For those who prefer "natural" or environmentally friendly cleaning product substitutes, the choices are mushrooming.
Not only are suppliers creating new "earth-friendly" cleaners that make it easier to green clean save, but traditional products are containing more natural ingredients.
A few things to consider when choosing between so-called natural and synthetic products: Whether naturally or artificially derived, all ingredients - even water - are chemicals. There are no nontoxic substances.
Even salt can be deadly if taken in too high a dose. (Also, some cleaning products -notably bleach and ammonia - are dangerous when mixed. Read and follow precautions on product labels.)
