Safer Cleaning for Allergy Season

May 06, 2013

When it comes to cleaning my home, I always try and use the safest and most efficient products on the market.  I have to be especially careful because my children and I suffer from allergies, so products containing harsh chemicals are not an option.

Four products that are known for their wonderful cleaning abilities are white vinegar, baking soda, lemon juice, and club soda.  Not only do these products work wonders cleaning my home, but they are safe for my family and the environment.

I use white vinegar to clean the bathroom.  Vinegar helps remove soap scum and mineral deposits in the shower.  It is great for cleaning toilets too!  Vinegar can also be used in the laundry, on the dishes, and a few sprays can even keep pests away!

Baking soda is great at removing odor and sweat stains from clothing.  It also works wonders as a cleaner because it is a mild abrasive which can be used to clean tubs, sinks, counter tops and even tile floors.  Baking soda can keep garbage disposals smelling fresh and can also neutralize pet odors, especially near the litter box.

Lemon juice is a mild disinfectant that is used as a bleach alternative.  Use it to clean counters, tile floors, or to remove stains on clothes!

Club soda is carbonated water that helps to remove many stains like red wine, juice, tea, or coffee.  It can also be used in the laundry.

Because my family suffers form allergies, choosing green cleaning products to clean my home is definitely the safer choice for me.
