Cleaning Your Home the Green Way

One way to reduce your global impact is to avoid using strong chemical cleaners to clean make your craft room. But if you can’t use regular cleaning materials, how will you keep a clean and tidy art studio? Listed below are a few helpful environmentally friendly cleaning recommendations to help break your dependency on mainstream chemical cleaners.

-While you should not keep your old chemical cleaning products, you should not simply throw them in the trash. If your chemical cleaner is unfit to keep in your home, it’s even more dangerous if it ends up in a landfill. Instead of just tossing out your hazardous cleaning supplies, why not drop them off at a toxin disposal company?

-Combining baking soda and vinegar isn’t just for the kid’s science experiments! Mixing these two products with a touch of water creates a practical green cleaner, which works great for tile floors, bathrooms, and kitchens.

-Most of the time, the air inside a home can be more hazardous than the air outside. Because of this, keep your windows open as often as possible to allow fresh air access to your home. You can also include more green plants in your house which will produce more oxygen and help clean the air.

-Try using baking soda to get rid of nasty in place of chemical order eliminators. If you just sprinkle the powder on your carpets before vacuuming, you’ll find that it quickly removes unpleasant smells while being completely eco-friendly.
