Keep it Green while you Spring Clean

It’s that time when many of us do a thorough clean of our home after a long winter.  A few of our basic pantry items can do the job just as well or better than the heavy duty supermarket cleaners.  Here’s five great tips that don’t need more than four ingredients: Vinegar, baking soda, rubbing alcohol and lemon.

Mattress:  Sprinkle baking soda on mattress.  Leave for 1 hour and then use upholstery attachment and vacuum. Spray mattress with rubbing alcohol.   Let it dry.  Remake bed with fresh sheets (see tip below).

Mildew towels or clothes: Wash your load of towels on the hot cycle and add 1 cup of vinegar to the load. Let the washer do its job. 

Dishwasher:  Place two cups of vinegar in a container in the top rack.  Sprinkle baking soda on the bottom and sides.  Run on the hottest cycle.

Microwave: Place one cup of vinegar with one cup of water in an uncovered container and microwave to a boil to let it steam and clean.  Use microfiber cloth to wipe clean.

Homemade all purpose cleaner: ¼ cup of vinegar, 4 cups of HOT water, 2 tbsp of baking soda, juice of 1 lemon.  Combine all ingredients in a spray or squeeze bottle.  Use liberally throughout the house.
