Why Do it?
Too many reasons, let’s start with the obvious, being environmentally conscious ensuring that perhaps only a few litres (it’s a start) of chemical-free water runs into your local waterways, waterways you probably swim in. The other top reason is for the safety of your family/friends/pets or employees. Everyone knows excessive chemical exposure is not good for anyone.
Isn’t it expensive?
It can be yes, Hollywood has made it this way, it’s popular and in fashion as many celebrities have endorsed certain products. Don’t get angry, in the end, they are supporting the environment intentionally or not. If money isn’t an issue you can head to your local health food store or more recently local supermarket and pick up some eco-friendly cleaning products. For those who are on a budget, I haven’t forgotten about you, I have some easy budget options for you. Read on.
Eco-Friendly Cleaning on a Budget.
Believe it or not, you can find the most basic/effective eco-friendly cleaning products in your pantry (well most of you). It’s as simple as using these ingredients from your pantry:
White Vinegar: a mild disinfectant and good general cleaner for glass, bench tops, shower screens and floors.
Bicarbonate Soda: not just for cakes. It acts as a gentle scourer for sinks and baths.
Salt: an unexpected wonder additive that acts as an extra scourer and helps lift those tough stains.
Anyone can do it. It’s not only fo hippies and the old fashioned. It’s back in fashion; it can be cheap and at the same time you are doing your part for the environment.
If you don’t have time to clean and you use regular cleaners, make sure you check or request that they use eco-friendly chemicals in your home or workplace. This will ensure again, that your home or work environment is safe for your family, friends, pets or employees.
