I am just seeing this- I try to remember most things that have a thick skin or a shell that you peel off are in the 'cleaner' list.

It's why I love my homemade deodorant and use vinegar to both clean with and to soften our clothes!

We've switched to glass to store most of our products in the pantry and fridge (sure wish I could dump the zip top bags though, they're just too convenient and necessary for storage), and to drink with.

We use cloth napkins, but still about 1 roll of paper towels every six weeks or so....DH is 'allergic' to cloth napkins so he says LOL.

We try to use natural alternatives to insect control and weed/garden care whenever possible. Fireants are killing us though. The orange oil mixture we use to kill the fireants can get expensive, especially here in TX where they are so bad. Even mixing our own it gets expensive. But we can be happy that it won't harm our soil or our kids.
