Tips & Tricks: Spring Clean and Go Green

Not only is Spring cleaning and going green good for the environment but it can also save you money as natural products can work just as well for cleaning and they don’t carry the harmful effects. Here are some top tips that will help you save money and go green while cleaning this Spring.

There are many cleaning remedies that you can use at home such as sprinkling baking soda over your carpet before vacuuming and you can mix it with water to make a strong natural paste for removing difficult stains on hard surfaces.

Another option is to use a mixture of white vinegar with water which is an environmentally safe, natural solution for your cleaning needs that can be used instead of using harmful chemicals. It’s a natural odour absorber and neutraliser which can be used to clean everything from floors, sinks, bathrooms, kitchens and you’ll be impressed with the results.

Instead of buying sponges, paper towels and cleaning wipes you can use old clothes as cleaning rags. By tearing them to use for rags you will be creating space in your wardrobe while saving money, recycling and going green.

In addition you could buy a few houseplants to put around your home that will not only filter the air indoors but you’ll be making your home go green for Spring and many months to come.
