Clean Your Home Naturally (video)

This is the best video Iíve seen on how easy it is to make your own green cleaning supplies.

Patty Kim from National Geographicís The Green Guide walks you through the virtues of eight green cleaning ingredients which you can use to replace store-bought brands: baking soda, borax, distilled white vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, lemons, olive oil, vegetable-based liquid castile soap, and washing soda. If you donít feel like going the whole way, Patty suggests some simple substitutions like using a cup of hydrogen peroxide instead of bleach to brighten up your laundry.

Watch and see how easy it is to make your own green cleaning product.
