Get Clean And Be Green




Powerful yet gentle! In honor of Earth Day, we took three environmentally friendly all-purpose cleaning products (two locally made against one national brand) and really put them to the test — we cleaned our office microwave, which is no easy task. Earth Friendly ProductsThe almost grass-like scent of the Parsley Plus spray from Earth Friendly Products definitely inspires spring cleaning. The bottle is 100 percent biodegradable to boot.
