Earth Friendly Concoctions

On Monday afternoon, a special guest from the Allen County Solid Waste Management District taught us how to make earth friendly concoctions to use to clean our homes. We also learned what household hazardous waste is and how to properly dispose of it.

Here is a green recipe for Glass Cleaner from ACSWMD:
1 qt warm water
1/4 cup vinegar (or 2 tbsp. lemon juice)

Tip: use newspaper instead of rags to avoid streaks on glass
