Home is where we return to after a long day to rest and recuperate; it's also a space within which young children spend most of their growing years.

It make sense, then, to put a little effort into keeping the house free from harmful chemical substances. Especially with small children who spend much of their days crawling or playing on the floors, and putting things in their mouths.

Otherwise, whip up your own cleaners from the kitchen. Some ideas to get you started...
