Healthier cleaning products...


A dear lady left a comment on one of the posts yesterday asking for recommendations for safe, non-toxic cleaning products while she is pregnant. PLEASE forgive me, but I do not remember who asked! I cannot find the comment either! Oh dear!!

I did a little research and it all led back to my favorite cleaning ingredients plus a fresh smelling ingredient- vinegar, baking soda and lemons!!!

Here are some sites that give wonderful information about cleaning with these products:

Vinegar Tips

27 Ways to Clean with Baking Soda

3 Homemade Natural Cleaning Products

Vinegar, Baking Soda and Lemon Cleaning Resources

As with anything, please check with your doctor or midwife before using any products while pregnant.

Happy cleaning!!

Thanks for the links, Mrs. U! I've been looking for some less toxic cleansers (though I will say that I do love my Lysol and Fantastik), so these sites will help :)

I clean a lot with vinegar--especially mirrors!! Seems to work much better than Windex, and much cheaper too!!

Blessings,

I LOVE baking soda! It gets baked on food off your stove, pots and pans like a charm. Mix with a little water to make a paste and rub with a wet rag or soft toothbrush! Magic.

I use it in my laundry when washing smelly rags or kitchen towels.

When my son was a baby I loved using vinegar on my floors. I felt that he was much safer crawling around than on floors washed with chemicals.

oooohhh I've got a book she needs to read, it is chalk full of great recipes all of which are non toxic. It is called Better Basics For the Home by Berthhold-Bond...it's a must read.
