This title features traditional methods for the eco-friendly household. It is a practical guide to cleaning with eco-friendly, natural products, featuring ideas for inside and outside the home and personal use. It features the five natural cleaners that no home should be without: White vinegar, a mild acidic product that won't destroy surfaces; Bicarbonate of Soda (Baking Soda), a natural abrasive; Lemon Juice, nature's bleach and disinfectant; Tea Tree Oil, an antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal essential; and, Borax, a natural laundry additive and booster.
When it comes to cleaning, less is more, and cleaning without toxic chemicals is known as 'green' cleaning. This is just a new name for an old way of cleaning and often uses items that are already on your kitchen shelves. Many of these cleaning tips may have been handed down from your grandmother, or even your great-grandmother, and used over the years to get rid of that stubborn stain or nasty smell, bring a sparkle to dull silverware or refresh stale carpets.
Packed full of information and brilliant ideas this practical handbook will make you think about what you put on surfaces in your home, what you breathe and what you touch.
