Nontoxic Cleaners Made from Most Household Items
- New & Improved Green Cleaners: Ones that don't contain lye, petroleum based detergents and potentially toxic chemicals Household Products list of cleaners that can be made from ingredients already in your home. Baking soda, lemon juice, vegetable oil, borax, soaps made from animal or vegetable fat and plain old hot water can do the work of dozens of "extra-strength" "antibacterial," over-the-counter products.
Try these time-tested recipes for average household chores.
- All Purpose Cleaner: Mix two teaspoons of borax to one teaspoon soap in a quart of water. Store in a rinsed, recycled spray bottle.
- Air Fresheners: Many products simply mask odors by deadening your sense of smell. Eliminate the smell's source. Then set out a dish of baking soda or vinegar. For a potpourri-like fragrance, boil hers and spices.
- Carpet Deodorizers: Sprinkle baking soda or corn starch (one cup per room), or one part borax/two parts cornmeal mix. Vacuum after an hour.
- Disinfectants: One half cup borax in one gallon hot water disinfects common bacteria.
- Dishwashing: Liquid or powdered soap with a few teaspoons of vinegar handles most soil. For dishwashers, use a borax and washing soda (hydrated sodium carbonate) mix.
Drain Cleaners: Prevention is the best medicine. Once a week, plug the overflow and pour a quarter cup of baking soda down the drain. Follow with one-half cup of vinegar and cover tightly for a minute. Flush
with boiling water.
- Floor Cleaners: One half cup vinegar with a half gallon of warm water cuts greasy film on no-wax linoleum.
- Furniture Polish: Equal parts vegetable oil and lemon juice or vinegar replenishes waxed wood's shine. Substitute a mix of vegetable and lemon oil for unwaxed wood.
- Glass Cleaners: A mix of white vinegar and water leaves windows sparkling.
- Heavy Cleaning: Use ammonia only when other cleaners fail, and never use ammonia with chlorine: the combination forms a deadly gas.
- Mold & Mildew: Use a concentrated solution of borax and water. Borax also inhibits mold growth.
- Mothballs: Make a paste of baking soda, salt and hot water. Scrub with a damp cloth. For baked-on dirt, try a half cup of ammonia to one gallon of hot water.
- Scouring Powder: Table salt or baking soda works fine on most surfaces.
- Silver Polish: Submerge silver in water with a little salt and a small piece of aluminum foil. Remove and wipe dry.
- Toilet Cleaners: Use soap and borax and disinfect. Remove rings and lime buildup with white vinegar. Or sprinkle baking soda plus some vinegar into the toilet bowl and scour.
