In a pinch for time and need your clothes dry now?
Grab a fluffy dry towel and throw it in with your wet clothes in the dryer. The dry towel will help draw out the moisture from your wet clothes accelerating the drying time and saving energy!
We recommend using a towel that matches the color of your clothes so you don’t have to worry about the towel changing the color of your clothes or your clothes changing the color of your towel.
This is most effective the first 15-20 minutes of drying time. After 15-20 minutes pull the towel out and start the dryer again and your load should be done drying in 15-20 minutes (times will vary depending on the load size.). This also helps reduce wrinkles in your clothes!
Ta da! You just got a little greener and a little smarter. Now go tell your friends and family how to dry clothes fast with a dry towel!

Cleaning your microwave is awkward and requires a lot of elbow grease. The dried crusty food is difficult to remove. Cleaning your microwave the Be Green way is quick and cleans much better without using any chemicals! So grab a lemon, a microwave safe bowl and a dry towel.
Cut the lemon in half
Fill the bowl with 1/2 cup water
Squeeze the lemon juice into the water and put the lemons in the bowl
Place bowl in microwave and set to 3 minutes push start
The lemon water will boil and create steam in the microwave.
After 3 minutes carefully remove the bowl from microwave (it will be VERY HOT)
The steam created will soften the dried crusty food.
Take your towel and just wipe the stuck on food away.
If any tough spots left dip your towel into the lemon water and clean it up with the lemon water!
This method is so quick and convenient you’ll wish you’ve learned this years ago!
Keep Your Carpet Looking New Without Using Lots Of Water
We use very little water compared to regular carpet cleaning services. On average, we use about 3-5 gallons of water to clean an entire home. Which means, your carpets will not be saturated after a Be Green cleaning. It’s important not to let water absorb into the padding of your carpets because this creates a perfect environment for mold spores to develop. These spores will just keep on growing FOREVER. In addition to mold’s aggravating effects on allergies and asthma,
