· Vow to keep the fresh air flowing and the dust bunnies to a minimum. To provide the safest household cleaning options, every cleaner sold at Whole Foods Market is labeled with the Eco-Scale™ rating system, allowing shoppers to purchase products with the level of earth-conscious ingredients they prefer.


· For chemical-free and budget-friendly cleaning, try using 365 Everyday Value® Organic Distilled White Vinegar in multiple ways, like:
*Steeping the rind of four oranges in one cup of distilled white vinegar for two weeks to make your own all-purpose cleaner. The orange oil contains a natural solvent that can cut through grease.
*Mix 20-30 drops of 365 Everyday Value® 100% Pure Lavender Essential Oil with one-gallon of vinegar for fabric softener or 3-5 drops with an unscented detergent for a very aromatic load of laundry.

    I am in no way ashamed to admit that Annie’s fruit snacks are my favorite post-lunch sweet treat. I do wish they came in a large bag so that I could divvy them up myself into reusable containers. I do hate going through all of that packaging. They are so good though!

    nice tips. I for one love the coconut oil for a hair mask idea. So far I’ve only been using it as a skin moisturizer.
