    Sun & Earth all purpose cleaner is really good. As a plus, it kills ants instantly as well.

    I make must of my stuff.
    So I guess I'm helping being more green by using more natural items or not having to use as much of not so green stuffs which help with the recycling as well with my pocket.

    I also make my own detergent.

    I have recipes for lot of stuffs, if anyone is interested let me know and I'll post them.
    Some of the ones I have are..
    Homemade ..
    windex
    detergent
    Lysol food surface

    Ahh!! I have to second this! We have a full bottle of the Palmolive Eco Friendly stuff that I hate!! It does leave white residue all over and we have a new dishwasher as well.

    Sorry to bump an old thread... but I love all things green

    anyway... just because the label says it is green and natural does NOT mean it is really all the green or natural.

    totally agree... and anything that requires a disposable component (like swiffer pads and paper towels) isn't green at all!

    and IMO, if you're going to be conscientious about the enviornment when purchasing... you may want to also research what companies are testing on animals, etc. to me its a whole big picture, if you care about the planet, i'd think you'd care about animal testing too, kwim?

    for ex: arm&hammer = animal testers.

    i stick with homemade stuff, or trusted natural brands. not mainstream brands going trendy!

    We use Melalueca cleaning products. We absolutely love them!!! I order online and they are at my door with in 3days. They also sell wellness products. Dh and I love their lotion (I really started lathering my tummy up when I started noticing stretch marks (no stretch marks) works great for chaffing as well(for hubbys)) and their pain reliever cream.

    I was just going to ask if anyone heard of Melaleuca. I just got my first order the other day and so far I like it. The lotion is great! I'm excited to try out some other stuff next month!

    What do you think of Melaleuca after a couple weeks? Out of the products you have tried, which ones do you like?
