  • 5 simple non-toxic ideas for cleaning your house

    Baking soda & white vinegar can be used in so many ways when it comes to cleaning your house. Here are few ways that I personally use them:

    Clean Skins and Tub. Sprinkle it in your skin or tub and scrub the scum and dirt away. I like to add a little tea tree oil or lemon oil as an added disinfectant. (Store in a Mason jar or peanut butter jar.)

    Remove baked-on food off of pots and pans. It’s great for getting baked-on grime off of pans and dishes. Just sprinkle baking soda in the pan, add a little water or castile soap and scrub with a cloth or sponge and it will come right off.

    Freshen Laundry Add baking soda to your laundry and cut back on the detergent to keep clothes fresh.

    Deodorize the garbage disposal by pouring in 1/2 cup baking soda and 1/2 cup hot white distilled vinegar. Let sit for 5 minutes then run hot water down the disposal.

    Get rid of lime deposits in a tea kettle (electric kettle) by adding 1/2 cup white distilled vinegar to the water and letting it sit overnight.  Just rise with water in the morning.
