Time for Spring Cleaning! - 3 Tips for a “Green” Spring Cleaning This Season

We like the idea of spring cleaning for several reasons. First of all, it is a time to get organized – and who doesn’t need to do that, right? Second of all, spring cleaning can be a great time to “go green” in a wide variety of ways. With so much focus being put on the idea of being earth friendly and “going green” right now, especially because it is Earth Week, we are providing our favorite tips for a green spring cleaning this season.

Tip # 1 – Paper Recycling

If you have accumulated stacks of bills (those which you have already paid of course), receipts, outdated magazines, old newspapers, etc., now is the perfect time to get rid of them. Don’t just throw them away, though. Recycle them! Find out information about paper recycling by checking with your local county public works department. They can help you with information about local curbside recycling programs as well as community drop-off centers. Additionally, you can look under "Recycling" in your local yellow pages.

Tip # 2 – Use Green Cleaning Products

Once you have made it past the de-cluttering stage, it is time to get down & dirty and start cleaning. In terms of being green and not producing even more waste, be sure to steer clear of using paper towels. Instead, you can use old worn-out t-shirts or rags to wipe down windows and other surfaces. Using natural cleaning products is your best option, many of which you can make very inexpensively with things you already have in your pantry such as vinegar and baking soda. If you do not want to make your own products, look for biodegradable and plant-based products on the market such as Clorox's new line of “Green Works” items.

Tip # 3 – Spruce Up Your Room with Pre-Owned Furniture from AMC Liquidators

If you want to give your living space a new, fresh look to go along with your spring cleaning, why not get a few new pieces of furniture? First, if you will be getting rid of old furniture, make sure to donate it or give it away rather than putting it in the trash. Donating your furniture keeps it out of a landfill and also creates a tax deduction for you! When you are looking for new furniture pieces to replace the ones you are leaving behind, try furniture liquidators like AMC Liquidators. You can get quality pre-owned furniture at deeply discounted prices for any room in your home. While you are organizing and de-cluttering your home, check out the filing cabinets, book shelves, and other organization solutions offered at AMC Furniture Outlet!
