Eco Friendly Cleaning

Clean up your act with low-VOC cleaning products

When you clean house do you dirty the air? Cleaning the toilet, using dish and laundry detergent, mopping the floors and scrubbing the countertops are necessary chores, but choosing the wrong products can unnecessarily pollute the air.

Many cleaning products release volatile organic compounds (VOCs), a major component in the formation of ozone or smog. In fact, with the exception of getting vehicles off the road, using low- or no-VOC cleaning products can reduce more emissions than any other environmentally sound act.
