Green Home Workshop: Toxic-Free Home Cleaning Products
Saturday, February 18, 2012 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM (EST)
Greener Cleaners that Make Your House Sparkle
Hard water leaves rings on our toilet bowls and crust in our kettles and coffee makers. Our kids and pets leave stains on our walls and carpets. Colds and viruses lurk on our door knobs and countertops. How do we banish lime, remove stains and disinfect our homes without putting unwanted chemicals into our air and water?
Find out from our natural cleaning expert how to move from frustration to action! Roll up your sleeves to make your own cleaners to take home. Next take our Stain Buster challenge to test a variety of simple recipes on some stubborn stains!
