To make it a little easier, we came up with the ultimate green cleaning checklist. That way, you have a list of tasks for each room so you know it will be actually clean when you are done. No more wondering if "dusting" with your fuzzy socks counts any more (hard truths but it doesn't). Check out the full list and some of our fav nontoxic cleaning supplies.

While it's staying in higher levels of the sky in places like New York, if the small particles of dust get into the air you breathe, which is more likely for those of us in California, it can cause respiratory issues and symptoms like a sinus infection.
Look for weather warnings, stay inside when you can (maybe no morning runs outside this week), and be sure to dust your windowsills - with a damp microfiber cloth is best! Even with your windows closed, dust can sneak in and settle on small ledges.
We also want to take a second to say thank you to all of the first responders who are working to contain and put out all the wildfires burning across the country. We appreciate everything they are doing to protect us and our natural resources.

We know, hearing you should clean more often kind of sucks, but the benefits of fewer chemicals that cause problems like infertility and cancer in your body (and your kid's body) might be worth it. Try wiping down surfaces with a wet microfiber cloth, it's easier than actually dusting everything and makes a huge difference. Also, microfiber cloths are like magic dust magnets - gross but also cool. For more easy, #nontoxic cleaning tips, check out our site.
