If you’ve been following along for a week or so you know we are getting ready to move to our tiny house by the beach. A lot of things for us have to change, and one of those is a cabinet of cleaning products. We won’t have room for all the bottles, and I have decided it is time for us to Clean Green.

Clean Green. What Does That Mean?
To clean green means using products made with organic ingredients.
I’ve been researching the best organic cleaning recipes, that are made using minimal ingredients. As much as limited storage space in our tiny house factors in, we are also seeking a very different lifestyle. A lifestyle that will leave a better world for our grandchildren. Limiting chemicals in and around our new home, is one of the changes we are making.
Today I’m going to share diy green cleaning recipes, from my blogging friends. My goal is to put together a list of cleaners that will cover every type of surface or situation.
