Our clients appreciate our commitment to the environment.

When doing their own cleaning, however, some homeowners still hesitate to make the switch from harsh cleaning chemicals to more natural alternatives. Their reluctance can usually be traced to one of the top 3 green cleaning myths.

Myth #1 – Green Cleaners Won’t Do the Job

Nothing can be further from the truth. Natural and green cleaners will clean your home just as thoroughly. The only thing you won’t get is the harsh smell.

In order to get the best results, you may have to let your natural cleaners sit on the surface for a little while. Once the cleaner penetrates, removing the dirt is a snap.

Myth #2 – Green Cleaners are Much More Expensive.

Another myth is that green cleaners are much more expensive. The green and natural cleaners you can make from commonly available products such as vinegar and baking soda are clearly less expensive than harsh, chemically-based ones.

Commercially available green cleaners are also a great bargain. Since most contain less filler, a little goes a long way.

Myth #3 – Green Cleaners Won’t Kill Germs or Mold

To those who think green cleaners don’t disinfect, here is a list of natural or green cleaning agents that kill bacteria or mold.

  • Basil oil
  • Borax
  • Hot soapy water
  • Hydrogen peroxide
  • Lemon
  • Steam
  • Tea tree Oil
  • White vinegar

Whether you make or buy green and natural cleaners, follow the instructions carefully to get the best results. Your children, your pets, and yes, even your nose will thank you.
