Get your floors clean enough to eat off of—not that you would actually want to—with natural, non-toxic cleaners. With pets and little ones crawling around on the floor, not to mention your own occasional barefoot stroll now and then, there's no reason to leave behind a chemical residue.

Skip the products laden with artificial dyes, synthetic fragrances, petrochemical derivatives, potentially carcinogenic substances, and other harmful ingredients, such as triclosan, and get clean by keeping green. Try one of these eco-friendly products with biodegradable ingredients derived from plants, minerals, and enzymes. Many products don't even require hauling out the mop and bucket—now that makes for some easy, green cleaning.
