|RECIPES FOR MAKING YOUR OWN CLEANING SUPPLIES:
****Always test in a small area first****
All-purpose cleaner: Combine ¼ vinegar, ¾ water with a drop of eco-dish soap, in a spray bottle.
Oven cleaner: Use a steamer with baking soda for scrubbing. If you don't have a steamer, spray oven with water and vinegar, sprinkle baking soda over area and let sit while doing other tasks. Wipe clean.
Toilet bowl cleaner: Use acetic acid/concentrated vinegar (use carefully as directed - it is a strong acid) then baking soda. Sprinkle baking soda around inside of toilet bowl, add some white vinegar and let sit a few minutes before cleaning with a toilet brush.
Furniture cleaner: Blend 50% olive oil with 50% vinegar or lemon juice.
Drain cleaner: Pour 125 ml of baking soda down the sink and add at least a cup of vinegar. Put the cover on the drain and wait a few minutes or overnight. Finish by rinsing thoroughly with a mixture of boiling water and salt.
