Find out about safer, more green ways to clean

Cleaning suppliesKeeping your house clean sometimes can come with a cost. It's hard to know just what sort of ingredients are in the many common household cleaners sold in stores.

The Shawnee Public Library takes a look at that topic and alternatives in its program "Have You Read the Label on That Cleaner?" The program is at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 28.

Participants will look over ratings for common household cleaners and also explore the use of everyday items like vinegar or baking soda that can be used to create more green-friendly products like laundry soap, shower cleaner and more.

Ages 18 and up may attend. Space is limited so registration is required in advance.
