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.

The wacky weather that has hit the country this year has brought spring into the Charlotte area a lot sooner than anyone anticipated. The result is that pollen is everywhere. It’s covering Lake Norman, dusting cars and the ground. By some estimates this is the worst season for pollen in over ten years.
All of this can be traced back to the warm weather that has swept through the Charlotte area. On the average it has been five degrees higher than normal. This has tricked plants and trees into blooming earlier and in a short amount of time. Normally, this blooming is spread out over a couple of weeks which allows the pollen to spread out a bit more. Now it has exploded in two days which has left many residents heading indoors. What are the numbers? Last year the oak pollen count was just 1,200 grams per cubic meter. This year the count was as high as 8,829 grams per cubic meter. That’s a lot of pollen.
With all of those particles flying about, it might motivate you to begin your spring cleaning project earlier.
