Introduction: The Greener Cleaner
The cleaners you are using now have many dangerous chemicals for the environment and your family. So why not save money and the environment at the same time. Not only are u using your own earth made friendly cleaners your also recycling bottles that would otherwise go in a landfill. Think of all the energy your saving: the energy to make the bottle and then to mix the chemicals and the energy used to ship the bottle. This could be a great mother's day gift for mom. And kids could have fun mixing common household ingredients that will be made into something useful.
