Miracle Green Cleaner - Vinegar

Vinegar is the superhero of “green” household cleaning products. You can use it in various ways to keep your house sparkling clean. Using white distilled vinegar as an all-around cleaner is preferable to store bought harsh, toxic chemical blends because it is safe to use. One reason some people may steer clear of using vinegar is because of the not so pleasant aroma. Well, you don’t have to worry because even though it doesn’t smell too good when you’re using it when it dries there no smell at all! Cleaning with Vinegar Windows & Mirrors - Fill a 16 oz. spray bottle with ½ vinegar and ½ water to clean windows and mirrors then wipe down with newspaper for a streak-free shine. Microwave - To clean out a dirty microwave put 1 cup of vinegar and 1 cup of water in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 5 minutes. Let stand for 15 minutes and wipe out with a damp cloth. This will loosen the food particles for easy cleanup. Dishwasher – To help remove the...

 


The Best Natural Laundry Soap Recipe

Our skin is the largest organ of our body and it can absorb things we touch or wear. This means that our clothes, sheets, blankets, towels and everything else we wash with most commercial laundry soaps are transferring the toxins from these products into our bodies. “I didn’t know laundry soaps include toxins,” you say. Yes, they do. A few of which are: phenols, phosphates and artificial fragrances. Phenols are made from crude oil by an industrial process. The dangers of phenols are many, including heart, lung, kidney and liver damage. Since the skin very easily absorbs phenols you should avoid any laundry products with these toxic chemicals. If swallowed, phenols can cause circulatory collapse, coma and even death. Phosphates are used to soften hard water so clothes absorb water and detergent to lift soil from the fibers of your clothes. The problem here is that phosphates can cause skin irritation, nausea and vomiting. Another issue is that phosphates released into the environment c...

 


Fight Mold & Mildew Naturally

If you’ve ever had mold or mildew you know how unsightly it is. But, did you know it also has detrimental effects on your health? People with compromised immune systems, the elderly and infants are especially susceptible. Left untreated, growing mold can cause a variety of health problems: • Allergic type reactions (such as nasal stuffiness, scratchy throat, coughing, sneezing) • Mental fog • Chronic fatigue • Itchy and irritated skin conditions (if you come in contact with it) • Aggravate and worsen asthma conditions • Respiratory infections • Lung damage Mold and mildew may be in your home without you even realizing it. It tends to grow in damp, humid places, like the bathroom, or around leaky pipes or windows. Mold looks like green or black dots, and sometimes grows in a circular pattern. You might not see the mold if it’s growing under the sink or in the basement but if it has been growing in an enclosed space you will definitely be able to smell...

 


How To Make Your Own Green Carpet Cleaner

Many commercial carpet cleaners and fresheners use toxic chemicals such as formaldehyde, phenols, pesticides, lye, and phthalates (among others) in their ingredients. Using these products is not only dangerous for the environment and your health, but it can also make your carpet more resistant to cleanings. For example, soaps actually help carpets to collect and hold in the dirt. Instead of using harsh commercial shampoos, consider making your own greener carpet cleaner. These are few great ways to remove stains, clean and deodorize your carpet for some of the common problems we all face at one time or another: Bright Liquid Spills Red wine, fruit juice, and other liquid are some of the toughest to get out of carpet. The key is to clean up while the spot is still wet. First, blot up (do not rub – rubbing will only push it further into the carpet) as much liquid as you can with a clean cloth or paper towel, then generously pour table salt all over the area and allow to dry. Once dry, vacuum up and...

 


Make Healthy Air Fresheners From Household Items

Many store-bought air fresheners contain toxic chemicals, spreading them throughout your home every time you use them. You’ve probably used these products for years, and may be thinking to yourself that you’ve yet to experience any side effects. But did you know that prolonged use can cause serious health problems which you may never attribute to your commercial air fresheners? A study conducted by the University of Washington in 2010 found that out of the 25 commonly used scented products they tested, there were an average of 17 chemicals emitted from each one. There were 133 total chemicals identified throughout the entire testing process and approximately 25 percent are considered hazardous or toxic. Surprisingly, only one was listed on the product label. What about the other 132 chemical compounds that you are unknowingly discharging into the air? The sad thing is that manufacturers of these types of air freshening scented products (as well as personal care products, cleaning supplies...
