Cheap Eco Friendly, Green Natural Cleaning Products
Posted by Norman Fong
Here are some tips for making eco friendly and really cheap natural cleaning products.
1) Baking soda cleans but also gets rid of odors. (That is why we use it in the frig) Sprinkle on the carpet and vacuum it up. Mix it with Sea salt and it is a good scouring cleanser.
2) Vinegar removes grease and dirt. White vinegar gets rid of carpet odors. Vinegar, baking soda, and water can make a good all purpose cleaner.
3) Citrus juice and peels like that of lemon are good for freshening up rooms.
4) Borax (20 Mule team) cleans, removes stains and disinfects. A good bleach alternative.

Cleaning Showerheads and Tile the Green Way
Cleaning shower head holes is a pain. No need to use harsh poisonous chemicals. An easy way to do it is by unplug the shower head and soak in a mix of equal parts of white vinegar and warm water for about 2 hours. Rinse it off.
A mix of 2 tablespoons of white vinegar with 1 quart of warm water works well on bathroom tile. Be sure to use a soft towel and rinse it off afterward.
Cleaning Windows the Green Way
Eco friendly green cleaning windows is easy. No need for harsh and expensive chemicals. Half cup of cornstarch with a gallon of warm water will make you a very good cleaning solution. Rinse with a touch of white vinegar mixed in with water and then wipe again.
Crumple and reuse old newspapers to wipe instead of using new paper towels.
