Homeology, Are You Green? Go Blue!!


I'd like to talk to you about a cleaning product. You might wonder why I would choose to do that on my garden blog. I'll tell you why.

A few weeks ago, I was spritzing my regular window cleaner, the one that starts with W and was featured on My Big Fat Greek Wedding, you know the one. It doesn't really matter that it was a name brand but just the type of cleaner it was. I have used it a thousand times or more on my windows.
This time, being in the rush that I usually am, I sprayed it on my windows right above my window shelf with my potted herbs. I admit to doing this same thing before -- I'm always in a hurry. Now, I didn't spray directly on my plants, but for the first time I realized that the overspray was settling on them. All along I had prided myself on growing my own herbs in the kitchen and in the garden. I make sure in the garden that there are no chemicals or grass fertilizers used anywhere near them so I always feel confident that just a light wash with water, or dusting off and they are good to go. I didn't think I had to worry about the window plants ... until now. Now I know that I have been putting window cleaners inadvertently on my "organically-grown" herbs as the mist floated through the air.

It was then that I went on a hunt and I found a great cleaning product on the Internet. Homeology is a plant-based home cleaner infused with essential oils made by Gold Canyon. I contacted the company and they were generous enough to let me sample their product. I have the All Purpose cleaner with a rosemary/mint scent.
The active ingredients are from natural sources, it's biodegradable, nontoxic, with no ammonia, chlorine, phosphates or artificial dyes. You can't go wrong with info like that.

Floor Lavendar, Eucalyptus, Sweet Orange... wow, does THAT sound wonderful to use on floors (especially the no polishing part lol)! I imagine these products smell fantastic, and I would love my house to have a wonderful scent! (am also tempted by the Mandarin Eucalyptus Clove Cleanse)
