A few things have happened recently: 1. St. Patrick's Day and 2. The first day of spring
I would like to combine these two, and talk about spring cleaning... green style.
First, who has good green spring cleaning tips or ideas?? I've been researching it for the past couple of days, and I think that pretty much are you need to spring clean greenly is a few simple things:
2. baking soda
4. white vinegar
With a combination of these ingredients, you can clean just about anything from windows to drains. water+vinegar+newspaper=clean windows, baking soda+water=cleared drains, sparkly countertops and tile. Sprinkling baking soda on your carpet and then vacuuming it up eliminates weird carpet odors.
If you are not into home brewed recipes, then you should know that there are green cleaning products available at stores. I am sure that this is common knowledge, but it is good to be aware of.
Aside from being environmentally responsible, perks of spring cleaning include:
- you can get your kids involved!
- avoid toxic fumes inside your home.
Good luck with your green spring clean!
