Comment now with your questions, and I pledge to answer them this month!
To get us started, Alicia Sokolowski, founder of Aspen Clean, shares her top tips for a green spring clean:
- Use microfibre. To get rid of germs and bacteria, focus on eliminating carriers. Microfibre cloths are more effective than cloth or paper for picking up dust, dirt and microbes. (Of course, they're petroleum based where as an old t-shirt turned rag is zero-impact, so the priority here is your call).
- Go fragrance free. A strong scent does not mean clean. Fragrance-free cleaners are equally effective, healthier and kinder to the Earth.
- Be safe. Avoid products with labels warning about hazardous ingredients (like "poison"!) or other cautions.
- Try homemade cleaners. Take a DIY approach to cleaners. It's easy, effective and safe.
