Natural Solutions for Cleaning & Wellness: Health Remedies and Green Cleaning Solutions Without Toxins or Chemicals by Halle Cottis (Page Street Publishing Co., 2017) is a comprehensive guide to natural and nontoxic cleaning and wellness solutions that you can make at home. This excerpt will help you create a degreaser with natural ingredients. This cleaner is perfect for cleaning your kitchen.

Sometimes you need more than hot water to clean up a stain. Grease can be incredibly stubborn to clean, so it requires a few more ingredients. This solution works well on stovetops.


•1 1/2 cups (355 milliliters) warm distilled water
•2 teaspoons (10 grams) kosher salt
•3/4 cup (177 milliliters) Dr. Bronner’s Sal Suds
•1/2 cup (118 milliliters) distilled white vinegar

How To

1. Add the warm distilled water to a medium-sized bowl and dissolve the kosher salt. Do not leave the salt out of this solution, as this thickens the degreaser.

2. Add the Sal Suds and vinegar and stir lightly.

3. Pour into a spray bottle.
