Switch to natural cleaning products and get rid of household chemicals!, 853°

Out at the Homestead we have made the switch to environmentally friendly cleaning products. Baking soda, vinegar and sometimes lemon. They work just as well as anything you can buy in the store, but they are non-toxic and environmentally friendly. Removing chemical cleaners from your home also makes it a safer place for children and pets.

It's very easy to make your own cleaning products and they DO WORK! Here are some recipes:
Window Cleaner
- ½ t mild dish detergent, 3T vinegar, 2 cups water. Put all ingredients into a spray bottle and shake.

Air Freshener
- add six drops of essential oil to one cup of water. Using Eucalyptus globules will help to disinfect your air as well.

Dish Soap
- grate a small amount of Castile soap into warm water.

All Purpose Cleaner
- 2T vinegar, 1 t Borax, hot water, a few drops of a mild dish detergent, 10 drops of essential oil (optional). In a 16 spray bottle put vinegar, borax and hot water. Swish around until borax has dissolved. Add the drops of dish detergent and fill the rest of the bottle with water. Add the essential oil.

Here's a link to even more:

Give them a try - you may be surprised.

I switched my entire household over to environmentally friendly products from a green manufacturer nearly 5 years ago! They make everything from my toothpaste, to my shampoo, to my laundry products and then some. I actually have built a business around helping other folks do the same. We have found that we save money too! If you would like to convert your household over, I can provide you with information about what I did to see if it is right for you.

I make my own laundry soap:
equal parts grated bar soap, washing soda and borax, it only takes 3 tablespoons per load and it works great! Omit the borax if you use the gray water on plants.

Has anyone tried soap nuts (they're actually dried big berry-like fruit from sapindus trees) for laundry? They are awesome! Your clothes are clean, soft and totally odor-free (heaven for perfume sensitive folks like me!). Incidentally, if anyone knows where I get can get some in Tokyo, please share.

If you're going off to college and getting cleaning supplies, itd be a good time to make sure your dorm room was green!

We use all natural, fragrance free products to clean the house, such as vinegar, baking soda, and Borax.

I switched to Shaklee products after seeing them on Oprah's Earth Day show in 2007. Not only are they non-toxic, but they're also concentrated. Which translates to less bottles for the landfill or having to recycle!

Its all about gradually replacing the things in your household as the get used up. Conscious consummers!

in July 2010

I'm also trying to go packaging-free -- using bar soap for dishes, shampoo, etc. -- anyone know a good place to find such products?

in September 2010

Vinegar and baking soda is all you need.

Also lavender is a great disinfectant as well. I use 1:25 lavender:water ratio and wipe down my desk and kitchen/bathroom bench tops with it. Makes the room smell great too.

in September 2010

I have been using soap nuts. Berries from sapindus mukorossi tree. they berries are rich with saponin. Saponin can clean anything. We use it for washing laundry, dishes, shampoo, bath foam, etc. Its natural so it preserves your clothes color. If you want to know more about soap nuts and how to make liquid soap out of the berries .... add me on FB ... eco kiddo.

in November 2010

I also stopped using plug-ins and switched to Mrs. Meyers... better and last longer too!

Marcal makes a line of paper towels, toilet paper, facial tissue and dinner napkins from 100 percent recycled paper. They don't use pulp from trees. Need to know how much post-consumer content they use. More information can be obtained at www.marcalsmallsteps.com.

Together with non compostable household waste, the chemicals found in private household commodities pose a serious ecological problem. In addition to having slightly adverse up to seriously toxic effects when swallowed, chemical agents around may contain flammable or corrosive substances. Thank you.
