  1. Make Natural Cleaners- Many home cleaning products contain toxic chemicals that contribute to indoor pollution and can harm fish and other wildlife when they go down the drain and into local waterways. Common natural ingredients like vinegar, baking soda, salt, and lemon juice can be used instead to keep your home clean.
