Weekly Wellness Tip
Going green isn’t that difficult – you can swap toxic cleaners with greener options that you have in your pantry or medicine cabinet:
Vinegar – spray full strength on counters and follow with hydrogen peroxide. Mixed 1:1 with water, it cleans fabric and carpet stains.
Baking Soda – useful against mold and stains.
Hydrogen Peroxide – use full strength in a spray bottle to clean surfaces. Use on colorfast clothing to treat stains.
Borax – a laundry booster, fungicide, herbicide and general household cleaner.
Rubbing Alcohol – use it to clean sinks, stainless, and chrome. Dilute with water to wash windows.
Lemons – rub on surface of your cutting boards and rinse clean. The acidity kills bacteria.
Castile Soap – mild on the skin, can be used as dish detergent, hand soap, and all-purpose cleaner.
Coca Cola – Cleans toilets, rusty parts, and even laundry.
Water – the primary ingredient in most commercial cleaning products. Keep it in a spray bottle to spot clean.
Activated Charcoal – an open container in the refrigerator or on the counter acts as an air freshener. Keep out of reach of children or pets.
