Cleaning does not need to involve high-toxic products. Here are some changes you can make to keep your home clean that do not require commercial products that can cause harm to the environment or family members.

Keeping Your Home Clean

Bite the Dust

Old newspapers and magazines gather dust, get rid of them. Leave shoes off indoors. If possible, install a central vacuum system in your home that will remove dust particles that other vacuum cleaners simply recirculate.

Cellulose Sponges

Commercial sponges are made of plastics or polyester that linger in the environment when disposed. Many contain triclosan, which turns into a carcinogen when it interacts with chlorine. Cellulose sponges are biodegradable, naturally absorbent, reusable, and non-toxic.

Let the Air Out

Modern homes are so well insulated that very little air can get in. Keep the windows open and let the old air out and fresh air in. In cold winter months, open all windows and doors wide for five minutes each day. When you do it quickly, the walls and furniture in your home will retain the heat while the air is exchanged.

In the Bedroom

People spend most time at home in the bedroom, so pay particular effort to keeping it clean. If pets are often outdoors, keep them out of the bedrooms.

Top to Bottom

Save floors and carpets for last. Start by cleaning windows, blinds, and shelves and work your way down. Wait a bit for dust to settle before you vacuum.
