Make Your Own Green Cleaning Kit

Using less harmful cleaning supplies will help reduce the level of chemicals in your home, keep your septic and sewer systems working properly, and reduce pollution in Puget Sound. You can create your own green cleaning kit with the following items:

  • Scrub brush—Lets the brush do the hard work.
  • Squeegee—Keeps soap scum off the shower when used daily.
  • Microfiber cloth—Cleans glass, chrome, and wood furniture when used dry or with tap water.
  • Drain clog strip—Pulls hair and gunk out of the sink and shower.
  • Pumice stone—Removes pan marks from sinks and toilet rings; test on small area first.
  • Liquid soap (such as pure Castile Soap, etc.)—Multi-purpose cleaner on vinyl flooring, countertops, and sinks.
  • Vinegar—Cleans glass, countertops, and some types of flooring (follow manufacturer’s recommendations).
  • Baking soda—Cleans sinks, tubs, and appliances when used with a scrub brush.
  • Oxygenated cleaner—Cleans toilets and boosts laundry detergent (not recommended for silk).
