10 recipes for cleaning green

My toxic cleaner rant last week sparked an interesting discussion. Many readers had great questions about the toxicity of their particular cleaners and/or how to find good, green alternatives for specific issues, from cleaning up pee and poop accidents to getting tubs and showers sparkling clean.

How to get any stain out

Pinner says: First thing, I'm curious if the wrinkle release spray will smell like the vinegar at all or if the fabric softener in it will mask it...?? Secondly, I'm cleaning my oven racks tomorrow based on this & I'm excited to see how well it works. And finally, I'm pretty psyched (the little things) to try the armpit stain remover. Seriously ppl, everyone gets those, even a little bit.

    1. Scrape up the liquid (I had already done this weeks ago). 2. Sprinkle baking soda or cornstarch on stain to let absorb for 10 minutes and then vacuum. 3. Mix one tablespoon clear dishwashing liquid and one tablespoon white vinegar with two cups of warm water. 4. Using a white cloth (I strongly believe in microfiber washcloths), sponge the stain with the detergent/vinegar solution and blot until all the liquid is absorbed. 5. Sponge off with cold water and blot dry.
