Nothing feels as comforting and welcoming as a tidy, well-tended home. But a clean home isn’t necessarily a healthy one. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency notes that conventional cleaning products make a significant contribution to indoor air pollution. Clean your house from top to bottom with just seven simple ingredients: baking soda, distilled white vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, salt, vegetable oil soap, washing soda and lemons. To save time and money, buy the ingredients in bulk and make your cleaners in advance.
