10 ways to Green Your Cleaning products
Chemicals in cleaning products can contaminate ecosystems, cause skin irritation, and pollute the air inside your home. The simplest (and cheapest) way to keep cleaning chemicals out of your home and the waste stream is to use safe, simple ingredients, like vinegar and baking soda, that you probably already have on hand in their place. Save even more money (and landfill space) by reusing T-shirts, socks, newspapers, and more as rags and mops. If you do choose to buy commercial cleaning products, make sure they are made with natural, plant-based ingredients.
