Natural cleaning for cabins at CWC

Kim has written a series of articles published in a state-wide Minnesota magazine, the CMR Resorter Reporter, over the last 15 years.   Green cleaning has been a big priority since day one of resort ownership.   The articles were meant to share wisdom with other fellow resorters as the Community of Minnesota Resorts motto is:  resorters helping resorters.    Some guests may be interested in articles -but mostly, they just want the recipes of Natural Cleaning Solutions left in cabins for them to use.   HA!    Here ya go, peeps:  RECIPES HERE.
