Keeping the house clean shouldn’t have to be all-consuming. Here are a couple of suggestions to help streamline the cleaning chores — for you or the kiddos. For natural cleaning solutions, sometimes you don’t need to go any further than the pantry. For everything else, come to the Co-op.
Shine while you cook: Harness the power of citrus to make a cloudy sink shine. Once you have the juice or zest you need from a lemon, sneak a little cleaning in by using half a lemon to scrub the kitchen sink. The acidic lemon juice will break up hard water stains and help make it glimmer like new. You can also make stuck-on messes disappear by using the rind like the rough side of the sponge.
One soap to clean it all: Streamline your cleaning needs by ditching all those separate bottles for the endlessly versatile Dr. Bronner’s 18-In-1 Pure-Castile Soap. Follow the easy dilution instructions on the bottle, and you’ve got everything from a face wash, body wash and shampoo, to a laundry detergent, produce rinse and dish soap. All that, plus some interesting reading!
