I have a septic system and a well, so am very careful using anything caustic or harmful.
The few things I use are:
Laundry soap is Dreft for babies. I'm a baby right? Lol
Baking soda I buy large boxes once a month. Use in litter and cleaning
I compost so most fruit & veggie puleavings go there.
The litter goes in the trash.
Plus I recycle 90% of my trash.
And I"m huge on reuse. I still have all boxes from ALL deliveries. The cats love them. Lol
So I think my home and yard are safe for critters and humans.
Love All Life, Thank You For Posting! :)
