Same here! He's a mechanic and they use a lot of household cleaners so I told him to take it with him! I hated when he used to use comet too. :/

Quoting chrissysnow22:

Eww that stuff smell awful. They used it at my job once and I thought I was dying! My dh is always trying to use that smelly stuff. I just cleaned under our sink and gt rid of most of it.


Quoting SalmonBerry87:

Me too!! SO tried using his nasty easy off crap on the stove the other day and I was like no no no. And I showed him the wonder of baking soda and vinegar/lemon juice lol.

So I told him he can take his oven cleaner to work cause I don't want to breathe it in.




Quoting chrissysnow22:

Umm i'd say make your own cleaner. It's easy and only takes a bit of time. Plus I hate the smell of artificial clean.

Oh. I love the smell of my house since I switched. I can't believe I used to use that crap.

 well....this post is almost a year old, but since I wasn't very active a year ago and didn't answer....I will now.

Every green person should use reusable bags. It's green 101.

I'm guilty of not using them much but only where I get paper to donate to the food bank. Otherwise they have to buy them.
I think everybody should eat healthier.

I do believe these ladies have hit the Jackpot!  I agree with them on all of these things.  The breastfeeding is all depends if your able too.  I tried to breast feed both of my boys, but I just couldn't.  Alot of reasoning's.  So they ended up with formula.  I was young when I had them, and different mind set back then.  But that is another story in itself.  lol!

I didn't know I hated it until I started using vinegar :) but it makes my head hurt now.


What I think any mama should do: whatever they can. It won't be the same for everyone. Pick one thing- and do that. It all makes a difference.
