8 Eco-Friendly House Cleaning Tips

 

 

These days, there are countless numbers of cleaning products to choose from, ranging from conventional to certified green. However, conventional sprays and liquids are often made with chemicals that are toxic for the environment.

Fortunately, there are more options for green house cleaners beyond just purchasing (often expensive) green cleaning products. By making homemade cleaners with simple kitchen items, it’s possible to be environmentally friendly while cleaning your bedroom and bathroom.

Here are some simple eco-friendly house cleaning tips that will leave your home looking and smelling fresh.

1. Use Baking Soda

If you want to unclog a drain without using a caustic liquid cleaner, try sprinkling some baking soda into the drain and follow with an equal amount of vinegar. The two together will make a foam inside the pipes, both cleaning and clearing out the junk.

You can even use baking soda to mask pet odors that accumulate in your carpet. Start by taking the box and spreading small amounts across your carpet. Let the particles sit for a little while, then simply just vacuum up the baking soda. Your rug will smell fresh and clean!

2. Hang Dry Laundry

Dryers are convenient when clothes need to be dried quickly, however, they are not eco-friendly and consume a lot of electricity. If you really would like to diminish your carbon footprint, simply purchasing environmentally friendly detergent is not enough.

In order to be eco-friendly when drying your laundry, hang dry your clothes instead. If the weather is nice, you can hang the clothes outside on a clothesline. If you’re worried about your clothes fading from the sun or a potential rain shower, try an indoor drying rack.

3. Avoid Paper Towels

If you use paper towels when you’re cleaning your house, they pile up quickly. Besides wasting paper that can’t be recycled, you’re also creating waste that will just go straight to a landfill.

Instead, you can just take an unused old shirt and turn it into a cleaning cloth. Another option is a reusable microfiber cloth, available for purchase at most major retailers. These items can be used again and again without creating more waste.

4. Use Non-Toxic Products

Many regular cleaning products contain toxic substances. If you do need to whip out a bottle to tackle a grimy room, stock your cabinets with products composed of non-toxic ingredients.

Scan labels for phthalates, nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEs), and phosphates. These substances can cause damage to both the human body and the environment. Eco-friendly cleaning products contain biodegradable ingredients, such as saponin or limonene. If you don’t feel like buying new cleaners, you can make your own. Surfaces can be effectively cleaned with a simple vinegar and water solution.

5. Try Oven Liners

Cleaning the oven can be a pain and require a ton of clean products. This can be avoided by using oven liners. These liners are pieces of heatproof plastic that fit on the bottom of your oven, designed to catch grease drops and food bits. They can be made of Teflon or other heatproof materials.

They are easy to insert and remove, and can be scrubbed in the sink – a much easier task than scrubbing an oven. This will cut down your time spent cleaning the oven without requiring the use of extra cleaning products or paper towels.

6. Clean Windows and Mirrors with Vinegar

Rather than using a window cleaner with a questionable chemical composition, mix a solution of one part vinegar, four parts water on your own. This mixture can also be applied to your windows and mirrors with a cloth, leaving them just as clear and clean as a store-bought product.

Lemon juice can be added to the solution, as well as washing soda, for particularly dirty windows and mirrors. Use a microfiber cloth to avoid streak lines.

7. Clean Indoor Air Naturally

There are plenty of chemical air fresheners, but nothing smells quite as good as something natural. Make your home smell like natural greens by storing dried plants in areas with lots of air circulation.

You can place clove and cinnamon branches, or boil the herbs in a pot for instant fragrance. Houseplants are also a great way to make your living space smell clean. Chrysanthemums, spider plants, and certain ferns are known for their air freshening qualities.

8. Conserve Water

It’s easy to use up a ton of water when cleaning, especially if you’re performing other housekeeping tasks, like watering the lawn. The best way to conserve water is by using rainwater. This can be gathered by setting up a rain barrel outside to catch the natural rainfall, which can be scooped out in buckets as necessary.

Another option is using water-efficient cleaning products, such as bio detergents that work at low temperatures. By making these choices regarding water use, you can cut down on your water bill and avoid wasting water.

