Celebrate Earth Day with these Green Cleaning Tips
April 18, 2019
Looking for ways to keep your home clean and celebrate Earth Day this year? We have a few ideas that will help you on April 22 and all year long!
Use environmentally-conscious cleaning products
Utilizing green cleaning products is a great way to help the Earth, and your home. No, we don’t mean dye your products green – we’re talking about environmentally-conscious cleaning solutions! There are several companies that provide greener cleaning products for deodorizing and disinfecting areas in your home, and using products that are better for the environment means you can clean guilt-free, especially on Earth Day.
Not interested in using store-bought products at all? Make them yourself! Many around-the-house ingredients can be used to make effective “do it yourself” cleaning solutions. For example, white vinegar, as well as baking soda, dish soap and alcohol can be used to clean, deodorize and disinfect a variety of surfaces. Even lemon juice can be used to work wonders on mold or mildew! If you’re planning to make a cleaning solution yourself, do some research as to which combination is the best for your home.
Limit your tools
Sometimes it seems easier to use a new paper towel for every spot you clean in your home. While this is a sanitary option, it’s not exactly helpful for the environment. Instead, take advantage of reusable cloths that can be washed between uses. This method is not only more environmentally conscious, but it can also be a better economic option. To prevent cross contamination, it’s a great idea to buy or make different colored cloths that coordinate with rooms in your house. For example, always use the blue cloth to clean your bathroom and the purple cloth to clean your kitchen; That way, your bathroom germs are less likely to make their way to where you keep food.
