Besides the natural and cheap stuff called vinegar and baking soda…I prefer these brands of cleaners that are green and powerful: Shaklee Basic H2 because I can use the bottle for an entire year! 2 drops of it into my water bottle is all I need for my window cleaner! Love it! ecoStore USA make a fabulous dish soap that has a million purposes and it does the job when I have greasy dishes! Method dishwashing detergent rocks my world. I love the grapefruit. For my bathroom I’m all about the Shaklee scouring paste. It also rocks to get out tough counter or stain scuffs that came from who knows where. When it is time for cold and flu season I get out the Method Antibac cleaners (love the smell) and the Shaklee Basic G wipes for door knobs and toys. No flu for us {here is hoping}! I skip the dryer sheets and just use vinegar in my washer’s rinse cycle and then there’s no need for dyer sheets! Lemons, water and ice make my garbage disposal like brand new! Digging hydrogen peroxide for blood or coffee stains on white surfaces, ditch the bleach all together! With so many products on the market and so much greenwashing it can be touch to know what is really green or safe to spray in your home. Err on the side of caution and when in doubt don’t buy it and check into the product or brand first if you’re concerned. Come on, how many cleaning products do we really need to clean our home? Wait, how often do you clean your home? Ha! Ha!

If you're a blogger or if you want to fill you kids in on blogging you could read My Mommy is a Blogger. It's on Amazon and has good reviews.
