I know I'm behind the times a bit on this, but I'm finally putting to rest the harmful chemicals that I've grown so fond of cleaning with. No more bleach, lysol, scrubbing bubbles, windex, pine sol or....I can't believe I'm about to say this....cleanser. I have five animals - three cats and two dogs - so I've been reluctant to switch to green cleaning products because I relied on the overwhelming swimming pool scent to cover the unwanted scents - and I thought green products just wouldn't cut it. This past Wednesday, however, I became a believer. If Michael hadn't stopped me, I would've wiped down every single wall in my house. I found joy in the household activity I typically loathe with a passion. When I bought it, I thought it was a splurge because of how expensive it was. But it's ultra concentrated and you only use 1⁄4 cup per gallon. My eyes weren't burning, my hands didn't feel like I had just dipped them in acid, and I didn't bleach my favorite pair of sweatpants. My house smelled like the crisp clean log cabin in the snowy hills of Vermont I wish I had. And of all the concoctions I've developed to get rid of animal smell, this worked the best! I used a 1⁄4 cup of Meyer's clean day, a couple splashes of vinegar (a natural disinfectant) and a 1⁄4 cup of natural pet enzyme cleaner. Voila!
