Before the Second World War, people used cleaners that are derived from plants and coconut oil was one of the very common ingredients for soap. Afterwards, plant based cleaners have been substituted by fuel oil and chemical products. Though some of the everyday routine can be done more quickly by the fuel oil and chemicals, living environment and more importantly our health are continuously harmed.
To be environmentally friendly and good to your health, the first action you should take is to use natural cleaners or organic cleaners for your house cleaning. Though it is cheaper and healthier to use natural or organic cleaner for household cleaning, you have to pay attention to the following house cleaning tips.
