Green cleaning products are in!  From kitchen sprays and liquid soaps to bathroom scrubs and laundry detergents, cleaning products are becoming healthier while trying to protect the environment at the same time.  Cleansers are going green…or are they?  

Since federal law doesn’t require manufacturers to list all chemicals on the products, it is difficult for most people to know whether the products are safe.

Green cleaning is the way to go when it comes to cleaning.  Green cleaning is removing contaminants, which produces a healthier greener environment.  It is a combination of products, equipment and procedures that are safe, environmentally friendly and non-polluting. 

Try and use products that are certified by Green Seal to be safe and effective.  Avoid products that contain harmful iingredients such as ammonia, chlorine, ethanolamines, and APE’s (alkylphenolethoxylates).
