Before the cold winter season locks you inside, take the time to clean your house from top to bottom. Toss out the conventional cleaners and whip up some of your own, non-toxic eco-friendly versions. For example, a mix of baking soda and warm water can be used as an all-purpose cleaner on everything from countertops to grease spills to laundry.
In fact, keep air pollutants to a minimum all winter long by cleaning with homemade products -- baking soda, vinegar, lemon juice and water can keep your home clean, germ-free and free of toxic chemicals.
