Going Green With Your Spring Cleaning: Staple Items

I can’t believe it is time to wrap up this mini-series. I hope you have enjoyed reading along as much as I have had putting this together. It has been so much fun sharing all of the DIY recipes I have learned. I am no where near done making the journey to a green home. I am still in the market for a carpet cleaner and possible stain remover. Anyone have a good recipe?

You know I just couldn’t resist the chance to share my favorites. This certainly isn’t every cleaning product I love using but these are definitely my top 8.

Cleaning Cloths | Baking Soda | Unpaper Towels | Spray Bottles | Meyer’s Products
Green Works | Vinegar | Lemons

I ordered a set of 36 microfiber cloths from Amazon and absolutely love them. I divided them up so that I have a few in each bathroom and the kitchen. Along with that, I have a set of unpaper towels in the kitchen. We have not completely gotten rid of all paper towels in the house!

Spray bottles are great to have laying around if you have cats around the house for a rainy day. I found a wide variety of colors at Walmart. I have ended up using them for cooking, craft projects, travel and now cleaning products.

Baking soda, vinegar and lemons seem to be the latest fad in DIY home cleaning but they have been around for ages. What is great is that they are so versatile that I almost always have them around the house. Baking soda in the fridge, vinegar for when the hubs is craving Old Bay and vinegar fries and lemon for my Diet Coke water.

I like keeping Meyer’s products and a container of Green Works wipes around for those, just in case moments”. You never know when we have an, “uh ho” and I don’t have time to replenish.

That about wraps things up, for now. I can’t explain the feeling I have now when I am cleaning our house. I feel so much better about the choices I have made for my family.

    I just recently started using a few of these green cleaning techniques. I love the difference! I found that some of our old flannels make great cleaning cloths too!

    I love all these green cleaning products. I have breathing issues and using green products are a lifesaver.
