Cleaning Tips

Alternative household cleaning products - Part 2

Quite often the chemicals from commercial cleaning supplies can aggravate your allergies. Did you know that basic household ingredients can produce the same results? Here is a sampling of how certain household ingredients can aid in cleaning. Keep in mind that some people with allergies cannot tolerate the smell of ammonia or bleach.

  • Ceramic tile cleaner - use a combination of 1/4 cup baking soda, 1/2 cup white vinegar, one gallon warm water, and one cup ammonia
  • Furniture polish - combine 1 teaspoon lemon juice with one pint mineral or vegetable oil
  • Mold growth prohibitor - dilute 3/4 cup chlorine bleach in 1 gallon of water and apply to affected areas or apply full-strength white vinegar
  • Oven cleaner - fill a small glass bowl with 1/2 cup full-strength ammonia, place in oven and close. Let stand overnight.
  • Painted wall and woodwork cleaner - combine 1/4 cup ammonia with 1 gallon warm water OR combine l/4 cup liquid dish detergent with 1 gallon water
  • Scouring powder - combine baking soda with a touch of salt
  • Toilet bowl cleaner - combine baking soda and vinegar or use 1/2 cup chlorine bleach
  • Window or mirror cleaner - Combine 3 Tablespoons ammonia, 1 Tablespoon white vinegar and 3/4 cup of water or 1/4 cup white vinegar and 1 quart of water. Wipe dry with newspaper.

Sometimes combining some of the above ingredients creates better cleaners, but remember to NEVER MIX BLEACH AND AMMONIA TOGETHER.
