Good bye lysol.. so long fantastic... arrivederci Mr. Clean!

I have found vinegar!!

Cheap and environmentally clean, I have found vinegar and its now my BFF.

So I was still using store-bought-brand-cleaning products because I had them and was not going to throw them away.. but this morning I was done with the last one, took water and vinegar and pour it into a squirt bottle and went at it in my bathroom.

I love it! although i had to kind of scrub a little more then with the other harsh products, vinegar did the job great and left my bathroom shiny and clean. I thought it would smell bad.. but no, it went away right away (thats two aways in a sentence.. sorry I am excited lol).

Thank you ladies for directing me in the right direction :)

love you sign

Don't forget  about baking soda :) mix it with a little bit of water to form a paste and use that as a scrub for the gunk :) I just cleaned the grout in my bathroom with baking soda :)

You can also take half a lemon and sprinkle some baking soda on whatever it is you are cleaning and clean that way too - smells GREAT!!!
