With the frost melting away, spring is just around the corner and that means everyone should be in the spring cleaning mood! A growing trend in cleaning is cleaning the green way. This is where you use basic household supplies to keep your home sparkling. Items like white vinegar, baking soda and olive oil can be utilized in a wide range of cleaning products.
For instance, when you mix a 1/4 cup of vinegar with 1 quart of water and pour that concoction into a spray bottle, you’ve created a dandy glass cleaner. Use old newspaper or lint-free cloth to make sure your windows will glisten. For kitchen and bathroom tile countertops you can use a mixture of 2 parts vinegar, 1 part baking soda and 4 parts water. Sponge that along the counters to wipe up the grime. That same vinegar can be used to mop up your floors with 4 cups of vinegar to one gallon of hot water. If you like you can add in some lemon oil for a sweet citrusy scent. If you want to get rid of any mold spots in your bathroom, try wiping them away with straight up vinegar.
Another green approach to spring cleaning is to hang up a laundry line. This is definitely the old school way of drying your clothes but it will help you cut back on your energy bill and leave your clothes smelling as fresh as the spring air.
As you make your way through your home with your green cleaning products you’ll probably notice a lot of items which would be better served outside of your home.
