Nontoxic Cleaning Products


Many cleaning products contaminate our water and air, and contain cancer-causing chemicals. If your family has a history of allergies, asthma, sinusitis, and bronchitis, it's especially important to reduce the use of chemical cleaners in the home. Green home products are safer to handle, reduce indoor air pollutants, and do not harm water supplies. The Citra Solv line of cleaners includes effective, green products. They contain no harmful chemicals, and even provide recipes on their labels for easy and inexpensive refills. You can make your own multipurpose cleaning products from white vinegar, baking soda, rubbing alcohol, and lemons to clean almost any area of your home.
