Learn how to make less toxic and more affordable cleaning products
What if you could replace a shopping cart full of hazardous household cleaning supplies with a handful of less toxic items you might already have in your home? It’s not a fantasy, but a reality—one that’s not only good for the environment, but your wallet as well. Learn how to make less toxic and more affordable cleaning products for the home from common household ingredients. The Riverside County Department of Waste Resources will host a free Green Cleaning class in Hemet on July 13 to teach residents how to easily make cleaning products that are environmentally safe and effective.
Green Cleaning teaches the benefits of using sustainable, environmentally sound cleaning practices. Presenters explain how to simplify your cleaning products, save money, and make your home a safer environment. The class demonstrates how easy it is to make cleaning products from ingredients most people already have in their home, such as vinegar, baking soda and rubbing alcohol. Participants receive a booklet containing basic recipes to make their own cleaning products at home. The result is simple cleaning products that leave less chemical residue behind on surfaces where food is prepared, children crawl or pets walk.
The free “how-to” Green Cleaning class begins at 5:30 p.m. on July 13 at the Hemet Public Library, 300 East Latham Ave. in Hemet.
