We love Ecos all natural laundry soap... it even has soy based fabric softners.
Shaklee makes some fabulous cleaning products as well. http://www.shaklee.com/index.shtml
We love their Scour Off Heavy Duty Paste for tough jobs like bathtubs and sinks.
I add a 1/4 C. baking soda to my white loads to keep them bright.
For personal cleansing products, we like California Baby and Tom's Natural.
And I have to throw this one out there... OB applicator free tampons are much more enviro-friendly and its not that bad to get used to them.
Here is a link for using vinegar, lemon juice and baking soda for cleaning purposes. http://housekeeping.about.com/cs/environment/a/alt ernateclean.htm
A great homemade glass cleaner- use 1 C. rubbing alcohol, 1 C. water, 1 T. White Vinegar. Mix and put into spray bottle. Virtually streak free. (Of course you still want it out of little ones reach.)
And a furniture polish- 1 C. Olive Oil and 1/2 C. lemon juice.
Mamajama... using those products vs. disposing of them will have similar environmental impact. The more important issue is that using them could pose a risk to your family. When we made the switch, we did it gradually... one cleaning product at a time. The choice is yours.
