With twenty bucks and some elbow grease, you can turn your litter-strewn, sticky-countered, beer-stained place back into the gleaming pad you had (or wished you had) before your New Year’s party. And you can do it with completely eco-friendly cleaners made from natural, nice-smelling ingredients like almond and cherry oils (dishwashing liquid), lemon oil (hard surface cleaner), coconut-based soap with vinegar (glass and mirror cleaner), and cedar oil with citric acid (toilet cleaner).
Why go green? Nontoxic cleaners are safe for you, your family, and pets; they let you avoid harsh chemical smells during the time of year when it may be too cold to open windows; they don’t damage the environment; and best of all, they’re cheap at the big box. The Earth Friendly Products Cleaning pack retails at around $19 for six different cleaners, so you can be green without spending too much of it.
