Moving towards Eco Friendly Cleaning requires some Green Cleaning Products for your home. You can buy ready made ranges such as the Simple Green, Ecover or Mrs Meyer’s cleaning products. These of course are the easiest option, particularly if you are pressed for time.
You will really need to study the labels to ensure you purchase a green cleaning product that is up to your personal ‘green’ standards. Maybe you want less toxic, more easily disposed of cleaners. Or perhaps you want ‘all natural’ ingredients. You may have keen interest in packaging; how easy it is to recycle, whether it is produced from post consumer recycled materials to begin with, or is it plastic free (a pretty tough one this). For some the avoidance of petrochemicals is a must, or maybe you just want some super mild to protect your babies skin when you are dealing with the laundry.
The options are huge and to be honest no one range is likely to appeal to everyone. We all have compromises to make between being less harmful to the environment, and our standards of cleanliness. You must choose green cleaning products that are exactly right for you and your lifestyle.
An easy way to know exactly what ingredients are going into your green cleaning supplies is to use homemade remedies. Now very few of us have time to create all our own cleaning materials. But, switching one or two key items from pre-made formula to home-made Eco clean recipe can be done easily and with little trouble on your part. If nothing else use baking soda to deodorize your garbage pail rather than usually extremely toxic deodorizer sprays. Or ditch the windolene in favor of some vinegar and a microfiber cloth. A few homemade recipes can really cut costs to your pocket and the planet and are a great way to supplement your other less than perfect green cleaning products.
Our desire to make cleaning Eco friendly and live more sustainable, less polluting lifestyles, is a noble one. But we have to be realistic here and never forget that even one product changed is a help. Choose or make one Green Cleaning Producttoday and who knows, next month you may choose another until by next year perhaps all your household chores are more environmentally friendly?
Amazon now sell a wide range of green and Eco cleaners that may be of interest.
