For our fifth posting, we gonna share with you some useful tips.

So let's continue with this posting.

1. Freshen your carpet

  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup borax
  • 10 drops essential oil in lemon
  • Mix the dry ingredients and then add the essential oils
  • Place in the shake container and shake onto the carpet whenever it smells stale
  • Vacuum up carefully as the powder can leak out of the vacuum bag and damage the motor of your vacuum
  • You may want to use "shop vac" to vacuum up most of the powder and then finish with your household vacuum cleaner

2. How take "FAKE CLEAN" your home for the holidays

  • Don't clean the oven ( you don't have enough time. Instead use a spill mat to cover up the mass)
  • Make sure you clean the entry way ( first impressions mean a lot, at least make the entry way presentable)
  • Don't put everyone's coat in your bedroom. It means you have to clean it. Use a room downstairs or one of your children's room, everyone understand a messy child's room
  • Clean the Three T's - Toilet, tabletops and TV's

#TipsGoGreen : Buying Eco-friendly clothing

Assalamualaikum & Salam sejahtera.

For our starting fourth posting, I would like to ask this question

What do you wear?

Synthetic fabrics may require expensive dry cleaning involving potent chemicals that can contribute to air and water pollution when not handled properly. The alternative?

  • Check the label


* Avoid clothing that requires dry cleaning. Choose cotton and wool. Natural fibres are easier to care at home. Often they can be washed in cool water and hung out to dry, reducing chemical use and energy too.

  • Try fabric blends

*Fabrics that are a blend of cotton and synthetic fibers can usually be laundered at home.


  • Dress down

* Fancier outfits seem to require more dry cleaning than casual wear. Encourage your class outfit to implement a "Casual Day" on fridays.

10 Ways to GO GREEN and Save GREEN

Assalamualaikum & Salam Sejahtera

Today we are going to share how to save GREEN using 10 ways.

1. Save energy to save money

  • Set your thermostat a few degrees lower  in the winter and a few degrees higher in the summer to save on heating and cooling costs
  • Install Compact Fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) when your older incandescent bulbs burn out
  • Unplug appliances when you are not using it or use a "smart" power strip that sense appliances are off and cut "phantom" or "vampire" energy use.
  • Wash clothes in cold water whenever possible. As much as the 85% the energy used to machine-wash clothes goes to heating the water.
  • Use a drying rack or clothesline to save the energy otherwiseused during machine drying.

2. Save water to save money

  • Take shorter showers to reduce water use. This will lower your water and heating bills too.
  • Install a low-flow showerhead. They don't cost much, and the water and energy savings can quickly pay back your investment.
  • Make sure you have a faucet aerator on each faucet. These inexpensive appliances conserve heat and water, while keeping water pressure high.
  • Plant drought-tolerant native plants in your garden. Many plants need minimal watering. Find out which occur naturally in your area.

3. Less gas = more money + better health

  • Walk or bike to work. This saves on gas and parking costs while improving your cardiovascular health and reducing your risk of obesity.
  • Consider telecommuting if you live far from your work. Or move closer. Even if this means paying more rent, it could save you money in the long term.
  • Lobby your local government to increase spending on sidewalks and bike lanes. With little cost, these improvements can pay huge dividends in bettering your health and reducing traffic.

4. Eat smart

  • If you eat meat, add one meatless meal a week. Meat costs a lot at the store-and it's even more expensive when you consider the related environmental and health costs.
  • Buy locally raised, humane, and organic meat, eggs, and dairy whenever you can. Purchasing from local farmerskeeps money in the local economy.
  • Watch videos about why local food and sustainable seafood are so great.
  • Whatever your diet, eat low on the food chain [pdf]. This is especially true for seafood.

This video show how to eat smart plus diet  with the healthy ways.

5. Skip the bottoled water

  • Use a water filter to purify tap water instead of buying bottled water. Not only is bottled water expensive, but itgenerates large amounts of container waste.
  • Bring a reusable water bottle, preferably aluminum rather than plastic, with you when traveling or at work.
  • Check out this short article for the latest on bottled water trends.

6. Think before you buy

  • Go online to find new or gently used secondhand products. Whether you've just moved or are looking to redecorate, consider a service like craigslist or FreeSharing to track down furniture, appliances, and other items cheaply or for free.
  • Check out garage sales, thrift stores, and consignment shops for clothing and other everyday items.
  • Watch a video about what happens when you buy things. Your purchases have a real impact, for better or worse.

7. Borrow instead of buying

  • Borrow from libraries instead of buying personal books and movies. This saves money, not to mention the ink and paper that goes into printing new books.
  • Share power tools and other appliances. Get to know your neighbors while cutting down on the number of things cluttering your closet or garage.

8. Buy smart

  • Buy in bulk. Purchasing food from bulk bins can save money and packaging.
  • Wear clothes that don't need to be dry-cleaned. This saves money and cuts down on toxic chemical use.
  • Invest in high-quality, long-lasting products. You might pay more now, but you'll be happy when you don't have to replace items as frequently (and this means less waste).

9. Keep electronics out of the trash

  • Keep your cell phones, computers, and other electronics as long as possible.
  • Donate or recycle them responsibly when the time comes. E-waste contains mercury and other toxics and is a growing environmental problem.
  • Recycle your cell phone.
  • Ask your local government to set up an electronics recycling and hazardous waste collection event.

10. Make your own cleaning supplies

  • The big secret: you can make very effective, non-toxic cleaning products whenever you need them. All you need are a few simple ingredients like baking soda, vinegar, lemon, and soap.
  • Making your own cleaning products saves money, time, and packaging-not to mention your indoor air quality.
