Is anyone else getting cabin fever yet? Personally, I am hoping that we have had our last blast of frigid winter and that it is time to turn our attention towards SPRING! Along with spring comes the inevitable airing out and cleaning of our dwellings. Are we choosing green cleaning supplies or are we inadvertently adding to the toxins in our homes with the chemicals that we use. The list of known cancer causing toxins gets longer every year and many of these toxins are in the cleaning supplies that we have used and depended on for years. Over the past few months, I have been changing my family’s cleaning supplies over to a greener cleaning company and I am really enjoying the ease and better odors of these products. If you are like me, there are products that you have used to clean your shower and while spraying the cleaner, find it is necessary to hold your breath and then go running out of the bathroom to breathe but you continue to use them because the products clean so well. Not anymore! No, sirree! Now I can clean and breath at the same time. Lovely thought! A big plus for our family is that these products are totally budget friendly.
Fun Fact: If you sit down to write a post about green cleaning, you will have to stop to clean up cat vomit with those green cleaning products. GAAAGGGG, Watson! But the disinfectant that I just used on the carpet ALMOST made it worth it because it smells so much fresher in here now.
