Safe house cleaning with only five basic components!

Many cleaning products contain dangerous chemicals, which are usually not listed on the labels. One of the easiest ways to protect your family from harm is to stop using toxic cleaning products. Make them yourself; it is far less expensive and just as effective.

White distilled vinegar disinfects and deodorizes and dissolves hard water scale, gummy substances, and tarnish. Mix some vinegar with water in a spray bottle and you have your own window cleaner. It also pulls dirt from wood. As a fabric rinse, 1/4 cup of vinegar added to the washing machine's rinse cycle removes detergent completely from clothes, eliminating that scratchy feel. When vinegar dries, it has no odor.
Baking soda has many cleaning and deodorizing uses.
Baking soda neutralizes odors and makes a good sink, tub, oven and countertop scourer.
For a "soft scrub," mix together baking soda and liquid soap. Make only as much as you need, as it dries up quickly.
Deodorize: Place an open box of baking soda in the fridge. Sprinkle it on carpets before vacuuming. Line kitty's litter box with about 1 cup before adding litter. To de-grease and sweeten sink and tub drains, pour 1/2 cup of baking soda down drain followed by 1 cup vinegar; let bubble for 15 minutes; rinse with hot water.
Lemon juice cuts grease and polishes metal.
Lemon juice, also acidic, lightens stains and cuts grease. For a laundry brightener, add 1/2 cup of strained lemon juice to the rinse cycle. To remove tarnish, rub sliced lemons on brass, copper, bronze and aluminum. This work especially well with baking soda sprinkled on the lemon.
Washing soda is a stronger alternative to baking soda.
You can find it in the supermarket laundry aisle. Washing soda is baking soda's more caustic cousin. It's stronger and also requires the use of gloves and more rinsing, so save for extra-stubborn stains.
To clean extra-greasy ovens, apply a paste of 1 cup baking soda, 1/4 cup of washing soda, and water; soak overnight. The next morning, lift off soda mixture and grime; rinse well.
Add 1/2-cup washing soda to laundry as a detergent booster.
Borax kills mold.
This alkaline mineral can be used like washing soda as a cleaner. It's also a mold-killer but can be toxic when swallowed, so take care in using and storing it. You can find it in the laundry aisle of the supermarket.
For an extra-strength toilet bowl cleaner, pour 1 cup of borax into the toilet before going to bed and, in the morning, scrub and flush.

ALL cleaners, whether homemade or store bought, and cleaning ingredients should be kept safely away out of the reach of children and pets in locked cabinets or high places.
