I NEVER, EVER buy household cleaners. Vinegar and newspaper to clean mirrors and windows. Vinegar in the washing machine rinse cycle softens the clothes as well as help to clean the skum from the washing machine. Don't buy fabric softners. If I'm washing dishes by hand I sometimes pore a little vinegar in the dishwater. Nothing cuts the grease as well as vinegar. I don't buy prewashes either. I use dishwash detergent and rub in it the spot. I clean my comodes with vinegar. I clean the tub and sinks with baking soda. It's a little abrasive but not like Comet, etc.

To clean my microwave I squeeze the juice from half a lemon into a small bowl of water set the microwave for 5 minutes and let it sit for 5 minutes. The steam loosens the grime so it wipes right off and the lemon gives it a fresh scent!
