VINEGAR: Mix 1 part water to 1 part vinegar. Works as a natural deodorizer AND disinfectant! Safe on most surfaces and incredibly inexpensive. Vinegar smell disappears as it dries. Use in bathroom to clean your tub (gets rid of soap scum), your toilet (gets rid of rings if used undiluted), and your floor (eliminates hard water stains). Use in your kitchen on your countertops, scrub out your sink, and on your appliances for a squeaky clean. Use in the laundry room: add 1/2 C. in replace of fabric softener. Helps break down heavy detergents and naturally softens clothing. Great for sensitive skin!
LEMON JUICE: Mix with water to eliminate hard water stains and soap scum. Shines brass and copper items. Mix 1 cup olive oil with ½ cup lemon juice and you have a furniture polish for your hardwood furniture. Put a whole lemon peel through the garbage disposal. It freshens the drain and the kitchen.
BAKING SODA: Used the same way as commercial abrasive cleaners but non-toxic. Great deodorizer!
