It's easy being green

So, as one of goals this year I decided I needed to start doing more to be more green. And on cont rare to what Mr. Kermit says, it's quite easy to be green. Ok that was incredibly lame but what the hell right?
I have been really good lately at saving all my paper, now I just needed to haul it all down to the paper recycling bin at Smith's. I've been trying to be better about not leaving lights on, and not letting the water just run when it's not necessary. Now, you guys are going to be totally impressed... ready... I made my own Windex/glass cleaner!!
Hey, I was quite proud of myself! I looked up how to make it and tweaked it to fit what I had. I used it, and to be honest it works fabulously!!! And smelled pretty descent. I feel like so good about myself!! Your welcome Earth!! :)

Here's my 'recipe':
(This is for one standard size glass cleaner bottle)
1/2 Cup of White Vinegar

1 tsp Lemon Juice
4 tsp Dish Washing Detergant

(Mine was Cascade Gel, lemon scent)
Fill the rest with water.

It said you could add food coloring to make it a color, but why? Also, I saw that some had rubbing alochol but I felt like that would leave streaks. Anyways, I was pretty proud of myself! Also, I decided that every other month-ish I am going to donate to charity. January was St. Jude's in Memphis!
