green vase cleaner

i don't usually love showcasing my dirty dishes, but for the sake of a new green clean trick, i will make an exception. 

you know how sometimes vases get a little grungy?  i wash them after my flowers fade, but still there is that little something left in there clouding up the glass.

well, my mom recently told me about the perfect thing to take care of this problem, and all you need is warm water and a little borax {seen below modeled by one of my favorite bowls...have i told you that my mother-in-law makes all of our dishes?  no?  good...now i have a new post idea (: }

i used about a quarter of a cup of borax.

mix this into your vase and add warm water.

scrub your little heart out   let it sit for a bit if you so desire. rinse, dry, and prepare yourself for the upcoming sparkle.

maybe this is only exciting for me b/c now i have a clean vase, but i think it's a pretty neat trick.

happy green cleaning!

  1. I use borax in my homemade laundry detergent :) Never thought to use it in a vase... I'll have to try it :)
