Cleaning supplies are often full of skin damaging chemicals, clean your home the green way using these few tricks:
- Clean containers: Store homemade cleaning products in unused, clean containers. Never use bottles that once held chemicals. To keep your family safe, label homemade cleaners when you make them, and ensure you use the right solution for the application.
- Test it: Before you spray a cleaner on any surface, test first in a hidden area to ensure the cleaner doesn't damage or mar the material.
- When to skip vinegar: Never use vinegar solutions on marble, cast iron, aluminum, or waxed surfaces. The acid in the vinegar can etch, pit, and strip finishes or otherwise damage these surfaces.
- 1/2 c white vinegar.
- 2 Tbsp of baking soda.
- 10 drops of lavender essential oil.
