Do!  Green Cleaning Conversion

Do! Green Cleaning Conversion

There’s more to do than just decide to convert to green cleaning products in your home. If you’re like most people, you end up with the problem of what to do with the nasty chemical-laden products you are replacing. What to do with the nasty oven and toilet cleaners, windows and general purpose cleaners, and carpet and fabric cleaners? It’s not as easy a decision as you might think. I think the answer depends heavily on the reasons you decided to go green in the first place.

Of course, you can’t make lemon vinegars without peeling a few lemons. While there are lots of great things to do with fresh lemons, I’ve been craving some good pasta salad. So I worked up this recipe for lemon pasta salad with whole wheat bowtie pasta that I’m happy to share with you here.

Rag Bag Upcycle

Rag Bag Upcycle

I’m taking a look at green cleaning in my home. In my pursuit of minimalism, I set aside a few towels we didn’t need and have been looking for ways to repurpose them. If I had a bag to hold my rags and spray bottles that I could hang near my cleaning supplies, that would be a lot more convenient. So why not make a cleaning organizer rag bag out of an unneeded towel!?
