When it comes to cleaning your bathroom and kitchen, there is no need to always rely on store-bought cleaning products.

Studies show that various household cleaning products have serious environmental and health risks, even when used weekly.
Here are some effective eco-friendly cleaning products that can be used in your bathroom and kitchen.
