Household cleaners are expensive and often contain many harmful chemicals that you don't want to expose your family to. By rounding up a few supplies that you probably already have in your kitchen, you can not only keep your house shiny and clean but you can also save some of that money you have worked so hard for.
Here are a few ideas that can have your house looking spiffy and fresh at half the cost and zero the chemicals.
Baking Soda can clean, deodorize, soften water, and scour. You can use it in your bathroom along with a bit of elbow grease to get rid of soap scum and mildew without overpowering odor. It is also a great carpet deodorizer.
White Vinegar disinfects, cuts grease, and remove mildew,odors, stains and wax build-up. Most people have heard that vinegar is a great window cleaner, but did you also know it is great for cutting grease, removing odors and treating stains (even blood).
Lemon is a fabulous disinfectant and it smells good too. Like vinegar, lemon is great for getting rid of mildew. On a side note, these same ingredients can be used for personal care as well, such as deodorant, skin care and treating dandruff.
Peroxide isn't just a requirement for the first aid kit, it is also great for getting rid of mold and stains. Keep in mind however that it will work like bleach so if you want to remove a stain in fabric or carpet, test in an inconspicuous area first or it may remove the coloring.
