Warmer weather means pastel colors, Capri pants, manning the grill... and a bunch of chores collectively known as “spring cleaning.” This year, we’re focusing on putting some green in our clean, so we asked top eco-experts how they tackle chores the environmentally-friendly way. That means less waste, fewer chemicals and a healthier household all around!
Less Stuff = Less Cleaning “Before you pick up a broom or start any cleaning project, take some time to de-clutter,” recommends Dorothy Breininger, founder of DorothytheOrganizer.com and contributor to A&E's hit reality show, Hoarders. “The less stuff you have in a room, the less time it takes to clean it -- and the fewer cleaning supplies and products you’ll need to get the job done. So rather than clean, clean, clean, I say delete, delete, delete -- and donate, which is also green!”
