April 24, 2013

Hazardous Household Waste is defined as “items containing ingredients that could be harmful to humans, pets or the environment,” which includes many commonly used cleaning products. To get a home that is truly clean, rather than covered in toxic chemicals, try making your own nontoxic cleaners at home. It’s easy! Basic ingredients found in your kitchen can be used to make cleaners for different needs.

 

All-Purpose Cleaner:  Mix 1/2 cup vinegar and 1/4 cup baking soda into 1/2 gallon water. Use for removal of water deposit stains in shower stalls, on buy non prescription viagra online chrome bathroom fixtures, windows, bathroom mirrors, etc.

Air Freshener:  Commercial air fresheners mask smells and coat nasal passages to

diminish the sense of smell. Baking soda or vinegar with lemon juice in small dishes absorbs odors around the house without dulling your sense of smell.

Disinfectant:  Mix 1/4 cup borax into ½ gallon hot water. Use for wiping surfaces.

Bathroom Mold:  Mold in bathroom tile grout is a common problem and can be a

spray bottle and spray on areas with mold. Wait at least one hour before rinsing or using

the shower.

Carpet Cleaner:  Mix equal parts white vinegar and water in a spray bottle. Spray directly on stain, let sit for several minutes, and clean with a brush or sponge, using

warm soapy water.
