I totally suck at being green. My life is going 0 to 90 most of the time so I don’t have time to re-invent the wheel at my house. I really rely on companies to make my life greener. However, I do like the idea of not shaving my legs…ever. 😉
That being said, I love coming up with quick-to-use ideas for things that I might not have on hand. It doesn’t seem to matter how organized I am, I swear I forget something from the store! You’ve probably already heard these, but you know like:
- No buttermilk – use milk and vinegar
- No celery – throw in some celery seed
- No toothpaste – use baking soda
- Cleaning windows with newspaper instead of paper towels.
So, I gotta kick out of that Yahoo Shine article 12 alternative uses for coffee filters by Lori Bongiorno. A lot of them were pretty handy. Some, I probably wouldn’t try, but hey – I’m a firm believer in “…chewing up the meat and spitting out the bones.”
Do you use household products for something other than what it’s used for? I’d love some more ideas!
