I'm thinking about making my own cleaning products.Is it hard to do?Answer Question
I'm not all gung ho about making my own.... but, I do use baking soda and vinegar a lot! Baking soda is a great non scratch scouring powder. It works good on greasy things, like the stove top. Just be ready to do a lot of rinsing. I tend to use it more on stuff that I can rinse in the sink (like the burner pans from my stove)
If you dump some baking soda in your kitchen sink and rinse it down with vinegar, it can help rinse away residue in the drain that can cause clogs. It won't cure an already badly clogged sink, but can help keep it from becoming that way. It also will get rid of stinky smells if you have a garbage disposal in the sink.
baking soda lightly sprayed w/ vinegar can stop ants from coming in. I've done it around my kitchen door frame when I had an ant problem last year and it worked better than the commercial ant spray that I bought at the store.
Vinegar in the washer is good for odors
