Eco-Friendly, Quick Cleaning Tips

Cleaning is one of my least favorite things to do, so I like to make it a quick as possible.

Here are some tips:
  • Get rid of clutter, because it will take less time to dust.
  • Choose sustainable bamboo or wood floors or locally harvested stone or ceramic for your floors instead of environmentally unsound carpet. Payoff is faster and less strenuous vacuuming...and the floors get super clean. Even washing the floors is much easier than the steam cleaners needed for carpeting.
  • Use microfiber cloth and lambswool for dusting, as they naturally collect and hold dust--no need for unhealthy dust removers.
  • Buy the best vacuum you can afford, with a HEPA filter, especially if you have carpets. Top quality vacuums (like Meile) make cleaning faster because of a superior sucking action. Plus with a HEPA filter, you trap the microscopic dirt and particulates and are left with cleaner air.

Great post! I heard a statistic about getting rid of clutter, and that just by decluttering, 80% of housework could be eliminated. Talk about motivating! :)
