It's Cool to be Green

Housing cleaning is a chore but needs to be done. Having a clean home or office, saving some money and supporting a healthy environment is a total WIN/WIN situation.

I have chosen to start eliminating bleaches, ammonia's and other toxic cleaners because there really are other alternatives. I have children, I have pets and our overall help is extremely important to me.

Besides the home made recipes below, I belong to a wellness club were I can by cleaners, food and other healthy supplies by phone or on-line. I save a ton of money, love the products and by the way they offer a way to make money with their wellness items as well. That my friends, I will write about on my next blog.

In the meantime, try these cleaners which are less toxic, easy on the budget and saves a trip to the grocery store. Most of these items you may already have in your cabinets.

1/2 cup borax (borax can be found in the laundry aisle)
1 gal. hot water

Mix amounts in pail or use smaller amounts in a spray bottle (1/4 cup or borax to 1 qt. of hot water) Dissolve completely and begin wiping down, it makes a great surface cleaner.

Glass Cleaner
1/4 cup white vinegar or 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
2+ cups of water
Fill a clean spray bottle with water and either white vinegar or lemon juice, wipe surfaces with an old newspaper. Believe me this really works!
