Spring Cleaning, Paleoista Style
An article in the Huffington Post did a great job at highlighting some natural ways to spring clean your house without toxic chemicals that could prove to be harmful to you, your family and your pets.
Some of the top tips include:
–Adding a splash of vinegar to your wash is a great alternative to fabric softener (reminder- we don’t want to ingest vinegar on the Paleo diet, but using it for cleaning purposes is fair game!)
-Using black tea is as a window cleaner; the tannic acid in the tea helps dissolve dirt and grease on the windows.
-Incorporate citrus into your regime by cutting a grapefruit in half, sprinkling with salt and squeeze the juice into the tub to let it scrub on its own; then you just rinse and enjoy the great smell left behind.
-Unclogging the drain with vinegar and baking soda. (Again- if it can unclog a drain, do you really want to drink it?)
