Green cleaning is really hard if you don't know what you're doing. In my experience, it includes a lot of testing and tweaking. That's why I started implementing it at home first where I'm able to experiment on a daily basis without worrying that I'm slow or ineffective.

I am always two times in every year hire professional cleaners for carpet cleaning. They are usually use organic natural products according to the carpet situation. Using natural products are very helpful to maintain safe environment.

Using natural products for cleaning is definitely the better choice. For a healthy, easy, inexpensive and eco-friendly natural cleaning, I use ingredients like lemon, olive oil, white vinegar, baking soda and salt.

I just visit your forum and found very innovative ideas and tips are there. In 25 years of experience in commercial office cleaning I would suggest, although there are many chemical products available in the market for cleaning but they are very harmful,therefore,in my opinion you should go for green cleaning as they are safer for both your employees and environment. Among natural cleaners, vinegar is one of the most adaptable and effective.

Hi I just opened up my own business to keep myself employable. I live in an area that people are concerned about the environment and I was wondering if offering "clean & environmentally safe" cleaning products is worth it.

Do they really work well? I know that the shower products don't seem to work well or maybe it's just me. The shower product I use is citric acid based , I got it a Wholefoods, and I choke on the fumes.

I want to position myself as leader in the community for this service. Do you know where I can find a list of green cleaning products that I can use?

Thanks... Any help I can get would be great.
I use a product called Biokleen. you can get it in 5 gallon buckets or gallon size. I prefer it, and my customers say their carpets look better than the s****** steamer cleanings.

Hi, really your tips are quite helpful. I completely agree with you that using natural cleaning products are very helpful. In my opinion you should go for green cleaning as they are safer for both your employees and environment as there are many chemical products available in the market for cleaning but they are very harmful. Non-toxic cleaners are much, much cheaper. Yes, baking soda and lemon are good to use as well.Thanks for sharing important thinks with us.

ALL NATURAL all purpose cleaner

Here's an ALL NATURAL all purpose cleaner that actually works:

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp borax
  • 1/2 tsp washing soda
  • 1 tsp liquid castile soap
  • Essential oils of choice – I use 4 drops lemon, 4 drops lavender, and 10 drops orange
  • Glass spray bottle for storage

How to make it:

  1. Place borax, washing soda, and soap in a spray bottle (preferably glass).
  2. Add 2 cups of warm water. Distilled is best, but any water that has been boiled will work.
  3. Add essential oils of choice.
  4. Cover bottle and shake well. Use as needed. It works well as a bathroom cleaner, floor pre-treater, and kitchen cleaner.
