Most modern synthetic cleaning products are based on age-old formulas using natural ingredients that were passed down through the generations because the chemistry was
right. Going back to the original naturally derived ingredients is a
way to make cleaning products that work, don’t pollute and save you
money. Most are found in your kitchen cupboards. Mix and match with
well-chosen and environmentally friendly green cleaning products found
in health food stores, and you can easily and simply transform your home
into a non-toxic and healthy haven.
Non-toxic cleaning can give you a deep feeling of gratification in knowing that your
family’s health is protected, and that your home is a place for your
bodies to rest and recuperate rather than promote harm.
Making your own nontoxic cleaning kit will take you no time at all
with these simple, straightforward directions, and with this kit you
will be supplied with enough cleaning product for months of cleaning.
As an added bonus, ounce for ounce homemade cleaning formulas cost
about one-tenth the price of their commercial counterpart—and that
includes costly, but worthwhile essential oils, and concentrated, all-purpose detergents for homemade recipes.
