Going green is easy to do, and most of the ingredients are already in your kitchen. Here are some easy recipes for cleaning products that you can make at home.
Drain cleaners. A simple solution of 1 cup baking soda poured into the sink or tub, followed by 1 cup vinegar should keep your drain flowing freely.
Mold remover. Eliminate mold by spraying with vinegar at 5% concentration, or by scrubbing with a non-ammonia detergent such as borax, hydrogen peroxide, or tea tree oil.
Healthy air freshener. For a lemon-fresh smell in the air, mix 1 teaspoon baking soda with 1 teaspoon lemon juice, and 2 cups hot water in a spray bottle. Spray!
Flea control. Wash your dog with 1/4 teaspoon of an essential oil that is insect-repelling, such as citronella, cedarwood, eucalyptus, rosemary, or bay leaf, with 1 teaspoon of a chemical-free shampoo and 1 cup water. Pour it over your pet, let it dry a little, and then rinse.
