Natural Cleaning Recipes
A safe way to unclog drains
Pour a handful of baking soda and 1/2 cup of white vinegar down the drain. Cover the drain tightly for one minute. Repeat process if needed. If that doesn’t work, pour 1/2 cup salt and 1/2 cup baking soda down the drain, followed by six cups of boiling water. Let sit for several hours or overnight, then flush with water.
Cleaning the Bathroom
Use Gel-Gloss or Turtle Wax on the shower walls. Water rolls off it and doesn’t leave hard water marks.
Mix water and baking soda to form a paste to scrub fixtures and tile.
Sprinkle baking soda in the toilet bowl, add a splash of vinegar to make it fizz, and then clean with a toilet brush.
