A cleaner home

Cleaning Your Home Naturally.

Have you ever wondered why it's so difficult to open some of your household cleaners? Growing up, I was always fascinated by the 'skull and crossbones' pictured on some of the bottles my grandmother used to clean the house. At the time I thought it was cool; like it was a secret potion used by pirates or something. I had no idea that in 1829, New York State passed a law requiring manufacturers of poisonous chemicals to place this on their label. The Poison Prevention Packaging Act of 1970 is responsible for the hard to open caps on all the common cleaners made so popular by deep pocketed advertisers. The labels boast 'Spring Fresh Scent', 'Better Dirt Removal' or 'New Improved Formula' but they never mention how unhealthy continued use of some of these products can be for the consumers who use them.

When we drafted our business plan, we decided that we didn't want to expose our customers or their families to all of these toxic chemicals. We also realized that our own health and the health of our employees might be compromised, so we set out to do research on all natural cleaning products. Early on, we were introduced to a company that uses Tea Tree oil as the main component in all of the products that they manufacture. Since then, we've learned so much about essential oils and natural cleaning methods. Let us take you through our journey towards Green Cleaning using all natural cleansers.
