Green Cleaning Tips for Beginners

natural living for beginners- green cleaning tips

Green cleaning is an important part of natural living.

When we use chemical cleaning products, we introduce more toxins into our homes, which eventually end up in the body (and rather quickly actually. Some sources say it only tales 26 seconds for these chemicals to be found in every organ of the body after use.)

On today’s periscope episode, I shared a few tips on cleaning naturally. The links and information below are tips and tricks I mentioned in the show or ones I wanted to share.

I’ll be back with a new scope tomorrow that will tell you how to get my green cleaning ebook free. Plus, I’ll demonstrate how to make a quick DIY all-purpose cleaning spray.

Watch the scope here; note that it expires after 24 hours; after that, you can see it here.
