This is dedicated to Earth day tomorrow...go green!
I have been going green for over 20 years now. When I started having serious health problems many many years ago, I helped my immune system by using almost all natural products or "alternatives". It's helped my health tremendously. It is NOT necessary, for instance, to use any kind of bleach. Use regular brown bottled peroxide. I add it to my natural cleanser to clean and also disinfect. I use this combination to clean my bathroom, kitchen, floors. I also add a bit of peroxide to my "green" laundry detergent, when I do whites, light colors and also my bed sheets and towels. No stain, no color drip. I just throw in a little less than 2 oz. with my laundry detergent. Not much is needed at all. I have never found any reason to have to use any of all those "toxic" cleansers they sell at the store...I have no need to. I save a lot of money this way also. I also use Bon-ami and peroxide to clean the toilet. When people here at my apartment complex see me in the laundry room, using my natural products and peroxide, they ask about what I am doing, so I share with them why. Now I see quite a few people here in the apartment complex with their natural "green" laundry detergent and their peroxide in their laundry baskets. Help protect the earth and save money too!
I also bought a "Quadra" Ionic Breeze air cleaner about 9 years ago. All I have to do is remove the inner core of it and wash and rinse it with a cloth about every month and let it air dry overnight, then slide it back into the outer container. Only cost pennies a day to run. You should see all the "gunk" on it when I pull the inner core of it out. It's filthy! That's got to tell you how much stuff is in the air in your homes. I also almost always have a window open a bit, even when it's cold...indoor air is one of the most toxic there is...so remember to think of what you can do to protect our earth, and yourselvs, in these simple and many other ways. It is possible! I've been "green" so long I have to laugh sometimes when I read about new "recently discovered ideas" for going green, because I have been doing them for so long now that it seems "normal" to me.
Bless Mother Earth and Father Sky...protect the Earth, your families, your children and all of us.
Love and Blessings,
