Homemade Green Cleaning Products

--Mix together one part while vinegar and one part water in spray bottle. This is a good all-around cleaner for countertops (test first on marble surfaces), sinks and appliances. Add lemon juice for a fresh smell or to remove soap scum.

--Use pure vinegar in your toilet bowl to disinfect.

--Mix together vinegar and salt for a good surface cleaner.

--Make a paste using salt, water, and a little vinegar. Use this as a general, all-purpose cleaner.

--Combine 1 cup rubbing alcohol, 1 cup water, and 1 Tbsp vinegar in a spray bottle. Use on glass and mirrors, and to shine chrome. The alcohol prevents streaking.

--Mix 1 cup vinegar with 1 gallon warm water. Use this to damp mop hardwood, linoleum and tile floors. No need to rinse.

--Spray mixture of 1 part white vinegar and 1 part water on oven. Scrub with a non-abrasive cleaning pad. This works great, even on baked on spills.

--Mix 1 part water and 1 part vinegar in spray bottle. Add 10-20 drops tea tree oil, or lavender or citrus oil. Shake well. Use anywhere, as needed. Non-toxic and organic. Also good to clean door knobs, toilet handles, switch plate covers, etc. I like to use this to clean toilets and sinks.

Always use distilled white vinegar.
