going green: 10 Tips for Living Greener - 06/12/08 11:41 AM
One: Ditch the Paper Towels!Instead, pick up machine washable micro-fiber cloth towels to use all around the house. Thousands of tiny little fibers literally grip and hold onto the dirt and bacteria.
Two: Java ScrubDon't toss your used coffee grinds into the trash. First, spoon some warm grinds into your hands and mix it with your favorite hand soap and scrub away. The grinds will exfoliate dead skin off your hands and clean your hands. Scatter the remaining grinds around your evergreen shrubs and trees - it's an energizing fertilizer.
