The Best Non-Toxic Ingredients For Your Home

February 23, 2013

Did you know you can clean your entire house with about 7 to 10 different ingredients that you may already have right under your kitchen sink?

Here are the ingredients I use to make my home sparkle.  The best part about using these ingredients is that they are mostly non-toxic, which helps keep my family and my pets healthier:

Vinegar: I use it for everything.  It dissolves grease, soap scum and dirt, plus it absorbs odors.

Baking Soda:  A great scouring powder and a natural deodorizer.

Borax:  I use this to clean my laundry.  Borax removes dirt and eliminates odors.  Be careful around pets and children when using borax.  It may be toxic if swallowed.

Lemons:  Lemons cut greafights fight bacteria.  Lemons are great stain removers and deodorizers.

Club Soda:  Great as a stain remover.

Hydrogen Peroxide:  Acts as a bleach and helps clean mold.

Castille Soap:  A great all-purpose cleaner for the home.

Pumice Stick: I use this to help get tough stains out.

Olive Oil:  A wonderful way to polish your furniture.

Essential Oils:  Add them to your cleaning products and they great wonderful scents!

Try using some of the ingredients listed above in your home and you too can have a healthy, non-toxic, clean home!
