Use Natural Household Cleaners for a Greener, Safer Home
(A green home can also be a clean home)
Natural household cleaners provide a good safe alternative to chemical cleaners for a clean, greener home. Using natural household cleaners can be an effective addition to your green living strategies.
More and more people are adversely affected by the chemicals in their home environment. Using non-toxic, natural cleaners reduces the burden.
Using non-toxic cleaning products is not really chemical-free cleaning. But the chemicals used in these environmentally-safe cleaning products have fewer effects on our health.
Please see the bottom of the page for links to different kinds of natural household cleaners.
Our modern homes are full of chemicals!
They are in the building materials used, the furniture and fittings and even everyday objects around the house such as the television and magazine covers. Some are harmless or inert and others are really quite toxic.
Its hard to avoid many of these chemicals.
After all, who wants to live without a TV?
Or a sofa?
Not very many people. (Modern sofas are treated with flame retardants.)
But there are ways we can reduce the number of toxic chemicals around us.
The first thing to do is to look at the products we use to clean our homes. We can certainly control which ones we buy!
How do chemical cleaning products affect us?
Many modern cleaning products contain harmful irritants and dyes. Some even contain solvents. Oven cleaners for example commonly contain toxic chemicals. Household bleach is a corrosive irritant and many multi-purpose cleaners contain a cocktail of chemicals, including ones which are thought to act on the central nervous system!
