Clean and Green
Posted by eemilla on August 19, 2009
I have successfully procrastinated cleaning the bathroom for three days now! One of the reasons I hate cleaning the bathroom is that I haven’t greened up with the cleaning products. I have stopped using paper towels for most cleaning, and I now have a nice collection of rags and dog towels. However, I still use chemical surface cleaners, even as I soak the shower curtain in the washer with vinegar and use old newspaper to clean the mirror. Small Footprints from Reduce Footprints is challenging everyone to green up the cleaning routine. Over the past year, many a green cleaning tip has appeared, and this week there are some handy links for homemade green cleaners.
My favorites is one my mom used: vinegar water in a spray bottle for glass cleaner. My husband worked in a restaurant that cleaned their bathroom mirror with old newspaper, and I love that one too! I have used baking soda in lieu of abrasive powders, but it isn’t something that has turned into a habit yet. I guess I cannot procrastinate any longer so later today I will employing some of the suggestions along with plenty of elbow grease.
