How I Clean NATURALLY

I named this post HOW I CLEAN NATURALLY because I have NEVER bought  a Fantastic, a 409, a Pine Sol,  a Lysol, Clorox Wipes, etc.  I have never used a toxic cleaner since being married!!

I clean differently than most people.

I only clean with ALL natural products.

I did this even before it was  cool to be green! 

At first, my only reason to do this was because it was cheaper.
I used and still use Shaklee Get Clean products.  Now, after being more educated on why it is so important to be toxic free,  I am really glad that I have been using these the whole time!!!  Toxins are dangerous, as in hurtful, as in not very clean at all.
When most people think of green cleaners, they think: expensive or lack of quality.  With the Get Clean products that I found, nothing is further from the truth!

These are CHEAP!!!!  And they WORK!!!! 

Let me tell you what I use and how!

Kitchen

Let’s begin with with the  Kitchen because we spend most of out time in there!  I feel like I am in there all day!  As soon as I am done cleaning up a meal, it’s snack time!  Does that happen to anyone else?  I run my dishwasher everyday and I always  try to wipe the stainless steal appliances down every night.   I HATE going to bed with a messy kitchen!!!  I love waking up and coming down to a clean room.  I am in a better mood when there are no dishes out, the stove is clean and their are no fingerprints on the fridge!  I also like to sweep or vacuum the floor everyday (several times a day under their high chairs).
In the kitchen I use…..
Basic H2 Organic Super Clean Concentrate and my super microfiber cleaning cloth for the appliances, cabinets, counters and walls
 Scour Off Heavy Duty Paste  for my sink and my appliance deep cleaning.
 Basic G- Concentrated Germicide for disinfecting my sink, counters, knobs, floor and whatever else I want germ FREE!
 Dish Wash Concentrate for washing pots, pans or anything else by hand.  I only use 1 drop per dish!  This stuff is really powerful!!!!
 Dish Wash Automatic Concentrate for my dishwasher.  I only use 1 teaspoon of this stuff and I NEVER pre-rinse  my dishes.  CHEAP!!!!

Bathrooms  

Next,  I’ll tell you about the bathrooms because everyone likes start with the grossest area and get it out of the way.   I use…
Basic H2 Organic Super Clean Concentrate for the windows and mirrors.

This stuff works…..with NO streaks!!!

I mix 2 drops of the concentrate to my 32oz. water spray bottle. (It costs $.02 per 32oz.  That’s right, it costs me only a 2 PENNIES  for a 32oz. bottle)

CHEAP!!!! I told you. 1 bottle of Basic H2equals the cleaning uses of 5,824 bottles of 26 oz. Windex. WOW!!!!

Here is a picture of the awesome window and mirror super microfiber cleaning cloth that I use.

Basic G- Concentrated Germicide for the sink, toilet, floors and bath/shower

I really like to disinfect!!!  I have 3 boys (including my husband) in my house who put their hands everywhere and I don’t want germs everywhere!!!

Scour Off Heavy Duty Paste for the bath/shower, floor and sink when needed.

This stuff takes off rust, mold, hard water residue and other build up.

And it SMELLS like cherries!!! And totally safe!

 

Floors

I try to vacuum or sweep everyday.  I don’t know if it is just my family but we REALLY need to do this everyday!

We get totally dirty here! We have a Roomba for the floors dirt and I use a Shark Steam mop for mopping.

For washing my floors, I use…..guess….. Basic H2 Organic Super Clean Concentrate

This awesome no rinse, no residue, streak-free formula works great on any floor!

It seriously makes my wood shine.   For floors,  mix 1 tablespoon of Basic H + 1 gallon of water.  Apply to floor with sponge or mop.  I just put it in a spray bottle, spray it on the floor and wipe it with my steam cleaner.

 

Dust

Now, how do I dust?  I don’t!  LOL, I wish!  This family makes a lot of dust or at least we see it more because of all of our dark wood  floors and furniture.Usually I dampen my super micro fabric cleaning cloth with my Basic H.  I also use a really long duster to get my fans, vents, light fixtures, stair railing, walls and ceiling.

Laundry

Laundry for 4, plus cloth diapers and mechanic grease is not an easy thing to do!

I have a system that works for now until I can get the kids to do their own.  Right now I put ALL the the dirty laundry  form everyone in our family in my side of our closet.  I have 3 laundry baskets for  whites, lights and darks and 1 basket on my hubby’s side for his work clothes.  I also keep a laundry basket in my laundry room for hand towels, wash cloths, etc.  THEN!! I have a separate dry bag for cloth diaper laundry All of my laundry products are concentrated and NON-Toxic.  It is totally safe for your skin.  It is great for sensitive baby skin and the incredibly sensitive skin of my husband!!

I use…
Fresh Laundry Concentrate  LOVE this stuff!!
Nature Bright  My natural Bleach
