Green cleaning is a great new method of cleaning; you can get all the same results using non-toxic products, with minimal affect on the environment, and more importantly there is no risk of harming yourself or your family. Green cleaning unfortunately isn’t doing as well as it should be and one main reason is because it’s still fairly new and an unknown area, making it hard to know what is a better alternative to the toxic products currently used, and what the best green cleaning products are.

Often the dirtiest place in the kitchen isn’t the worktops or the chopping boards, but the sponges used to “clean” the surfaces. Sponges often are left wet, next to the sink covered in all kinds of germs and dirt. Bacteria thrives in damp locations and as a result can quickly grow to hazardous levels, meaning your sponges need to be chucked far too often if you’re to be safe. One of the best ways to be green is to reduce unnecessary waste; this article will explain methods you can easily use to keep sponges safe and the reduce the need to replace them.
If you have hard floors and are a pet owner or have kids running around, chances are one of your biggest problems is dealing with the constant dirt all over your floors.
