There are main basic food items that we already have in our home that can be used as DIY natural cleaning solutions or what's termed as green cleaning. You just have to know which of them can be used to clean what. This includes vinegar, baking soda, salt, olive oil, and other items that are discussed in Green Cleaning 101 - DIY Natural Cleaning Solutions with Vinegar and Other Frugal Resources That You Already Have. White vinegar is the most dominant ingredient throughout.
You might not even need to go out and buy anything extra. But if you're frugal like more of us are becoming these days, it'll cost less than commercial brands and will still get the job done for you in an eco-friendly way which is expanded upon. Are you sensitive or allergic to toxic chemical cleaning solutions? When you open or twist off the cap, does your head throb? Do your eyes start watering? Does it become hard to breathe while you're in a room trying to clean it? Well, a DIY book on green cleaning is the way to go and it's really not difficult to do.
You just have to be willing to measure and mix easy solutions. Make a large enough amount that will last you for a few cleanings and then you won't need to do it again for a while. Simply double or triple what it says to do and that's all there is to it. Numerous recipes are shared for cleaning floors, toilets, bathtubs, walls, windows, countertops, sinks, mirrors, carpet, clothing, removing rust, etc. There's also a special natural deodorizing solution that not too many know about.
NOTE: This particular audiobook mentions some additional items that aren't necessarily food-based but definitely should be included in the mix, so to speak. It even gives suggestions on what cleaning tools you should use to clean specific things with. (You'll see what I mean.) Put Green Cleaning 101 - DIY Natural Cleaning Solutions with Vinegar and Other Frugal Resources That You Already Have into action for a healthier environment for you and your family. You'll be glad you did!
Quick to listen to, but would be a lot better if a PDF was supplied with audio, rather than having to write manually. Half the ideas were common knowledge, but there were also some good tips. Great to keep in mind when you’re cleaning someone’s house and you run out of a product; that there is an easy substitute close by, possibly in their kitchen cupboard.
