You understand how important it is to choose safer cleaners to use around the home. You love the idea of using effective cleaners that get the job done without any dangerous fumes or harmful chemicals. The question is where do you find these miracle cleaners? The answer is easy: they are available in your local grocery store.
Polish the Wood
When you want your wood products to shine, you probably reach for spray-on waxes in a can. However, it’s time to go old school and reach for something that’s been around for generations. Beeswax mixed with citrus oils and other natural elements will make even your dry, tired furniture look like new. Rubbed into the wood and allowed to soak in, the beeswax is then rubbed off and buffed to a beautiful shine. It’s safe for use on your wood furniture, and it will even leave your hands feeling soft and smooth.
Quick Wood Cleanups
It’s worth the time to polish your furniture with beeswax, but that can take a while. When you don’t have time to give your furniture a wax treatment, try using Almond cleaner from Method. It comes in a spray bottle, and all you need is a damp rag along with this cleaner. Simply spray it on your furniture and wipe it off. It cleans, polishes and nourishes the wood, and there’s not a single dangerous chemical in the bottle.

When you’re cleaning the kitchen counters, you want something that’s safe and removes germs. Pick up a bottle of Seventh Generation Multi-Surface Cleaner. It kills 99.9 percent of germs using safe botanicals that are safe for your family even though they’re deadly for kitchen germs.
Another great choice for scrubbing the kitchen surfaces is Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day. Based on aromatherapy, these products are free of ammonia, chlorine, bleach, parabens and phosphates. In addition to being safe for use, they also smell wonderful, and they are never tested on animals.

Green Works offers a bathroom cleaner that impressed consumers with its cleaning power and delighted everyone with its fresh scents.
