You can be kind to our environment simply by using up fewer resources when you clean. Here are five ways to do that, according to cleaning expert Don Aslett in his book, The Cleaning Encyclopedia, that are followed by Dial-A-Maid Cleaning Service in Evanston, Il. 60201.
1. Use concentrated Cleaners. They use less packaging and are cheaper, too. Recycle your empties.
2.Clean with resusable products. Use cloths that you can launder when your through, instead of paper towels. Be careful when disposing of cloths you have used with hazardous chemicals, read the manufacturer's label for disposal instructions.
3. Don't put it off. More accumulated dirt means that more energy, cleaning supplies, and water will be needed to do the job.
4. Use energy efficiently. Use cold water when you can, as when you run the garbage disposal. Make sure you have a full load before you use the dishwasher, washer, or dryer. Make sure all the clutter is picked up before you turn on the vacuum cleaner.
5. Use only what you need. Cleaners, like laundry detergent or floor cleaner, work best when they are mixed with a specific amount of water. Follow the instructions on the package carefully.
