I had an epiphany recently. Sure, it was cleaning-related, but an epiphany nonetheless. I noticed that several of my go-to cleaning products have been m.i.a. from my shopping list. I was out of stock and I hadn't even realized it.

And what's most surprising is that once upon a time, I thought I'd need these cleaning essentials for the rest of my life! I mean, my mom has always used them. Your mom most likely has too. These are everyday cleaning tools you pretty much take for granted - the things you stock up on or buy in bulk from big-box stores like BJ's and Costco.

But these products are now gone from my cleaning caddy, and guess what? I don't miss them. I've found that using the greener alternative for each of these products is just as effective -- plus it's better for the environment and easier on my wallet.

So, without further ado, here are the four cleaning "essentials" you never need to buy again.
