Clean Green!

March 08, 2010

After a long winter, a good spring cleaning is a great way to bring a sense of renewal to your home.  This year, try green cleaning your home.  Families across the country are adopting new ways to clean that are good for the environment and healthy for their families.  The main goal of green cleaning is to use cleaning solutions and methods that will keep our environment healthy.  Try using non-toxic cleaning products.  Look for green cleaners that are "biodegradable", "phosphate-free", or "petroleum-free".  Choose cleaners that do not contain ammonia or chlorine because they give off toxic fumes that can irritate eyes and respiratory systems.  Try making your own cleaners at home.  Even the biggest messes and toughest stains can be tackled with baking soda, borax, lemon juice and more.
