I did a little cleaning today and ended up cleaning the kitchen floor when an unfortunate glass bottle of vinegar hit the floor. I only use homemade natural cleaners in my house. I have tried several 'natural' cleaners but to be honest homemade is cheaper, easier and nicer on the environment. I have some homemade cleaners on my site here but if you go here this site has some easy cleaner recipes. Thanks food storage made easy.
Using vinegar- Go here to see how many different ways you can use vinegar
Note vinegar is a natural disinfectant. You can safely use it on about anything. I use it top to bottom in my home. Keep in mind that the smell disappears quickly. I use it so much I associate it with clean like most people associate pine sol clean. When sickness hits my home I use it on all the door handles and light switches like most people use Lysol.
Using Baking Soda- Go here to see 75 ways for using baking soda
Baking soda has so many uses you can't believe it. I use it for the laundry, as a paste for heavy cleaning and sprinkle it in the house as a deodorizer for the carpets. Keep in mind that brands don't really matter for baking soda. Cheaper is fine.
Go here to see ways to use Borax. Did you know you can preserve flowers, kill ants and fleas with borax?
Soaps, I loved using castile soap. It is hard to find good old fashion castile soaps that are made with olive oil and nothing else. I have sensitive skin and this soap is a wonder for laundry soap, and using in the shower. I don't always use it but when I find it I go crazy with it, I like the liquid the best. Go here to see what castile soap is and some uses.
Super Washing soda- I use this in my homemade laundry soap and I am learning new ways to use this as well. Go here to see how to use washing soda.
Do you have a cleaning recipe you would like to share, a favorite website you use for environmental cleaners or a comment on using homemade cleaners? I would love to hear from my readers and everyone enjoyes learning new things.
