Pop over to It’s Frugal Being Green this morning, where you’ll find a post by yours truly on Why I Love Microfiber Cloths. I’m a big greenie when it comes to cleaning, and I’ve continued to pare down my chemicals more and more as the years go by and the number of children in our house goes up. (UPDATE: See my own post on How to Use Microfiber Cloths for Cleaning.)
For example, I’ve only used a product containing bleach twice in the past year: when feces rained down on our laundry room from the upstairs bathroom (oh, how I wish I had been blogging at the time! What a post that would have been!), and when I washed a dark green tablecloth with the whites (another reason this blog isn’t called “Laundry Stewardship”). We don’t even have toilet bowl cleaner in the house anymore. I keep cleaning simple, safe and inexpensive.
The Mrs. Meyer’s Dishsoap Giveaway kicks off a little series on natural cleaning. During the month of August, I’m going to give you some of my tips and tricks for cleaning and still being able to breathe safely in your kitchens, as well as some products you can buy if you’re not into the whole homemade thing.
Be sure to visit frequently for a few more giveaways (TWO start next week – GREAT local gals who make nursing bracelets and very affordable natural products for lots of needs, from baby’s bottom to Mommy’s face) and all the homemade cleaning solutions and time-savers.
