Green Spring Cleaning

Since the kids are out of school, it's a good time for me to do some spring cleaning. Right now were going through old clothes and giving some away to a local thrift store and saving some for a garage sale. Our house will need a deep cleaning too.

As I looked through a magazine, I saw some great ways to clean greener and i wanted to share them with you.

To clean your floor- mix 1 cup Vinegar and 2 Gallons warm water

To clean your toilet bowel- pour 1 cup Vinegar and let sit for 30 minutes. Then scrub bowl with baking soda.

Tub and Tile- Remove grime and film with Vinegar on a sponge. Wipe down. Then use baking soda to scrub tub.

*You can add essential oils like Lemon, Lime, Lemongrass, or Lavender to get rid of the sour smell.

All of these recipes are all natural and contain no preservatives. because they are non toxic, they will help your family and the environment.
