The First Step - Cleaning
So the first step in my "Green Journey" was how i was cleaning. I was using a lot of harsh chemicals. I loved the cleaner isle which promised a bacteria free fresh smelling home... but at what cost? I did some research and found out that a health care facility had found that cleaning with a high vinegar - water ratio spray and microfiber cloths were killing bateria, and doing less harm to those with respiratory illness. So I headed to my local grocery store and picked up a giant bottle of vinegar, hit up the dollar store for some spray bottles and microfiber towels and got cleaning. It wasn't long and i was HOOKED! My now husband (then boyfriend) found his allergies were better managed, my "cleaning headaches" were gone and the house looked and smelled pretty freakin' clean! So i kept it up and i havent turned back!!! So i mix half and half distilled water and vinegar and clean away!!!
