Rejoice! The season of renewal, rebirth, and Magic Erasers is once again here!
As is tradition during the first days of spring, I've scoured and searched for the newest, niftiest, and most useful household cleaning products/tools with a keen eye for the low-waste/reusable, the handmade/American-made, and the nontoxic/fume-free. I think you'll like what I came up with.
Feeling frugal? Keep in mind that the below items play nicely with common pantry/DIY cleaning staples such as baking soda, lemon juice, and white vinegar so feel free to mix it up a bit as you divide and conquer.
