So many cleaners and chemicals are unhealthy. Use baking soda and vinegar to clean bathrooms and your kitchen sink. A clean rag dipped in hot water will clean your counters and a steam mop will get your floors clean and sanitized with no residue. A pot simmering with water, cinnamon and vanilla makes a great air freshener. It's good for your home, health and the earth!
1/4 cup of vinegar with a few drops of olive oil is a natural furniture polish with no harmful scent or chemicals!
Bright blue yoga mat is lying on my bedroom floor and no matter what happens I don't pick it up. It reminds me to keep my room clean and whether I have worked out or not that day. Also its really comfy so currently I am sitting on it while browsing the internet after my workout.
Make your yoga mat a piece of furniture (multifunctional as a seat and a regular guilt trip!)
