In the spirit of my roundup of eco-friendly spring cleaning tools that I published back in March, here's a list of 10 tools that will come in handy during your fall cleaning and household maintenance tasks. With an eye towards indoor air quality and preparing your kitchen for the "busy" season, below you'll find a li' bit of everything ranging from spaghetti-esque scrubbers to DIY mold testing kits to hand soap produced by none other than the Fabulous Beekman Boys


In addition to the below cleaning tools, be sure to check out my 'Back to basics' series of posts where I highlight a handful of natural products that are often the key ingredients in homemade cleaning and laundering solutions. Happy cleaning, folks.
