Window Cleaning: Regular window cleaners contain ammonia. They get the job done, but this chemical is very strong and can be dangerous to the environment, as well as humans and pets. To clean windows more naturally, a half gallon of water and four tablespoons of lemon juice mixed well together can get the job done. To skip using paper towels, try an old cotton T-shirt or another type of lint-free, natural fabric. This method can also be used on the mirrors in your home.
Blessing in a Bottle 12 oz. of White Vinegar 12 oz. of Dawn Dish soap 1 tsp. of Laundry Detergent also known as "kitchen Magic" This stuff will get through anything, make your sink and shower shine like new, and save you when just about nothing else works. The laundry detergent is optional-I add it simply to cover some of the vinegar smell!
With small children we're constantly going through carpet and upholstery cleaner. Fortunately, my mom shared this simple homemade recipe using two ingredients that are usually already at home.

Let soak if necessary and rub out with an old rag.
