Learning about Cleaning Products/ Health

"Air quality inside our homes is often much worse than the air outside," says Sierra Club's Hattam. One way to cut down on indoor air pollution is to use nontoxic cleaning products. For starters, rid your house of ammonia and bleach, which are among the worst offenders. Then stock up on green cleaners or make your own. Other easy tips: Throw open the windows regularly to ventilate, and fill the house with plants — they absorb air pollutants."

"Nontoxic cleaning can give you a deep feeling of gratification in knowing that your family's health is protected, and that your home is a place for your bodies to rest and recuperate rather than promote harm."

~Method products found at Target are a good choice, they smell good, and do the job. Also there are recipes to make your own cleaning solutions, which work very well, using the ingredients of baking soda, lemon juice and vinegar. Here are some recipes

Good advice! I love to use vinegar to clean, and it's so cheap compared to regular cleaning products! It's nice to know it is an enviornmentally good choice too! :)
