Green Cleaning - is it right forYOUR home?

There are many reasons to use 'green' cleaning products; they are safer for homes with children, have a lower impact on individuals with asthma or other breathing problems, are safe for septic systems, and are economical.  Green products are more than just those with 'natural' ingredients. Some of the best cleaning products for most common household jobs can be found in your kitchen cabinets!  Vinegar and baking soda are versatile ingredients for both cooking and cleaning.  Consider using non-toxic products whenever possible.  Many common household cleaners contain chemicals (many are 'natural') that are toxic to both the environment and to you and your family (when you pour them down the drain or dispose of them in the trash).
