As the last lingering summer weather fades away, It’s time to start preparing for the fall. And what better way to welcome the new season than with a good fall housecleaning?
Unfortunately, the products that provide that invigorating smell and streak-free shine may not seem quite so clean when you look at the results in a larger context.
The fact is, many popular cleaning products are in fact ?dirty?; they release fumes, pollute the air, and coat surfaces with a toxic residue. Worse, the chemicals they contain may remain in the earth’s waterways, affecting whole ecosystems.
But National Geographic‘s Green Guide blog’s green cleaning resource pages can help you choose (or even make!) cleaning products that are safer for you, your family, your pets, and the environment. To green your fall cleaning, be sure to check out the main cleaning page and the product buying guide.
