I stumbled on this article this morning. I remembered reading it but with time totally forgot which were the “worst household cleaners”.
I prefer green stuff, but I will sometimes use chemical cleaners when I need a little extra boost.
So, what a surprise it was for me to see the brand “Simple Green” on top of that list! Another proof that I should really really start making my own cleaners!
Another surprise to me was the Comet Powder. I always thought that it was the same as famous brand “Bon Ami” since they are both cleansing powders and sit side-by-side on the grocery shelf. I used Comet because my mom used it when I was a child. I still have some under my kitchen sink that I use from time to time to give my kitchen sink a thorough cleaning. Oops. I guess I’ll have to get rid of it.
Lucky for me I’ve always been wary of other types of cleaning, especially the “Febreze” kinds that pushes a bunch of chemicals in our breathing air. But reading this article really made me think I should make my own cleaners.
So, in order to give me a little push, here are a few links on how to make our own cleaners. Now I really have no excuses to use chemical cleaners!
