NEVER EVER mix ammonia or chlorine bleach with dishsoap because there can be serious chemical reactions that can cause several types of diseases and even death :-o Here are some natural recipes that are safe for living beings and the environment:

All-Purpose Cleaner:

Equal parts white distilled vinegar and water

Soft Scrub:

Baking soda mixed with a bit of water to make a paste

Furniture Polish:

1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup white distilled vinegar

Shake well before using

Toilet Bowl Cleaner:

Sprinkle toilet bowl with baking soda, drizzle with vinegar, let soak for 30 minutes and scrub with toilet brush.

Drain Opener:

1/2 cup baking soda

1/2 cup vinegar

Pour baking soda down the drain and follow with vinegar. Cover and let sit 30 minutes. Flush with boiling water.


Daily Shower Spray:

1/3 cup rubbing alcohol

1 cup water

Put 2 cups rubbing alcohol & 1/2 cup white vinegar in a clean, empty 1 gal. milk jug. Fill the rest of the way with water, squeeze (approximately 1 tsp.) dawn dish soap in. Put top on and give it a light shake. Fill a spray bottle. Use in the bathroom anywhere, kitchen counters, windows, mirrors, anywhere. Safe and super cheap. Never leaves a residue.

If you mix one part water, one part dish det. (such as Joy, etc.) and one part clear ammonia in a spray container. Just shake and spray. It is also great for taking out stains on clothes.
