    Oh my, this is exactly what I’m doing except that my sprayer on my spray bottle stopped working so until I get another I’m putting a little on my cloth. I also soaked orange peels in some vinegar (I keep it in the fridge while I wait for the vinegar to take on the orange scent.) It’s amazing what baking soda & vinegar can do. High Five!

    I have been using Baking soda and white vinegar for years. I buy Baking soda by the kilo as it works out a lot cheaper. Also good for slow running sinks and basins. I am a bit heavy handed with the soda, but then I pour vinegar on it, leave it overnight, and flush it away with a kettle of boiling water in the morning. Problem solved and clean smelling again.

    Great tutorial! Cleaning really can be very simple. I find that baking soda works better for scrubbing if I add a little dish detergent–but I don’t bother mixing it into a paste anymore, now that I’ve found it works just fine to pick up some of each on my cloth.

    For cleaning the toilet, I’ve been using old socks or other rags that I can throw away. They’re free!

    Here’s my guide to green cleaning. I do use a couple of bottled products, but it’s mainly baking soda, vinegar, and peroxide!

    Chas, I love cleaning with baking soda and vinegar and am so happy to see bloggers like you getting the word out. I and a lot of other people are very sensitive to chemicals and their fragrances, so the more people who get on board with this, the healthier we’ll all be!

      Thank you Jean, I completely understand where you are coming from. I know some have used this for so many years, and that is why we share it with those who haven’t learned it yet 🙂

    I do a few of these already and some are new ideas – so big thanks for them!
    Another good tip for your shower screen is to get a squeegee so once you have made it super clean with your vinegar mix you can keep it much cleaner with a quick wizz with the squeegee after each use to save having to clean it so often.

    Also, one question since I forgot to ask in my earlier comment…do you think vinegar will work on polished marble? I wouldn’t worry if it was honed but wondering if it would be ok on marble with a sheen?

    I’ve been cleaning homes with all natural products for a few years. One thing I have found is for yellowing of fiberglass sinks and tubs is hydrogen peroxide. I mix half hydrogen peroxide and half water. Spray completely and let set for 15 minutes then spray off with water. Some I have had to repeat several times. The home owners are always amazed at restoration.

    Good tips. We live on the water and have to be very careful what goes into it. That’s because we draw drinking and cooking water from the lake below us. – Margy

    Natural cleaning is the way to go! Great post – I am actually cleaning my bathroom today, so I will definitely use some of these tips. Thanks for sharing!
