Anyone who’s house proud will always look for ways that they can keep their home cleaner. I can’t stand too much mess, even though there’s no way around some of it when you have a little boy! If, like I do, you also worry about the effect your cleaning has on the environment, there are ways you can put your mind at rest. Various cleaning fluids and other products contain lots of chemicals. And you might be concerned about having them around your home. You can create a greener cleaning routine. Use some of these methods that I personally recommend.
Buy Green Products
Start off by looking for commercial products that are advertised as eco-friendly. There are a lot of natural products you can find in your kitchen. But if you’re like me, you won’t always have time to mess around with them. It’s much easier to tip something straight out of a bottle. And often commercial products work better too. There isn’t a huge selection of green cleaning products for you to buy, but you should be able to find a few options.
Use Natural Cleaning Agents
If you find you have a limited choice of cleaning products you can buy, you can make your own. You might be surprised by how many things you can find in your home that you can use to clean around the house. But if you think about it, we kept our homes clean for a long time before we had so many manufactured products. Some of the things you’ll have in your home include vinegar, baking soda and lemon juice. Different ingredients will work best on different surfaces. So do some research on what to use.
One of the concerns in any home is how much water you use. Water is a precious commodity, and you don’t want to waste it. Reusing the water in your home can be one solution. You don’t wish to use the “grey water” from your baths or sink to wipe down your surfaces. But there’s one place where it’s useful. Use it to fill the tank above your toilet to flush it while you’re cleaning.
Avoid Air Fresheners
A lot of commercial air fresheners have chemicals in them that you probably don’t want to be breathing in. Instead of using them, it’s best just to try to keep your home as clean as possible. If you wish to add a natural scent to your home, use something like potpourri or even just a vase of flowers.
Green Cleaning Company
Not everyone has the time to do all their own cleaning. If you’re busy, hiring a green cleaning company can be best. As well as saving you time, they’ll have all the best eco-friendly methods for keeping your house clean. For example, if you visit carpetcleaningnyc.net, you’ll see the organic methods they use to clean carpets.
Whether or not you enjoy cleaning the house, you can do it in a way that has the least impact on the environment. Not only is it better for nature, but it’s better for your family too.
