6 DIY Green Cleaning Products
Is your house really clean if, when you’re done, it’s covered in toxic chemicals? Here are 6 resources for DIY green cleaning products to help you clean green on the cheap!
Conventional cleaning supplies are chock full of mystery chemicals, including some that are potentially very harmful to your family’s health. Some of these carcinogens and endocrine disruptors are right on the label, while others hide behind misleading names like “fragrance.” Instead of trying to decipher those laundry lists of polysyllabic ingredients, why not make your own DIY green cleaning products instead?
Whether we’re talking laundry or scrubbing the toilet, cleaning the house is no joke! You don’t want to go through all of that work and end up with a house that’s actually less clean than it was before you started, but that’s basically what happens with many conventional cleaning products. Check out these DIY alternatives!
