Spring Cleaning

My Green Tips for Spring Cleaning

  • Using sponges and micro-fiber cloths instead of disposable paper towels;
  • Using natural cleaners like vinegar, baking soda, lemon, essential oils and borax, in place of toxic cleaners that include ammonia, bleach, phosphates, and other harmful corrosives;
  • Using tea tree oil as an antibacterial agent and grease solvent. Not only is this essential oil used as a health remedy for sores, cuts, and burns, but it can also be used to get rid of mold and mildew. Just a little dab will do, so use sparingly – a few drops at a time. (Available in health food stores and some drugstores);
  • Recycling the clutter in your home by donating it to a local thrift shop or joining Freecycle. The less cluttered your home is, the easier it will be to clean!
