Yes, I am aware that Earth Day has come and gone, but as any of my friends will tell you, I am not so good at remembering things on the actual day they occur. I will note that they are coming up, with a mental "Must Remember!" and then remember again a day or two after the fact. (Speaking of which HAPPY BIRTHDAY SELINA!!) I have decided it is just one of those things about me that I have to embrace, because I can't seem to fix it.
So since I have a day of house cleaning ahead of me, I thought I would do a quick roundup of some of the eco cleaning options out there.
Eco Scrubbies available on Etsy. They look like crocheted little poufs, but made with some cool scratchy material. I want one. I am sure you could buy something similar, but as you know I am all for buying something handmade insead.
Etsy also has tons of options for dusting - especially for Swiffer dusters.
flannel Swiffer floor duster covers ($7 for 4),
terry cloth version ($10 for 4),
reversible crochet version ($8 for 1).
Of course, there is always the option of making your own - here is the pattern for the above crochet version.
For the swiffer/pledge duster, there are these fleece covers that can of course be washed over and over!
And remember all that tshirt yarn? Why not knit up a few colourful washcloths?
recipes for homemade cleaners, and you have a nice Earth Day gift!
You know...for next year...if you remember.
