Did you know that the Environmental Protection Agency ranks indoor air pollution among the top environmental dangers, and much of this pollution comes from common cleaning products. We will refer to these as “indoor pollutants”. Initially, effects of exposure to indoor pollutants can include irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, asthma, fatigue, headaches, dizziness and other respiratory illnesses, however, with repeated long term exposure, the effects could be far worse including respiratory diseases, heart disease, and even cancer. Therefore, let us discuss Non-toxic homemade cleaning products which can be used as an alternative should you wish to pursue this route. These are not only healthier for us, they can also help save us money and protect the environment as chemical-laden cleaning products aren’t the only means to keeping your home sparkly and clean. The best part is - most of the most powerful cleaning products may well already be on your pantry shelf. Baking Soda Baking soda has proven virus-killing abilities that also effectively cleans, deodorizes, brightens, and cuts through grease and grime. Olive Oil This healthy-for-you cooking oil works as a cleaner and polisher. Vinegar Due to its acidity, vinegar eliminates grease, soap scum, and grime effectively and gently. Castile Soap Castile soap is a style of soap that’s made from 100 percent plant oils (using no animal products or chemical detergents) Cleans beautifully and great for those greasy areas. Lemon Juice Natural lemon juice annihilates mildew and mold, powers through grease, and shines hard surfaces. Essential Oils Due to aromatherapy, essential oils have gained popularity and make great scent additions to homemade cleaning products (especially if you’re not into the smell of vinegar). Essential oils are generally considered safe, but these extracts can trigger allergies—so keep this in mind when choosing scents. A note on mixing products: Most of these ingredients can be used in combination with each other; however, many sources advise against mixing castile soap with vinegar or lemon juice as castile soap is basic (high on the pH scale) and vinegar and lemons are acidic, therefore the products basically cancel each other out when used in combination however, it is fine to wash with a base—like castille soap—and rinse with an acid—like vinegar.
