Photo: Green Spring Cleaning Recipe for the Grout :) 7 cups water, 1/2 cup baking soda, 1/3 cup lemon juice and 1/4 cup vinegar - throw in a spray bottle and spray your floor, let it sit for a minute or two... then scrub :)
How to clean your dishwasher: ~Pull out the bottom rack and search the bottom and drain area for debris and clogs. ~Place a measuring cup full of plain white vinegar upright on the top rack, and run the dishwasher on the hottest setting. (The rest of the dishwasher should be empty.) ~Sprinkle 1 cup of baking soda around the bottom, plus some bleach if mold or mildew are a problem. Run a short, complete cycle with the hottest water.
Homemade cleaner, grout cleaner, DIY Grout Cleaner - I tried this last night and it works like a Dream - Heat 1/4 cup vinegar to very hot in microwave, mix 2 teaspoons cream of tarter well - clean grout with solution and toothbrush, only takes a couple of passes with the toothbrush. Bleaches grout back to fabulous white - just wipe with clean sponge. Takes a while to do a whole floor but well worth the effort the results - incredible for all natural clearner - Dottie
i got a free can of scrubbing bubbles- works like oven cleaner but without the harsh chemical smell. Beauty for this type of tiles. The vinegar is better than bleach, i think, for mixing with the baking soda- for my lungs anyway. Bleach in my shower would nearly take me out! Ahaha- i'm a pillar of strength, eh? B)
