Add orange peels (or any citrus peel) to a quart of white vinegar in a closed container and let it set for two weeks. Combine citrus/vinegar solution half/half with water and use for cleaning. Works on floors, tile, fixtures, etc. Smells good and is tough on scum! Best of all there are no chemicals. This can also be used on pets to control fleas.....
ONLY use this and it leaves floor spotless. (Heavy duty floor cleaner recipe: cup white vinegar 1 tablespoon liquid dish soap cup baking soda 2 gallons tap water, very warm.) It leaves everything smelling amazing.
Homemade cleaner. *Works like a charm & smells great too* take the empty bottle of your favorite cleaner. Don't worry about emptying it out. Add 2/3 cup of your favorite fabric softner, 1/3 cup baking soda, 1/3 cup of vinegar, & fill remainder up with hot or warm water. Your counters & floors will sparkle, stains come up easily, & it smells fabulous! For more cleaning tips, follow me on Twitter @Crystal Faile
These lemon dust cloths take just minutes to prepare and can be stored in an airtight jar until you're ready to use them. Sometimes dusting with a dry cloth does more harm then good as it moves the dirt around instead of catching it. These cloths are damp and infused with vinegar to help catch and kill the bugs at the same time. The addition of olive oil and lemon rind bring a soft polish to your furniture.
The homemade "Oxiclean" is awesome!! another pinner said "I tried it on a 5 year old white baby onesie that was discolored around the neck and it worked just like or even faster than the real Oxiclean! I have a bright white onesie again!"
