Clean the Green Way!

Post Written by VSA Member - Veg Teen Life


If you want to save the environment and protect your health, you’re going to need green cleaning products. And this list by VSA member, Veg Teen Life, covers all of the best ones!


To stay healthy, we all need to do what we can to protect ourselves. One of the easiest ways to do that is to make sure our surroundings are clean. Whether we’re vegan or someone conscious about the environment, we won’t want to be using toxic bleach or one of those other environment-destroying products.


“Green” cleaning products are formulated to be safer for plants, animals, and humans alike, without polluting waterways, landfills, or the air we breathe.


Here is a list of some of the best green cleaning products on the market (and no, VSA is not getting paid for highlighting these products):

PROTEKT

This is one of my favorite and one of the coolest products on the list! Protekt's cleaning products are made using good bacteria! Instead of using harsh chemicals that are bad for the environment, you are using bacteria that deep cleans and then repopulates surfaces with good bacteria, leaving no room for the bad bacteria.

It’s completely safe to use in homes with dogs and children! Their products are highly-concentrated, which makes them cheaper than their equivalents on the market! They have many helpful products including, an all-purpose cleaner, a home spray, a hand-sanitizing gel, and much more!

TRADITIONAL CLEANING PRODUCTS


They may be called old-fashioned, but what still cleans best, (especially if you use a little muscle power) and cheapest, with little environmental impact, is vinegar, with or without food-grade hydrogen peroxide, and baking soda. Vinegar is especially good for cleaning windows and glass while leaving no residue.


In a spray bottle, dilute the vinegar 50-50 with water. In a separate spray bottle, dilute food-grade hydrogen peroxide 11 to 1 with water (11 parts water, 1 part hydrogen peroxide).


To clean hard surfaces, spray both of them onto the surface and wipe. If the surface needs scrubbing, use a paste of Bon Ami or baking soda. If you want to repopulate the surface with good bacteria, remember to spray it with Protekt.


P.S. Food-grade hydrogen peroxide is not sold in retail stores. You can find it online, so check to make sure that you're buying actual food-grade hydrogen peroxide. And make sure to dilute it! Undiluted food-grade hydrogen peroxide is dangerous and can burn, but diluted properly, it has many helpful household uses.



SOME TIPS FOR STAYING HEALTHY


First of all, wash your hands a lot! Wash thoroughly for about 20 seconds. Wash your hands just before you eat, after you use the bathroom, and after you sneeze or cough.


Open doors using a tissue, paper towel, the body of your shirt/sweater/jacket (not the sleeve! You might wipe your nose on it!), or your foot.


Cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze/cough. Even better, sneeze/cough into a tissue and immediately throw it away.


Clean your surroundings.


If you are sick, stay home. Don’t get other people sick. Give yourself time to recover.


Make these a habit and continue practicing these habits for the rest of your life.


I hope this has helped you stay safe and find great new green cleaning products!
