So I tried cleaning glass and windows with a spray bottle full of vinegar and water . . . and it is amazing! It actually is much better than the eco-friendly window cleaner I had been buying.
I think getting the supplies and recipes together is a big hurdle for busy people (and who isn't busy?) To make it easier and fun, why not get some friends together and have a "green cleaning" party. Everyone can leave armed with the supplies and information they need to begin.
I found a handy option online for hosting such an event from a group called Women's Voices for the Earth (I've written about them before.) They have just launched a green cleaning campaign which helps people host such parties. Their package includes a book of party planning tips, a dvd to watch with your friends about green cleaning, recipe cards for various tasks, supply lists of what to buy for the party materials, labels to mark the cleansers as people make them, and fact sheets to give away.
