Happy First Day of Spring! I've been spending my days outside with the kids. They play in the backyard and I sit in my Adirondack chair and read L.M. Montgomery novels on my kindle. It's pretty idyllic.
As the weather has been ridiculously warm (over 80 today!) I've really been in a spring cleaning mood. This has been very good for the children's new playroom. It's also been good for the state of my home in general!
One thing I've noticed though, is how much I use my unpaper towels in a day. I easily go through 3, 4 or even 5, and currently I use them only in the kitchen and for wiping up random spills in the house. I don't currently use them in the bathroom or for mirrors (although I'm planning on starting to do so when I get around to cleaning those, lol). A deep clean of my kitchen used 2 unpaper towels.
But how many paper ones would I have used? 10, 20? How many rolls would I go through during spring cleaning? 2, 3, 4? More?
Here's my challenge for you. Pick one room in your house, the kitchen, the dining room, the living room or the bathroom, that you will only use cloth in. Maybe you can only commit to using a cloth dusting rag instead of paper towel with pledge. Maybe you're ready to cut paper towels in the kitchen. And maybe you're ready to get over your fear of the germs lurking on your rag after you clean the bathroom. Whatever it is, for spring cleaning, use cloth!
To help you out, I'm giving you two things! For the next week (until 3/27) unpaper towels are 10% off, and there's a coupon code for free shipping on anything in the shop (Code: SPRING2012)! Happy Cleaning!
