Cleaning with caustic, hard hitting cleaning products might make the task a little easier, but it can be rough on the environment, both around your home and where it was produced. Chemicals used to make cleaning products are some of the most harmful out there, and take their toll on but the earth and us. After all, there is a reason most require a well-ventilated space in order to be used safely, and why it’s important to keep them out of the hands of children. But by going green with your products, you can much more safely clean your home, protect the environment, your children, AND yourself, all without losing that cleaning advantage.
Make it yourself. The cheapest way to go green effectively is to make your products yourself. There are a lot of recipes out there, but there are a few ingredients that continue to pop up over and over again. Vinegar and baking soda are near universal in and homemade recipe you’ll find online, and for good reason. They are very effective in cleaning up in almost anything, be it dirt, oil, grease, or other food stains. Mix these together with water and a few fresh smelling additives such as shredded soap, citrus acid, or lemon juice, and you have a very effective, green, and cheap homemade all-purpose cleaner.
Freshen the smell. Baking soda is really a wonder product when it comes to uses around the house. While everyone knows of its magical power to absorb stinky odors in the fridge, few realize that you can utilize this benefit throughout the house. Simply sprinkling baking soda over a carpet to soak up any smells, and then vacuum it up to freshen any room. Chemical air fresheners are also easy to replace; instead, bring together your favorite smells such as cinnamon, herbs, and cloves, and boil them together. The brew you create will fill you house with a wondrous aroma. Plants are also great natural filters that can enrich the air quality of any home.
Keep the dirt out. Most of the toxics and impurities that are brought into your home come through the front door. We walk through all manner of chemicals and waste every day, and rarely do we think about the significance of bringing that into where we work and live. A surprisingly large percentage of homes don’t even employ the relatively obvious and cheap expedient of an entry mate to scrub your shoes on. So consider buying a mate! And if you have it, it use; not just the customary one or two swipes, but a real, meaning cleaning. Paired with a no shoe policy, you can cut the dirt inside your home by half.
At the end of the day, most “green” solutions are really just simple things that can save your money and your health. Best of all, they help you to be a more considerate occupier of planet earth.
