Many ingredients found in typical household cleaners are known hormone disruptors, car- cinogens, neurotoxins, and other irritating poisons. Diethanolamine? Nitrobenzene? Butyl cellosolve? If I Can't pronounce it, I won't clean with it. These toxins are harmful to our bodies and the environment. Many end up in our water supply, damaging the ecosystem and cost- ing thousands of dollars to treat each year. With spring cleaning right around the corner. I would like to share some of my favorite nontoxic cleaning recipes with you. These solutions are healthier for your family, your home, and the environ- ment. They are also easy to make. inexpensive, and effective! For an all-purpose cleaner, fill an empty spray bottle with equal parts distilled white vinegar and water. This can be kept on hand for countertops, highchair trays, toys, floors, and other surfaces. The vinegar smell will go away when dry. For windows, fill a spray bottle with water and quarter cup of distilled white vinegar or lemon juice. Recycle your newspapers in place of paper towels for a streak-free finish. To treat household areas with mold or mildew, mix a few drops of tea tree oil and a cup of water in a spray bottle. Mix together two parts olive oil to one part lemon juice for a natural furniture polish. Sprinkle carpet with baking soda. then vacuum, to get rid of pet or other odors. To clean heirloom or fine china, dissolve borax in a sink full of hot water. Keep a spray bottle of hydrogen peroxide on hand and an- other filled with distilled white vinegar (don't mix the two in one bottle). For a disinfecting spray for vegetables and surfaces, spritz with one, then the other, then wipe clean. To clean your toilet, pour one part baking soda to four parts white vinegar rata the toilet basin. Let it sit for fifteen to thirty minutes, then scrub and flush. For a clogged drain, pour a half cup of baking soda down the drain, followed by a half cup of distilled white vinegar. Allow the mixture to fizz. and then flush wi hot water. To treat moldy tile grout on bathroom walls, fill a spray bottle with one-half cup hydrogen peroxide and one cup water. Spray orito moldy areas, let sit for an hour, then rinse off. Clean regularly for increase effectiveness. Combine one-half quart of hot water with equal parts baking soda and lemon juice (about one teaspoon each). Put in a spray bottle for a healthy air freshener. Certain plants are another easy, effective way to clean your home by purifying indoor air of common pollutants. Synthetic building materials, furniture upholstery, floor stains, paint, cleaning products. and other fumes become trapped inside causing potential health is- sues. To combat this, try placing an assortment of the following plants around your home. (Check with your vet to see which plants may be poisonous to pets if they chew on the leaves.) The following group of fifteen are some of the most effective at cleaning indoor air: Common Name Bamboo palm (reed palm) Chinese evergreen Elephant ear philodendron English ivy Ficus (weeping fig) Gerberfi daisy Golden pathos (Devil's ivy) Heartleaf philodendron Janet Craig Marginata Mother-in-law's tongue (snake plant) Peace lily Pot mum Spider plant Warneckei Latin (Proper) Name Chamaedorea seifrizii Aglaonema modestum Philodendron domesticum Hedera helix Ficus benjamina Gerbera jamesonii Epipiremnum aureum Phildendron scandens Dracaena deremensis Dracaena marginata Sansevieria laurentii Spathiphyllum "Mauna Loa'" Chrysanthemum norifolium Chlorophytum comosum Dracaena deremensis For more nontoxic cleaning solutions and healthy living tips, check out Sara Snow's Fresh Living by Sara Snow or Green Housekeeping by Ellen Sandbeck.

"When I first heard Antje I knew I was witnessing something very special. She creates an en- tire, detailed world in verse, and takes you there with beautiful and understated melody." - Neil Dorfsman, the music producer of Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Sting. Born in Germany and raised on the East Coast, Duvekot first began recording songs for her friends in Delaware-on cassette tapes. At age 18 she entered and won an open mc competition at the Sam Adams Brewpub in Phila- delphia, but it was the release of her album "Big Dream Boule- vard," that was named "#1 Folk Release of 2006" by the Boston Globe and placed in the "Top Ten Releases of the Year" by NPR's- Folk Alley, that truly solidified Duvekot's residence in the es- teemed world of American folk music. "This is a brilliant, brilliant album," says former Rolling Stone music editor Dave Marsh. "I have had this reaction once in the last 10 years and thatwas the first time I heard Patty Griffin?' Since the album's impressive release, Antje has won top songwriting awards including the "Grand Prize" in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition. Kerrvi.lle. Texas's prestigious "Best New Folk Award," and in Boston, one of the nation's top music markets, she won the Bos- ton Music Award for "Outstand- ing Folk Act." Antje Duvekot is an unstoppable force in the world of folk music, sure to garner an even wider array of awards with the release of her brand new al- bum, "New Siberia." "Duvekot has gotten hotter. faster than any local songwriter in recent memory. Her songs feel at once fresh faced and firmly rooted, driven by the whispery ,sensuality of her voice. She be- lieves in the redemptive power of the shared secret; and is unafraid to mine the darkest corners of her life for songs that turn fear into resilience and isolation into com- munity." - The Boston Globe "New Siberia" offers a re- freshing taste of Antje's unique radiance all over again, sounding all the more bright and soulful. Each track contains a wealth of heartfelt and tender lyrics, paired with her gentle, artful command of instruments such as acoustic guitar, octave mandolin, ukulele, and harmonicas. She is truly a woman of many talents, and this new masterpiece, released in January of 2012. is simply an even stronger testament to her greatness. Antje has extensive touring experience, criss-crossing the US and Europe several times. Her fast-growing fan base, the viral spreading of her music and a track record of sold-out shows are a testament to her growing popu- larity. After her unexpected ill- ness and cancelling of last year's performance during the 2010- 2011 Folk Series, we are ex- tremely lucky to have another opportunity to host her this year in Silver City. Additional sponsors include the Holiday Inn Express Silver City and Silver City Radio.
