Switch to Green Cleaning Today
Cleaning has a way of making us feel better. It can be hard to get started, but once we’re done, it just seems to lift so much weight off of our shoulders.
That great feeling we get when we take a look at our homes after a hard day of cleaning is worth all of the work.
But there’s a way to upgrade your habits to make that payoff even better.
Here are 6 reasons why you should start cleaning green.
1. It’s Healthier for the Environment
When you choose to clean green, you make a commitment to reduce your use of toxic materials. Conventional cleaning products contain chemicals that can cause harmful runoff and further pollutes our air and water quality.
‘Green’ cleaning products use biodegradable, non-toxic chemicals. As a bonus, they also use recycled paper products. So you won’t just be cleaning up your house – you’ll be taking care of everyone’s home.
2. It’s Healthier for You
Using these products means that you won’t be breathing in harmful chemicals. Think of all of the safety restrictions that come with the products you use.
- ‘Wear rubber gloves.’
- ‘Keep the windows open and the air circulating.’
- ‘If you feel light-headed, immediately go outside for fresh air.’
All of this points to harmful products. Green cleaning products have to meet strict guidelines for toxicity and skin absorption, so you won’t be at risk for chemical poisoning, skin irritations, or eye and respiratory infections.
3. It’s Less Expensive
Another added bonus, it’s easier on the wallet. Green cleaning products are typically priced lower than conventional products because they use fewer ingredients.
In fact, you can make many of these products at home, and you probably already have the ingredients in your kitchen.
Baking soda and vinegar are two popular cleaning agents. So are lemon, olive oil, and citric acids.
And these products are less corrosive, so your belongings last longer, saving you from further expenses.
4. They Smell Better
How do you feel about the smell of bleach and ammonia? If you’re not a fan, then green cleaning products are a good idea for you.
Many of them incorporate essential oils to sweeten up the smell of their natural products, so your house will smell like lavender or lemon, and not the harsh chemicals you use to scrub the floor.
5. They’re Easier to Use
As I said before, you don’t have to go searching for the rubber gloves and safety goggles to use these products. But they’re also general cleaners, so you don’t need an entire array of cleaning agents to get your house in tip-top shape.
You also don’t have to worry about bleach stains or accidentally mixing toxic chemicals. You get to just clean your house without having to worry about the health risks.
6. You’ll Know What’s In Your Products
Conventional cleaning companies aren’t required to fully disclose what’s in their products, so the ingredients you see on the back of the bottle aren’t always telling you the full story.
Green cleaning companies practice full transparency. What you see is what you get. So you’ll know what you’re putting into your environment when you pick up one of these products.
