Green cleaning has become quite a trend these days with all the health risks traditional, chemically-laden cleaning products pose for little humans and adults alike. And the benefits of cleaning with environmentally-friendly cleaning products are just far too great to ignore. Not sure that eco-friendly cleaning is right for you? Here’s why you might want to consider swapping your chemicals for natural options today!
Reasons to start green cleaning
1. You’ll reduce your exposure to toxins
When you start green cleaning, you’re immediately reducing your family’s exposure to harmful toxins. And when you don’t have to worry about toxic fumes, you’re not going to have to worry about proper ventilation or indoor air pollution as much either. The air inside your home will be cleaner and you won’t have to deal with toxic residue on your surfaces anymore. This means you won’t have to wipe down the counter before you expose foods to it.
2. You can finally let your kids clean with you
Wouldn’t it be awesome if your kids could pitch in with the household chores? The only problem is that conventional cleaning products aren’t safe for kids to use. But that’s what makes green cleaning so cool because it’s safe for every family member! When you invest in eco-friendly cleaning products, your kids can help you out without you worrying about their sensitive skin.
3. No more locking up the cleaning cabinets!
When you have kids, it’s safe to assume that everything and anything that isn’t securely locked up will probably get into (or near) their mouths. And the last thing you want is your kids ingesting some chemical cleaning products, which is exactly why you keep that cabinet locked. The good news about environmentally-friendly cleaning products is that they are non-toxic and not nearly as dangerous as chemical cleaning products. So even if your kid decides to taste it, you probably won’t have to rush to the emergency room.
4. You can DIY your way to a cleaner home
It’s super easy to make your own cleaning products, plus it’s very affordable too. The main ingredients in homemade cleaning products are water, vinegar, baking soda, castile soap, lemon juice, olive oil and essential oils. Armed with those ingredients, you can really make as many concoctions as you want! If you’re not exactly the DIY diva, you’ll find a range of options in the supermarket shelves too!
