Here are some quick and easy steps you can take to ensure your self-storage office is doing its part for Mother Earth:
To make your own Earth-friendly cleaning products, try these recipes:
Windows: Spray with undiluted white vinegar or mix of one cup of vinegar with one cup of water, then wipe clean with a newspaper or paper towel. Avoid streaks by cleaning windows on cloudy days.
Countertops: Try a vinegar and water mixture or add four tablespoons of baking soda to one quart of water. Spray, then wipe clean.
Carpet stains: Soak area with club soda, then dab with a clean, white towel. Use baking soda to deodorize carpet.
Pests: To kill aphids on outdoor roses, mix 1.5 teaspoons of baking soda per pint of water and apply every seven days. To deter ants, wipe counters with vinegar, and then sprinkle dried peppers into the places where they enter. Keep roaches out by spreading bay leaves on shelves and in crevices where they enter from the outside.
