    A great and inexpensive substitute to commercial cleaners.

    Recipe #93273

    This solution is for heavy duty cleaning. Washing soda can be found in the cleaning aisle of your local grocery store along with the detergents and other cleaning products. Washing soda is not baking soda. I use Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda.

    Recipe #393210

    Is your shower head clogged? Is it slow running or at a lower pressure than normal? Try this simple and easy fix for most shower head problems! Be careful not to get the vinegar in your eyes...it stings!

    Recipe #364664

    This is an inexpensive and "green" way to clean your smooth top electric stove. Except for the lemon essential oil, it uses things you normally have around the house. Posted by Katy S on Everyday Cheapskate.

    Recipe #388511

    My wonderful Auntie Karen(Chef Yogi) has been so generous and kind to me. She sent me over half a dozen awesome essential oils which is something I have been wanting for so many months!! She sent me this wonderful easy recipe that was listed on www.make-stuff.com I have just finished making this and using it in my horribly dirty sink and now, I have the most clean and glowing sink I have ever seen in my kitchen! Nobody would believe I haven't used even a little Vim or Jif tonight to clean my sink if they saw it. Something so easy as this, and using just 4 ingredients is a true winner and a sure keeper in my book. Hope this will make you as happy as it made me! I am going to use this as long as these oils last!;) In my opinion, this would make a nice gift to give a would-be bride or your best friend for that matter or your neighbour or mom or MIL. Whoever you gift this to, is going to love you for it! ENJOY!

    Recipe #64532

    This cleanser is so simple. You probably already have the main ingredient in you cupboard. It leaves your sink and your pots sparkling clean without the use of harsh chemicals or perfumes.

    Don't remember where this came from, but it seems easy.

    Recipe #217604

    This is a great "soft scrub" for counters, sinks, tubs, shower stalls, etc. You can optionally add an essential oil to scent. (I use Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Castille soap, so I don't need any extra scent.) It's important to use liquid soap, not detergent, because detergent makes it much harder to rinse. Castille soap is best; it's available at health food stores. It's great to use this and know you're saving money while being kind to your lungs and the planet at the same time! I got this recipe from Karen Logan's book, Clean House, Clean Planet (a great book!). You can add a few drops of tea tree oil to make it disinfectant and use it for a toilet bowl cleaner.

    Recipe #80954

    This is by far the best all purpose cleaner I've found. It is fabulous on windows and mirrors, degreases wonderfully, and cuts gunk on sinks etc. and shines, shines, shines. I use it for everything but wood.

    Recipe #26191

    And environmentally friendly, easy, non-chemical way to clean your oven. No over-powering fumes.

    Recipe #138100

    If you bake and cook everyday then this is a must to have in your cupboard, it's so much cheaper than using cooking spray and works even better than Pam cooking spray, no chemical fumes and will not leave burnt on black residue on the edges of your pans like cooking spray will and will keep forever in your cupboard --- for baking recipes using chocolate you may use 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder in place of white flour or 1/4 cup each cocoa powder and flour --- this may be increased or decreased sucessfully just make certain that *all* three ingredients are the same amounts or the mixture will not work as well ;-)

    Use this recipe to clean your coffee maker. A clean machine makes better tasting coffee!

    Recipe #156833

    A while back I saw a program where a textile conservator discussed taking the stains that come from age, along with tough stains out of any fabric. Sure she demonstrated it and it worked incredibly, but would it work THAT WELL when I tried it on my own? Probably not. BUT IT DID. It was phenomenal. A friend and I collect vintage G.I. Joe dolls and it took a 20+ year old magic marker stain completely out of a light colored garment. That's when I was sold. My sister kept a covered bucket of this mixture next to my neice's changing table when she was a baby. Parents know how difficult formula, milk and baby food stains are to get out. This works wonders.

    Recipe #112348

    Vanilla is so popular as a fragrance in everything from bodycare to candles and air fresheners---it has that secret something that draws us in! In tests done by the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago to understand the impact of smell upon sexual arousal, it was discovered the smell which arouses mature men the most was vanilla. In addition to being an aphrodisiac, soaking in this fragrant milk bath is very soothing and will make your skin soft.

    Recipe #311529

    We have cats and dogs and once a month I ”treat” the house using this. I use mostly lavender and rosemary oil but also like lemongrass or peppermint. They say that using lavender and rosemary it not just refreshes but it keeps away fleas and moths. I think that makes sense because I make soap that I use on our dogs and that also uses rosemary as one of the ingredients. If you have friends that like Potpourri as a gift they will also like this.Once you have made this and like it, try to buy the rosemary and lavender in bulk.

    WOW! No streaks, no smears, no buffing. This will clean ceramic tile counter tops, windows and their vinyl casings, SS appliances, sealed wood AND it removes hairspray from mirrors. So far that's all I've tried it on, as I came up with this recipe just this morning. I've been a cleaning fool today, experimenting on everything. I love it...Let me know what you think.

    Recipe #135802

    I'm so picky about clean, streak-free windows and mirrors, and this stuff is great. With the ammonia and rubbing alcohol, this has disinfectant properties. I have spray bottles of this in each bathroom, great for a spritz and wipe of the sink and toilet each morning. I also have my toilet brush sitting in a crock with this for a quick swish.

    Thanks to Bev's recipe for cleaning my clothes washer I thought maybe someone would also enjoy a shiny clean dish washer!

    Recipe #66665

    I just switched to stainless steel cookware this year. I've had several instances where I get food bonded to the bottom of a pan. One day my Mother was visiting and I was complaining about it. She said, "cream of tartar". I said, "huh"? She said it just popped into her head that my Great Grandmother used to say to sprinkle cream of tartar in a hard to clean stainless steel pan put some water in it and boil it until the crud comes off. Guess what? It works everytime! *This is my favorite posting because it has helped so many people...and apparently it works on more than stainless steel. :)

    Recipe #251972

    This recipe found in the Toronto Star. It comes from Green Clean by Linda and Mason Hunter and Mikki Halpin. Quote: "For the first time in the history of the world, every human being is now subjected to contact with dangerous chemicals, from the moment of conception until death." Rachel Carson, Silent Spring, 1962 Note: After the reviewers' comments, I've changed the number of drop of essential oils)
