<p>At the <a href=”http://www.lohas.com/” target=”_blank”>Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability</a> conference last year, <a href=”http://www.simransethi.com/info.html” target=”_blank”>Simran Sethi</a>, 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.</p>
<p>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 <a href=”https://www.motherearthliving.com/health/natural-healing-herbal-house-keeping.aspx?page=2″>all-purpose cleaner</a> is eco-friendly and only takes five minutes to make.  </p>
