Green Cleaners go Mainstream
The Washington Post had a great article today on How 'Green' Cleaners Measure Up. Of course, any one of us could go out and buy armfuls of cleaning products in order to compare them, but isn't it more fun to let someone else do it and read about the results? Even better, they included a link to a general editorial on the green movement and its impact on cleaning products (Green is Cleaning Up) that THEN linked to the web page of a local cleaning service in the DC area (The Green Mop) and THAT is where the real treasure is. The owner of the Green Mop, Mia Gallina, has posted all sorts of 'recipes' for simple cleaning solutions that are non-toxic and environmentally friendly. Good stuff. My shower has a permanent mold problem, and I'm going to try her vinegar solution!
