White Vinegar and Baking Soda

More and more people are turning to homemade cleaning products because they are concerned about environmental pollution and their health.

Many of the commercial cleaning products people buy are unnecessary and add to the ever-growing landfill sites.

There are so many natural cleaning products you make in your own home that are safe to use, inexpensive to make and do a wonderful job.

By making and using natural cleaning products it reduces the chemicals used in your household. Here are some natural cleaning products you make with either white vinegar or baking soda.

White Vinegar

White vinegar is a great natural disinfectant that removes mineral deposits and stains and does many other cleaning jobs.

  • Vinegar and salt mixed together makes a great surface cleaner.

  • Depending on how dirty your ceramic tile floor is, mix either a quarter or half cup of white vinegar into a gallon of warm water. This not only removes the dirt without having to scrub but there is no film left on the tiles.

  • Apply warm vinegar to a cloth and squeeze the liquid onto stick-on hooks or bathtub no-slip decals to remove them.

  • Mix a cup of vinegar into a gallon of warm water to remove grease and dull film from no-wax linoleum floors.

  • Equal amounts of vinegar and water remove carpet stains, pet smells and clean ovens.

  • To clean stone and brick floors, mix a cup of white vinegar into a gallon of warm water. Scrub the floor and then rinse it with clean water.

  • To clean a dirty flower vase, add one or two tablespoons of vinegar and fill the base with warm water. Let this soak for half an hour and scrub with a soft cloth. Rinse and then dry and your flower vase will be clean and smell great.

  • Into a spray bottle add one-quarter cup of vinegar and fill with water. Spray on windows or glass and use either paper towels or crumpled newspaper to dry and shine.

  • On a damp cloth, sprinkle baking soda and then rub on your silverware to remove tarnish. Once you remove the tarnish, rinse and then dry.

Baking Soda

  • You can make a general cleaner by getting a quart of warm water and dissolving four tablespoons of baking soda into this.

  • Make a paste using baking soda with a little water and rub on black heel marks to remove these from your floor.

  • To deodorize and clean all your bathroom and kitchen surfaces, use baking soda on a clean, damp sponge.

  • One half cup of baking soda added to the wash makes clothes and towels smell fresh and feel soft.
