As a clean freak, at one time I believed that my home couldn’t possibly be clean without store-bought, chemically-based cleaners. Was I ever wrong!
The cleaners I eagerly used may have seemed effective, but they were toxic. Since I’ve changed to a healthier lifestyle, the hazardous cleaners were first replaced by homemade cleaners – and then something much simpler.
So how do I safely clean my house from top to bottom?
First, I gather my supplies. I use Norwex cleaning cloths, but I also make sure baking soda, castile soap, essential oils, hydrogen peroxide, lemons, salt, washing soda and white vinegar are handy.
Once I have my supplies, here’s how I clean particular rooms:
