Green Alternatives for Cleaning your Q Lofts Condo

Tue, 23 Apr 2013 by Polycorp

Going green allows you to save money, energy and resources all while staying healthy. When it comes to cleaning the green way, you’re also able to keep harmful chemicals out of the environment. For the environmentally conscious, here are 14 common household items you can use to clean your new condos in Halifax NS, Q Lofts.

  1. Use microfiber cloths or old t-shirts and rags instead of paper towels.
  2. Polish brass and copper with ketchup, lemon juice or taco sauce. The acids in these products eat through the oxidation of the metals.

  5. Substitute hydrogen peroxide for bleach to wash your white laundry.
  6. Hang your laundry to dry instead of using the clothes dryer.
  7. Use white vinegar, water and newspaper to clean your new condos in Halifax NS windows and mirrors. This mixture leaves windows and mirrors without streaks.
