I was never one for New Year’s resolutions. If I couldn’t do something right here and right now, a change in the date certainly wasn’t going to motivate me. I have, though, been putting off using homemade cleaning products. I’m not usually that messy of a person, but when I want to get to the grime, I’d like to try an alternative to chemicals. So I’ll try the homemade cleaning recipes below for a cleaner start to 2009.

I found some cleaning recipes using ingredients from around my home from www.organizedhome.com:

▪ For kitchen and bathroom surfaces
Mix in a spray bottle:
1 cup white vinegar
1 cup water

Vinegar dissolves dirt and soap scum, deodorizes naturally, and has no coloring agents.



▪ For the grimy bathtub and sinks
Sprinkle baking soda onto surface and scour with a damp sponge. For harsher stains, mix baking soda and water to a paste. Let the mixture sit on the grime for 10 to 20 minutes and scrub away.
