chemical free cleaning

Ever since I found out I was pregnant I've thought a lot about what we use to clean our home. I started switching over to environmentally friendly, all natural cleaners a few years ago for most of our cleaning needs. The one area that I had yet to find a good cleaner was for our floors. This became a big priority when I realized we'd have a little baby crawling around on them soon. Chemicals in cleaning supplies have been linked to all sorts of health problems, not to mention the impact on the environment.....

I was inspired by my friend Emily who got a steam mop before her son Asher was born. Carl and I researched them and finally bought one last week. Ou new Shark Steam Pocket Mop arrived the other day!

It uses water (steam) to clean the floors. Totally chemical free. Also, you save money (and have less waste) because you're not buying all those pads and bottles of cleaning solution like with a swiffer.

I 'll let you know how well it works!
