There is also a company out there called "Melalauca" They have a lot of natural cleaners that work great. I tried them and loved them. Except for the laundry detergent which I was a little dissapointed in.

I LOVE their detergent. Hmm weird. But I only usually use non scented sensitive skin. Since I've been using them and working with Melaluca my eczema is non existent.

I definitely try to avoid toxins at all cost, I was using Vinigar, Baking soda and things like that. However I found it just didn't seem to work as good as I'd hoped and honesty, it stunk, and made cleaning even more boring. But I was recently introduced to a company that makes a lot of sense to me. It is simply a manufacturing company that competes directly with Procter & Gamble and Johnson & Johnson. The difference is they focus on wellness, and on being healthier, safer and greener. All while competing with Walmart's and Target's prices. Its easy shop from home direct shopping, and saving tons of money over those other companies. In this economy I love that!

instead of using bleach use peroxide, it's cheap and it doesn't smell and it's very safe. You can get it anywhere even in the dollar store.

The best and safest cleaners to use is either vinegar or peroxide. Peroxide can be used to clean carpet stains as well.

If you are looking to use a better economical laundry detergent that you can make yourself (and all the products have been around for 100 years) google homemade laundry detergent but here are the simple ingredients: Fels Naptha Bar Soap, Arm & Hammer Washing Soda (not baking soda), 20 mule team borax and WATER. It's environmentally safe, works in all washers and you can use it to pretreat stains as well. My clothes are clean, smell fresh and I have not bought laundry detergent in over a year. It's pennies per load. Oh and I use the vinegar and water and you can squeeze some lemon juice for cleaning tough things like stove tops with cooked on food, lemon juice works wonders!

Seventh Generation & Method are great line of cleaners. I prefer Seventh Generation ususally because Method tends to have a stronger line of fragrances. You can also stick to vinegar/water to clean and disinfect if you don't want to purchase a product. Use it as a 1/4 ratio. You can also use baking soda for a variety of applications.

I don't know about vinegar or whatever but if you are looking for a totally amazing yet enviromentally/child safe carpet and upholstery cleaner you should check out Spot Shot. That stuff is incredible. Works like a charm and is completely non toxic and safe for everyone. It's great. I love it.
