Top 5 Kitchen Cupboard Ingredients for Non-Toxic Cleaning
Posted By Annie B. Bond On March 6, 2012 @ 3:45 pm In Detox, Green Living, Healthy Home | 15 Comments
Recently I spoke in front of a hall full of pregnant women. What a joy to see all those round bellies, and even more of a pleasure — given that this was a meeting of the Holistic Moms Network  — to know how well-intentioned this group is towards their families’ health and the environment.
I gave them all sorts of tips to detox their homes, hoping to ease their minds about how easy it is to accomplish the task. I also gave them my mainstay list for non-toxic cleaning , the five kitchen cupboard ingredients I believe will clean everything in the home, and I’d like to share it with you as well:
Well, they aren’t all kitchen cupboard ingredients, but they’re all easy enough to come by or make at home. You can find washing soda in the laundry section of most supermarkets, and look for vegetable-oil soap or detergent and the tea tree oil in natural food outlets.
Why do I rely on these ingredients? Because they’re non-toxic and they work!
