Do-It-Yourself Cleaners the Natural Way

Here are some way to clean up naturally...

Make Soft Scrub = Add enough Simple Soap to 1/8 cup of baking soda to make a creamy mixture.

Appliance Cleaner = Dry baking soda shines up small appliances and even removes bread wrappers burned onto the toaster. Try rubbing a teaspoon onto your grubby blender of food processor with a clean flannel cloth.

Toilet Cleaner = Sprinkle toilet bowl with 1/4 cup of baking soda . Drizzle with 1/4 cup vinegar, then scour with a toilet brush.

Oven Cleaner = Sprinkle oven with 1/2 cup cup baking soda (more if needed) and spray with water. Let sit for several hours or overnight before scraping up stains and spills. Rinse thoroughly with water.

Hardwood Floor Cleaner = In a pail or bucket, mix 1/4 cup distilled white vinegar in one gallon warm water. Mop wood or linoleum floors, then rinse with water, making sure not to leave large pools to dry.

All these recipes and more can be found in a book called Green Clean, by Linda Mason Hunter and Mikki Halpin.
