~Organic Household Cleaners~

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know where I can buy good organic household cleaners?

Or even some good websites where I can find receipes for "make-it yourself" natural cleaners?!?

I really want to stop using harsh chemical cleaners that you buy in a store. All those chemicals CANNOT be good for you!

Does anyone else use organic household cleaners? Do they work well?

I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for, but here's a link to a site about using vinegar as a cleaner. http://www.superbherbs.net/sec6.htm And you'll see there are many other uses for vinegar as well.

Heloise had a column recently about a good make it yourself cleaner. The ingredients were as follows:

one half cup of white vinegar
one pint rubbing alcohol
one teaspoon dishwashing liquid
water added to make a gallon

You can buy most of this stuff organically and make it on your own.

I googled and found this website: http://earthnotes.tripod.com/clnrecipes.htm

I'm also quite partial to Method products. They aren't organic, but they aren't bad for you. I can use them without gloves and a mask, which is more than I can say about the harse products you get at a grocery store. Target sells Method. If you have a health food store near by check them out. I used to use this orange cleaner that worked really well, which I've found at every health food shop I've been to: http://www.shopnatural.com/Merchant2...duct_Code=8817

Also check out Seventh Generation: http://www.seventhgeneration.com/

They make cleaners, toilet paper, paper towl, maxi pads, you name it.

I've bought natural stuff through coops and heath food stores, but you can also get them through the internet.
I'm a big believer in baking soda as a natural smell reducer.

You have to be REAL careful with cats as they are so senstive and things like Essential Oils are so dangerous. I am trying to learn how to use only Baking soda and vinegar for 2 cleaning things. Here are a couple of links:
