I considered cleaning naturally, or with eco-friendly products, while pregnant with my son. I read up on how dangerous it can be for people to use the regular products that are found in stores, because they contain many harmful chemicals that do not need to be breathed in, even for short amounts of time. Upon reading that I discovered various ways to clean my home that would be healthy for me to use and also friendly to the environment. It has proven to be a very valuable decision for my family, and finances as well!
Last year, I discovered a great company that sells eco-friendly products for everyday use in your home. From cleaning bathrooms, wood, laundry, and carpet, this company has a product suitable for your cleaning needs, without using harsh chemicals that can be a danger both to the environment and your health.
Melaleuca offers great products at reasonable prices. For cleaning carpet you can use Sol-u-mel, a cleaner that contains 10% pure melaleuca oil. It is a three in one formula that stops stains, freshens, and deodorizes. It does not contain any harmful chemicals like phosphates or bleach. Just apply the product to your carpet and let it sit for a few minutes, and then wipe it away. All ingredients are eco-friendly, and can be used with a myriad of other products that the company sells. The easiest way that I know of is to visit their website at melaleuca.com to order products, and they will be shipped to you. You can even purchase these products at a discount if you choose to refer others to use these products. That is an extra bonus!
For those that seek an even simpler and cheaper way to clean their carpet, try looking around your own home. It’s even better to use natural products that you may already have in your home to clean your carpet. One great way is to use white vinegar. All you need to do is clean as much of the carpet as you can with a wet rag or cloth. Then, quickly pour white vinegar directly on your trouble spots. Allow it to soak for a few minutes, and then rise out with a wet rag. This works phenomenally, and it’s super cheap. You can find white vinegar at any local grocery store. So, it’s easy to use and simple to find.
I prefer using products that I already have in my home, because it’s convenient and natural. No harm done to me or my family. I’m able to serve my family two-fold: clean home and healthy home environment. They do not have to breathe in harmful chemicals, but simply enjoy the smell and sight of a clean home. What could be better than that?
