House Green and Clean

18 Jun

lemonsI have been getting some good blog feedback lately and what I am hearing is that I am apparently slightly kale obsessed. Not that there is anything wrong with this…but there is so much more to healthy living than kale and I want to share it all with you! So today I am moving along and moving forward onto my next favorite green; collards, just kidding. This green issue is not the leafy green type, it’s about ‘house green and clean’ and I have to say for the sake of our ultimate health and that of our families, our bodies and also that of the sake of the health of the planet, let’s not contribute to creating a more toxic home. House green and clean and feel the difference! Here are some tips on how you can do it!

Here is a list of natural products that will get you on your way to cleaning naturally:

  • Baking Soda – good for scrubbing dirty surface also reacts to lemon and vinegar.
  • Borax – It whitens, and deodorizes area and surface.
  • Lemon Juice – Deodorizes, disinfects and cut through greases.
  • Olive Oil – Removes dirt and polishes wood surface.
  • Cornstarch – Can be used to polish furniture and clean windows.
  • Vinegar – Loosen dirt and disinfects.
