Making Homemade Kitchen Green Cleaning Products

Simple ingredients from your pantry at home can be utilized to create homemade cleaning products that are eco-friendly …

Diluted White Vinegar

White vinegar that is mildly acidic dissolves hard water deposits, soap scum, and dirt from smooth surfaces. At the same time, it is gentle and can be used in a solution to clean hardwood floors. As a natural deodorizer, white vinegar does not just cover up odors, it absorbs them. Once you use diluted white vinegar to clean and it dries, any acidic aroma disappears.

Since the vinegar does not contain coloring agents, it will not stain the grout on your tiled surfaces. It also cuts detergent residue, which makes it great to use as a fabric softener.

Undiluted White Vinegar

White vinegar poured straight from the jug will help you clean tougher surfaces, such as soap scum or hard water deposits. You can use it to clean the inside of a toilet bowl.

To do this, first, dump a bucket of water straight into the toilet, in order to force the water out of the bowl. This will allow you to access the sides of the toilet bowl. Then, pour the undiluted vinegar around the perimeter of the bowl, and scrub the bowl with a toilet brush. Continue scrubbing to remove odor and stains.
