Green cleaning tips

1. Recycle your holey T-shirts

Old t-shirts and socks? Don’t throw them away – use them to clean! They’re easy to throw in the laundry when dirty and you’ll help the environment along the way by avoiding use of paper products.

2. When given a lemon…

As an alternative to bleach, use lemon juice to remove stains from clothing.

4. Reach for vinegar

I typically reach for baking soda and vinegar in my green cleaning efforts. I'm still experimenting with essential oils and scents. I guess lemon is good as it already has a lovely natural scent of its own.
