This is going to be a quick post but I wanted to share a few cleaning items I couldn’t live with out. If you know me, you know I try to be as GREEN as possible without going insane. So, one thing I NEVER buy is paper towels. For the kitchen I use REAL towels. I usually go through 2 a day. For cleaning things like windows and mirrors instead of paper towels I use Flylady‘s Rag in a Bag:
Honestly these are the MOST AWESOME cleaning tool I have used. I have used and washed them countless time and they still look like new. And one of the best things about them is I don’t have to use ANY glass cleaner! My windows and mirrors sparkle with just a little water. I couldn’t live without them now.
My favorite cleaner? WHITE VINEGAR! I use this to clean just about everything around my house. I really don’t like using a lot of chemicals. White vinegar is 99.9% effective in killing bacteria. Plus it’s safe for my son and my dog. There are so many uses for it I can’t even name them all. I use it cut 50/50 with water for mopping, cleaning and shining stove top and sink, cleaning the little boy messes around the toilet. The list goes on and on! Have a grungy shower head or sink faucet? Put straight white vinegar in a ziploc and use a rubberband to put it on the faucet or showerhead and leave overnight. Then just rinse in the morning. No more gook and you’ll feel like you just bought a brand new showerhead!
If you like this post let me know and I will be sure to share more vinegar cleaning tips with you in the near future!
