      Go green and make your own cleaning products

      When you reach into your cabinets to pull out your cleaning supplies, you might want to think twice about what you're using.

      With warm weather venturing into the Tri-States, spring cleaning will be upon us.

      When you reach into your cabinets to pull out your cleaning supplies, you might want to think twice about what you're using.

      Cleaning may not be your favorite chore around the house, and the products you use could be doing more harm to you than you think.

      Pam Maddox made the switch to making her own household cleaners after health issues.

      "I found that my own health was suffering when I first started working with natural products," Maddox said. "And so it's been a progressive path of learning how to keep myself healthy, keep myself energetic."

      Maddox says making your own products isn't just easy, it's cheaper than you'd think.

      "Most of our traditional house cleaning products have over 62 different chemicals, said Maddox. "The skin is our largest organ, and things go directly into the skin, and go right into the blood stream. And so when were touching things, we're absorbing that."

      To educate the public on this going green trend, Maddox will be teaching classes, where students will make their very own cleaning products.

      The class will be held at John Wood Community College on April 28 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
