure a strong clean without harming your enviornment. Now you don’t have to compromise your desire for natural ingredients and a clean home. “Our greenskeeping team rigorously assesses every ingredient we use, so we can be completely sure of its safety. That’s why method’s entire product line is both people- and pet-friendly, specially formulated to put the hurt on dirt without harming a hair on you or your loved ones’ heads.”
Mrs. Meyers- Although they don’t claim to be 100% all natural, none of their products are less than 97% naturally derived. My favorite part about their products is the basil scent, it is so refreshing and truly makes your rooms smell CLEAN, not just like a citrus toxic dump. “Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day products are safe to use in the presence of children, pets, and expectant women. There are no petroleum distillates, no bleach, no phosphates and no ingredients that could cause harsh fumes. In addition, most of our products have a near neutral pH that makes them safe for skin contact.”
Olive Oil- If you have any stainless steel in your kitchen or house, no need to buy that pricey little bottle of specialized cleaner to remove the smudges. Just put some everyday normal olive oil on a soft cloth and rub on your fridge, dishwasher, or microwave. This will leave your appliances looking sparkling new:)
Hydrogen peroxide and baking soda- This dynamic duo can erase grease and rust like nothing I ave ever seen.You can use it on your toilet bowls, bathtubs, old baking sheets, and stoves to renew parts of your house that you thought were long gone. It will make everything so clean that you could swear they have never been used!
Vinegar- Vinegar can be used for so much throughout the house. Anything from carpet stain remover to tea cup brightener. Some people can’t do the smell but if you don’t mind it than you can use this common household item for most of your cleaning needs. Spray some in the bathroom and wipe down everything to eliminate germs. Heat vinegar in a bowl and pour over gum that is stuck on carpet, fabric, or hair and the gum will dissolve cleanly. Clear your walls of crayon drawings with white vinegar and a little elbow grease.
Lemon juice- If you have rusty knives and silver wear, soak them in lemon juice and they will be spotless!
Dryer sheets- if you have dust accumulating around your floor boards just wipe a fresh dryer sheet across them and the dust will no longer stick to those hard to reach cleaning places!
