This week’s Reduce, Reuse & Recycle Challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to learn more about the products you’re using when you clean your bathroom.
For starters, head to the Environmental Working Group’s Cleaning Guide. Look how your bathroom cleaners rate.
Are you satisfied with the grades? Great. Your challenge is over.
Are you surprised and disappointed with the grades? Your work is cut out for you. You can look for safer options, and start shopping. (If you’d rather not go on a wild goose chase, Amazon and Vitacost will have plenty of the cleaners.)
Or if the cost of safe cleaners is prohibitive, make your own. For recipe ideas, check out my past posts: Make Your Own Toilet Bowl Cleaner, Make Your Own All-Purpose Cleaner, Make Your Own Countertop Stain Remover, and My Own Spring Cleaning Challenge.
What did you discover as you checked the safety ratings of your cleaning products? If you needed to make a change, what did you decide to try? Please let me know by commenting below. Or, share your experience on Facebook.
