Green cleaning by More Time for YouAre green cleaning products for you? We have all heard about how green cleaning products can be toxic and dangerous for the environment and our health.  So why haven’t we all made the switch to green home cleaning?  Well, many people feel like a green cleaning product isn’t effective.  Fortunately, that isn’t true.  There are many clean green cleaning products that are very effective.  You can even make effective green cleaners at home.  You don’t need chemicals to get results.  Try making these products at home.


  1. You can clean almost anything by combining equal parts vinegar and water.  If you’d like some extra scent, try adding a few drops of tea tree oil.  It’s a natural antibacterial agent, too.  For just pennies, you have the perfect all-purpose green home cleaning agent.
  2. To clean sinks, toilets, or bathtubs, sprinkle the area with baking soda.  Then spray it with your all-purpose cleaner.  The vinegar will make the baking soda foam up.  Give it a quick scrub, and you’re done.
  3. To make your own green cleaning product for a glass and window cleaner, add a small amount of rubbing alcohol to your mixture of all-purpose cleaner.  The rubbing alcohol prevents spots.
  4. Commercial drain cleaners are horribly toxic.  You can make your own by pouring baking soda down the drain, then adding vinegar.  Let the mixture work its magic for a few minutes, and then flush with water.
  5. Try microfiber cleaning cloths.  There are several brands on the market to choose from, and they clean without using any chemicals at all.  You can pick up a set of microfiber cleaning cloths for use on the kitchen, bathroom, stainless steel, and dusting hard surfaces.

Whether you use a green cleaning business to clean your home or you do your green home cleaning yourself, you can get a clean, safe home without dangerous chemicals.  You probably have the ingredients you need in your kitchen cabinet right now.
