If your home is where the chemicals are, then check out a new online resource on how to green your living space

If your home is where the chemicals are, then check out a new online resource on how to green your living space. With tips from "Make the Connection: Health and Environment, 2002," learn to reduce and eliminate chemical exposure from toxic cleaning ingredients, common household pesticides and pest-control products.

There are great ideas for non-toxic cleaning and pest-control remedies. Got a lipstick stain on your collar? Try rubbing it with cold cream or shortening to dissolve colour. Then rinse it in a solution of washing soda and warm water to remove grease, followed by a wash in soapy water.

Or how about one of everybody's worst bathroom nightmares-mildew? Combine one-half cup vinegar, one-half cup borax and warm water in a spray bottle. Spray and scrub off with nylon scouring pad. Three downloadable booklets (total 74 pages) are available at herc.org/maketheconnection from the Health and Environmental Resource Center in Colorado.
