Keeping Everything Clean.

Springtime is when I think of giving a good cleaning to my body and my house. But stirring up dust can lead to allergic reactions, and when you add in some of the chemicals in many different cleansers, you increase your risk for allergic symptoms by increasing your body's toxic load. One way to get around this is to find cleaners that are both effective and non-toxic.

Quite by accident, I discovered a line of cleaners called Bi-O-Kleen (503-557-0216). I particularly like this company's All Purpose Spray & Wipe Cleaner. It contains grapefruit seed and orange peel extracts and can be used to spot clean laundry, carpets, and upholstery, clean bathrooms and kitchens, mirrors, and just about anything else you can think of. It cut through the baked-on grease on my stove top quickly without any harsh fumes. All its products are non-toxic and deodorizing (and they kill E. coli bacteria) as they clean. On difficult stains in clothes or carpet I've used Bi-O-Kleen's BacOut Stain & Odor Eliminator successfully. The initial cost (in the $5 range) could cause you to shy away from these products, but don't. You'll quickly replace many products with one or two from Bi-O-Kleen.
