Getting Started is Really Easy
Make a list of what you use to clean everything in your house with.
- What you clean your kitchen with?
- What you clean your floors with?
- What you use to clean your laundry with?
- What you use for fabric softener?
- What you use to clean your car with?
- What do you use to make your house smell good?
Look at the labels:
- Are there cautions or warnings?
- Do the bottles list the ingredients?
- How many do you know to be dangerous?
- How many do you really need?
- How many can clean multiple things?
If you toss any chemicals, make sure to do so properly. Cleaners are considered hazardous household waste and need to be disposed of accordingly check with your local recycling facility to see where to dispose of chemicals in your area. If you have a septic system you don’t want to pour it in your drain it will kill the bacteria that are in your septic system.
