Green Cleaning Products.

Doing your bit to help the planet from your own home does not need to be complicated.  Simply choosing to buy Green Cleaning Products is a great help to both the environment and the health of your own family.

Old fashioned cleaning products are often the cause of allergies and reactions, making them unpleasant to use.  Fine spray products such as window and glass cleaners are particularly problematic as they form such a fine mist it gets just about everywhere.  Breathing in something designed to dissolve grease is far from ideal, but who honestly can say they take all the necessary precautions to ensure they do not succumb to such obvious hazards.  Let’s be honest not many of us clean  the bathroom in a face mask and breathing apparatus, though if we use traditional cleaning products we probably should.

Using Green Cleaning Products helps enormously as they tend to be not just kinder to the environment, but kinder to us too.  This is not too say they are completely benign, but, on the whole green cleaners are a whole lot safer to be around than their ‘non green’ equivalent.

All Natural Green Cleaners are generally far less toxic to breath, and less likely to cause reactions if spilt on the skin.  Though we should still be careful with storage and use, that spillages are kept to a minimum and all cleaning products are safely out of reach of both children and pets, we can feel much safer in the knowledge that using the greener cleaner keeps the home a much healthier and less hazardous place to be.

Green Cleaning Products should still be treated with respect and used with care of course.  The key way to make your Cleaning Eco Friendly is to use less of whatever cleaners you choose, and even the greenest cleaner is far from beneficial to the environment.  Using less resources in our day to day lives is key to helping the planet keep us all thriving for as long as possible.  Every little bit helps and that includes using a little less ‘product’ and a little more elbow grease!

  1. Here are a few few green cleaning tips to clean appliances you might find useful.

    Microwaves – Mix 1/2 of water with a few teaspoons of baking soda in a microwave safe bowl. Put the bowl in the microwave and run it for 2 minutes. Take out the bowl and wipe it clean with just a rag; every last spot will come out!

    Ovens – You can rub the inside of your oven with wet steel wool to remove the tough stuff, and then sprinkle baking soda throughout the oven. Let it sit for a few minutes, then just wipe it all clean with a wet rag…all done and no caustic chemicals!

    Coffee Makers – When the coffee maker is empty, pour in a mixture of 1 cup white vinegar and some hot water to fill up the reservoir to the top. Run the coffee maker like you were making coffee, just without any beans in it. Once the cycle has finished, run it twice more with just plain water, which will rinse out the vinegar and any build up left inside. The coffee will taste better the next time you make a cuppa Joe!

    Refrigerators – Baking soda all the way…why would you want to spray chemicals in the giant box that holds your food! Make a nice paste from baking soda and water (equal parts of both) and scrub away. Wipe down with a clean cloth and all will be clean!

    Happy Green Cleaning!
