Green Household Cleaning
I started on my "Green Dream" about 2 years ago. I am pretty certain for the first 7 months I purchased more products and supplies than I had in my entire life. I spent thousand of dollars trying to figure out what had just enough "chemicals" to work... but not enough chemicals to be a danger to me, my husband or our cats. Here is a list of things that I found and where you can find them. Here is my proof that you don't HAVE to spend a ton of money to have a healthier, less toxic home.
So, what if I told you that the ONLY cleaning supplies I have in my home are: Old T-shirts for rags, micro-fiber towels, distilled white vinegar, essential oils, dish soap, laundry detergent and baking soda? Would you think I was totally gross and that there is no way my family is healthy or even still alive from the INSANE amount of germs and viruses spread across every service of my house? I bet your first mental image was that zoomed in computer generated cartoon video of what bacteria looks like on a counter after chopping raw chicken from the Lysol wipes commercial. Well... the truth is we are totally healthy and because we don't buy many cleaning supplies or disposable items, we can redirect those savings to the extra 10% it costs to buy all organic groceries. Its a win for our health, a win for the environment and a win for our wallets!
