It was so frustrating trying to keep clean


But the inevitable always happened……..some wayward stain ruining your chef jacket.


If you read any of my earlier posts you’d realise that I prefer to use cleaning and laundry products that are free of chemicals.


So whenever I get a stain on my jacket, I would pull out my Chemical-Free  Laundry Stain Remover

Way Better Than Bleach!!

Wearing new clothes, with their bright colors and crisp fabrics, is always a thrill. But a few washes later, those clothes can look duller and fuzzier.
Talk about a disappointment. That shirt that was once the star of the show is now a faded, feeble thing in the back of the closet.

Not so with Eco-Friendly  color-safe brighteners. This stuff is way better than bleach.

Now clothes stay looking new longer. That bright red soccer jersey still draws attention. School clothes you bought in September can still look new in April.

You spend less on replacing old, fuzzy clothing, and above all, you have a certain peace of mind knowing you’ve brought no chlorine bleach or other harsh chemicals into your home


Wondering how Eco-Friendly  color-safe brighteners can do all that for you? 

Here’s how:

A TRUE Color-Safe Formula

Even some leading “color-safe” bleaches fade and wear out your clothes.
Not Eco-Friendly  color-safe brighteners . Even after 25 days of soaking in pure Eco-Friendly  color-safe brighteners , this wool sock is still as brilliant as ever. leading brand brighteners faded and deteriorated the sock. Chlorine bleach dissolved the sock completely!

No Chlorine Bleach

It’s a popular way to brighten clothes and keep odors at bay. In fact, almost 250 million gallons of chlorine bleach are sold in the U.S. every year.

But chlorine bleach takes its toll in your home and on your clothes. It eats away at fabric, wearing it out fast. And Poison Control Centers receive more calls about chlorine bleach than about any other household cleaning product.

With no chlorine bleachEco-Friendly  color-safe brighteners  are safer for your home and won’t wear out your clothes.

As Gentle to Clothes as Tap Water

Other laundry brighteners might need to be fairly high alkaline to do their job. Eco-Friendly  color-safe brighteners does not. Its pH-neutral formula is as gentle on clothes as tap water.

More Brightening Power with Less Water

Let the washing machine add the water for you.  Eco-Friendly  color-safe brighteners are usually ultra concentrated—meaning it takes less water to make it and less energy to transport it.

Eco-Friendly  color-safe brighteners Saves You Money

It’s simple—with ultra-concentrated Eco-Friendly  color-safe brighteners, you pay less per load. See for yourself: just ½ fl. oz. of Eco-Friendly  color-safe brighteners  is all you need for each load, and that’s 6-times less than the amount of Clorox® 2 you’d have to pour in.


Each bottle of Eco-Friendly  color-safe brighteners does more loads than an equivalent-sized bottle of Clorox® 2. You can save up to $46 for the same number of loads of laundry, all while keeping your clothes looking like new.

Top 10 Eco-Friendly Ways to Clean the House

By the Care2 staff.

Choosing environmentally friendly cleaning products — and removing toxic ones — goes a long way towards ensuring a home with fresh, clean air. Clean air renews and rejuvenates; it doesn’t pollute our lives or the environment. Living in a less toxic home, removed from neurotoxic chemicals, improves sleep and concentration, makes babies less fussy, and gives a sense of well-being. Your household’s toxic burden on the environment will be significantly reduced by following these steps, and this too can bring peace of mind.

1. LOOK UNDER YOUR KITCHEN SINK: Remove toxic products

WHY: Almost everyone in the world has a cupboard full of poisons under their kitchen sink. Wasp spray, oven cleaner, waxes and polishes—the place is full of chemicals that display the words poison, danger,warning, or caution. Small amounts of the poisons drift from, and leak out of bottles and spray bottles, which then waft around the kitchen. Household poisonings are one of the highest threats to the health of children.

HOW: Place products with signal words in a locked cupboard in storage for your community’s next Household Hazardous Pickup Day (see next tip); replace all hazardous products with safer versions in the future.

HIGHLIGHTS: No chemicals wafting into your household; safer environment for kids.

2. ABOUT HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE PICKUPS: Take toxic products

WHY: Hazardous materials shouldn’t be poured down the drain or thrown away in the trash as they can cause serious pollution problems in the waste stream.

HOW: Call your local recycling center, town or city hall. Most communities have at least one Household Hazardous Waste Pickup Day a year.

HIGHLIGHTS: There will be fewer toxic materials leaching out of landfills, burning in incinerators, and being washed into the waste water stream.

3. REPLACE TOXIC PRODUCTS: Choose non-toxic, biodegradable substitutes

WHY: Help reduce the toxic burden of manufacturing, your home, and the waste stream.

HOW: Read “Signal Words” on labels. The signal words poisondanger,warning, or caution, found on the label of products such as pesticides and cleaning products, are placed there by order of the federal government and are primarily for your production. In some cases these signal words are on the label because of the potential impact the product can have on the environment. Poison/danger denotes a product of most concern, one that is highly toxic, and ingesting small amounts—in some cases a few drops—can be fatal. Warning means moderately toxic, as little as a teaspoonful can be fatal; and caution denotes a product that is less toxic, one in which it would be necessary to ingest between two tablespoons and two cups to be fatal. Corrosive products can damage skin and mucous membranes, and a strong sensitizer is a chemical that can increase allergies.

HIGHLIGHTS: Labels provide information by which you can protect yourself, your family, and the environment.

4. LEARN NON-TOXIC CLEANING BASICS: How to use kitchen cupboard

ingredients

WHY: Save money, protect your health, reduce your use of valuable resources of the earth, avoid petroleum products and other non-renewable resources.

HOW: Learning to clean from scratch—making homemade recipes—can truly work if you take time to understand a bit about the chemistry behind how the materials work. Here are the five ingredients that Annie (the author of Clean & Green among other books, and Care2′s Healthy Living channel producer) finds to be the safest, most effective, and useful for cleaning.

The Five Basics for Non-Toxic Cleaning

Make sure to keep all homemade formulas well-labeled, and out of the reach of children.

Note how to safely reduce four airborne allergens in the home with these simple steps.

HIGHLIGHTS: Establish a safe, cheap and simple lifestyle.

5. OF MOPS, SPONGES, RAGS, AND OTHER ACCESSORIES: Natural, reusable

WHY: Reduce your use of non-renewable resources; avoid products with potentially harmful ingredients such as sponges with antibacterial ingredients; reuse old shirts as rags and more. Use cloth rags instead of paper towels to save trees. Save money!

HOW: Look at your purchase of mops, paper towels, sponges, buckets, vacuums, and more with an eye towards their durability, health and environmental impact. If you must use paper towels buy recycled, unbleached paper.

HIGHLIGHTS: Reusable mops, rags instead of paper, safe sponges, HEPA vacuums all work towards providing your home and environment with fresh, clean air, and reduce your consumption of nonrenewable resources.

6. LEARN ABOUT YOUR WATER: Is it hard or soft?

WHY: With hard water you will most likely need to clean with a detergent instead of a soap to avoid soap scum.

HIGHLIGHTS: Choosing the right product for the right job reduces time and resources.

7. DISINFECTANTS? CHLORINE BLEACH? Look for alternatives

WHY: Just as antibiotics are causing drug resistance, so too are disinfectants. Chlorine bleach can cause cancer causing chemicals to form in the waste water stream. Here is more information about chlorine and the home.

HOW: Make a safer antibacterial spray by using these suggestions. Read here about toxic sponges.Visit your natural food store and ask for their recommended chlorine beach alternative. Seventh Generation and other brands offer alternatives that work.

HIGHLIGHTS: A healthier home and healthier environment.

8. CONSERVE WATER

WHY: Clean water is one of our most precious and diminishing resources and we don’t want to waste it.

HOW: Don’t run the water unless you are using it or catching it in a bucket for use; sweep instead of wet mop when possible; put a tracking matt at the door to collect mud and dust so you will need to wash the floor less; etc. Use common sense.

HIGHLIGHTS: Do your part to preserve the earth’s precious resources.

9. CLEAN INDOOR AIR WITH PLANTS

WHY: Plants have been found to reduce indoor air pollution!

HIGHLIGHTS: Plants clean the air and provide more oxygen too!

10. USE YOUR SENSES: Smell, feel, hear

WHY: If you use your nose you will know when food is rotten, when dog beds need to be cleaned, when toxic chemicals may be leaking from old product bottles, and more. If you use your sense of touch you will know when doorknobs are sticky, the floor needs washing, etc. If you allow your senses to be your guide you will stay on top of cleaning jobs that need to be attended to.

HOW: Listen to what your senses are telling you

An Amazing Difference…..Chemical Free homes

Gasoline that 'cleans'

If you’re anything like me……

you like your home, car and workplace looking and smelling clean!!

Yeah buddy there’s nothing like walking into your house and being greeted with smell of freshness, it’s hard to describe……I think being a chef all these years has made me sensitive to certain smells.

I don’t like using chemicals of any kind in my home and for many years I stuck to using Eco-Friendly products for my cleaning supplies

Recently I had fallen on hard times and found myself visiting the local Dollar Store in search of cleaning products.

These products were cheap and I shudder to think how harsh and dangerous the chemicals are, but I had no choice…..

I didn’t have very much money, I even broke down and bought some bleach, something I haven’t done in years.

After using these products for cleaning and laundry, it was not long before I started getting headaches for no reason, I just shrugged it off saying “it can’t be the chemicals, I’m just tired”

But the headaches continued for a while, and it got to the point were I just decided to go back to my Eco-Friendly products.

These products contains are CHEMICAL FREE CLEANING PRODUCTS, and rely on plant-based cleaning properties and enzymes.

DON’T WORRY I WON’T BORE YOU WITH A GREENPEACE SPEECH!!

But I does make sense to me that, if we don’t need to bring dangerous chemicals into our homes, why on earth do we continue to do it?

There was an AMAZING DIFFERENCE! My house started to smell much cleaner, the headaches are gone, but the biggest difference was my clothes.

Because the laundry cleaner was so concentrated. I was using less of it, and saving money

My clothes smell great and they now have a new clothes look and feel about them, instead of looking old and dingy.

I don’t see my self going back to those dangerous chemicals.

After reading the free E-book “Live Green. Safer for you and Your Family” it just made common sense to shop from home and save 30-40% on safer products.

You’d be nuts not to check out “Live Green. Safer for you and Your Family”  and save money on Eco-Friendly products
