Green Cleaning Health Benefits


Recommended Posts

As green cleaning grows in popularity, a lot of people tend to see the worth of implementing it into their everyday routines. Thanks to research and warning labels we are finally aware of a lot of the dangerous qualities of most conventional chemicals used in cleaning products that are in fact completely pointless if we can use safer alternatives.

Cleaning is one of the more important parts of our daily lives, as it doesn’t really matter how many times we try to clean a home, it will always need more cleaning every week or so. Dust mites can be fought by using regular cleaning as often as possible, as well as the danger of mold spores and mildew which happen to threaten every bathroom and kitchen if it was abandoned for too long. The use of harsh chemicals will have extremely bad effects on not only your local environment, but your health and the surfaces around your home. In many cases such chemicals can cause allergies to flare and may even become a trigger for asthma attacks if you’re not careful. There are plenty of green products capable of getting things done without too much effort involved and by keeping you safe from harm.

A lot of cleaning products will have a negative impact on building occupants, but you can control this by ensuring there are no respiratory irritants, as well as other contaminants which will end up hurting you as well as cleaning your areas. Chemical reactions between certain cleaners can also endanger your life, such as the one between ammonia and bleach, so you would do well to stick to nontoxic solutions that work wonders. If you remove such products from your household you will have a much greater chance of success without the inherent danger you’d need to deal with otherwise. Keeping your home’s air conditioning or ventilation running or opening your windows on a regular basis is another key to keeping your home nice and clean, as well as keeping your air quality great as you go.

If you want to have more practical examples of applications for everyday cleaning, then you can go with the following examples:

  • You can clean windows with a simple mix of water and distilled white vinegar. They will work flawlessly for this purpose, easily working the same way as any other window cleaning product without the need for any chemicals and possible toxicity. You can also work with rubbing alcohol to do the same, as it can also break down fat from fingerprints and more.

  • Lemon juice and olive oil can really get things going in terms of furniture polish, as they will really help without the toxicity involved in most other cases. They can help your furniture shine, but it will also leave a pleasant scent of lemony freshness when you’re done.

  • Flour, salt and vinegar can be excellent metal cleaners with a good bit of success without any toxicity and heady smells. You can mix them together in a paste, covering the area in need of cleaning. Let it dry and then buff it with a soft, clean cloth and you will have excellent results. You can clean copper and brass with a simple slice of lemon, as the acid in it will break down patina and return the shine to your metal objects.
