Making your home efficient and eco-friendly, or “going green”, is becoming very popular. It’s not only good for the environment; it’s good for your pocketbook. Energy saving products means less money spent on bills and can also mean a tax break.
But not everybody can buy those new windows or high-efficiency dryers right now. Start small with green cleaning. Most people think of a green home as being an energy efficient, high tech house; but really, the products you use in your home can also make it green.
There a lot of green cleaning products on the market. Many green cleaning products are multi-purpose, so you can stop buying a cleaner for every room of the house and stick with one bottle.
Good Housekeeping ranked the following products as the best for green cleaning:
• Dish detergent: Planet Ultra Dishwashing Liquid.
• All-purpose cleaner: Sun & Earth all-purpose.
• Super strength: Simple Green all-purpose cleaner.
• Laundry stain detergent: Arm & Hammer Essentials 2x Concentrated.
You can also try making your own non-toxic cleaners by using these recipes.
