Environmental Super Hero Project for March - Keeping it Green

The week before Spring Break will find us scrubbing up a storm. Our environmental super heros will tackle the cubbies, lunch room, and our classroom with our school-made natural cleansers. Remember, we could really use some torn up rags and sponges. Spray bottles would also be really useful. I will supply all the ingredients for our cleaning solutions. Thank you!
Here are some of the recipes we will be using, just in case the urge to spring clean hits you too!
All Purpose Surface Cleaner Mix together equal parts white vinegar and salt. Scrub surfaces with a natural cleaning cloth.
Disinfectant Mix 1/2 cup of borax powder with 1 gallon of hot water. Add a few drops of fragrant essential oil such as thyme, rosemary, or lavender. Store the mixture in a labeled spray bottle.
No-Streak Glass Cleaner For sparkling mirrors and windows, combine 1/4 cup undiluted white vinegar, 1 tbsp cornstarch, and 1 quart warm water. Divide into spray bottles. For a lint-free shine, wipe dry with a sheet of crumpled newspaper or a coffee filter.
