  • If you want to clean your hardwood/tile floors without any harsh chemicals, I would recommend a steam mop/steam cleaner. I use a Haan steam system for my tiles, bathrooms and even counter tops. The floors are clean and the bacterias are gone. No bad smell, no danger for kids or animals in the house.

  • my mom uses a cap full of bleach and then water..te smells not tat strong
    also you can pour about 1/2 to 3/4 cup baking soda into the drain it un cloggs it
    rubbing alcohol is a good cleaner for windows/glass bc it evaporates and doesnt leave streeks
    a strong glass clean reciepe is 1 cup rubbing alcohol,1 cup water , 1 tablespoon clear, non-sudsing ammonia
    an all purpose ouse cleaner reciepe is 1 T clear, non-sudsing ammonia,1 T clear laundry detergent ,2 cups water
    and a furniture polisher is 1 cup olive oil(which will give it it shine) 1/2 cup lemon juice (which will clean it)

  • you can use less vinegar too, or add an essential oil to it to change the smell. i use orange oil.
