Cleaning

Another look at household cleaners

April 30, 2014 // 0 Comments

  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! http://mymerrymessylife.com/2012/03/diy-homemade-laundry-detergent-cheap-and-green-free-printable-2.html http://premeditatedleftovers.com/naturally-frugal-living/5-easy-diy-cleaning-products-you-can-make-yourself/ http://amy-newnostalgia.blogspot.com/2013/02/no-grate-no-cook-liquid-laundry.html http://www.survivingthestores.com/homemade-cleaners-floors-counters-tubs-non-toxic.html http://www.mnn.com/your-home/at-home/stories/make-your-own-housecleaning-products http://www.mnn.com/your-home/at-home/stories/cheap-and-natural-cleaning-alternatives http://www.onegoodthingbyjillee.com/2012/09/make-your-own-antibacterial-soft-scrub-cleanser.html   […]
