Green Cleaning Products

Reading Superbaby by Dr. Jenn Berman made me want to switch out the conventional cleaning products I use for more environmentally-friendly products. Bottom line: cleaning products leave behind residues on surfaces... surfaces that come in direct contact with our babies and their little mouth-stuffing hands. Have you ever inhaled any of that stuff? Of course you have. It's hard not to. If it makes my lungs feel yucky and gives me a headache, I can only imagine the effect it has on my little ones.

My problem with the green products? The smell. They smell... um, organic, if you know what I mean. Any personal favorites that smell pleasant?

And, yes, I know I could be making my own out of vinegar, baking soda, lemon juice, etc. That's over my line. If it's within your line, I commend you, but can. not. do. it.

  1. I am just getting caught up... we use Planet multipurpose surface cleaner. It doesn't smell horrible. I also use straight cider vinegar with a bit of water to clean the kitchen floor. It works like a charm and leaves the house smelling like... apple cider.

  2. Mrs. Meyers smells great. Method smells good too. I use Dr Bronner's peppermint soap and water to clean a lot of stuff too, smells clean and is non-toxic.