Kitsap Clean’s February News & Specials

Kitsap Clean’s February News & Specials

Starting in February, we will send a monthly newsletter to all our customers with important information about our cleaning service, including any specials we may be offering for that month, information about our Caring Cleans program and useful cleaning tips and recipes for creating your own green cleaning products at home.

Our January Caring Cleans Recipient

Giving back to our community is an important part of Kitsap Clean’s Business philosophy. Towards this end we have started our “Caring Cleans” program. For each month in 2017 we will supply one Deep Clean package to a member of our community who is in need of this service. This may be due to illness, age or other life circumstances that makes house cleaning difficult. We can provide this service free of charge to anyone living in Kitsap County.

For January we selected Tracy J. from Bremerton as our Caring Clean recipient. Tracy was actually nominated by two people – her husband and a good friend. She is a hard working military wife who has often served as a mentor for other wives in her husband’s division, but recently she has been struggling with cancer as well as dealing with a family tragedy that resulted in the death of her brother and sister.

Anthony, her husband, writes “She does so much for every one that I know and does not ask for anything back from anyone. So much so that she would be really mad at me for entering this. But … I know she would love the help even though she doesn’t ask for it.”  We were very happy to select her as our very first caring cleans recipient for 2017!

We are now accepting nominations for our February caring cleans recipient. If you know of someone who deserves a caring clean, please click the link below and submit a nomination!

Why Choose A Green House Cleaning Company?

Why Choose A Green House Cleaning Company?

Young Woman Cleaning Window with Towel and Spray Detergent ProductGreen house cleaning is important to reducing pollutants in your home. 

Did you know that according to the EPA “Indoor air pollution is among the top five environmental health risks” to your family?

These indoor pollutants come from particulate matter sources such as dust mites, molds, bacteria and viruses, as well as “Gaseous pollutants” found in many commercial cleaning products.

Green cleaning is also important for the environment.

Green cleaning involves not only making sure that the cleaning products used are safe for your health, but that they are safe for the environment as well. For Kitsap Clean, this means that we use cleaning products and equipment that are non-toxic and produced using sustainable methods.

Green cleaning can be more financially sustainable.

Green cleaning does not need to be expensive. Although store bought green cleaners may be more expensive (and possibly less effective) than traditional cleaners, you can save a substantial amount of money by creating your own cleaning solutions at home. And you will have peace of mind knowing exactly what the ingredients are in your cleaning solutions when you make them yourself. You can check out our Pinterest Natural Cleaning Recipe board for some excellent DIY homemade cleaner recipes!

Products We Use

It is very important to us that we only use cleaning products that are safe for you and your family members. Although we make many of our own cleaning products (using ingredients such as vinegar, baking soda and essential oils), we also use a few commercial products as well.

Here are some of the commercial cleaning products we may use to clean your home:

  1. Eco-Orange All Natural Cleaner.  Eco Orange is an all-natural, all-purpose, safe and effective cleaner. It has no dyes, phosphates, butyl, toxins, acids, caustics, bleach, ammonia, or solvents and has never been tested on animals.
  2. Bon Ami Polishing Cleaner. A vegan, plant-based cleaning agent made from coconut and corn oils, feldspar, limestone, soda ash and a touch of baking soda. Is hypoallergenic and uses no chlorine, perfume, or die.
  3. Ecover Cleaners. We use their toilet bowl cleaner made from plant and mineral based ingredients, including pine essential oil. Ecover’s bottles are also made from 100% plant plastic and are 100% recyclable. Their products are safe for septic systems and never tested on animals.
  4. Earth Friendly Products. We use their furniture polish made with essential oils of olives and oranges. Their cleaning products are ammonia-free, phosphate-free, chlorine-free, glycol and glycol ether-free, enzyme-free, dye-free, and free of petroleum ingredients. Also, they are never tested on animals.

In addition, we use natural sponges, pumice stones and a cloth based mop system for our cleaning. We also use HEPA filtered vacuum cleaners to help reduce any allergens you may have in your home.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the products we will be using in your home.
