Production Tips of the Day: CLEANING

– Replace chemical cleaning products with nontoxic, biodegradable alternatives that won’t pollute indoor air or local waterways;
– Look for the following certifications: USDA organic, Natural Products Association, and Greenseal. Visit goodguide.com to compare products’ environmental and health ratings;
– Purchase products in concentrates and bulk sizes to cut down on packaging waste;
– Use natural sponges and cloth rags instead of paper towels

Try these economical DIY cleaners:

  • Glass: 1/4 cup distilled white vinegar and 2 cups water
  • Scouring cleanser: baking soda and water
  • Disinfectant: Hydrogen peroxide
  • Grease: Lemon juice
  • Wood polish: 1/2 cup white vinegar and 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • Unclog drains: equal parts baking soda and white vinegar
