Hey everybody, what’s up? I’ve been taking some time away from posting to enjoy the lovely rainy weather that rolls around this time of year (yay!!!). My time has also been consumed by pure relaxation (laziness) and cleaning my apartment from ceiling to floor, literally. Transition to the topic of this post: green cleaning. Commercial household cleaners are evil toxic blends of death. The smell alone burns my lungs. In an effort to avoid sacrificing essential organs for a clean home, Tim and I make our own cleaners (laundry detergent, floor cleaner, bathroom scrub, wall disinfectant, etc) and we love them and their effectiveness. Most of the recipes we use come from the handiest, dandiest little book called Make Your Place by Raleigh Briggs. The book includes recipes/tips/skills for health & first aid, cleaning & body care, and gardening. And, everything is so easy to make. The book is written with charm and humor – I just love this book! I love it so much that I am giving a copy away to one lucky reader!!!! Make your place clean too! All you have to do is leave a comment telling me your favorite eco-friendly cleaning tip, recipe, whatever. I will ship the book overseas, so EVERYBODY can enter. I will randomly select a winner on Tuesday, November 24th (11:59 pm Pacific time). Good luck and I can’t wait to hear all of your green cleaning tips!
