Post image for The Green Way to Spring Clean

I love the idea of spring cleaning. A time to open the windows, dust off winter, and shake out the chill. Read more »

Green is always the best way of doing cleaning related stuff. Baking soda IMO is something that can help in almost everything that must be cleaned. It's clearly "magical". Thanks for the great post and all the help you provide with it :) I already shared it with some of my friends.

i used mixtures like this for years - and then realized it is not safe to use on marble or even tile surfaces. The vinegar eats the grout pretty quickly. I opt for natural cleaning products sold by reputable names - there are so many out there now :)

It's great idea :D I made already two homemade papers so I'll try with seeds. I tried to place in mine dry flowers, but the paper was stained by them in yellow (can I say that? English isn't my native language D:). I will try again! https://www.etsy.com/shop/wildcity

This DIY is so perfect! ^_^ Also- those apothecary candles (like the one in the second to last photo) are seriously THE BEST! The tobacco and patchouli one is my favorite <3

Amazing. Do you use the washing soda for all the washes or just the initial ones?

I find that buying them at the thrift store is much more cost effective. I always find my cloth napkins there for 10 cents a piece or in a set of 6 for 50 cents. No one ever wants them and they always have a lot, sometimes they even have really nice ones that are embroidered.
