With Spring in full swing, there are multiple social events for many on the agenda: wedding showers, baby showers, house warming parties, dinner invites, graduations and more. We've always been big on giving practical things that we know our friends will really use, and last week we suggested giving a basket of green cleaners as a housewarming gift. But no matter what the occasion, it's an inexpensive great way to get your friends going green!
Giving cleaning supplies is a great gift to give. It isn't as intrusive as you think and doesn't come off like an Orbitz commercial (Dirty house? Clean it up!). There's many people out there looking to go green with their cleaning but are unsure of where to start. Include index cards describing the ratios of mixtures to create and they'll be converts in no time! Here's a few items that make it into our own gift baskets:
• 1 gallon bottle white vinegar
• Extra large bag of baking soda
• Bag of lemons
• 1 fresh lavender plant
• 1 fresh basil plant
• Small box of kosher salt
• 2 plastic spray bottles
• Inexpensive toothbrush
• Stiff bristle brush
• Pop up sponges
• Pack of white dish towels
What would you add to the list? All of the items above come in under $25 and make a great gift for almost anyone!
