Christina Strutt of Cabbages & Roses reveals how to have a healthier, ecofriendly home in A Guide to Natural Housekeeping, which is full of advice and information to help you take a more sustainable path. Recycling, reusing, and shopping at farmers’ markets are a good start, but cutting down on the use of poisonous chemicals is just as important--it’s perfectly possible to clean a house using nothing more than lemons, baking soda, vinegar, and plain water. You can apply the methods here not only to cleaning but also to caring for clothes, furniture, and even glassware. Growing your own produce can be very satisfying, and you can use any extras to make preserves, oils, and chutneys using the handy tips and delicious recipes. Make beauty preparations and bath oils, too, for soothing, effective treatments to enhance everyday wellbeing. To become eco-friendly doesn’t require self-sacrifice--just some readjustment.
