Forget about hauling around a cabby full of harsh cleaning chemicals and try a non-toxic, eco-friendly all-purpose cleaner instead. Many can clean everything from walls to countertops to floors and everything in between, which makes for really easy and fast green cleaning. Plus, they often don't require rinsing. Just spray and wipe!
Unlike conventional cleaners, green all-purpose cleaners don't contain artificial fragrances, synthetic dyes, chlorine bleach, ammonia, petroleum-derived... ingredients, and other harmful ingredients, such as Triclosan. So, you're doing yourself and the environment a favor by giving them a try. And don't be fooled, even though they are green, they are just as mighty and "mean" at powering through the toughest grease, grime, and dirt!
Of course, the trusted, old-time favorites for general cleaning, such as castile soap, vinegar, and washing soda, work just as well, but if you're into the convenience of pre-mixed products, give one of these earth friendly cleaners a try. You'll be glad you did!
