Green for spring cleaning

The words "natural" and "green" don't mean less toxic. Right now, there is no federal law requiring most cleaning products to disclose their ingredients on the labels. Some ingredients that seem healthy, such as botanical oils, can trigger allergies. I know because I have tried a few.

Those helpful folks at Environmental Working Group have some great info  in their Green Cleaning Guide.

Check out EWG's info on laundry products too. The Chesapeake Bay will thank you.
