Stop using toxic cleaning product and learn to make your own cleaning products for penny’s on the dollar.
I personal use microfiber cleaning cloths, to do the majority of my house cleaning and for the disaffecting part of the cleaning I will use the handheld steam cleaner and I have floor steam cleaner for the floors in my home as well. The combination does a great cleaning job without all the chemicals and toxins. How much will you use save without having to buy all those cleaning products? How better off your long-term health will be without being exposed to all these toxic chemicals?
MOLD KILLERS Tea Tree Treasure Nothing natural works for mold and mildew as well as this spray. I’ve used it successfully on a moldy ceiling from a leaking roof, on a musty bureau, a musty rug, and a moldy shower curtain. Tea tree oil is expensive, but a little goes a very long way. Note that the smell of tea tree oil is very strong, but it will dissipate in a few days. 2 teaspoons tea tree oil 2 cups water Combine in a spray bottle, shake to blend, and spray on problem areas. Do not rinse. Makes two cups. Vinegar Spray Straight vinegar reportedly kills 82 percent of mold. Pour some white distilled vinegar straight into a spray bottle, spray on the moldy area, and let set without rinsing if you can put up with the smell. It will dissipate in a few hours.

VINEGAR DEODORIZER Keep a clean spray bottle filled with straight 5 percent vinegar in your kitchen near your cutting board and in your bathroom and use them for cleaning. I often spray the vinegar on your cutting board before going to bed at night, and don’t even rinse but let it sit overnight. The smell of vinegar dissipates within a few hours. Straight vinegar is also great for cleaning the toilet rim. Just spray it on and wipe off. Read more:

OVEN CLEANER 1 cup or more baking soda Water A squirt or two of liquid detergent Sprinkle water generously over the bottom of the oven, then cover the grime with enough baking soda that the surface is totally white. Sprinkle some more water over the top. Let the mixture sit overnight. You can easily wipe up the grease the next morning because the grime will have loosened. When you have cleaned up the worst of the mess, dab a bit of liquid detergent or soap on a sponge, and wash the remaining residue from the oven. If this recipe doesn’t work for you it is probably because you didn’t use enough baking soda and/or water.

CREAMY SOFT SCRUBBER simply pours about 1/2 cup of baking soda into a bowl, and add enough liquid detergent to make a texture like frosting. Scoop the mixture onto a sponge, and wash the surface. This is the perfect recipe for cleaning the bathtub because it rinses easily and doesn’t leave grit. Note: Add 1 teaspoon of vegetable glycerin to the mixture and store in a sealed glass jar, to keep the product moist. Otherwise just make as much as you need at a time.

All natural antiperspirant & deodorant
I found an inexpensive all-natural way to prevent underarm odor. In fact, works great, and I think to work better than my commercial deodorant. It's the old fashion Arm & Hammer (Baking Soda) Mix with equal amounts of cornstarch! You got it baking soda, to remove the order and cornstarch to keep you dry. This combo will cost less than $2.00 can easily last over a year. I know I was worried about the chemicals in my deodorant, I was resistant to go to an all natural product and pay $6 per stick! Now, I can do both at a great price too and 100% natural too.
All natural whiting toothpaste
I found a natural way to keep my teeth white without spending allot for those expensive tubes of toothpaste and remove the harmful toxin of fluoride, and other chemicals from a system. Simply mix a little bit of Arm & Hammer (Baking Soda) with hydrogen peroxide to form a paste. Now, you have a teeth cleaning and whiting machine. Once again less than $2.00 and will last months, not weeks.
Solar Lights to save on energy bill
I have a friend who used her Solar Lights inside the house at night when
the electric power went off during a hurricane. She stuck them in jars and
bottles and said they gave off plenty of 'free light' in each room. She put
them outside in the daytime and brought them back inside at night for
several days while the power was off. They are safe to use and cheaper than
batteries. She recommended we bring a Solar Light into our own house one
night to test it for ourselves.
Due to a thunderstorm, we lost power for about 5 hours one night. We were
scrambling around in the darkness, looking for matches, candles, and
flashlights. Then we looked outside and noticed our Solar Lights shining
brightly all around the patio, stairs & dock. My wife walked outside and
brought several of the solar lights inside. We stuck the Solar Light pipes
into plastic drink bottles and they made the nicest, brightest, safest,
lighting you could imagine. We put one in the bathroom, one in the kitchen
and in the living room.
There many types of Solar Lights available. We bought quite a few and put
them all around our yard. They look nice and do not attract flying bugs
like the outdoor lights around our doorway. The lights we have fit into
20-oz. water bottles and also fit into most larger 2 liter bottles. If you
need a weight in the plastic bottle to keep them from tipping over, put in
a few of the colorful flat marbles they put in aquariums and vases. You can
also use sand, aquarium gravel, or whatever you have available.
The Solar Lights we have are perfect inside our home. They burn all night
when needed and next day we take them back outside where they recharge and
are ready for use again when needed. Solar Lights are the perfect light
solution for power outages. I had never thought of it before seeing what my
friend did, and now you know about this idea too. Read more:http://columbusfinancialcoach.blogspot.com/2012/10/going-green-will-save-some-green-stop.html
