A few months back I posted about my search for a green carpet cleaning company such as Zoots and I also inquired over at Shannon's house to see if any of her Works for Me Wednesday readers had any suggestions.
Green Nana reminded me that she and Green Gramps use a steam cleaner but without any of those toxic chemicals. Smiling Mama said to ditch the wall-to-wall altogether and highly recommended Flor carpet tiles. Someone Being Me suggested the old standby, vinegar and water, for spot cleaning.
Today, Green Husband alerted me to a recent segment on our local NBC affiliate that took a look at some green cleaning alternatives. Two recommended products, other than the vinegar solution, were Simple Green and Bon Ami products.
There was also a link to the Maid Brigade's "Green Clean Certified system" and a neat little "Tips for a Green Home" interactive quiz which was fun (I, shamefully, received a 70%). Of course the tip I cherished most was to line dry your linens on sunny days.
Speaking of sunny days, Susan over at Toddler Planet is looking forward to many more. Stop by and wish her well today.
