      I clean all my windows and mirrors with vinegar. Cheaper!

    • #118308 the vinegar. I wouldn’t bother to make my own if I had to buy a bunch of stuff and mix it all up, and then add essential oil etc. But plain old vinegar works. And, basically, soap is soap; you don’t need lots of different kinds for different uses. Life works very well when it is simpler.

      It depends on what you are trying to clean. Hydrogen peroxide will disinfect like bleach, but is gentler for around kids. VInegar mixed with water will clean most surfaces, counters, windows, etc. Anything with more stubborn stains, you can use baking soda and water to make a paste to scrub off.

      I follow the blog and she has a ton of great natural cleaning recipes!

      Seems like everyone took the words right out of my mouth! I was going to say vinegar, it’s inexpensive and it works for so many things. Baking soda as someone else said,

      Save your orange peels!
      Eat some oranges, fill a mason jar or any similar glass jar (with a lid) with orange peels, pour white vinegar over the peels to fill the jar. Let sit for 2 weeks in a cool dark place, strain out vinegar and dilute 1:1 with water. Put in a spray bottle and you got yourself an all purpose cleaner.

      You can even kill mildew in the bathroom with the viniger and baking soda. Peroxide will do the same.
      My kids can destroy a bathroom sink in minutes. I was walking around surveying the damage after getting them all out the door. Not carrying cleaners because I wasn’t intending to clean just yet.I saw the sink and grabbed some tissue out of desperation and started rubbing the soap,toothpaste and whatever the black stuff was in the goo. I had my morning diet Mountain dew in my hand and thought….why not. So I dumped a bit in the sink and wipped the goo. Walaaah, it was amazing at cleaning even soap scum off! Then I dumped some on the mildew in the shower and the same outcome!!!Ladies this turned out to be an amazing day indeed. Now I keep a 2 liter of diet Mountain dew on hand for cleaning the bathrooms.
