There is a revolution going on in America-a green revolution. From organic foods to recycling, millions of families have adopted safer, better, and more responsible ways to live. The latest front in this revolution is the home itself, as households across the country adopt ways to keep their homes clean and healthy-and ways to do it that are environmentally sane. Green cleaning products are "going mainstream," the washington post says, and sales of natural household products have surged by some twenty percent a year for the past five years. GREEN CLEAN is the definitive, step-by-step guide to cleaning better while using natural, safe products. A friendly, accessible introduction explains what green cleaning is, how it can work for your home, and why it's important. Room by room and stain by stain, GREEN CLEAN offers non-carcinogenic strategies for cleaning deeply and more efficiently. GREEN CLEAN breaks environmentally conscious cleaning into simple principles and easily mastered routines, with beginner, expert, and advanced techniques that let readers set their own goals and develop their own cleaning plan. Spot illustrations enliven each chapter, showing time-saving techniques, products, and equipment. Room-by-room chapters teach how to make spotless everyplace from under the kitchen sink to the shower curtain and windows. Also included are recipes for safe, simple, and economic cleaning solutions and the lowdown on the best eco-friendly cleaning products on the market today.

WHY YOU SHOULD GREEN CLEAN? AMAZING ADDED VALUE TO YOUR CLEANING EXPERIENCE Nothing is more important to this planet than finding alternatives to chemicals and practices that are harming it. Sometimes it is helpful to think of the earth as a living cell, one that we are living on. Once the cell dies, what do you think will happen to the other things inhabiting it? Not a pretty picture. Being environmental isn't just good for humanity at large, but it's great for the animals, our health, and sometimes even more importantly, our budgets. Discovering new ways to clean the house may even eliminate allergens that you didn't know your body was reacting to. For example, if you switch from a chemical based spray to aromatic oils to keep your home smelling fresh, you may stop sneezing on a regular basis. It can really work! Even if you're not outwardly allergic to chemicals, using big brand cleaners is a seriously unhealthy choice. Even if it doesn't look like your health is suffering, the way your cells are changed because of chemical interference is something that hasn't been tested sufficiently. Big businesses don't care about our health - they care about the fact that we, as consumers, have a need. If they claim to have a product that will satisfy that need, then they will make money. Consumer health is nothing compared to a paycheck! So if you care about your health, the environment, and your budget, switching to green cleaning products is the choice for you! Using this book, learn all the best ways to clean your house the right way, instead of putting yourself at risk with a chemical cocktail you may never recover from. Let's get started!
