Clean and Green

I am not saying I am OCD clean, but having a troop of dirt magnets running around this house has me frazzled. Who doesn't love a clean house? All the while keeping the cleaning products dirt cheap! Here are a few suggestions for making home made cleaners that I use with just a few basics.

All purpose cleaner:
20 oz spray bottle
5 oz vinegar
15 oz water
2-3 drops liquid soap

Glass cleaner:
1 tbs lemon juice
1/4 cup vinegar
2-3 cups hot water

Drain cleaner:
1/2 cup baking soda
1/2 cup vinegar
4-8 cups hot water
pour the baking soda first, then slowly add the vinegar and top it off with the hot water.

Grout cleaner:
baking soda
hydrogen peroxide
Make it into a paste and let it rest 30 minutes and rinse with water.

Toilet bowl:
1/2 cup baking soda or 1/2 borax and scrub with brush

Dishwasher detergent:
2 cups washing soda
1 cup borax
1 cup baking soda
Use 2 tbs each load, and use vinegar as the rinse agent to help glass sparkle!
