New Green Products Offer Safety and Cleaning Power
Being green and clean is the latest in more environmentally- beneficial products. The Giggle Guide™ has discovered three clear winners that work well on dirt without making a mess of your home’s environment! Check out Dapple, Field Organics and BabyGanics.
The green scene has grown to include almost every aspect of children and family life. Green toys, organic clothes, organic food; it’s all covered.
Eco-friendly products have expanded once again to include cleaning products — the cleansers and solvents that come into contact with every surface of our lives. Some “non-green” clenasers have the potential to contaminate even the most organic and wholesome toys and clothing. The new sparkling green category includes cleaning products that are safe for children and the environment.
Cleaning Can Be a Dirty Business
Traditional cleaning products contain harsh chemicals that are not safe for human consumption. In a home with small children and babies, everything is consumed. Every surface is fair play for little mouths and hands, not to mention children’s dishes, bottles, and clothing. Emerging products have been developed by conscious parents who noticed the smells and lingering films on household items. These entrepreneurs set out to develop something that could effectively clean, without leaving their own damaging residue behind.

These “founding-fathers” thought “environmentally friendly” should include safe for people.
The BabyGanics line is organic and has no dyes. The comprehensive line includes something for every room in the house. Each product has a fun name like the stain remover, “Stain, Stain, Go Away” or the “Sparkle Maker” glass cleaner. This line even includes an air freshener and odor eliminator, the “Breathin Easy.” More information about BabyGanics can be found at www.BabyGanics.com.
