Updated on June 19, 2013

The cost of these commercial, chemical-based products can be high -- long term health concerns for the family, and environmental pollution caused by their manufacture and disposal. In the US, for example, 1 in 3 people suffer from allergies, asthma, sinusitis or bronchitis (US National Center for Health Statistics). Treatment for these conditions should include reducing synthetic chemicals in the home environment.If you have borax,baking soda,white vinegar,soap bars,corn starch,lemon and lemon oil,alcohol,washing soda which can safely be used in place of commercial household products.

On a tight budget or just don't like all those toxins they put in all the cleaners. Well i am going to share a few ideas that will be better for you your home and your family.
