Earlier I posted Let me be your friend & let’s protect Children’s Health together! this is a follow-up to that post and the post Healthy Home-Cleaning Tips.
Today I wanted to share some tips for greening up your cleaning products to be safer for your children.
- If you use natural cleaners that are made with biodegradable, plants based ingredients and are formulated to be non-toxic they won’t create harsh fumes or emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from chemicals into your homes air supply.
- Instead of using air fresheners laced with harsh fumes and VOCs you can use cleaners with essential oils, baking soda, or place orange, lemon, and cloves into a pot of boiling water to give the air a pleasant smell.
What are some of your favor natural cleaners or brands? What other ways do you freshen up the air in your home?
My favorite Eco-Friendly green cleaning products are Method (Pink Grapefruit), Seventh Generation (Disinfectant wipes), and Mrs. Meyer’s (Honeysuckle)! Target always has great deals on these! I love candles to scent my home but there can be issues there too with chemicals but, Mrs. Meyers offers some great varieties which are a little more than glade but worth it. Also, The Honest Company offers a great candle, I once got an amazing deal with a bundle, discount code, and then Jessica offered a deal last Mother’s Day were every bundle got a candle! The candles are pricey when bought separately, so I suggest a bundle or watching for those holidays deals!
