Green Cleaning

I imagine we will all catch the spring cleaning bug very soon. I thought I would share some of the green products I use around the house. Most of the cleaning products I use I make myself.  There are a few I still buy and I love Method products. My friend Kate introduced me to this very helpful website. Click here to check it out. I use their all-purpose cleaner for almost everything around the house especially, in the kitchen. I use it for everyday granite counter cleaning, glass stove top and the sink. I also use it every where in the bathroom.

baking soda

I use baking soda to clean the tough spots on my glass stove top. If you put a little bit on a sponge with a little water it really cleans up even the hardest food stains.  I also use it to clean my toilets. I put a bit in the toilet and then I add about a 1/2 cup of vinegar. I let it sit for a while. I also put some on the toilet brush and use it to scrub all over. It really leaves your toilet nice and sparkly.


My friend Kate introduced me to Borax about a couple of years ago. It is now one of my go to cleaning products. You can put a little in your dishwasher to substitute for jet dry. I use it in my all-purpose cleaning solution and I use it in the best floor tile cleaning solution. Click here for the recipe. I also add a little bit of organic dishwashing soap (to pick up any grease) and a glug of organic window cleaner( I love Methods window cleaner) for the shine. It will disinfect and leave it so shiny and clean!

Distilled-White-VinegarAs I mentioned earlier I use vinegar for my all-purpose cleaner, for my toilets and for the best floor tile cleaner. I also use it on my hard words. I put equal parts hot water and distilled white vinegar and add a little Method window cleaner for a shine. It leaves my floors clean and with a nice shine.

I wish you all a happy spring cleaning and I hope if you don’t use green products you might give these a try. They work just as good, if not better. It’s cheaper AND you don’t have to breath in nasty harmful chemicals!
