DIY Natural Household Cleaners (Video)
Create and stock up on all-natural household cleaners like vinegar, baking soda and castile soap to avoid volatile organic compounds in your home.
By Jessica Kellner
There are many reasons why you should clean your home with all-natural products, the No. 1 reason being that the air inside your home is more polluted than outdoor air, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. This is thanks in part to volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are found in many chemical-laden cleaning products. Studies show that VOCS can lead to an increase in breathing problems, asthma-related problems and even cancer. Stock up on homemade cleaners—it’s fun, safe and effective! These versatile cleaners include vinegar, baking soda, salt, lemons, washing soda, castile soap and essential oils. Use them to clean surfaces, scrub grimy pots and pans, keep windows streak-free and disinfectant your home.
