As we all move inside because, baby, it’s cold outside!, we may be thinking it’s time to do a bit more cleaning and disinfecting.  Personally, I feel the best way to clean is to hire a local firm to do it for me … but we all have times when we need a good product for a quick or thorough cleaning.

I follow the Environmental Working Group (EWG) and most of their directives.  They published a list of “Effective and Safe Products” they recommend for cleaning.  These are ingredients that are well-rated and have fewer ingredients.

Here is the list from (in no particular order).  Follow the directions on the label.  Unlike most things I recommend, I haven’t tried all of these.  Usually, I find recommendations from EWG to be spot on.  Use these to get that spot off!
