Let's be honest, Spring cleaning isn't an urban myth. In our house it's an annual tradition that allows us to refresh our home and make it feel new again. However, traditional cleaning methods can be harmful to the environment and our health. The good news is that there are many ways to make your spring cleaning more sustainable. Here are some tips for a sustainable home refresh:
Use natural cleaning products: Avoid cleaning products that contain harsh chemicals, which can be harmful to your health and the environment. Instead, use natural products such as vinegar, baking soda, and lemon juice. These products are effective, inexpensive, and safe for the environment.
Make your cleaning supplies: Instead of buying new cleaning supplies, try making your own. For example, you can make your own all-purpose cleaner by mixing water, vinegar, and lemon juice. You can also make your own cleaning cloths by cutting up old t-shirts or towels.
Reduce waste: Spring cleaning often generates a lot of waste, such as old cleaning supplies, papers, and clothes. Try to reduce waste by recycling or donating items that are still in good condition. For items that cannot be reused, dispose of them properly by following your local recycling and waste guidelines.
Use less water: Cleaning requires a lot of water, which can be wasteful. Try to conserve water by turning off the tap when not in use, using a bucket instead of a hose, and using a mop instead of a hose to clean your floors.
Choose sustainable cleaning tools: Avoid disposable cleaning tools such as paper towels and disposable wipes. Instead, choose reusable tools such as microfiber cloths, sponges, and mop heads. Some of our favorites can be found at Marley's Monsters. These items are durable and can be washed and reused many times.
Clean green: Opt for eco-friendly cleaning services if you’re looking for professional cleaning help. There are many green cleaning services available that use eco-friendly products and sustainable practices.
Spring cleaning doesn't have to be harmful to the environment. By making small changes, you can make your spring cleaning more sustainable and better for the environment. Do you have any tips to add?
