Go healthy and green with natural alternatives to chemical-laden cleansers and soaps.
Spring is here — the perfect time to open those doors and windows to refresh your home after the long winter months. And, of course, deep clean.
However, many common household cleaners contain chemicals that may be harmful to your health and the environment. In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency ranks indoor air pollution among the top environmental dangers, and much of this pollution comes from common cleaning products. The good news is that there are natural alternatives that will leave your house fresh and clean — without the harmful side effects. And you most likely already have many of the ingredients on-hand!
