Spring is just around the corner, and with the change of seasons comes the perfect opportunity to refresh your home and embrace eco-friendly practices. At Soak iT Up, we believe that sustainable living starts at home, and that's why we've put together this guide to help you clean up your space while reducing waste and environmental impact.

  1. Swap Out Disposable Products: Say goodbye to single-use paper towels and cleaning wipes, and switch to reusable options like our Soak iT Up Cloths. Made from Swedish dishcloth material, these cloths are durable, absorbent, and can be composted at the end of their life.

  2. DIY Cleaning Solutions: Instead of buying chemical-laden cleaning products, why not make your own? Simple ingredients like vinegar, baking soda, and lemon juice can be used to create effective and eco-friendly cleaning solutions for your home like this one:

    Homemade All-Purpose Cleaner

    • 1/2 c white vinegar  
    • 2 Tbsp baking soda
    • 10 drops tea tree, lavender, or lemon essential oil (or your favorite that have disinfectant properties)

  3. Declutter Responsibly: As you tidy up your home, consider donating items that are in good condition to charity or thrift stores. For items that can't be donated, look for recycling programs in your area. Here is a list from Martha Stewart of the best places to donate clothes.

  4. Clean Green: Opt for environmentally friendly cleaning products, such as our Soak iT Up Sheet Happens Eco Laundry Detergent. Formulated with plant-based ingredients, this detergent is tough on stains but gentle on the planet. Bonus no messy plastic liquid detergent jugs or candy-looking pods in plastic bags. 

  5. Conserve Water: Be mindful of your water usage while cleaning use a bucket. Use water in bucket to flush toilet after cleaning. Use left over water to water plants or cleaning outdoor areas, and fix any leaks or drips to prevent water waste. 

  6. Go Digital: When organizing your home office or workspace, consider going digital with your files and paperwork. This not only reduces clutter but also saves trees.

  7. Support Sustainable Brands: Choose to support brands that prioritize sustainability, like Soak iT Up. Share your eco-cleaning with a friend by sending Soak iT Up Clards—greetings that clean up—literally. By purchasing eco-friendly products, you're voting with your dollar for a greener future.
