Here we go with another use for vinegar.
One of the problem areas to try and find a green solution is my dishwasher.

Being really chemical free there is a problem but I just found a new solution which I’m going to try.

Fill the rinse reservoir with white vinegar and aparantly your dishes and glasses will sparkle like never before.

So here goes. I’ll let you know if it works.

A volcano in the toilet

There is a popular cleaning method used for toilets which is called the volcano method. I know, dont laugh. A volcano in the toilet.

But its simple and easy. Just pour one cup of baking soda and one cup of vinegar into the toilet bowl. Close the lide and then go do something else.

Then after a while go back and wipe the bowl with the brush

All stains gone ,and your toilets nice and clean!

Here I go again off on one of my chemical free cleaning tips. But I’m absolutly fascinated by it and it is actually working out to be cheaper than using the products I previously used.

How to kill germs without using strong products is probably one of the most difficult things to do when you are trying to be chemical free. The closest thing that I have found that actually works is to  mix 2 cups of water, 3 tablespoons of liquid soap ( I use Grumme products as they are natural ) and about 30 drops of tea tree oil.

Put it in a spray bottle and its ready to use!

Natural cleaning. Again.

Ok! I know some of you think that I’m flipping out with this natural cleaning thing I’m going through, but, it really is an eye opener!

Here are a couple of tips of how to use Olive Oil as a cleaning agent:

1.  To clean metal surface and cooking pots – Make a scouring paste of Olive Oil coarse salt a stiff brush. Then wash it away with warm water.

2. To fix scratches on leather furniture or clothing – Put a little Olive Oil on a cotton cloth and rub in in a curcular motion.

3. To polish stainless steel – To make it sparkle, pour olive oil onto a cloth and polish untill you get the desired affect.

4. To polish wooden floors and furniture – Mix 2 cups olive oil with 1 cup lemon juice . Rub the mixture into the furniture with a soft cloth. Then Polish away

5. To smooth out scratches in light-colored wood, mix equal parts olive and lemon juice. Then Polish to your hearts content.

6. Try spraying  olive oil on squeaky door hinges,

7. Clean your dusty plant leaves by wiping them with Olive oil.

These are just soem of the tips I have been given and tried.
