With all the outdoor adventures that come with the spring time, also comes spring cleaning season! The weather is getting warmer each week, making it time to put away those heavy jackets and winter clothes. Spring cleaning your Sagamore apartment is a great way to start off the warm weather months! If you plan on diving in and cleaning winter blues and beginning spring with a fresh start, we have some tips for our residents on eco-friendly cleaning this spring!
Skip the Swiffer: Swiffers and other similar cleaning products are super convenient when cleaning your apartment. However, the disposable bottoms create more waste and aren’t very environmentally friendly. By sticking to a good old fashioned reusable mop, can help reduce the amount of waste we create.
Hang Dry Laundry: With spring here and the warm weather taking over, it is easy to hang dry your clean clothes instead of throwing them in the washer! When pulling out the spring and summer wardrobe and getting ready for some heavy loads of laundry after they have been sitting around for months, choose to hang dry them! Dryers use up a ton of energy so by taking a break from it and drying your clothes either outside or on a drying rack indoors.
Homemade Cleaning Products: By making your own cleaning products, you can help eliminate the use of harmful chemicals which is good for both the environment and you! There are several different combinations you can create that will eliminate stains and odors just as good as store-bought brands.
