At the Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability conference last year, Simran Sethi, one of the guest speakers, put chemical cleaning products in perspective for me. Sethi basically asked her audience this question: Would you feel comfortable leaving your child alone in a room with toxic household cleaners? Although I’m not a parent, the answer is clearly no. Sethi’s point was that this scenario is the same as using toxic products all around the house.

Since talking to Sethi, I’ve looked at household cleaners in a whole new light and I’ve started making my own as means to replace these toxic chemicals. This simple, herbal all-purpose cleaner is eco-friendly and only takes five minutes to make.

Cleaning all the surface different furniture is very important otherwise some beautiful thing may look bad. If for every type of products you are purchasing different cleaning products then it might not be good also. SO people used to prefer the cleaner liquid that can clean all the products properly. You can divide the liquid in so that you can make a stock with you always.
