Abstract (Document Summary)

LaGoy said if you want to make your own cleaning products, you'll need vinegar, baking soda, lemon juice, washing soda (Borax), olive oil and hydrogen peroxide. If you are thinking of switching to more natural products, the Environmental Protection Agency says to look on product labels for these factors: >> Minimizes exposure to concentrates >> No ozone depleting substances >> Recyclable packaging >> Recycled-content in packaging >> Reduced bioconcentration factor >> Reduced flammability >> Reduced or no added dyes, except when added for safety purposes >> Reduced or no added fragrances >> Reduced or no skin irritants >> Reduced or no volatile organic compounds >> Reduced packaging When you're ready to clean, LaGoy advised you get rid of clutter first, as that will kick up dust, and do the cleaning in stages over a few weeks' time.
