Clean by Staying Green- Safer Alternatives to Commercial Cleaning Products

Posted on: April 20, 2008

In these times of people becoming more concerned with our environment and the future of our earth, we see more new ways to stay “green” and use environmentally safe and healthy products in our daily lives. It may surprise you to know that he air inside our homes and offices can be much more toxic than the air outdoors. This is largely due to the conventional cleaning products we use on a regular basis.

We clean our homes hoping we will protect ourselves from germs, bacteria and other harmful substances lurking in the air but the chemicals released from most common cleaning products can be just as harmful to us as the bacteria, viruses and other gunk that we are trying to clean away. In addition, the VOCs (volatile organic compounds) which are released from common household cleaners, aerosol sprays, disinfectants, air fresheners and more can actually be harmful to us and to our environment.

So what can you do to clean your home while still protecting your health and our environment? You need to learn how to clean green. Handling these common toxic household cleaning products can lead to respiratory infection, skin rashes, cancers, eye infections and other complications. To avoid the risk it is important to learn healthy and safer alternatives for cleaning.

So how can you clean green? First it is important to evaluate the products you are using to clean with. Read the labels and look for products that are known to be safe for the environment. Look for Eco-labels and terms such as eco-friendly and environmentally safe.

Another way to be absolutely certain the products you are cleaning with are safe is to make your own instead of purchasing commercial cleaning products. There are many great, safe products you can find or purchase for your home that do the same job of commercial cleaning products. Some of these include:

• White vinegar
• Olive oil
• Borax
• Lemon juice
• Baking soda
• Washing soda
• Vegetable soap

From these natural and chemical-free options, you can clean most anything in your home properly and safely while also keeping our environment safe. If you want to “clean green” you can also look on environmentally friendly websites for more tips on how to clean specific things in your home using safe products like the ones mentioned above.
