Spring Cleaning: Kid Safe Cleaning Products
Children ages one to three accounted for about 72 percent of these occurrences. If you choose to use common cleaning products around your house, always keep them locked away and out of reach of children. When you get your children in on the cleaning act, you can avoid the chemicals by preparing your own homemade cleaning concoctions, which are guaranteed to be chemical free. For windows, combine three tablespoons of vinegar and two cups of water in a spray bottle. For a stronger combination, reduce water and increase vinegar content. Another alternative to glass cleaners is a mixture of club soda and lemon juice to remove dirt and grime. All-purpose scrub is another quick and easy fix. Combine two cups of baking soda with 1/2 cup liquid castile soap. Add four tablespoons of vegetable glycerin. For toilet cleaning, pour baking soda in and top with vinegar. Set for 39 minutes. Scrub with a toilet brush.
