Today I tried using “natural” cleaners for the first time… they worked great!! I don’t know why I’ve never tried before – they worked just as well as the other stuff, I wasn’t worried about what I was breathing in (especially being pregnant), and it’s cheap! Granted, I used more paper towels than I normally would have – call it the nurse in me, I like to throw things away rather than try to launder them… Anyway, here are the recipes for what I used – loved it!
Glass cleaner- 1 part vinegar to 2 parts water
Basic Vinegar Rinse- Fill a squirt bottle with equal amounts white distilled vinegar and water. Shake to mix. Great for Floors, walls, windows, and for removing soap scum.
I used this for wiping down everything – worked well.
Homemade Soft Scrubber –
½ Cup Baking Soda
Liquid Soap or Detergent
This is what I used to clean the bathtub and sink – I found it to work just as well as comet! I’m excited about these alternatives – I wanted to try it, but didn’t think it would really work… surprisingly enough, it did and worked well!
Lastly, here is a picture of the awesome rainbow we had at home the other day! If you look closely, you can see the double rainbow too.
