You can go green at home with a few simple household
staples that will clean up all your household problems while
not leaving behind a chemical residue or chemical
contamination of our water system.
Here are a few recipes for natural cleaning products you can
mix up in your kitchen that are as effective as the chemicals
cleaners you buy at the store.
Mix equal parts of water and vinegar in a spray bottle or mop
bucket. You can use this mixture to clean, disinfect and
deodorize everything from windows to countertops to floors.
Mix together one tablespoon of baking soda, which absorbs
odors, one teaspoon of lemon juice or vinegar, which
deodorizes, with two cups of hot water. Use a spray bottle to
spray the mixture throughout the room to get rid of odors.
Rug and carpet deodorizer
Sprinkle baking soda onto rugs and carpets and let it sit for 15 to 30 minutes before vacuuming. The baking
soda will absorb odors, leaving your floors fresh and clean.
Kitchen and bathroom stains
Whether you have a ring around the tub, a food-splattered microwave or a stained coffee pot, a paste of
baking soda and water is the answer. This easy mix can be used throughout the house to clean up stains by
applying it with a sponge and then rinsing or wiping it off. It can even shine up your silver and stainless steel.
Unstop clogged drains by pouring ½ cup of baking soda followed by a cup of vinegar. Let the mixture bubble
for about 10 to 15 minutes before pouring a kettle of boiling water down the drain to clear out the clog. This
simple solution will eliminate the need to pour dangerous drain cleaners down the drain and into our water
