Earth Friendly is the right and only way to go today. While keeping your house squeaky clean is everybody’s goal, it is crucial that the environmental needs are observed in the process and the number one rule is preservation. What good is a beach house if the sea is no longer there? What good is a mansion if your front lawn is a desert? Take your time and think about it.
Lots of house cleaning products are also environmentally friendly (also called “eco-friendly”) are now available thanks to advances in scientific studies. The list of eco-friendly products include the commercial product cleaners you can find at the nearest grocery store or supermarket. So far only a handful of manufacturers are able to come up with eco-friendly cleaning products but as any market analysts will tell you, it’s only a matter of time before the rest of the competition follows suit.
However, keep a wary eye out for those products claiming to be eco-friendly but not living up to the true standards we all believe in. Constant vigilance and research is unfortunately the only way to weed out those companies who are using eco-friendly terms without truely living up to our requirements.

Home-made Household Cleaners
Aside from eco-friendly commercial cleaning products, there are also a number of other cleaning solutions that are just as, if not more, environmentally friendly than those manufactured products. The good thing is they can be found right inside your house. Yes, we’re talking about natural cleaning materials and that includes vinegar, orange rinds, salt, hot water and many other things you find in a regular kitchen.
Let’s discuss by example. Instead of using a chemical solution to clean your dishwasher, you can also use Tang orange juice to do the same thing. Just pour some Tang solution into the dishwasher’s water supply and turn it on. This should leave the compartment squeaky clean and smelling fresh and fruity. The same goes for fruits as deodorizers.
