For those of us who are watching our pocket books, there are many common household items that may simply be lying around your home which can be used as alternatives to the common chemical laden household cleaners. Thinking “outside the box” can save you some money and help preserve your environment. Below are some simple “Green Recipes” to help you get started on your Spring cleaning. The basic supplies you’ll need to make your own green cleaners include:

A home equity loan (or second mortgage) is like a home loan:

  • You receive the entire loan amount in one big payout (to use however you want).
  • You can choose between fixed and adjustable interest rates (typically higher than a regular home loan, but lower than a home equity line of credit).
  • You pay the lender back via fixed monthly payments.
  • The interest you pay is tax-deductible.
  • After a set period (usually 15 or 30 years), the loan is paid off.
