I don’t know about you but I worry more and more about all the nasties in cleaning stuff.
As a mother I always wanted to protect my family, but I hadn’t twigged how complicated that is.
Or got my head round the possible connection between toxins in cleaning products and a whole bunch of chronic conditions from asthma to arthritis.
And even scarier when you discover a fair amount of cleaning stuff claiming to be “natural” is full of the same junk! And you’re paying three times the price for fancy “green” branding.
But the good news is you can clean naturally without toxins really easily.
The absolute easiest way is with microfibre cloths that allow us to clean without toxic chemicals.
Seriously! I couldn’t live without them!
They’ve helped me kick loads of toxins out of house.
AND clean faster!
AND save a heap of money!
If you haven’t tried them do!!
BUT however wonderful microfibre cloths are – AND they are amazing! – you do still need a few cleaning products.
Which is where these super simple natural cleaning recipes come in.
They are incredibly easy and quick, even if you are not remotely into making stuff or DIY. And they all use just a few basic natural – and cheap! – cleaning ingredients.
