Going Green with your Laundry

So you’ve switched to vinegar and baking soda for cleaning. You eat organic food. You recycle. But what about your laundry?

Detergent is incredibly detrimental to our freshwater and the fish that live within.

Green Cleaning Myths

Common Myth #1: Green Cleaning means I have to work harder and use more time.

Not true at all. Actually, you will spend the same amount of time, if not less, when you use green and non-toxin cleaners.
