This summer I’ve decided to take a serious look at the cleaning products I use in our house. This will include laundry soap, dish detergent and hand soap.
I’ve always been interested in cleaner living but never really committed to it 100%. But now is the time to start really living, and cleaning, the way I want! And since I’ve posted this online I’m forced to be held a bit more accountable.
For as long as I can remember I’ve had sinus problems. They always feel stuffy like I have a cold. When I try to blow my nose, nothing comes out. I can’t really do anything about this medically speaking. But then I got thinking maybe the products I encounter everyday are partly responsible.
“Products” being soaps and cleaners. I mean, they are jam packed with chemicals we all know are bad. And the artificial fragrance they contain almost always gives me a headache! So the other day I checked out some books on environmentally friendly cleaning methods from my local library.
I picked through them today and tried a couple methods out on my home. I was pleased with their alterative to glass cleaner (club soda!) but sprinkling my counters with a baking soda paste only made them feel dirtier…but there are so many more options for me to try!
I’ll be posting a fair bit on these new-to-me methods of cleaning because I want other people try to it out too.
For now I’ll mainly be using 3 books as a guide but I’m also planning to utilize the internet.
Do you have any really good, eco friendly cleaning tips? I’d love to hear them!
