Happy Spring! Whether it feels like spring or not, there is a psychological lift to just spotting a crocus or two and knowing that winter is officially over. It may be too early to start gardening, but it’s not too early to start a thorough spring cleaning!
If you don’t already use non-toxic cleaners, now is the time to switch! Indoor air pollution, partially caused by the use of chemical based cleaners, is a much more serious problem than people realize and one of the reasons for increased cases of asthma and allergies among other diseases. Fortunately you can find several brands of non-toxic cleaning supplies at your local grocery store and many of the conventional brands are now making a less toxic product. Be sure to read the ingredients though; some products claim to be “natural” when they really aren’t. Visit Environmental Working Group’s Cleaners database “Hall of Shame”
