Spring Cleaning: a green cleaning routine

Ah, Saturday morning. This might be my favorite time of day, on my favorite day of the week. Mrs. GGC here – writing this post from my preferred lunch spot, noshing on a delicious vegetarian burger and sweet potato fries. YUM. But, that’s not why I’m writing this post.

Soap Nuts: A Multipurpose Product

Remember that post we wrote about soap nuts a few days back? Well, let me tell you something – we are in LOVE with these babies. Not only are they dirt cheap, and great for the environment and your overall health compared to other cleaning products, but they really, really work. So far, we have had much success in using soap nuts to wash our clothes. They come out super soft and fresh, much better than the dried out clothes and towels and sheets that traditional detergent often produces. Today, I noticed that we were running low on window cleaner. Instead of picking up a new bottle, I decided to use the soap nuts to make my own. What happened next was awesome.
