Carpet cleaning – One of the best, green, easy, quick, cheap and efficient ways to clean your carpet is with baking soda.

Afterward, scrub with a toothbrush or larger brush, rinse with water and wipe the tiles with dry cloth. When cleaning the tiles with this solution, wear old clothes because of bleach. Another green tip to clean your tiles and grout is with a mixture of white vinegar and baking soda.
