Earth-Friendly, Pet-Friendly Cleaning

Try these recipes for homemade cleaning products that are gentle on your pets, the environment, and your wallet!

The grocery store shelves are loaded with toxic substances claiming to make domestic life easier, but do they really? Most of these cleaning products are just a soup of synthetic detergents that leave residues and attempt to mask odors with overly pungent fake floral or fruity scents. Take a note from your grandmothers book and go back to basics with homemade cleaning supplies. You and your pets can breath easy in your non-toxic home, and as an added bonus, you’ll spend about 1/10th as much on the homemade versions.

Don’t forget to store your creations in recycled bottles to make them even more earth friendly!

    Hi Mendy,
    Dr Bronner’s is a good one that you can find in most natural/health food stores. Really, any natural liquid soap will work, just try to avoid the synthetic detergents.

    Cleaning agents are substances, usually liquids, that are used to remove dirt, including dust, stains, bad smells, and clutter on surfaces. Purposes of cleaning agents include health, beauty, absence of offensive odor, avoidance of shame, and avoidance of spreading of dirt and contaminants to oneself and others. Some cleaning agents can kill bacteria and clean at the same time.^
