Tips to Keep Your Home Clean and Green

Practical green cleaning tips can help every homeowner keep their home organized, clean, and safe from toxins to ensure a clean and safe living environment. From using microfiber to making your cleaning products, these tips can contribute to making your home and the environment safer.

Low Effort

  • Buy quality microfiber cloths to clean better with fewer (possibly no) chemicals.
  • Use microfiber mops, not brooms, to remove daily traffic, dirt, and pet hair. This will keep you from stirring-up more allergens.
  • Use the mildest cleaning solution possible based on the job at hand.
  • Watch for Signal Words on product labels. Avoid anything stronger than "Caution!".
  • Wear rubber gloves to prevent absorption of chemical solutions and vapors through the skin.

Medium Efforts

  • Purchase green cleaning solutions in concentrated form and dilute them yourself. Use spray bottles that can be cleaned and reused to save money & waste.
  • Buy products that come in recyclable containers.
  • Choose solutions designed to work with cold water.
  • Get high quality entry mats to reduce the introduction of new dirt particles and chemical residues from the outdoors.
  • Avoid products (solutions, containers, equipment, mats, etc.) containing known or suspected carcinogens, neurotoxins, reproductive toxins, developmental toxins, or endocrine disruptors.

High Effort

  • Purchase a high-filtration vacuum with a closed canister system to trap and remove over 99% of the particles measured at 1 micron or larger (including dust, dirt, pollen, dust mites, pet dander, hair, and mold – a.k.a. really tiny stuff).
  • Switch to a chemical-free dry steam vapor system to clean, deodorize, disinfect, and kill mold, and mildew using water alone.
  • Make your own natural cleaning products using baking soda, lemons, vinegar, borax, and vegetable-based oil soaps. This give you complete knowledge of and control over any cleaning chemicals in your home.
