Best Green Cleaners for Summer Activites

Summertime is my favorite season!
I love all the outdoor possibilities and adventures this season has. 
Living in a northern state is all the more reason to take advantage of the limited warm temperatures.

Camping trips with my family have been one of the special points of summer.  When camping, I especially am careful about the cleaning products we take on our excursions.  When out in nature there is a heightened sense of responsibility to be a good stewardship of the environment.

If you are a camper, you understand the amount of work required to prepare, pack, and unload all the gear.  You try to pack as light and efficient as possible.  When it comes to camp cleanup, keeping it simple applies here to.

** If you are not a camper, stick through the post for suggestions on quick summertime cleanup tips for you!

Top Three Green Cleanup Tools (When Camping):
1.) Harmony Aromatherapy Dish Wash:  Whether you camp via tent or RV, you still have to wash dishes.  So the top camping green cleaner is Dish Wash.   (If that is all you can pack—then make sure this is the cleaner you take.)

2.) Harmony All-Purpose Degreaser:  If you like to grill hot dogs, burgers, and or bacon over your cooktop or grill, you will want to have along for the trip Brightly Green Degreaser. 

3.) Harmony Aromatherapy Multi-Purpose Cleaner:  In the spirit of packing light, use Brightly Green Multi-Purpose Cleaner for all other camping cleanup jobs.  Multi-Purpose Cleaner is especially helpful for those camping in RVs.   If you are a tent camper, you can get by with the first and second green cleaners. 

For the Non-Campers in the World:
You have a busy summer planned for family too!   With friends and family coming over for visits, you may need to do more quick cleanups than you typically would, so the Top Three Green Cleanup Tools can serve you as well!    My mother-in-law, Sharron McAdams, (Owner and President of HG Labs' Harmony Aromatherapy) once told me that camping to her meant having to go down a flight of stairs in the hotel to get to the ice machine!  Camping isn't for all of us, but summertime get togethers are, so keep your environment green clean and ready for your next adventure whether it be your own backyard or the great outdoors!

Why Homemade Cleaners are Subpar

There is a growing pushback against chemicals in household cleaners which is generating the desire for "cooking up" homemade cleaners.  These household cleaners, typically made with vinegar and baking soda, do an "ok" job of cleaning limited surfaces, but could damage many other surfaces in your home.  The use of specific green cleaners on specific surfaces will give your home an optimal, safe green clean.
