Green Cleaning Supplies

September 13, 2010

Having a few basic supplies at home for making green cleaning solutions is the best way to save both money and time on cleaning at home.  Everything from laundry to cleaning the bathroom can be accomplished using green cleaning tips and supplies.  Basic green cleaning supplies can be purchased at any grocery store:

Green Cleaning Supplies:

White vinegar
Baking soda
Liquid soap
Washing soda
Club soda
Essential oils
Spray bottles
Microfiber cloths

Using these basic cleaning supplies can keep any house clean and tidy.  Club soda is used for loosening and lifting stains on clothes, rugs, and carpet.  Washing soda is great for tougher cleaning jobs becuase it is abrasive, however, it should not be used on delicate floors.

Making easy green cleaning recipes with these supplies is simple enough for any housekeeper to keep their home spick and span.  Many green housecleaning recipes not only smell great and clean well, they are also anti-bacterial, which helps keep family members healthy.

For a basic, all-purpose spray for daily cleanings of counter tops, tables, windows and sinks, fill a spray bottle with two tablespoons of borax, a quarter teaspoon of liquid soap, and water.  Shake bottle, spray and wipe.

For a great green glass cleaner, mix 1 cup of white vinegar, 1 cup of water and a few drops of essential oil to mask the scent of vinegar and keep the house smelling great.  Mix the ingredients in a spray bottle and use a microfiber cloth to clean glass surfaces.
