New Breakthrough Guide

How many cleaning products do you have in your home?  Take a minute and count them and include: air fresheners, floor cleaners, dishwashing detergents, fabric softeners, furniture polish, etc.  Surprised? 

But the great thing is that can find out what’s really in them!

This week, the EWG gave a sneak preview of their new Cleaners Hall of Shame database.  From big name brands to local store’ll find out ingredient hazards, risk of exposure, environmental concerns, and more.  

Most of all, you’ll learn about safer alternatives so you can keep your children, your family safe and help the environment at the same time. 

Our Spring Cleaning Challenge is to use only 3 products:  Baking Soda, Vinegar, and a Multi-Use Cleaner.  If you need some ideas about how you can clean everything with these, here's some help!
