Natural Cleaning Products

By Sally Mandani-Volunteer

On Tuesday, March 1, 2011, Greening Sacred Spaces went up the mountain in Hamilton,

Ontario to Regina Mundi Roman Catholic Church to advocate toxic free cleaning products. These

cleaning products were not harmful to the environment or to the individual using them. Two

volunteers, Leanne and Sally helped Beatrice from Environment Hamilton: Greening Sacred Spaces,

inform and educate the members of Regina Mundi on the history of cleaning products, and the harmful

chemicals that can be found in most of them. Beatrice and her volunteers put together a soft scrub and

an all purpose cleaner using a few natural and safe ingredients. Everyone was encouraged to take

samples home along with instructions on how to make them. The members were very interested, and

would include some personal tips they had on ways to reduce toxins in everyday cleaning. The group,

which consisted of all women, were extremely helpful and enjoyable to be with. We shared many

laughs, tips and opinions on safe ingredients to use around the home to save the environment, our

health, and our pockets.

All purpose cleaner:

Mix ½ cup of vinegar, ¼ cup baking soda, and 2 liters of water all together in a bucket. Easy as

1-2-3! Buy plastic bottles to store the remaining cleaner for future use.
