So, using non-toxic cleaners may not be as important to crafting a home full of peace and joy as developing loving relationships. But for me, it does bring a sense of calm and serenity as I relax, knowing there are fewer toxins flying in the air.
It also brings joy because the kids can help clean without me worrying about the adverse effects of chemicals. Woo hoo for that!
I’ve almost exhausted the topic of natural cleaning on this blog, but I do have a few new things to add today. So hang with me.
Making your own non-toxic cleaners is easy and usually involves vinegar or baking soda, water and a few essential oils.
Here are the posts I have already written on the topic:
Michelle explains why natural cleaners work and provides lots of recipes and how-tos for cleaning everything from the microwave to formica floors.
If you don’t want to make your own cleaners, I highly recommend Shaklee. At the Relevant conference, Rebekah shared a sample with me and I have enjoyed using it on my kitchen counters. I like this cleaner because it is non-toxic and doesn’t have a strong scent. If I were to buy cleaners, I would buy Shaklee. You can learn more about Shaklee cleaners here.
