Looking for new and innovative ways to clean your house during the summer while saving time, money, and helping the environment? Look no further!
Here are our top five green cleaning tips to help you keep your home clean during the summer:
1. Use a humidifier
Though summer is one of the most beloved seasons of the year because of the heat. This season also tends to come with a lot of humidity. Where there’s heat, humidity often follows. To help keep things cool, calm and collective in your home consider running a humidifier. Humidifies can help eliminate some of the dust build up in the hot summer months.
2. Ditch the paper towel
Paper towels are becoming a thing of the past. The new and improved way to clean your house is by using microfiber cleaning cloths. This is one green cleaning tip that we just love here at Green Frog. Everyone can do it and it doesn’t cost a lot of money. You actually save money when you buy one pack of cleaning cloths versus dozens of rolls of paper towel.
3. Clean with lemons
A lot of people don’t know this but the acidity in lemons makes them a natural disinfectant. This means you can clean with them! So if you’ve already bought lemons to cut up and put in your ice tea, why not use a couple of them to help you clean your house? Not only will this make your house smell lemony fresh, you’ll be saving money and helping the environment at the same time!
4. Compost your food scraps
Ok this tip is simply amazing! And it will help the plants and trees grow healthy in your yard. Consider placing a composting bin outside your house where you can place all of your food scraps in to create a natural compost. This will help you reduce your waste drastically along with the number of garbage bags used on a weekly basis.
5. Hang your clothes on a clothesline
Many people opt in to use a clothesline for the summer to help save money on their energy bill by reducing the amount of time spent using the dryer. It’s easy and simple and doesn’t take much effort on your part. All you need to do is take your clothes from the washer outside to the clothesline and hang them to dry!
