Powerful, Non-toxic Cleaning Remedies

Vinyl and Linoleum Floors: Mix 1 cup distilled white vinegar and 3 drops of baby oil in 1 gallon of water. Use sparingly on linoleum, being careful not to saturate the flooring.

Toilet Bowl Cleaner: Mix 1/4 cup baking soda and 1 cup white vinegar. Pour into the toilet bowl, let soak for 5 minutes, scrub with cleaning brush, and rinse clean.

Tile Grout Mold: Mix 1 part hydrogen peroxide with 2 parts warm water. Scrub the mixture on moldy areas; let sit for one hour and rinse.

Sink, Tub, Shower, and Coffee Pot Cleaner: Rub in baking soda with a damp sponge or cloth and rinse clean. For tougher jobs, wet surfaces with vinegar and scrub in baking soda as a scouring powder. Vinegar can damage tile grout, so use mindfully without scrubbing or etching grout away.
