Green cleaning with vinegar
I am not one of those moms who has a spotless house, let me tell ya. Sure, I’d like things to always look perfect, but they rarely do. There are just so many things I’d rather be doing than cleaning. Cleaning’s a chore. It’s not fun. And I don’t find it enjoyable in the least.
Now all that being said, I obviously still have to clean, right? In my efforts towards becoming a shade of green, I’ve given my cleaning supplies a major overhaul. My theory is: If I can’t stand to be in the room smelling something I’m cleaning with, then I really shouldn’t be using it.
With that in mind, I’ve switched over to the Seventh Generation brand in many things. I love it, honestly. Even if someone drank the stuff, they could just drink a bunch of water to flush their system. No poison control. No 911. No doctor visits. Of course, I wouldn’t recommend drinking it, but you see my point.
In addition to my Seventh Generation products, I’m trying to use white vinegar more. It’s really amazing what it can do. Please check out Vinegar Tips to get a great list of its uses. My usuals include unclogging and cleaning my bathroom drain, deodorizing the garbage disposal, cleaning the coffeepot, and de-germing the bathroom. I know that’s probably not a word, but it seems nicer than saying germ-killing. Anyway, it works. Check it out.
