Basic Natural Cleaning Products - Recipes

All-purpose cleaners are the ideal solution.  They clean bathroom surfaces, kitchen surfaces, laundry-room surfaces and everything in between.  In addition to cleaning and disinfecting, they also deodorize -- thanks in large part to the baking soda ingredient in most household cleaners. 

When stored properly, they can last for several weeks. Of course, you'll always want to do a spot test to make sure the natural treatment won't harm the surface to be cleaned.
  
* Basic Cleaner Recipe
1/8 cup baking soda 
1/2 cup ammonia
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/2 gallon warm water
Mix ingredients and store in tightly capped container.  A large empty milk jug works well for storage.
* Basic abrasive cleaner (works well for coffee stains on countertops)
1/2 cup vinegar and 1/2 cup kosher salt
Mix together in a small bowl or storage container
* Basic scrubbing cleaner and deodorizer for bathroom or kitchen surfaces
Dissolve 4 tablespoons baking soda in 1 quart warm water
 
* Basic Toilet bowl cleaner/deodorizer
Sprinkle 1/4 cup of baking soda into your toilet bowl
      Pour in approximately 1/4 cup of white or cider vinegar
      Scour with a toilet brush
* Basic Bathtub cleaner and tile and grout cleaner
Use baking soda as a scouring powder
Using a damp sponge and a little elbow grease, rub powder into tile and tub surfaces
Rinse thoroughly
* Basic Glass and window cleaner
1/2 cup white vinegar
1 gallon warm water
           Mix in a large bucket, or for ease of use you can place into a spray bottle
           Use paper towels or clean lint-free towel to clean
           Avoid newspaper as most have a water-based ink now and ink will smear.
