Benefits of using green cleaning products

Being environmentally friendly is as important as ever.  And while things like recycling cans and bottles, and using reusable grocery bags is good, if you’re not already using green cleaning products, you may want to consider making the switch.

Eco-friendly cleaning products aren’t just good for the planet—they’re good for your family, too.

They’re better for family members who have allergies and asthma

Harsh chemicals tend to irritate those who have upper respiratory issues. When they’re used frequently, they can increase a child’s risk of developing asthma. On the other hand, studies have also shown that using green cleaning products can reduce the chance that a child will develop asthma. Eco-friendly solutions can help ensure your house stays clean while your loved ones will continue to breathe easy.

They’re safer

When you clean with conventional products, you run the risk of irritating your skin. In some cases, if you find yourself dealing with a spill, the contents of the bottle could burn you. You won’t have this problem with green cleaning products.

They’re less expensive

A lot of people are worried that eco-friendly cleaning products will cost them an arm and a leg, but that simply isn’t the case.  In previous blog posts, we’ve talked about ways to make green cleaning products with things you probably already have around the house. For example, a solution of vinegar and water can be used to clean windows and mirrors, half a lemon sprinkled with salt can be used to scrub down your toilets, and baking soda can be added to a load of wash to help get your clothes smelling fresh.

When it comes to eco-friendly cleaning techniques, you don’t need to worry about breaking the bank.

You’ll know what you’re using

If you go into your laundry room and you pull out your go-to bottle of all-purpose cleaning solution, we’re guessing that you won’t be able to pronounce half of what’s on the ingredients list. If you don’t know what it is, do you really want to be spraying it throughout your home?

When you make your own eco-friendly cleaning products, you’ll know exactly what’s going into the bottle.
