Here are some simple green eco-friendly cleaning tips and cleaning solutions. Simple, we only need 4 ingredients to clean most items in our home. Green and economical: distilled white vinegar, baking soda, salt and lemon juice. All environmental friendly items will make up our cleaning kit for this green cleaning tip.
Glass and Mirror Cleaning
You don’t need the harsh cleaning ammonia based window cleaner such as Windex. With this cleaning tip we will use 4 tablespoons of lemon juice mixed in a quart sprayer. Keep the paper towels in the cupboard and use yesterday’s newspaper for a streak free shine. You can also use a lint free micro-fiber cleaning towel, old T-shirt or even a cloth diaper further reducing the waste stream.
Removing Offensive Odors
Use this simple green technique for keeping the air fresh smelling in all of your rooms. Keep small bowls of white distilled vinegar in each room. Vinegar will absorb mal-odor from the upholstered furniture and carpeting. Change the bowls each day until all the odor is removed.
