Get Green With Your Cleaning This Spring!

We've put together some tips to help you be more eco-friendly with your cleaning and laundry!

We take the environment very seriously here at Home and Dry. You’ve probably already heard about our new eco-friendly ‘Wet Cleaning’ services that provide a greener alternative to dry cleaning that produces the same results as a standard dry clean service.

With Spring in full swing, we’ve created an eco-friendly cleaning blog to give you some green cleaning tips to help you with your Spring cleaning tasks this year!

Get rid of toxic cleaning products

There are lots of green cleaning products on supermarket shelves that work just as well as standard cleaning products that are known to be more harmful to the environment, as well as causing skin irritations and polluting the home environment we live in.

Natural tip: Vinegar and baking soda can be used to clean almost anything. Mix in a little warm water with either of these and bingo! You've got yourself an all-purpose cleaner!

Clean Indoor Air Naturally

Plug-in air fresheners are widely used in households to get rid of any unsavoury smells or scent the air with a chosen perfume. There are however studies that suggest that chemicals used in artificial air fresheners could be damaging to our health. Make sure you open windows in your home regularly to let fresh air pass through your home.

Natural Tip: Baking cookies or bread or something equally as delicious acts as a natural air freshener!

Keep things simple

If you are planning on redecorating or redesigning the interior of your home, consider which surfaces and materials are easiest to clean naturally. For example, wooden floors or tiled floors are easier to clean and keep dust-free by sweeping or mopping with eco-friendly soapy water. Carpets are more likely to attract dust mites and require industrial action to keep clean over time – so if you are planning on making any changes to your home, think about how you can save time and hassle by making your home greener and easier to clean!
