Maintaining a clean, orderly home when you have children, pets, and a full-time job can feel like a never-ending war against the clock. There are ways to reduce the time and financial investment in house cleaning without compromising on the end result. Here are 10 simple and innovative home cleaning solutions will help speed up this season’s spring clean and leave your home fresh and clean.
We love our pets, and keeping them safe and healthy is our number one responsibility as a pet owner. There could be hidden danger for your pet in your home, especially in the form of home cleaning products. The EPA estimates that more than 50 percent of indoor pollution is the result of chemical-based household cleaning products, which means there is a risk for exposure to toxins inside your home. Pets are at an even greater risk because they absorb and process chemicals into their bloodstreams at a faster rate.
As you begin spring cleaning this year, pay close attention to the cleaning products you’re using. While they may be effective at removing dirt and grime, they may also put your or your pet at unnecessary risk. Here are some ideas of natural alternatives and pet safe options, and more importantly, a list of products, chemicals, and cleaning materials to avoid.
