Summary. Natural, safe, Earth-friendly cleaners and cleaning supplies are increasingly becoming available in mainstream retail outlets. Because toxic, caustic, and carcinogenic cleaners are considered dangerous, cancer causing, and harmful to the environment, there has been an increased interest in natural alternatives. This page contains a few easy suggestions to make a huge difference.
Borax. The natural occurring mineral Borax is an excellent multipurpose cleaner. The 20MuleTeamLaundry.com website offers a PDF booklet on the many uses of Borax as a cleaner.
Microfiber Cleaning Cloths. Water and a microfiber cleaning cloth is an effective way to clean mirrors, glass, and other smooth surfaces. A spray bottle can be used to lightly mist a surface. A single cloth can be used, or a second for drying.
Mild Dish Soap. Natural dish soaps are now readily available and make an excellent cleaner for general surface cleaning and even for cleaning floors.
Water. Often overlooked, plain water is an excellent cleaner for most situations.
