Highly recommended Eco-Friendly products for cleaning

In order to avoid “greenwashed” cleaning products, experts recommended looking for cleaning products with “ecolabel” certifications.

For cleaning products, the EPA runs two ecolabel programs: Safer Choice, for all purpose cleaners like dish soap or laundry detergent and Design for the Environment which certifies antimicrobial products like toilet bowl cleaners or bath tub disinfectants.

When and how to use Disinfectants safely at home

Cleaning your home/office when someone is sick or immunocompromised is important to prevent the spreading of germs. Here are a few tips:

-Clean the surface with soap and water first

-Always read the label of disinfecting products to make sure the products can be used on the type of surface you are disinfecting such as a hard or soft surface

-Leave the disinfectant on the surface long enough to kill germs

-Ensure good ventilation if using products indoor for example, use a fan or open windows to allow fresh air to enter

-Store and use chemicals out of the reach of children and pets.
