Save money on your grocery bill by cutting out or down on the chemical cleaning supplies. Here are a few ideas for cleaning supplies you can make with chemical free items you may already have at home.
Furniture Polish : Mix one part lemon juice with two parts olive oil.
Toilet Bowl Cleaner: Pour about 3 cup white vinegar into toilet bowl and about once a week add some vinegar to the tank to help keep the toilet bowl clean.
Laundry: Use white vinegar, about 1/2 cup to 1 cup, in the rinse cycle instead of store bought fabric softener sheets. You can also add vinegar to those laundry balls that you just throw in with the clothes to have soft fluffy laundry.
Dishes: For hand washing your dishes, use a half lemon with baking soda sprinkled on it to wash your dishes and get them sparkly clean (some pots and pans may still need the tough scrubber sponge though.) In the dishwasher, use vinegar instead of detergent. Just pour about 1/2 cup into the bottom of the dishwasher.
Drain Cleaner: Put about a cup of baking soda down your bathroom drain, followed by a cup of vinegar to get rid of clogs. This may take a couple of repeats, but should get drains cleared out.
