Vacationing in a cabin or 2’d home? Consider natural cleaning supplies [classic article]

(As first seen on JewishJournal.com) These days, we’re all considering sustainable travel, including not leaving anything but our footprints. We don’t want to expose ourselves or others to any more chemicals. We don’t want to pollute the oceans, streams, marshes, forests or farms. It’s important to leave our travel destinations available for generations to come, for our children to see the wonders we saw.

And yet, lots of accommodations require that you clean up! Perhaps you’re staying on a sailboat or rolling across the highways in an RV. Many beach condo rentals require that you leave the place in pristine condition. Recently, I stayed in a cabin on Schroon Lake in the Adirondacks. I was very, very fortunate that the cabin was clean when I got there . . . after all, website photos don’t always tell the whole story! Still, it was an “unhosted” cabin, in that I had to tidy after myself. I was happy that I had brought along cleaning supplies.

All Purpose Cleaner can be used on any kind of surface other than wood . . . so, you’ll have to use something else if your puppy has an accident on a wood floor. Though the company has a specialized glass cleaner, I found that the All Purpose Cleaner did a nice job with mirrors and mirrored surfaces. If you think about it, it’s very important to use an all-natural cleaner in your kitchen, on tv trays and anywhere else you prepare or eat food. How often do you lay a tasting spoon down, a carving knife, spatulas on a counter and then use them? Pretty much every day, right? You don’t rinse utensils every time you place them and pick them up. Are you confident you completely rinsed that counter of chemical cleaners? Confident enough to feed a baby with that spoon? Thought so!

Bathrooms can get disgusting, for sure. Residue, soap scum, grime all conspire to make one use some sort of nuclear cleansers, if such a thing were available. Even standard bathroom cleaners can be super-harmful, too. Quick, imagine someone cleaning a bathroom. You’re picturing someone whose hair is wrapped away, hands gloved, special clothes that one would never miss. You can practically smell the noxious fumes, right? Well, Natural HomeLogic Bathroom Cleaner is efficacious without being hazardous. If you’ve ever seen an episode of “Hotel Impossible”, you’ll think about pouring some into a plastic travel container from the dollar store!

Don’t forget to wash your hands: it’s one of the best ways to prevent the spread of germs. Their Foaming Hand Soap is lightly and naturally fragranced and rinses away cleanly.
