Tuesday's Take on Trends: "Green Cleaning"

Hi all! Hope you had a great labor day weekend. We got to spend time at the lake with close friends, and had a blast! I had a doctors appointment and am now able to walk, so of course that was the icing on the cake for my weekend. 
I have been on interest waaaaaayyyy too much these past 6 weeks, and keep seeing "pins" about cleaning in a "green" way (still not 100% sure exactly what green even means these days). I hadn't given it much thought until cleaning the bath tub a couple of days ago. We have been trying all different cleaners because each one completely fills our little apartment with fumes, and Colin and I both end up with headaches and sore throats. So, I thought I'd do more research.
It seems like vinegar is the magical multi-purpose cleaner I have been missing out on. Colin and I went to the store and got a huge thing of white vinegar for about $1.50. We are going to try it out! I will link articles from some blogs that I have been getting green cleaning ideas from. These ladies have lots and lots of good ideas, not just involving vinegar.
