Today Summer, our green writer here at Mom Start, has some great product recommendations for your holiday cleaning!
If you’re planning for guests this season then you’re probably thinking about all the cleaning you have to get done. Now’s the time to start! I love to use Seventh Generation’s products and on their site you can find coupons to clean up your house and bonuses for things like eco-friendly diapers and paper products. I really like the Seventh Generation All Purpose Cleaner. If you’re wonder how green these products really are then you can go on the Seventh Generation site to see all the features and benefits of their products such as non-toxic and biodegradable.
I also love to use Simple Green which I can find at Costco in a concentrated bottle. I get to choose how I mix it for either heavy cleaning or everyday use in multipurpose cleaning.
My all-time favorite natural and expensive cleaner is vinegar. You can use vinegar anywhere and many cleaners are beginning to advertise they include vinegar in their product. You don’t have to settle for vinegar added though … you can make your own cleaner using vinegar and 1001 Uses for White Distilled Vinegar is your site! They have all the tips you need to use vinegar as a cleaner – around the house, in the laundry, garden, and car – as well as other uses from health to pets and of course cooking. I have used a solution in a spray bottle of 1 cup vinegar to 1 gallon of water to clean around my house. Using the vinegar tips will help you clean anything! And if you know a trick or tip and don’t see it on the site you can click and send it in to 1001 Uses for White Distilled Vinegar.
Remember, Summer has no affiliation with any of these brands, she really likes to use them! I had to go and check out Simple Green because I thought it was just a brand name, I had no idea that they consider themselves the first “green” cleaner. Ha, I’m so out of touch with being green and eco friendly, I’m so thankful for Summer to share all of these tricks and tips with us. Here is more about Simple Green. Simple Green even has a naturals, line. Simple Green Naturals are 100% naturally derived, with ingredients originating from nature: chicory, coconut, corn, palm, naturally occurring minerals, salt and sugar, and water. Nothing else.
I have worked with Simple Green before in the past, and have to disclose that because it’s my blog. I have never worked with Seventh Generation or represented Vinegar before.
