Educate Yourself About Green Cleaning

Here are three of my favorite free resources for information about green cleaning.

Back in April 2009, Real Simple magazine featured an article called Back-to-Basics Cleaning, which ignited my burning desire to learn about green cleaning. The tips featured in that article are generously made available on their website: 66 All-Natural Cleaning Solutions. describes itself as "the largest online community for healthy and green living, human rights, and animal welfare." I love poking around their healthy home section. There are lots of reliable DIY cleaning solutions and recipes.

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) has a great website. One awesome feature is the Guide to Healthy Cleaners. The guide highlights both supersafe and supertoxic products. It also features ratings and reviews more than 2,000 cleaning products with grades A to F based on the safety of their ingredients and the information they disclose about their contents. There's info on how to read and understand labels on cleaning products. Start using it today by searching for your favorite cleaners to how they hold up!
