We usually have a hard time getting excited about housework. But the new eco-friendly J.R. Watkins Natural Home Care cleaning line may be enough to get us scrubbing and dusting like we're starring in our own daytime TV commercial.
Available online and at select Target stores, this new line of cleaning products aims to better the environment in your home and outside your window. J.R. Watkins Natural Home Care products don't contain the harsh chemicals, such as ammonia and chlorine, commonly found in household cleaners. With their all-natural ingredients and eco-friendly manufacturing processes, you can spray away knowing you're not adding toxic chemicals to the environment.
There's a health bonus too. One third of Americans suffer from allergies, asthma, sinusitis or bronchitis, and common household products are known to be one of the largest contributors to health problems in the home. So if you're looking to breathe easier, switching to natural cleaners may help.
The line includes everything from hand soaps to tub and tile cleaner, and comes in fresh fragrances like lemon, lavender, aloe and green tea, and citrus. With prices ranging from $3.99 to $4.99, there's no reason not to make earth-safe cleaners a part of your greener lifestyle. Who knew housework could be so hip and healthy?
