Instructions: How to Spring Clean With Nontoxic Home-made Products - Environment - GOOD
Tackling spring-cleaning this month? Us too. But there's no sense in doing it if you're going to create a big mess for the planet (and your body) in the process.

Shower spray. Toilet. Stainless steel polish. Marble, granite, or stone countertop cleaner.
