natural cleaning products

February 6, 2007 4:15pm CST
I've been watching a show lately called "How Clean is Your House" and the hosts use a lot of cleaning products that you find in your home. Unfortunately, they don't give quantities for their homemade mixtures. I like the idea of cleaning with products that are not toxic, and will not harm my children. If anyone has a solution I'd love to hear about it.

I always suggest using the simplest products to control the ingredients you clean with. We have wood floors in our main areas so I use Murphy's oil soap with a little low quality essential oil to freshen. Fro the tiles areas I tend to use plain old bleach in water, but extremely diluted. For cleaning the tub, Dawn dishwashing liquid works weel and dishwaser detergent works well for cleaning windows but make sure you still use a squeegee.

Things like vinegar and lemon juice are usually well known as natural cleaning products. Mix vinegar with hot water I generally use a 25%vinegar 75% hot water mixture. Using lemon juice for remove greasy marks, use it neat and rince afterwards with hot water.

I've seen this show too. They have used toothpaste on a rag to remove crayon and ink from wallpaper and ketchup as a copper polisher!
