There are many benefits for using environmentally friendly cleaning products in our homes. As a new year begins, so do many other things. The most common New Year’s resolutions are related to family time, fitness, weight loss, debt reduction, quit xxxx (you name it) and our health. Key to improving our health is to increase our green cleaning habits including the use of environmentally friendly cleaning products.
Environmentally friendly cleaning products have been around for years – dating back to when our grandmothers used vinegar and baking soda on a regular basis. For many today, we want the health benefits from using environmentally friendly cleaning products, but we do not have either the time or the inclination to be mixing up our own home cleaning products from scratch.
For the health of our families, selecting and using environmentally friendly cleaning products is important, especially for baby safe cleaning, caring for our children, providing a safe environment for our pets and last but certainly not least, keeping a healthy earth.
Indoor air levels of many pollutants may be two to five times, and occasionally, more than 100 times higher than outdoor levels. This problem is exacerbated when we clean in small unventilated spaces such as a windowless bathroom, where levels of cleaning chemicals in the air can be highly concentrated. Indoor air pollutants are of particular concern because most people spend as much as 90 percent of their time indoors. In fact, National Cancer Association released results of a 15 year study concluding that women who work in the home are at a 54 percent higher risk of developing cancer than women who work outside the home.

These are really great tips specially for families who are keen on reducing their carbon foot print. Another great tip for cleaning the air naturally is by placing indoor plants inside the home. These effectively absorb the toxic emitted by building materials and other products like personal hygiene products. Thanks for sharing. Good work, though. Keep it up!

In your article, you stated that indoor air pollutants are of particular concern because most people spend as much as 90 percent of their time indoors and in fact, the National Cancer Association released results of a 15 year study concluding that women who work in the home are at a 54 percent higher risk of developing cancer than women who work outside the home. My wife called me at work this morning because her parents are coming to visit our house this weekend and we need to hire someone to clean our house. I wonder if there are any incentives for companies to use these eco-friendly cleaning products.
