Walks to pick up garbage

I regularly walk in my neighborhood, with three cloth bags, to pick up any garbage I see on sidewalks or in the street. I bring everything home and dispose of it properly. Plastic bags are rinsed, dried and taken to the grocery store, garbage and recyclable items are placed in Mpls. City containers and food waste is placed in our organics cars.

    How have you modified your cleaning routine to make sure you aren't using disposable wipes? Are you satisfied with the results?

    I use only micro cloths, rags or paper towels for cleaning.  I've done this for years!!!!
