The outdoor rugs that line my garage and mud room get filthy and need a good cleaning every now and again, a cleaning that usually goes beyond just vacuuming. But this cleaning can be done in an eco-friendly way, without the use of harsh chemicals.
Turn a collection of carpet-sample pieces into an eclectic rug for your kitchen or bathroom! This resourceful DIY project can be made with just four materials - some of which may already be in your home.
Preventing allergy causes as opposed to treating the symptoms.

Choosing natural, environmentally friendly flooring is an easy way to keep your home healthy. Choose natural linoleum, cork, sustainable wood, natural wool carpet or tile.
