Green Cleaning the Home

Can you imagine what cleaning would be like without your favorite chemical cleaners from the store? While they might be convenient and simple to use, they aren’t necessarily the best for your surfaces or the healthiest for your family.

With Earth Day around the corner, now is the perfect time to start thinking about new ways of tidying up the home. For starters, you can toss away those chemicals, because chances are you already have all the ingredients you need in your pantry.

• Baking Soda
• White Vinegar
• Hydrogen peroxide
• Essential oils, like tea tree oil, lavender oil, eucalyptus oil, or lemongrass oil
• Castile soap (such as Dr. Bronner’s)
• Borax
• Fresh herbs, citrus, or citrus peels
• Olive or vegetable oil
• Water

Using these ingredients, you can make it on your own green cleaners in no time! And to make cleaning up easier, here are a few tips to keep in mind:

• Sanitize sponges in the microwave for 2 minutes
• Use a toothbrush to get those hard-to-reach spots like your cabinet molding
• Clean fan blades with a clean pillow case
• Remove pet hair from furniture by dampening a rubber glove
