Clean green around the home

When it comes to cleaning around the house, adding some green to your routine is easier than you might think. Consider the following environmentally-friendly cleaning practices.

>> When cleaning countertops and fixtures, use reusable cloths or rags rather than disposable paper towels.

>> Rather than using chemical carpet cleaners, treat carpet stains by lightly sprinkling baking soda over the carpet. Rub it into the fabric and then vacuum the area after one hour.

>> Polish furniture with a mixture of one teaspoon of lemon juice and one cup of vegetable oil. Apply the mixture to your furniture using a reusable cloth.
