Tip of the Day for the 18″ American Doll Collector

Posted on by Tori Hall

April 22nd is Earth Day, 2011 and this year’s theme is A Billion Acts of Green®. Now is a good time to make a commitment to being “Green”.  Did you know that many of the cleaning products found in our homes are actually not good for the environment? Why not try some “greener” alternatives made with basic ingredients you may already have in your pantry. Keep your house clean and the environment safe…sounds good, right?

Here are some basic ingredients you will need:

Baking Soda: cleans and deodorizes

Borax: cleans, deodorizes and disinfects

White Vinegar or Lemon Juice: cuts grease, freshens

Here are some easy ways to CLEAN GREEN!

Dishwasher Detergent: Mix 1 Tbs Borax and 1 Tbs Baking soda

Put it into the soap dispenser in your dishwasher and run as usual.

General Household Cleaner: ¼ C Baking Soda, ½ C Borax, ½ C White Vinegar, 1 gal water

For extra scrubbing, add baking soda to a damp cloth

Window Cleaner: 2 tsp white vinegar, 1 qt. warm water

Mix together and use immediately

Silver Polish: 1 qt warm water, 1 tsp Baking soda, 1 tsp Salt, and a small piece of aluminum foil. Mix together in a shallow dish, lay foil on bottom and watch your silver shine!
