Natural Cleaning Solutions:
Eco Friendly Chores for Little Kids
When it comes to household chores, it’s always nice to have a little help, especially from those family members who seem to create the most mess. If you’re a parent whose toddler or young child is eager to help you clean, congratulations! Studies have shown that teaching children to do chores at an early age builds a sense of mastery and self-reliance. In addition, chores focused on helping the family vs self care help to build empathy. Anyone with a young child knows that the road to empathy is a long hard one (Mom: “OOOOUCH! Stepping on that Lego hurt!” Child: “Mama! You broke my Batman helicopter!”).
A Truly Eco Friendly Cleaner
While it’s exciting when your little one wants to share in the workload, we completely understand if you’re a little apprehensive at first. After all, even many supposedly eco friendly cleaning products are made up of toxic chemicals. Many contain toxic fragrances, dyes, preservatives, allergens & irritants that can be harmful to your child. That’s because there are no federal standards for products calling themselves “natural”, and cleaning product manufacturers aren’t required to list all their ingredients on their labels.
Force of Nature, however, eliminates that concern altogether. It’s so family-friendly to use, your kids can clean right along with you. There are no harmful fumes, allergens, asthma triggers or irritants that can harm skin.
Below we’ve listed several ways your child can use this truly eco friendly cleaner and deodorizer to help you tackle messes, grime & odor in your home:
1. Countertops & Tables
Your resident artist, chef, or scientist probably makes a mess along with masterpieces. The good news is that without harmful chemicals, Force of Nature is kid-friendly so your little helper can spray and wipe down your table and counters right along with you.
2. The Trashcan
We’ve all had those occasions we don’t have enough time to take out the trash, but those old coffee grinds and chicken carcass won’t be ignored. Buy yourself a respite from the stench and have your little helper spray that monster with Force of Nature. And after you take out the trash, have your child spray our natural deodorizer in the trashcan to help prevent new nasty odors from forming.
3. Fresh flowers
Let your son or daughter spray Force of Nature onto the stems of fresh-cut flowers every couple of days to keep those blooms beautiful longer.
4. The Dishwasher
Sometimes you might only have the dishwasher 1/4 full and find that it smells inside. Your child can spray inside the washer to stop the odor, and there are no dangerous fumes or allergens to worry about.
5. Stinky Shoes
Is the smell of Daddy’s shoes the punchline of a running joke in your house? If you leave your sneakers in the car on a hot day, do they invite you in when you open the door? Have your little helper spray those stinkers on a regular basis and Force of Nature will stop those nasty odors.
6. The toilet
If you have a son, you know that cleaning the potty seat can be a 7 day a week job. Unlike most bathroom cleaners which have dangerous chemicals in them, Force of Nature is free of harmful chemicals and fumes. Your child can help you clean that toilet seat – no gloves needed!
7. The bathtub
Anyone with a toddler or young child knows they love spray bottles more than life itself. Arm them with Force of Nature and put them to work right alongside you. Let your child go to town spraying the tub or even scrubbing, depending on how much you trust them with a scrub brush! No gloves necessary.
