Green Cleaning Through the Seasons: Jumpstart Spring Cleaning

Closets have often been associated with fear. For children, they fear monsters are in their closets.  Thriller movies keep you in suspense because of who may be lurking in the closet.

Closets are sometimes just plan scary-- you could get a concussion from whatever falls out of them when you open the door!

Jumpstart your green spring cleaning by taking the fear out of the closets!

All Natural Green Clean Spotlight

HG Labs' Harmony Product Spotlight…

"Harmony Aromatherapy Bathroom Cleaner has a unique, three way attack on the soils found in a bathroom,"  
--Prof. Jerry McAdams (technical director & formulator for HG Labs' Harmony Aromatherapy Cleaners)

All-natural ingredients—three way attack:
Citric acid:  neutralizes hard water spots and soap scum

All-natural solvent (corn ethanol): dissolves oily residues.
All-natural soap: wipes clean any remaining soil found on bathroom surfaces.

Essential oil:  lavender (soothing, calming)

--Simple, natural ingredients that safely and effectively clean bathroom surfaces.
--Won't burn eyes or skin.

--Safe for allergy/asthma sufferers.

--Safe around infants, children and pets.
--Safe for the environment. 

Hard Water Stains--No More!
Hard water stains are really calcium deposits that build up around faucet and sink surfaces.  Harmony Bathroom Cleaner is more effective at removing those stubborn stains than vinegar.  Why?  Harmony Bathroom Cleaner does not emit poignant fumes, nor is harsh on faucet and sink surfaces.

For heavy calcium deposits spray Harmony Bathroom Cleaner on hard water stain and allow the green cleaner to sit on the surface of the deposit for about an hour.  Less time is needed if the calcium deposits are not that bad.  Wipe clean with a dampened cloth.  The all natural citric acid works by breaking down the calcium deposits.  The longer you allow the cleaner to stay on the surface of the deposit, the better the job it will do at breaking down the calcium.  Let Harmony Bathroom Cleaner do the work for you!

Routine green cleaning keeps calcium from being able to form on surfaces.  Prevention always saves time and labor in the long run!

Green Cleaning Through the Seasons: Part Two-- The Kitchen

In a previous week we began a new series entitled: "Green Cleaning Through the Seasons."  To start this series, we began with the office.  If you missed this great launching point, click "Organize my Work!" and get linked to the nuts and bolts of why we need to begin here and how. 
This week we are heading to the kitchen!

If we were to take a survey of the top ten New Year's Resolutions individuals make, one of the Top Ten would be—eat healthier!  Eating healthy on a consistent basis is best done by eating at home where you have greater control over the ingredients used in your meals.  Eating healthy meals at home are also less expensive than eating out.  Changing our eating habits will reveal changes we need to make in our food storage areas and refrigerators.  
To advance this resolution, we need to get our kitchen in shape!  Let's get to work…
