Living Greener

Here are some of our household's favorite recipes and tricks for cleaning:

1) For regular daily cleaning of windows, floors and counters we use an equal mixture of vinegar and water.

2) For regular daily cleaning of bathtubs, sinks and toilets, a sprinkling of baking soda works great.

3) A great drain cleaner is 1/2 cup baking soda followed by 1 cup vinegar. Let it sit for 15 minutes and then rinse with very hot water.

4) A fume free oven cleaner is mix up 1 cup of baking soda and add just enough water to get it to paste consistency. Apply to dirty spots in oven and let stand until dry. Wipe off using a wet washcloth. If your oven is really dirty, some scrubbing may be required.

If you have any tricks or recipes that you'd like to share, please post them in the comments section.

Good recipe for "off duty" deodorant. Fill a pump spray bottle (about 4-6 oz) with witch hazel to half. Add distilled or boiled water to near the top. Add six drops essential oil and shake shake shake. There that's it. I used ylang ylang as it's one of my all time favorites. A small bottle of essential oil will last a very long time and witch hazel is cheap. And your poor arm pits will be free of waxy sticks.
