Green clean and clean green

Making a positive environmental impact can start with your cleaning products.

In the case of cleaning chemicals do avoid the following:
- petroleum
- phosphates/EDTA
- phtalates
- antibacterial agents
- chlorine bleach

Instead use the following:
- Citrus- and plant-based oils
- Sodium carbonate, sodium bicarbonate, sodium citrate, and sodium silicate
- Enzymes
- Non-chlorine bleach

For more insights and explanations read the UCS Greentips "housecleaning made cleaner".

If you are in luck you will find an ecolabelled cleaning product in your local store.
If not, read the ingredient label very carefully!
If you are not satisfied, ask the manager for better cleaning products.
