Green Cleaning Tips and Tricks

Outdoor Green Cleaning

April 17, 2012

Green products used for cleaning outdoors help reduce exposure to harmful chemicals.  They also avoid killing the flowers in your gardens.  Some of these cleaners may be hard to find, and some may not be exactly what their labeling makes them appear to be. Before purchasing any products, log on to to find lists of environmentally-friendly cleaning products.

 A pressure washer with plain tap water is more than adequate to remove built-up dirt and discoloration on your home. Heavy jobs may require a bit more cleansing power. If necessary, step up to a phosphate-free detergent to really bring out the clean.

When it comes to cleaning gutters, the leaves and other debris that was laying in the gutter make great compost, particularly if it is a little damp from.   

To clean windows, use a vinegar/water mixture in a spray bottle.  Wipe off windows with newspaper.
