Simple and Green: DIY Spring Cleaning Ideas

It’s time for spring cleaning! Follow these simple tips to make your own DIY cleaning supplies, donate unwanted items, and dispose of toxic products safely. 

Cleaning Rags – Repurpose old t-shirts and towels to use as cleaning rags instead of purchasing single use paper towels.

Donations – If you are organizing and have unwanted items, please remember to donate usable textiles, clothing and shoes to local thrift stores. Visit the Zero Waste Marin textiles page for a list of free local resources.

General Household Cleaner – Mix 1 teaspoon of liquid soap, 1 teaspoon of borax or baking soda, a dash of lemon juice or white vinegar, and 1 quart of warm water.

Mildew and Mold Remover – Mix ½ cup of borax with 1 gallon of water and scrub with a nylon scouring pad.

Stainless Steel Cleaner – Clean surface with baking soda and a soft sponge, then rinse with a white vinegar and water solution.

Window Cleaner – Mix ¼ cup of white vinegar with 1 quart of warm water. Use a squeegee to wipe windows for best results.

Want to get rid of your toxic cleaning products? Drop off a variety of items, including bleach-based cleaners and detergents, at the Marin Household Hazardous Waste Facility that serves your community.

Draft 5-Year Paving Plan Road Repair Meeting

In November of 2017, Larkspur voters approved the extension of the Larkspur Street Repair and Essential Services Measurea sales tax that will allow the City to accelerate repairs to our streets, roads, and potholes, with the goal of being able to address these infrastructure needs over the next five years.

Staff is completing the draft Five-Year Paving Plan and will hold an open house meeting from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm on Tuesday, April 10th at the Central Marin Police Authority Community Room at 250 Doherty Drive to share and discuss the plan. Residents are welcome to drop by at any time during the workshop. Staff hopes to finalize the Five-Year Paving Plan in May of this year, with the first year of Measure B paving scheduled for summer 2019.
Residents with questions are encouraged to contact Public Works Director Julian Skinner at jskinner@cityoflarkspur.org.
