Among all the things going green, cleaning is definitely one of the best for you and the environment. There are many green cleaning ideas as well as healthy products that still leave your home looking spick-and-span. If you want to be more green, consider the following tips about how you clean.

Buy environmentally-friendly cleaners. Most cleaning solutions are petroleum-based. Instead buy products made from renewable, non-toxic resources. Birch bark or palm kernel oil are just a couple of natural resources that are commonly found in environmentally-friendly cleaners. You can find products that are pH-neutral as well as scented or fragrance free. You can be assured that these products are non-toxic and wont damage your home.

Improve the air in your home. The fact that many cleaners have warnings about skin contact is a testament to the potency of many of the chemicals you are letting into your air. Besides chemicals, you also have to consider the pollen, dust, dust mites and more that are part of your home environment. Spraying cans of air freshener simply adds to the chemical problem. A good solution is to use natural air sprays or boil a pot of cinnamon or herbs to spread a healthy, fresh aroma. Baking soda is a very good option. Sprinkle it on carpet as you vacuum to create a very fresh, crisp smell. For filtering your air, consider growing a broad green leaf plant or Peace Lilies indoors.

Keep your floor clean and the toxins out. It's a real chore to keep floors clean and spotless. You may not even realize the number of chemicals and unhealthy substances that can be tracked into a home. Sturdy doormats can help scrub away the worst offenders. Having a no-shoe indoor policy is a good way to help the situation.

There are a number of other cleaning tips that are both eco-friendly and you-friendly. Using soap and water rather than antibacterial cleaners is one way to stay healthy. There is an abundance of eco-friendly information out there if you want to learn and do more.

By taking a few simple steps you can begin to live a greener lifestyle. It's up to you how green to make it. Green cleaning simply means using more of what nature has to offer to clean your home rather than harsh synthetic chemicals. It's easy to start being better to yourself, your home and the environment.
