Spring cleaning – do you love it or hate it? I love opening up the windows and letting the warm fresh air in, after a long winter of being cooped up inside. Spring cleaning (or any cleaning for that matter) doesn’t have to mean filling your home with harsh, toxic chemicals. You can breathe easy – this is the ultimate guide to your all-natural and non-toxic spring cleaning.
Living a healthy lifestyle isn’t just about the food you put inside your body; it is also about the items that surround your environment. Some of the most toxic things in our home are household cleaners. They are filled with chemicals that are harmful to our bodies – phthalates, perchloroethylene, triclosan, and 2-Butoxyethanol are just a few that are found in fragrance cleaners, spot cleaners, dishwashing soap, and fabric softeners.
According to the Environmental Working Group, mainstream cleaning products contain fumes and ingredients which can lead to asthma, cancer, and other ailments. If you can’t pronounce it, should you be putting it in your environment? Even those “green” household cleaners you pick up from your local store aren’t always what they seem. They sometimes contain harmful chemicals within their ingredients list but are labeled to make you feel as though they are safer. There are products out there that are safer for you, your loved ones, and your home. But are any of them 100% all-natural, organic, gluten-free, cruelty-free, sulfate-free, paraben-free…?
The short answer: No.
That is why I created Green Your Clean: Simple & All-Natural DIYs to Clean Your Home – FREE for you. I’ve transformed my family’s lifestyle into clean living – from what they put in and on their bodies to their environment around them.

Hi, Holly. Thank you for much for this information. After my open heart surgery last August, I got rid of all my toxic fume cleaners and went “natural”. I feel so much better about cleaning now. I, too, have entered that “toxic cloud” after having the house cleaned! However, I do worry if germs are being eradicated (especially in the bathroom!). What is your recommendation for this area? Especially in this cold and flu season. Rosie
Hi Rosie – Isn’t it such a great feeling to know that your home is more natural? According to what I’ve learned from the Essential Oils, a mix of lemon and tea tree oil along with some vinegar should help with cleaning during cold and flu season. Thanks so much for stopping by to say hello! Hugs, Holly
