Natural Cleaning Products?

I've tried natural cleaning products, and can't find any that work as well as the stuff loaded with chemicals. They smell better, but just don't seem as effective. What natural products do you use that work well?

  • We use Seventh Generation and they work just fine for us. We made the switch about 5 months ago =)

  • I use Method brand and another brand called Baby Ganics - seventh generation dishsoap and detergent does not work for us but works well for my moms - not sure if its a water difference or what..

  • Vinegar, baking soda and lemon juice! They require a bit more elbow grease, but it's so much better than using chemicals!

  • WHITE VINEGAR!!! You can use it for puts shine into tile floors and takes hard water spots off your dishes, just dump some in dishwasher before you start the load.

  • Seventh Generation does work well as a dish soap and bathroom cleaner. I make my own laundry detergent and use 1 cup of white vinegar in my Final Rinse as a fabric softener.

  • This is what we use for most cleaning (initially used as part of my daughter's 6th grade science fair project). It is cheap (my favorite) and non toxic.
    ¼ cup white vinegar
    ¾ cup warm tap water
    1 tablespoon baking soda
    10 drops of tea tree oil (antibacterial, antifungal, etc.)
    2 drops oil of lavender essential oil (antiseptic and smells nice)
