What can I do to avoid using toxic household cleaners?

Warning message

Some recycling and solid waste facilities are temporarily closed, operating with reduced hours, or accepting a limited range of materials – please call ahead. Consider delaying your visit to facilities unless absolutely necessary by storing dry recyclables and other items at home temporarily.

There are many easy recipes for alternative cleaning products. Making your own household cleaning products is cheaper and safer for you and the environment. Please view our Household Hazardous Waste Toxics Toolkit for more information and simple recipes for making your own household cleaners. Share the information in the Toxics Toolkit or in the video below with friends and family!
