Between illness, tracked-in dirt, mealtime messes and general grime that comes par for the course as a family of four, my house could always use a good cleaning. Instead of using traditional chemical-laden cleaners, though, I rely on natural solutions that don't pose risks to my kids or pets. Switching to natural and organic products also improves overall indoor air quality since you aren't releasing harsh chemicals into the air, which in turn helps reduce skin irritations and respiratory infections. Plus, non-toxic, biodegradable and renewable ingredients are better for the environment. While all of these green cleaners may not kill every virus, they do keep your home microbe-friendly, allowing the "good" bacteria to stay in your home's ecosystem.

Keep scrolling to see the tried-and-true products I use because they are kid-safe, clean my house efficiently and are kind to the earth.
