Green Cleaning

Between 2011 and 2012, the average school size was 146 students across all private schools. Yet no matter the school size, many schools are now looking for ways to create more eco- and health-friendly school environments. And one charter school recently proved just how easy it can be to make a difference to protect the earth and students. The River Valley Charter...
Stainless steel is a great finish to have in our kitchens, but it sure doesn't seem stainless. This material sure shows a lot of wear and tear, and it seems that those little fingerprints and food smears show up within a blink of an eye. But unfortunately, like many other industrial options, stainless steel cleaners are usually filled with plenty...
3 Easy Cleaning Tips to Save You Time
Cleaning can be time consuming but there are lots of ways to cut corners. Of course, if you can afford it hiring help is certainly one option. Admittedly, I hire help once a week – no lie about and it is my saving grace. I work so many hours and travel often for work that the extra help literally...
If you ask someone which spot in their house had the most germs, you might get a variety of areas. Some would say the floor, the toilet seat, or the counter tops. But they’d be wrong. To learn how to fight germ hot spots in your home, it’s important to know where they are. Even though cold and flu...
RACOP RS2 for Cleaning Dust, Pollen and Bacteria
Dust mites gross me out but they are everywhere, especially on mattresses. A single mattress can have up to 10 million dust mites. For someone who is allergic, that spells misery. Now think of the dust mites on your upholstered chairs, fancy throw pillow or drapes. These are all items in your home that you cannot easily clean or...
Green and Clean Spring Cleaning Tips and Tricks with Coupons
My family will tell you, I am a clean freak. I’ve accepted my inner #CleanFreakClean and that I like my home to be tidy and as spotless as possible. Of course with children and a dog, that’s not possible 100% of the time but admittedly, I try my best. I’m one of those moms that don’t go to bed...
BISSELL PowerForce Helix Vacuum Giveaway
Summer is around the corner and this means three things. I will waste my breath saying, take off your shoes, wipe your feet in the garage and wipe the dog’s paws. There will be dirt tracked in and lots of it. Probably black dirt from the garden too. Family will be coming to town because the weather is nice...
8 Ways to Use Vinegar for Laundry
Sunday is my day of laundry. I know it is supposed to be a day of rest but after church, I grocery shop and then begin baking and cooking and packing lunches for the week ahead. In between the cooking, I am doing laundry. You know the drill. Sorting, washing, drying, folding and then putting it away. Only to...

And there are so many other ways I use vinegar. Keep a Bathroom Toilet...
Green Cleaning with Nordic Microfibers
I love my Nordic Microfiber cloths. I was a skeptic at first, when they sent me a sample package to review.  I have a drawer full of cleaning clothes that promise to do the trick and some are rip off microfibers. Now, I’m sold. I started off with just one cloth, just to test it out. My house accumulates a...

DIY Wood Scratch Remover
We've had our bedroom dressers and end tables for almost 11 years. They’ve been beaten up over the years, like most furniture. Scratches, dings and marks from who knows what. I’ve done a good job at covering up most of the damage with “stuff” but I know what’s hiding under my pile of books and it bothers me. This...

The BLACK + DECKER 16V MAX Lithium FLEX™ Vac with floor head is my friend. My husband calls it my new toy. The kids tease me and say I need a holster for my belt. I’m using this hand held vacuum several times a day. It’s me versus the drywall dust and I’m determined to win. Here’s what I love...
Luma Comfort AP400W Air Purifier Review
Home renovation can be exciting but in my experience is also means drywall dust. Drywall dust means vacuuming, sweeping and dusting. Repeat daily for the rest of your life! Slight exaggeration but that is how I feel right now. Luckily, I was sent a Luma Comfort AP400W Air Purifier and boy what a difference it has made. We actually...
I have some holiday money that has been burning a hole in my pocket and believe it or not I keep eyeing a Dyson vacuum. You’re probably thinking I’m nuts. I've been drooling over one for some time now. I've read the reviews; I've asked on Twitter and talked to other mom’s about them. Honestly, I felt guilt paying...
It seems as though I have someone spying on me lately. Packages of cleaning products keep arriving at my door! I think someone is onto me. My house needs some spring cleaning! The reality is I’m often provided with samples of products to try them out and share them with my readers. I’ve tried a number of products over...
Does your laundry soap make you itch? Maybe it is the dryer sheets that are filled with chemicals that are making you scratch? A friend of mine recently said her daughter had a reaction from dryer sheets and I believe it! With an asthmatic daughter who suffers from eczema I can relate to the heart ache of having a...
Cleaning and cleaning and cleaning. That’s what I feel like I am always doing or should be doing. I started this blog years ago because I was concerned about the cleaners I was using and over the years this means I’ve tried a lot of “green” cleaners, steam cleaners and Eco-friendly cleaning products. Which of course, I love to...
Hiring a housekeeper or cleaning service is something I recommended over and over to people telling me they are stressed about trying to find a work, home and life balance. If you can afford to have someone come help you once a month or once a week it is worth it. For me, having someone come regularly keeps my...
More than 78 percent of women feel they work a “second shift” when it comes to their daily life responsibilities, according to findings from the 2013 Work/Life Balance Survey conducted by Maid Brigade. Responses from the annual survey also suggest that everyday home and family responsibilities may prevent women from pursuing their individual hobbies and personal health goals, adding to the...
