  • Google the uses of vinegar. I use it for almost all of my cleaning.

  • Gallon water, 2 cups vinegar, 1 cup bleach, 2 caps brown listerine. This makes for an awesome cleaner, period. Bathroom, floor, kitchen, windows, etc. You name it, it cleans it! You can dilute or strengthen by adding or reducing water.

  • Brew a quart of black tea and add a teaspoon of baking soda and 20 drops of Lavender essential oil. This is an exellent carpet refresher, but it's best purpose is to kill dust mites on your mattress. Just spray down the entire mattress top, enough so that it's just damp to the touch. Allow it to dry thoroughly, then vacuum the mattress. The tannins in the tea denature the body proteins of dust mites and kills them. This is much less expensive that commercial dust mite killers, plus it's natural. The reason to use the Lavender is because it smells nice, and it's antifungal and antibacterial.
    To clean a microwave easily, put a sliced lemon into a bowl of water and heat it in the microwave for five minutes, then allow it to sit for another five minutes with the door shut. The steam and lemon oil will soften any rud and cut the grease, and make it very very easy to just wipe it down, no scrubbing! Plus, it smells nice.
