Paul Fitzy I am always looking for eco friendly solution if there is one. Currently I am living in Manchester and I don't have the time to clean so I hired a lady from Fantastic Cleaners. She said that they are always using eco-friendly detergents and that's why I'm staying with them.

celinedavid For green cleaning, I particularly like these 4 products:

1. Alkaline ionized water. I found this Japan-made alkaline water that gets off grease and odor when you spray it on a surface. It is also able to take stains off furniture and clothing. The product is completely water-based.

2. Essential oils. Cleaning products made of essential oils also work. These are biodegradable and chemical-free. Coconut, lemon, orange, and eucalyptus are popular essential oils for cleaning. These are usually mixed with water for cleaning purposes.

3. UV sterilizer. There’s a brand called UV care that has a sterilizer for surfaces, rooms, and baby bottles. The appliance uses UV light (the same light used to sterilize medical tools) to kill viruses, odor, and bacteria in a surface or a space.

4. Air purifier. This is a great adjust to cleaning with natural products at home. Air Honest says air purifiers filter the air and prevent dust buildup, removes odors, and helps get rid of allergens. To get rid of dust mites, air purifiers with HEPA filter are recommended.

missannienow I use Meyer's Clean Day products. They are plant based, smell divine and clean quite well. I like their Basil fragrance the best. I also use Lysol's hydrogen peroxide All Purpose cleaner. It works like bleach but is safe to use, since it uses H2O2 to clean. I got tired of ruining clothing using bleach products plus I don't think its good to be exposed to the fumes a lot. I do not bother with stuff like vinegar, baking soda, etc. Waste of my precious time plus vinegar smells awful to me. I also like Methods plant based products.

One of my most frustrating things is dealing with those white spots and patches on glass shower doors that come from the hard water in my town. Its almost impossible to remove. One ex customer bought a product that DID remove it although the process was a huge time waster,. I did not write its name down. It was a thick paste that you put on the glass, waited til it dried and then wiped it off. I asked at Lowes and they had no idea what it cold have been. So if anyone out there knows this product, please let me know.

I couldn't agree more. Many people claim to use green products without really knowing much about them. And this stuff can get pretty technical, as in knowing a LOT about various chemicals. I doubt any of you guys have Masters of Chemistry in your resume. I sure don't. What I did was do some research on the products I prefer, to find out if they have had any issues -legally - about claiming their products are green. And they don't. The stuff I use uses essential oils to make the product smell great. My customers - for the most part - do not want their homes to smell like vinegar when I leave. I know vinegar cleans fine but the smell puts many people off, including me.

billymorigan Green cleaning refers to using cleaning methods and products with environmentally friendly ingredients and procedures which are designed to preserve human health and environmental quality.
Also, any tips for this. The website you suggested doesn't work anymore.

oliverbuxten Green cleaning means cleaning should be done in such a way that it doesn't harm environment but it is environment friendly. You need to use those products which are easily soluble and doesn't contain any kind of harmful chemicals.

bloun There is a healthy movement for opting out from cleaning products that pose health and environment risks. Fortunately, there are plenty of natural products and methods that keep a house clean and fresh-smelling without the toxic side effects.

Yes I love to use green cleaning whenever I can. Clients love it and so does my pocket lol. Basically if you have alot of vinegar and baking soda you can clean almost all of a typical home. I keep a steady supply of both.

Green cleaning and tips!

I think that green cleaning is very effective and helps in saving money. Nowadays many people are going for green cleaning as it does not contain any harmful chemical which are dangerous for cleaning and for our health.
