When it comes to all of the hullabaloo about the so-called green movement, you might be thinking to yourself, why bother? You might remember back to the days when you drank water straight from the garden hose or that your parents always used Windex, 409, and Liquid Plumbr and you never had a problem. Well, the simplest reason to go green is because you can. There are plenty of green products on the market today. To dig a little deeper, you also save money, improve the air quality of your home, and do good for the environment. With all of that said, here are six green products to consider for your household.
1. CFL Bulbs
CFL bulbs aren’t as expensive as they used to be (they’re now in the $2 range) and they pay for themselves in no time. After that, watch your energy bill go down.
2. Pure Castile Soap
Pure Castile Soap can be diluted and used for a variety of cleaning duties, such as kitchen counters, windows, an all-purpose cleaner, laundry detergent, and dishwasher liquid. It’s all natural and contains no chemicals.
3. White Vinegar
White vinegar when diluted with water can also replace your Windex, eliminating another household chemical.
4. Baking Soda
Baking soda works great on stove top messes and burnt on food on your pots and pans. Pour some baking soda followed by white vinegar down clogged drains and you can toss your Liquid Plumbr.
5. Water Cooler
Rent or purchase a water cooler for your home and you’ll keep landfills from overflowing with plastic water bottles. This idea also saves money.
