Homemade Cleaning Products

Here are a few quick and easy recipes that you can use to create your own homemade cleaning products.

• Create a solution of dishwashing liquid and water for use as an all-purpose cleaner.

• Clean countertops by alternating between white vinegar and hydrogen peroxide. Put one on the counter, then the other and wipe.

• To clean the carpet, sprinkle baking soda, and vacuum after 15 minutes.

• Scour greasy pots and pans with salt.

• Try olive, almond or walnut oil to polish furniture.

• To clean the bathtub and tile, use vinegar (rinse well, as it can corrode some fixtures) or mix 2 drops of tea-tree oil with 1 cup of water.

• For the toilet, let 1/2 cup of vinegar stand for a few minutes, brush the bowl and flush.

• Mix equal parts white vinegar and hot water to clean windows and glass.
