My featured Merit Badge Awardee of the Week is … Melissa Jackson!!!
Melissa Jackson (#3639) has received a certificate of achievement in Cleaning Up for earning a Beginner Level Going Green Merit Badge!
“I have been mostly green for a while, but after doing some extra research on this subject, there are certain things that I would use “sometimes” if I needed to, bleach being the number-one culprit. I have started using fresh lemon, baking soda, and salt as abrasives and whiteners. I made a green category on my Pinterest board as a reference for good green and homemade cleaners without chemicals for my reference. It also has some upcycled projects for useful things I can use for storage, etc. around my house. I am also loving the many uses for vinegar—it eliminates lots of nasty odors!
I am loving the fresh scent of lemons as cleaners—everything feels just as clean and I feel better knowing everything is biodegradeable. My daughter just moved into a new place, so I made her a little starter kit of natural cleaning supplies. I packaged up some basics, along with the upcycled cans she can use for storing things in her laundry room.”
