vinegar-_baking-sodaToday’s try-it is in line with my desire to live a more natural, chemical-free, sustainable life. I’ve been using Clorox Green Works products for about a year now, but it doesn’t take a chemist to know that there are still some far-from-natural ingredients in their products. So, after a little internet research and reading through some natural parenting books, I’ve come up with several recipes to try today as I scrub, wash and disinfect. These are the ones I will try today. My bathroom is looking a little scary!

 

ALL-PURPOSE CLEANER

Mix the following in a large container. Store and use to clean mirrors, windows, water deposits in showers, chrome fixtures, etc. 

  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1/4 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 gallon (2 liters) water

 

BATHROOM MOLD BUSTER

  • MIX 1 part hydrogen peroxide (3%) with two parts water in a spray bottle.
  • Spray directly on mold and wait at least one hour before rinsing.

I’ll update again later to let you know how it all turns out!

  1. Not only will you love the “naturalness” of the products, but you will love the frugality of using those natural products. It is so cheap! $2.00 for a gallon of vinegar- can’t get much better than that.
