So Fresh and So Clean: DIY Green Cleaning
St. Patrick's Day has come and gone, with it came shamrocks, leprechauns, and proudly-waving Irish flags. We at AdvantaClean want you to continue to do green this festive season with DIY green cleaning at home.
A growing number of toxic chemicals are finding their ways onto shelves and into homes, even though, for instance, the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) lists common household cleaner borax as a skin irritant and potentially disruptive to the reproductive system. To keep your home and your family safe from potentially harmful chemicals, consider the following DIY green cleaning tips.
- Baking soda to clean, deodorize, soften water, and scour.
- Unscented soap in liquid form, flakes, powders, or bars.
- Lemon for fighting most household bacteria.
- White vinegar to cut grease and remove stains and wax build-up.
- Cornstarch to clean windows, polish furniture, and shampoo carpets and rugs.
