cleaning green.

You know why I kinda, almost, like, cleaning? Because it means that I actually have a (rare) spare moment at home. 

Over the last few months my Costco "family size" cleaning supplies have finally come to an end and I have been trying to replace everything with simpler/green products. I know my inner hippie is coming out, but making small changes will eventually lead to big things (compare to your workout.) Not to mention "green" products smell really good and don't trash your skin. WIN.  

Simple things to switch

counter cleaner 

recycled paper products

laundry soap 

those little dishwasher packets

hand soap 

washable rags instead of paper towels 

choosing the "eco cycle" 

recycling :) 

Starting a compost pile might be a little much for me now, but baby steps right

BTW I never have leftovers...I swim. 

Easy to make all purpose cleaner! 

Mix 1/2 cup vinegar and 1/4 cup baking soda (or 2 teaspoons borax) into 1/2 gallon (2 liters) water. Store and keep.

No joke, this was my horoscope 2 days ago...HAHA.

"Have you resolved to give your house a thorough cleaning? You may have gone to the store and bought every conceivable type of cleaner. You're determined not to quit until the house is spotless. Use natural cleaners if possible. Chemical substances could seem especially harsh today. Second, don't try to do it all now. Take care of the worst and then leave the rest for tomorrow."
