The benefits of using Eco-friendly cleaning products
Many people are waking up to the fact that there is really no need to use harsh chemicals when cleaning. Think of it as protecting your health, the health of those around you, and the environment.
The use of regular cleaning products can often contain harmful ingredients and over time can cause health issues in humans such as respiratory problems skin irritation and allergies after prolonged use. Some chemicals require the use of gloves, which can only mean that these chemicals can cause damage to your skin.
The use of eco-friendly cleaning chemicals is much safer for the environment because they do not contain any harmful or toxic ingredients as regular cleaning chemicals do. Because eco-friendly cleaners contain no harmful products, it makes it safe to dispose of and can also reduce water, air and soil pollution.
In the home, your children and pets are exposed to the use of cleaning chemicals. When using regular cleaning chemicals, often surfaces are left with a residue that can cause irritation or respiratory problems. The use of eco-friendly cleaning products greatly reduces the risk of this exposure because they do not contain harmful ingredients.

We use a lot of citric acid. Citric acid is a weak organic acid found in citrus fruits. It is a natural preservative and is also used to add an acidic (sour) taste to foods and soft drinks. It occurs in the metabolism of almost all living things. Because citric acid kills bacteria, mould and mildew, its great for general disinfecting and cleaning. Its also effective at removing soap scum, hard water stains, calcium deposits, limescale and rust. Citric acid is great at cleaning loos and is a great alternative to bleach.
Your Grandma used it and so did her Grandma. Now its time for you to discover one of the most effective cleaning staples around, Vinegar. From shower-heads to soapy heads, copper to microwaves, vinegar (especially distilled white vinegar) is a versatile, environmentally safe alternative and its inexpensive too. We use it mostly to clean glass and to buff up chrome surfaces. It can also be used to prevent soap scum buildup on shower screens.
Bicarbonate of Soda
It's extremely versatile and can be used as a mild abrasive, scouring agent and deodoriser to dissolve dirt, tackle odors and cut through grime. It can be used in place of cream cleaner. Using a sprinkle of bicarbonate of soda on a sponge to clean any surface you would usually use a cream cleaner on. It will work just as well to remove dirt and grime. It won't leave you with that harsh chemical smell either.
