There are so many reasons to stop using harsh, toxic chemicals to clean your home. They are not only harmful to our bodies, the air quality but also the environment. We know what you’re probably thinking: “Green products? Do they actually work?” We guarantee THEY DO! The Green movement has come leaps in the last decade in regards to cleaning solution effectiveness. Whatever your reason for using non-toxic cleaning products, there are now more products than ever to choose from. Here are some of our favorites. All of these products are affordable and readily available.

Reasons to Choose Green Cleaning Products
- Biodegradable: Whatever you put down the drain or flush down the toilet, works its way to our waterways. From the seemingly innocuous sodium lauryl sulfate (which is toxic to aquatic life) to phthalates (which have been linked to reproductive health issues in animals), many common cleaning chemicals are known to cause environmental damage.
- Allergies: Many of the mainstream, chemical based cleaners contain ingredients that can trigger allergies, including perfumes & synthetic fragrances, ammonia, soy, gluten, formaldehyde, chlorine, bleach, dyes, and sulfates.
- Cruelty Free: Most natural cleaning companies strive to create sustainable, eco friendly cleaners and have taken a stand against animal testing.
- And most importantly: Protecting our loved ones from caustic chemicals, in the air and on our skin.
Perhaps the easiest way to ensure that you know what’s in your cleaning products is to make them yourself. We have found that the best natural cleaning products are regular white vinegar and baking soda. You can also add a squeeze of lemon or orange for a fresh natural scent. Making your own natural cleaning products is not difficult at all. For those stubborn shower doors we recommend white vinegar, baking soda and nontoxic dish soap.
We at Abby are proud to support the eco-conscious movement by only using products that are, not only environmentally safe and sustainable, but most importantly, non-toxic to you and your home.
