NEST: More green cleaning options

The fact that I'm just now posting this is indicative of the insanity that is life right now. It's just so busy! I thought summer was supposed to be a little slower paced, but I am clearly wrong.

On Sunday, I gave my apartment a deep cleaning treatment, but I already feel like I want to do it again.

On nights like this, when I don't get home until after 11 p.m., and I still have to make my lunch and manage tasks for the next day, I feel panicked when I can't get the dishwasher emptied or my laundry put away. I woke up this morning and thought - ah, I just want to clean this place! And then I realized that, in fact, it didn't really need to be cleaned, it's just that act of doing it that makes me feel like things are under control.



But don't you agree? When the little things are in order, I just feel like life in general is more in order. I recently found this great article from Martha Stewart on green cleaning solutions. We've posted other green cleaning options before, but I especially like how simple this version is.  The ingredients are basic and don't require a trip to the grocery, which is more than I can say about the Pledge wood cleaner I've been using.

Have you tried out green cleaning options?


  1. I totally feel like life is in order more when things are picked up, which is part of why for so long I think I've felt such discord. We've outgrown our space and feel cramped. The place is always cluttered. Ugh...

    I do love these green cleaning solutions, though. I've been looking for some good concoctions to use around the house. Real Simple is good, too. : )

  2. I haven't used any green cleaning solutions yet, but we're going to start. I actually just bought stuff to make toothpaste and our own laundry detergent to save some money. I'm super excited about it.
