There are lots of different home improvement projects you can take on. A thorough cleaning is the first place you should start, when you want to improve your home's appearance and worth. When you use "traditional" cleansers all you're really doing is pumping a bunch of chemicals into the structure and air of your home.
Because of that, changing to green cleaning methods, is one of the best home improvements you can make. If you are interested in raising the value of your home, this article will show you ways to do that by using green cleaning techniques.
You mean that paper towels can still be found in your kitchen? Knock it off! For decades you have been told that paper towels are terrible for the environment. You could spend the money elsewhere. Instead of using paper towels to clean up your messes, use cloth washcloths. You never have to spend money to get new ones. You probably have plenty of clothing to give away, that can be used to make them.
Any time they get too dirty or start to smell, rinse them out and wash them with your regular laundry. The landfills can be helped with less trash, and your budget can use the extra money that you don't have to spend on paper towels. Of all the places in the house for using chemical-based cleaning supplies, the bathroom is the worst. The air in the bathroom becomes filled with the chemicals, along with the walls, because the ventilation is so bad. Your cleaning solvents should be baking soda, borax and vinegar, instead of chemical-based cleansers, although using them at different times. You won't risk inhaling a harmful chemical and you will still have a clean bathroom. You can also cut down on mildew by always running a fan while you bathe and-if you don't feel too self-conscious about it, leaving the bathroom door open at least a crack to allow the steam to escape.
It is important to never used furniture polish for anything. When people make furniture polish, harmful chemicals are often used. Bad health can arise from using it. It is bad for the air you breathe. They are bad for the structural integrity of whatever you are trying to make look better. It is possible to create green furniture polish by combining lemon juice and olive oil in a 1 to 2 ratio. Use a soft cloth to rub the mixture into your furniture. The structure or item that you are cleaning, and the health of those in your home, will benefit from this natural green mixture. The smell or odor of this mixture is much more pleasant than chemically-based furniture polish typically is.
Looking at the state of a lot of homes, people must not think that having a clean home affects its value. You home's value will increase if you start using environmentally friendly cleaning methods on a regular basis. You improve upon its structural state as well (think of what those cleansers are doing to the structure of the materials that make up your home).
