Non-Toxic Cleaning Solutions

All-Natural Cleaning Solutions Real Simple
Also::one of my favorite things to clean with is my Steamer. No cleaning products needed. Just steam. Love it! I can clean the sinks, tubs, floors with just water! So satisfying not to smell horrible bleach!
I also use baking soda when I need something to get the soap scum off the tub or yucky marks out of the potty. Works like a charm.
I use a vinegar and water solution to clean my counters. Ok--it smells a little funky at first (don't make it too strong. A little vinegar goes a long way). The scent dissapates quickly and the best part is if you accidently squirt yourself in the face>and yes, I have done this>you won't have to flush your eyes out worrying you will go blind.
Simple tips I learned from NICU nurses when my daughter was born preemie and had a long stay in the hospital. Those nurses are information machines! I wanted to keep all chemicals out of the house. We have done this now for 8 years and I wouldn't change a thing!
So not only will you save a buck or two, you are being kind to your lungs and Mother Earth.
Keep up the Green work!

  1. Just a reminder that those bathroom & kitchen sprays to mask odors are not good for you or the environment! Frankly--they give me a headache and that just shows my body sending me a message to get away from the toxic fumes! Our bodies are smart. We just need to listen :)
