Congratulations on being interested enough in your health to research natural cleaners.
Before my first child was born I was introduced to the power of tea tree (an essential oil) as a natural cleaner. And when my Grandma died of cancer 3 years later, I again realized the importance of doing what we can to rid our homes and our diets as much as possible of cancer causing chemicals.
It hasn't been an overnight transformation, but I did begin to investigate how to make your own natural cleaners, and more recently have been enjoying the Young Living brand natural cleaners which are formulated with essential oils and other natural ingredients.
This post will be a great reference for you, and I hope you will bookmark it and refer to it often if you are also interested in trading chemical cleaners for natural cleaners in your home.
