Cleaning products have been a big concern of mine for many years now, even before we had our oldest child. We used Melaleuca for years, but I finally let my membership go. After we ran out of a few Melaleuca items we had used for years, I had to begin searching for other, even better, options. That's where I am now.
For all purpose/glass cleaner, we currently use Clorox Greenworks, and it is good, but not the best. It is easy to find, inexpensive, and better than traditional cleaning products. I would like to switch to a cleaner even better than this, but want to research what is out there and the cost before I make any decisions. Here's a review I found about Clorox Green Works.
I am considering:
For laundry, we went back to All, or Tide when I got on my CVS kick. For years we had used the Melaleuca detergent. We only have 2 bottles of All left, so it's time to make a decision. I also know that dryer sheets are full of chemicals but I LOVE dryer sheets, so I have to find an alternative. We are on our last box of Bounce...
In the running:
For toilets, we still use Lysol, I hope to find something that actually works well, but isn't Lysol.
For hard floors, we got rid of all chemical cleaners and went straight for the steam method and have LOVED it!! We bought the Shark Steam Mop and LOVE IT!!!
For wood, we still have our Melaleuca stuff, but it is almost gone, so I need to find a good replacement to polish our wood furniture.
I am also looking into natural, home made ideas for cleaning, but am just not sure it is for us. We'll see!
