Green Cleaning Products vs Traditional Cleaning Products

13 Apr 2019 12:18 PM | Rosario Samanamud

It's no secret that conventional cleaning products such as Mr.Clean, Lysol, and Formula 409 multi-purpose cleaners, among others, pack a chemical punch.

Products like these contain ammonia, bleach, chlorine, and other toxics known to wreck havoc on human health and the environment as they release high levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) known to pollute the airways in your home or commercial facility.

But is there a safer alternative to these products? Can we still get the job done without compromising so much? Sure we can!

Green cleaners clean just as good-if not better-and you can make them yourself! Yes, you heard right! Mixing lemon and vinegar, for example, make for a great multi-purpose cleaner that can easily clean a sticky mess, leaving a fresh odor behind.

Another option is to use plant-based cleaners from eco-friendly brands like Method, Mrs. Meyer's, and Better Life.

Either way, natural is the way to go! Help yourself by finding a green cleaning service provider in IJCSA's Green Cleaning Directory:
