Natural, Non-toxic household cleaners

I’ve been on a mission to improve my relationship with Planet Earth over the last several years with reducing my use of all types of products and using more eco-friendly products. I’ve spent a lot of time the last several days researching non-toxic household cleaners and everyone suggests the following list of items that are inexpensive and are usually already present in most households:

baking soda
real lemon juice
castile soap

There are several different recipes for different cleaning needs and locations. I’m going to try them out and then post the recipe and a review of how it works.

I’ve been planning on making soap for quite some time and I’ve come across an easy recipe for olive oil castile soap. I found it at No Impact Man’s blog (added to the right).

I hope to decrease my environmental impact slowly and surely over the next several years. I’ll post my findings and how things are working out
